She went outside in the backyard a little while ago and lay down on the bricks to toast up, I'm guessing. She seldom does that, preferring the driveway side since it gets full sun. A minute ago I heard her come in her doggie door and noticed something stuck on her tail. It was a leaf -- for decoration. Not a good sign. I have two more weeks of this cleaning to look forward to...ugh.
I figured while I was at it, I might as well clean the oven. It's self cleaning so how hard can that be...apparently a little tougher than I remembered. It takes hours for it to cycle through and our kitchen is now hot enough to bake cupcakes outside the oven, and smells like... weird stuff. I turned on the vent to at least suck out the smell-- and hopefully some of the heat. I realized a little while ago I forgot to take out the oven racks, though (this time) I did remember to take out the oven liner. I cooked the old oven liner that last time I cleaned the oven.
Let's just say I have crossed off another possible career path for myself. Maria, come home!!!!!
