What a noisy storm - we like the inch of rain, but we didn't need the racket. After listening to Pepper fussing in the hall I finally opened the door to my bedroom and she headed for my closet. I picked up the row of boots from the floor, moved a couple of other pairs of shoes (because Cookie followed Pepper, and Cookie has been known to carry shoes around). Cookie finally gave up on my room after being told she wasn't allowed on the bed, and Pepper settled in peacefully under the large hanging plastic garment bag that is full of plastic sagging shelves of sweaters. She couldn't see flashes or hear the thunder in there and slept through the night (as it appeared to me when I peeked in during a bathroom run in the wee hours.) They all have a favorable opinion about my closet since our February campout.

Another batch of granola is in the oven. I bagged several servings to add to a birthday box to a friend, but it normally lasts two to three weeks if I eat a half cup most mornings. There are six cups of stuff (3 of oatmeal, one of hulled sunflower seeds, one of almond slivers, and one of raisins added at the end) plus the oil and honey. Now that I've made it a few times I'll have to do the math, but I'm sure it's less expensive than the store bought, and it tastes a lot better. Because it's a bit clumped the measurements after baking mean you're getting some air pockets in the measure.

I have a writing project to work on so I shouldn't distract myself with decluttering projects. Lets see if I can stick to that. :)
