As I look outside my window: Dark clouds are rolling in. Another rainy day here in the Bay Area. Good thing I'm staying in doors today. Wouldn't want to drag the newborn out in this.
Right now I am: Holding an almost asleep baby, typing one-handed, drinking coffee, and chatting with the toddler.
On my bedside table: Same as last week -- Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls by David Sedaris; Wild by Cheryl Strayed; Five Days at Memorial by Sheri Fink
On my tv this week: J and I started watched the new Dirk Gently series (definitely different than the Stephan Mangan version, but I like it), Zapped (crazy British sitcom), and The Good Place (has potential). I knocked out a few more Gilmore Girls and Penny Dreadful episodes. Arthur and I watched a few episodes of The Great British Bake-off Season 2 (missed this season).
Listening to: Not much, although the other day I did put on The Lumineers Pandora channel. I love the mix of softer indie rock for a quieter afternoon.
On the menu for this week:
- Monday - Kale Caesar Pasta Salad
- Tuesday - Chicken Pot Pie
- Wednesday - Smothered Pork Chops
- Thursday - Santa Fe Chicken
- Friday - Leftovers

On my to do list: I need to call the post office to inquire about a passport appointment. We moving forward getting myself and both boys passports. I also need to buy stamps for the birth announcements and pick up Q's birth certificate.

What I am creating: Today I'm hosting crop day at my house. I'm hoping work finish my last three November design team cards and work on Q's Project Life album.
My simple pleasures: Cooler, rainy weather (I miss fall); more than 3 hours of sleep at a time; ability to read during nighttime feedings (yeah for the iPad)
Looking around the house: I cleaned the kitchen on Friday, but failed to tackle the living and playroom. Guess what I get to do tomorrow...
From the camera: Zoo train selfie!
