Ducks and veggies

On Tuesday I had to go get some knitting needles from a local yarn store, so I picked up my bff and we headed west. Afterward, we hung out by the Jordan Creek mall talking and watching the ducks and the fishes in the pond.

On Wednesday I got to get some free organic veggies thanks to my friends the Foxes. They have left for the week, and asked me if I could pick up their weekly crop from the farm share they invested in. It was quite a treat.

Slumber party

On Friday sisters and I went to Centro for lunch. We had our meal on the patio. It was a lovely day.

Then they came over after work, and we watched Mad Men. The next day, we made a delicious lunch, using the tomatoes and eggplant from my parents' garden.

Then they had to go to work, and hubby and I went to celebrate his brother-in-law's 30th birthday at Saylorville lake. We mostly hung out with all the kids, splashing them and making balloon bombs.
We were definitely exhausted when we got home.
Sunday we stayed at home and did house chores. And in the evening, we relaxed. Another great weekend passed too quickly.
