Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

I doubt that I'll finish any more books in 2016, though who knows? It's raining today so I might. However, I have finished another book since my last post on the subject. This one is The Stupidest Angel by Christopher Moore, something of a Christmas story. A fun quick read, this book includes several characters from previous novels by the author.

Once again it's raining in Southern California. Since we've been struck by drought here, I took a look at a website that includes measurements of the status of our state's water reserves. It's about two weeks out of date, but nearly half of the reservoirs are more full than average, so hopefully by now, two storms farther on, they're even better.

Last night we had a Friday night service and Hanukkah event at one of our friends' homes. My beloved baked a couple of dishes for it, including rugala and challah. Yummy! It was a very pleasant evening.

I just let Sven the cat in the sliding glass door. Apparently he couldn't resist going walkabout in the rain, and so he tracked in water on arrival. Presently after extensive ablutions and a visit to the cat food site upstairs, he's curled up in a basket...and his head has poked up, periscope-like, glaring at me for daring to comment on him. Ha! Try and stop me!
