  • We slept in this morning.  Not ’til noon, of course, just a couple extra hours of slumber.
    • The dogs were ecstatic to see us, and very appreciative of us filling their food bowls.
    • The cats, on the other hand, gave me the stinky eye as I gave them their breakfast. If I’m not mistaken, they’ve spent the day complaining online about the service at our establishment.
  • Moonshine the Wonder Lab must have decided to cook his own second breakfast this morning, because Irish Woman was called to the kitchen by the clicking sound of our stove lighting and the faint smell of plastic burning.
    • She discovered one burner lit, but still trying to ignite, and a larger burner pumping raw gas out as fast as it could.
    • A plastic platter that I had set on the back of the stove had a hold burned through it and was making quite the smell.
    • Luckily, she caught it before it was a major problem.  However, I have now been tasked with finding a way to affix a spring to keep the baby gate to the kitchen closed.
    • This is, of course, after his adventure last week in which an entire platter of french toast disappeared after a brief incursion by our beloved pet into the food preparation area.
  • The rough draft of the latest story is done. I’m basking in that afterglow of “I got the story out” that ends when I start proofreading and find all of the warts on it that I can.
    • It’s not like anything I’ve done before, and I’m not even sure which genre it goes into.  We’ll see what it looks like after a few rereads.

    It’s not the only time Moonshine has attempted to gas us out.

    Hey DB;

    I have one of those counter surfers also…Must be a lab thing. We will await your book with bated breath and open wallets.
