Mooning About

I would show you photos of our weekend, but it pretty much either involved sleeping off allergies on the couch or hanging out with a small young lady whose parents would prefer I not share her photo publicly.

Friday evening, we spent an hour at the local coffeeshop gathering the last of the daylight before heading back to our friends’ hotel for Chinese food and beers and homemade cookies.

Saturday was spent vegging, although I did manage to get a load of laundry done.

Today, Rudi and I hit the farmers market early on and then met up with John, Nicole, and Juliet for a trip to the zoo. We learned that zebras are very aggressive, saw baby gorillas and orangutans, and admired a false gharial’s teeth and toenails. We had a delicious al fresco dinner before spending the last of the waning daylight at the playground.

Rudi and I returned home just in time to watch the Nationals’ give up the go-ahead runs (we quickly turned off the tv, but the damage was done) in the third game of the NLDS playoffs. Fingers are crossed for a better outcome Tuesday.

And with that, the moon has set on yet another lovely weekend. Back to the workweek grind!
