Spring has sprung!

No, not really. It's going to get cold again, but the first sign that spring is coming: The windows are open. The windows have not been open since, I don't know, October. The high today is near 60, and I can't remember what to wear when it's this warm. Do I need a jacket? A sweater?

Here's a rare action shot of Mirando and Geronimo fighting. It's difficult to get a non-blurred photo of them. I'm thinking of sending it to National Geographic.

And here's Mirando, ferociously defending Fort Desk Chair:

Knitting: There are kitty pictures today because the knitting isn't exciting enough to be photographed. I finished the shrug part of Tubey, and I'm happy with the fit. I'm starting the body today. A bit further on Tempting II.

Reading: Finished the fluffy book. It was cute, and helped reinforce the outline for my own murder mystery. I was starting to worry that my body count might be too low, but I don't think so. I'm deciding whether I want to stick with fluffy books until I read The Year of Magical Thinking (an extremely non-fluffy book) for book club, so I haven't picked my next book yet.

Writing: Well, I had something else to do all day yesterday, so chapter three is going to take a bit longer. Every time I write the obligatory meeting-the-potential-love-interest scene, it's all dorky and cheesy. But then, when I read them in cozy mysteries, I always think they're dorky and cheesy. So maybe they have to be that way. Or maybe I'll put it off till chapter four. I also have a couple of characters I feel I'm neglecting. If they're going to be legitimate suspects, I need to make sure they have a stronger presence.

Cooking: Nothing of note since Pasta Geronimo. If anyone decides to make it, let me know what you think and if you made any note-worthy adjustments.

Your kitties are so cute and happy playing in the sunshine :-)

I tried to make Pasta Sam, but it didn't work out. Next time I'll get his claws removed BEFORE I try to stick him in a pot of boiling water.
