Hurricane Sandy Day 2 and GF Lasagna Recipe

Day 2

The food supplies are still good however; we have seem to run out of potato chips. 

Power and internet are still up and running.  I have finished all of my homework in preparation for power loss. I spent last night putting my mind into that of a serial killer.  That was perfectly offset by the weather.  There is flooding in areas already and the rain shows no sign of abating.  The winds have picked up and some of the apartments have chosen to evacuate. 

Television and reading are our refuge in this storm.  Also a lot of napping has taken place.  All of us are home since schools and work were closed.  We are still getting along.  I think the Naps help with that.

Luna has started eying the food supply and doing random things like sleeping on the dining room table.  I think she covets what we have left of the food supplies she showed no interest in the potato chips however, I am worried that the lunch meat may go missing.  My mother in law says that this is normal behavior for a Cat but I am starting to doubt her feline proclivities are the motive.

It is dark a lot and I have learned to appreciate some sunlight.  It seems the perfect day to carve a pumpkin.  We think it is a pumpkin, it looks exactly like a pumpkin however, it was in a bin that was marked watermelon.  Either it is a pumpkin or we are carving a very ugly orange watermelon.  Either way it will be carved today.
