At home I took a nap in the basement and Ben got a little homework done. I made chicken and zucchini pasta with pesto and green beans. Jack ate really well today! He's not very voracious for us and gets fussy about whether he will feed himself or let us feed him. So it's a good day when he puts down a good amount - even greens!
We took a stroll around Target to get autumnal-themed candies for work tomorrow and a frozen pizza for Friday's dinner (yes, we are living large!). After Jack had his milk, Good Night Moon, and his teeth "brushed" Ben and I watched Community, Parks and Rec, and Big Bang Theory. Dishes, blogging, pack a lunch, and I'm off to bed!

We stuffed our faces with garlic knots from Virgilio's. I'm still mourning the closing of their Lakewood restaurant.
Today we went to the zoo! Not pictured, the cupcakes we ate afterwards from Lovely Confections. Here Jack and Wolfie take turns pointing at the elephant. Wolfie is his play buddy that we know from our doggy daycare owners.
We finally got a good view of the orangutan family, including Hesty who was born just one month after Jack.
The Lorakeet exhibit was so cool! There were about 50 birds living in there so you saw them everywhere you turned. You could buy little cups of nectar to feed them. They hopped right on your your hand!

Wow, yesterday was a bad day at work. Over 15 hours long, had to start the day alone, complicated patients, and a code blue. I thought about blogging more about the day, but frankly I want to forget it.
Today we signed a new mortgage that will save us oodles of money, had lunch at wich which, and now we're playing in the cool fall breezes at a playground. Three cheers for days off!

Organizing one part of the house inspires me to do others. After I sort the books scattered about, my craft area needs an overhaul. Then our basement storage room. It's taken a beating with baby and maternity storage.

I missed the turntable, especially in One Day More. But aside from that it was a fantastic performance. Really incredible singing, and the trimmed down version clipped along at a nice pace (one verse of Castle on a Cloud is plenty, thank you very much).
I rooted through my ticket collection this morning and found my old stub. (Ben laughs at my ticket collection. Calls it my secret hoard. But when you've done it for over 20 years it's hard to stop.)
