Jason changes the batteries in the smoke/CO alarm like clockwork when the time changes twice a year. I guess the mucking about with the timing of the changes has taken us past the life of the batteries as we were awakened at 2 AM by the peeping of the alarm wishing to be fed a new battery. After all the ruckus I was wide awake but at least I had some nice library books to keep me company.
Earlier in the week Gwen felt in the mood to pose (or maybe she was just studiously ignoring me and my camera). It can be tough to get a nice picture of a black cat that doesn’t wash out the eyes but if she sits still long enough I can eventually accomplish it.
