Just jotting down some thoughts.
It's raining. First rain in a long time. It's actually rather nice but a bit of a bummer for Biscuit's outdoor field trip tomorrow.
Today was my first day back at work. It was fine. I like my job and my co-workers and it was good to start reconnecting with them and projects. And a friend took me out to lunch for soup so that was good.
Oscar can (and will) go 9 hours without eating. But he did eventually take the bottle and doesn't seem any worse for the wear. Although he seemed to want extra snuggles and nursing tonight which I can totally understand and am in favor of.
This apple cake is good. Smitten Kitchen. No surprise there.
I just finished reading Matched and I think my dysptopian teenage romance reading phase may be coming to an end. I felt like I was reading a mashup of The Giver and Hunger Games. Of course I say that now but the sequel is coming out November 1 and I'm pretty sure I'll be reading it. Now I'm reading Buddhism for Mothers of Young Children which is a bit of a departure from the dystopian teenage romance stuff. I'm also listening to Sarah Vowell's The Wordy Shipmates on audiobook. I like her but not sure I'm following all this history very well via audiobook format.
I am excited about Biscuit's Halloween costume. It's a bit, how shall I say it, esoteric? Anyway, nobody will know what she is but she's going to be the dragon guarding the apple tree from Harold and the Purple Crayon. I LOVE that book. Oscar is going to be Harold. Biscuit has her costume all planned out and I can't wait to see how she creates her vision.
Speaking of Halloween, found this in her backpack today
And on that note, goodnight.
