what's up weekly.

this week was really fun, since we got to see lots of friends we don't get to see very often.

first, zach and emily came from des moines to stay the weekend, and with the weather being what it was in central iowa on sunday, it looked like they might become semi-long-term housemates.  which would have been a-ok with us.  while they were here, they made pizza with the kids, babysat so we could go on a date, introduced todd to stout, and taught us how to play settlers of catan.  (yeah, yeah, yeah.  this weekend was the first time we ever played it - and the first time i'd ever even seen what the game board looks like.  i still won, so who's laughing now?)

then on tuesday, i got to spend the morning with my friend kristy, who reads books and runs half-marathons and grows a crazy number of tulips in her yard, though it's winter, so i suspect she's really only been reading books as of late.  she loves old houses, and used to dance ballet, and named her first son atticus, and is clearly what i would call a bosom friend if i were anne shirley.  

the only other highlight that i can think of off the top of my head: a grocery pick-up involving the collection of five gallons of laundry detergent, one gallon of olive oil, two jars of grassfed ghee and some lactofermented pickles off the back of a semi in the freezing cold.  that, friends, was a very good morning.

and that seems to be how our week went down.

"Bosom friends" sounds like an excellent springboard for embarrassing/fantastic nicknames to use for each other in public. This is all you, Todd.
