Snow! Beautiful, fluffy, gorgeous, soft snow!

The show on Sunday was fun, if not a raging success. We paid for the table plus some, got rid of plenty of stuff, and had a good time, so it's hard to complain about not getting rich; Sunday is always much slower than Saturday, and we couldn't get space on Saturday. Many double-takes at the belly, and much delight from those who weren't too shy to ask if I was pregnant or just suddenly, very selectively fat. :P

Guppy feels like a whole school of guppies this morning, wiggle, wiggle, wiggle. I am rather sore and worn down from the weekend (last night I was REALLY wishing for stronger pain meds), so I'm going to take the day easy, do some programming, make some bread, do a load of laundry, and not kill myself getting anything major done (except clean up after the cat.... WHY, when we've got only 3 rugs, does she pick those few rugs to throw up on?!). I've got a routine appointment tomorrow morning, and a massage and adjustment on Wednesday.

Sketch Fest on Friday! Please report any spam comments you find; I found one older piece that had quite a few that had snuck in during a previous Sketch Fest and I like to get these deleted asap. Registration improvements I've made since then should keep them to a dull roar, but extra eyes are always welcome! I got quite a number of updates done to the site shortly after the last Sketch Fest, and comment functions are improved a lot - most of it is backend, but not all; if you have a nickname on file, it will now recognize your old entries and substitute your name with your nickname, plus add a link to your page. Replies now link to your page, too. I also found a few other places that nicknames were not showing correctly and fixed those. I have just a few more things I want to tweak before Friday, but we shall see. If you have a pet request, do let me know - my brain is more swiss cheesy than usual, so there may be something I've been meaning to do that I've simply forgotten about. New ideas welcome, too.

There's a Facebook event for this Sketch Fest, if you are interested in such things: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=189221057827889

EMG-Zine needs work to the theme of 'Dragonflies' for January! http://emg-zine.com/guidelines.php

(EMG-Zine also needs more funds before the end of the year if you want to see issues extend past June of 2012! - Remember that you can donate your credits to this project (spend-only credits, too)!)

Bread now. And I've got to fix that water pump gurgle before it drives me nuts...

  • Various morning thoughts and daily blogging...

    The Safeway pickup was painless. They were out of a few things (flour—not shocking, cherry pie filling, soap, English muffins, lime juice, chocolate…

    It doesn't quite capture the colors we have, but it dried considerably darker than we'd hoped. We have decided to paint a few areas over…
