Monday Morning Circle Time

Good morning everyone! So that was a weirdly spring-like weekend. We absolutely enjoyed the balmy temperatures but I couldn’t help feeling a nagging “we’re all going to pay for this later”  sense of eventual of doom. But nevermind!

So how did you spend this fine January weekend? Biking? Strolling Gardening? Patio-dining?

Maria tried Boxcar and may be in love with their charcuterie plate–or it could just be a very delicious dalliance. She’s also been speaking all hoity-toity like because she watched A LOT of Downton Abbey in between cartoons, walks, and building of LEGOs.

Jon spent a good portion of the weekend de-Christmas-ing the house inside and out (and is almost done). Sunday got us out of the house a bit with an impromptu trip to the Natural History museum, ending the day with dinner at H Street Country Club and dessert at Dangerously Delicious Pies.

Jen: Friday night was spent watching every Portlandia episode ever made. Saturday was filled with cleaning, purging and organizing. The kids were invited to a last-minute sleepover which freed us up to get a fantastic late dinner at Toki Underground. Sunday began with Ashtanga at Yoga District on H, a stop at Hill’s Kitchen for a new cake pan, a pilgrimage to Whole Foods for Gluten free lasagna noodles and feeding said noodles to in laws for dinner. She shooed all the boys in her house to bed by 9 so she could watch Downton Abbey all by herself.

Claudia discovered the upstairs bar at Lavagna on Friday night.  Saturday she took advantage of the nice weather by taking a long walk around Yards Park with the dog, followed by a run along the river.  After catching up on season one of Downton Abbey, she headed out to VA for dinner with friends.  Sunday was chores, some office work, a very late brunch in NW, followed by an epic Jenga match, and then some downtime with the roommates, dog and Sunday night TV.
