Hobkin had a Very Good Day today. The little fuzz beast adores corn muffins, but he doesn’t get them very often because they’re quite fattening. Well, today I was baking a batch and apparently didn’t use enough non-stick spray. As I was trying to shake them out, I lost control of the baking tin, and a muffin top tore off to go tumbling to the floor, where an opportunistic skunk–waiting for just such a serendipitous occurrence–gleefully pounced on it. I didn’t have the heart to take it away from him, plus he inhaled it so fast I would have been hard pressed to get it anyway. Wish I’d thought to grab the camera . . .
Researching Egyptian mythology, although I’m not finding anything that really sparks my interest to explore deeper for Cricket. I think folklore is typically a better source of inspiration for Cricket stories than mythology, although, of course, there’s a substantial overlap between them.
