Knitting to Billie Holiday is pretty relaxing.

There was a New York Times article today about a 2-year-old shooting his mother. Sadly, it's not the first article like that I have read. And because the gun manufacturers have immunity (thanks to senators like Bernie Sanders who voted for that), they have no incentive to make "smart" guns that can only be used by their owners. The technology is there, but the political will isn't (yet). Hopefully Hillary will change all this...or at least try. It's definitely part of her platform. (Unlike Donald Trump, who wants "open carry" everywhere.)
Zoe just asked me to "unzip the light later" so she can get used to it. I think she's talking about the hotel curtains.

There is a fountain outside our hotel, so I gave Zoe a penny and told her to make a wish. She wished for pizza. Easily achieved :)

So excited that Clinton won 3 states tonight (including Pennsylvania, the big prize). Can't wait for our first female President.

On Facebook, a college friend (now living about three hours away) was talking about a cat she's about to get. But I thought she recently got a new cat, named Dexter. So I asked, "What happened to Dexter?"

She wrote, "Ohh, Dexter. He had to go back to his foster home because he hated us. Seriously! I'll tell the story when I get the chance."

I love this. I love cats, and wish I wasn't allergic. I feel like I might have been one in a past life.

There's a spot on our couch that the kids think is too bright (not all the time, but when the sun is setting, for example). Anyway, I was sitting in that sun puddle, knitting, and I put my sunglasses on. I feel a bit like a cat. Not that they wear sunglasses, but they like sun puddles.

I like the idea of reincarnation, but what if you came back as something horrible? 
Worsted weight yarn is my favorite.

Season 2 of Catastrophe is out. I always say I'm going to watch one episode and then I watch them all. But I'm going to lunch Episode 6 later :)

Zoe promised Eric a while back that she wouldn't make us go to Baskin Robbins anymore. Now she says her stuffed turtle wants to go and it's not her fault. Hmmm...

A relaxed fit cardi/jacket. Sleeves up next.

More book recommendations...both of Mindy Kaling's books are good. One essay in the second one was possibly the funniest thing I've ever read (an alternate, parallel existence where Mindy Kaling is a Latin teacher at Dalton instead of working in Hollywood...told entirely in emails and texts. Another writer who's good at that is Lauren Myracle.) She's supposed to be writing a third book, with her former Office co-star and erstwhile boyfriend, B.J. Novak.
