3 coffees and 1 tea later

Dear Spudguns:

I was unceremoniously woken this morning by the fire alarm. Seems they did not get the whole job finished yesterday when they remodeled the alarm system here at mom's building.
Ninja, is having a hell of a week at work. She called me yesterday wanting to know if I had heard from mom, as she is having some sort of crazied need for our mother to make her soup. Of which it seems I am not needed for because she's got it in her head she wants homemade chicken soup. She doesn't trust me to make it for her given I am a vegetarian. Well la-tee-da whatever.
Two goals for today, the first being to finally finish reading "As Always Julia" which I have been dipping into here and there for the last few months. The other to make a Newfie bread pudding. If I can find where mother hid the pudding bag.
I made a lemon cheesecake last night. Taking full advantage of the use of the kitchen gadgets, which let's face it, is the main reason I like cooking at mother's.  And of course, the grocery store is closer too.
Well, time to get back to the book.  To any of my Spudguns who might be traveling today, stay safe.
