Mondaily (More rambly than usual...)

A truly beautiful weekend. Thursday night it rained and rained and I spent a stressy Friday worried about our driveway, which was ankle-deep mud. We got hydro-seeded early that evening, despite the mess, which was a big load off my mind, and it started to clear up and dry out. My sister PMed me an offer to babysit, and I checked the Blue Loon schedule to find that Ironman 3, which I'd been dying to see, was playing at 5:30 on Saturday. So, instead of Doing Stuff, as had previously been planned, we took the day off, ate delicious food, went out to dinner and a movie, and had a mellow, wonderful day. I didn't do any sketching, but that's okay, because it felt like work and it was nice to be able to say 'I don't have to!' I did get sales approved and generally keep up with administrative things, but as a whole, it went Very Smoothly and required very little of me, which was a HUGE relief after the last several months.

We have upgraded our shower with an 8" swing arm and OH, it is awful. And by awful, I mean that I do not ever want to get out of the shower again because it is evil and perfect. Today, there has been unplanned laundry; Guppy wet through her diaper - first time in a LONG time, so the Very Important Blanket is in the dryer now. She was up quite a lot earlier than usual. She got up just as our alarm was going off, and I couldn't reach her snooze button from bed! She went down for an early nap without the Very Important Blanket, for which I am very grateful and I hoping to get Sketch Fest payments and art cards out. Have I mentioned how lucky I am with this baby? She tells me when she's tired, goes right down for her naps and for bed with remarkably little fuss, doesn't need a security blanket, and is as good-natured as you could ask for.

Also, she's pretty funny:

Oh, I have to make bread today, too. *notes*

On that rambly note, I'm off to do stuff.

Oh hilarious baby! *beams*

What did you think of IM3? (I really enjoyed it.)

Glad to hear that sketchfest went well from your perspective!

Dear Guppy,

Someone has been leading you terribly astray. While licking off the beaters is a fine plan, that is not the tasty end of the beater.

did the sweater/hat I made her ever fit?

Yes! Did I not send you photos? I'm quite sure I took some (but then, I take So. Many. Photos...) I shall have to get her to model them again, because So. Cute. The hat won't stay on longer than a few seconds before she take it off and throws it, but that's typical for all hats not actively tied on.

Nope, no pictures yet, but I would LOVE to see them... :)
