Elizabeth Culmer, only a *little* bit crazy...

Quick update before Nick and I go do more stuff:

My flight from Ithaca to Detroit went smoothly and we landed early. My flight from Detroit to MSP, on the other hand, was a mess. We left nearly an hour and a half late, first because of some mechanical trouble (indicator lights on the navigation system acting up) and then because they let on some additional passengers who'd missed other flights. Then once we finally got to MSP, we were stuck at the gate for over ten minutes because there wasn't a gate agent to work the jet bridge, and then the person who came to fill in was very bad at it and couldn't figure out which of the airplane doors to aim for. *sigh* I felt very bad for the people who had connecting flights.

But Nick picked me up, we grabbed takeout from McDonald's, and that was all right.

On Sunday we started by going to Nick's church for the 10am service, which was neat. In the afternoon, we did the following: saw Minnehaha falls and walked down Minnehaha Creek to the Mississippi and back; ate lunch at the Nook (a local burger place); visited the Minneapolis Institute of Art; visited the Walker sculpture garden (including Spoonbridge and Cherry, which apparently has become an iconic symbol of the Twin Cities?); drove past our Mom's childhood home; and then walked around a bit of Lake Nokomis and stopped to have some hard cider and watch the water since we were already in the area. Then we grabbed some food from the takeout section of Nick's grocery store and watched four episodes of Good Omens, which we enjoyed very much.

It was a good day. :D

Today we have started by taking an hour or so to catch up on our own internet stuff, after which the plan is to visit a local cidery and another one of the local lakes. We will go to Frost's for dinner, and finish the evening by watching the final two episodes of Good Omens. Also presumably lunch will happen at some point.

I'm not sure what the plan is for tomorrow morning, but from noon to 3-ish Nick has a volunteer shift at a local animal shelter, after which we will drive up to Cass Lake. I will probably spend part of that time petting and/or walking dogs, but I might borrow his car and disappear for a bit to do... I dunno, unspecified tourist things. Or possibly just another stint of catching up on my own internet stuff. We'll see how it goes.

And now I am off to catch up on my email, because there is only so much I can handle on my tiny phone screen. *wry*
