I had a couple of oddly scheduled days, and after the weekend Monday night was gone before I knew it...and an early Tuesday shift after that. Esme and Daddy have been busy at home and I've done a little with her each night when I get home. I have a late shift tomorrow so we can do some things before I have to go in. And - Halloween plans are shaping up. Looks like we'll have several events to go to :)

//She said she learned that lightning causes more deaths each year than tornadoes. Also, in the U.S. the most lightning strikes happen in Florida, so she is glad we don't live in Florida. She was surprised about not standing near a tree in a storm, and about the lightning being a branched bolt with several directions not just one line.
