Quick Takes # 144 ~ Brain Dump

  1. Dr Daddy is on-call all week and so far so good, though the service was so busy he actually worked last week in return for some back-up help this coming weekend.  The older two are asking after him a lot but seem to be dealing ok with the whole 'Daddy still at the hospital' at bedtime. 
  2. Government Shut-down: Annoyed but not really effected. Heart and prayers go out to those for whom this effects their health and wellbeing.
  3. Hoping it is all resolved before the Little Flower Run as I was planning on run/walking at Valley Forge Park ~ which is currently closed.  
  4. Weather: What the what??? The week started fine, 70's in October ~ ok I can wear a short sleeve shirt with my jeans and stick with iced Coffee with my pumpkin doughnut but 80's is just not right.
  5. Took the hint again from my fashion guru Ana and picked up a pair of these; and I agree quite the fall shoe find!!
  6. Took the kids to a local big garden when Lisbeth had a teacher workday off and for the first time they each took a real interest in the different flowers. We then headed off the children's corner of the garden where much fun was had in the pumpkin maze.
  7. If you are still reading these bizarre brain dump of a set of Takes ~ Thank you ~ Have a lovely weekend.

  1. I got the same shoes too! Triplets!

  2. Yes, still reading :)

  3. My biggest beef with down is that we can't go to national parks or to the zoo! Obviously there are bigger issues, but I just want to be able to go to the Smithsonian :P
