Blackout prep

I woke up this morning thinking of all the things I need to do before 4. Turn off the Windows laptop and the Chromebook I use for webcam viewing and gather all the flashlights in one spot and... it's ridiculous. If the lights go out at 4 as planned (and they probably won't go out until 4:30 or 5), I'll be in bed asleep at 10 so we're only talking 6 hours. AND plenty of people get caught in electrical outages of that length with no notice at all ... and live to tell the tale.

I did pull some fried chicken out of the freezer to have with a salad for dinner.

My pool theory lives. It seems that when the pool is packed on Saturday, there are rarely any swimmers on Sunday. True today. There were a couple of people there for a little bit but no crowd. Even the locker room was sparsely populated.

I started a new book for pool swim - Smoke Gets in Your Eyes by Caitlin Doughty - it's about her years working in a crematory. So far, so good. The author is also the reader which generally does not work too well but she's doing a very excellent job.

I finished my novel last night - Hopefuls by Jennifer Chase - very excellent - also another very excellent reader. In fact, I went to Audible this morning to see if I could find another book ready by the same woman and while she's done a ton, none looked interesting. I have a new book to start tonight - the first in a series that already has 6 books - about an assassin. I hope it's great.

Time now to clean up the breakfast dishes and get to the sewing room. The baseball game is on TV today! First for 2017. I'm excited.
