I am attempting to make homemade dried cranberries. So far, I am deeply skeptical and my kitchen looks like a murder scene. Guppy keeps asking if I've hurt myself, because my hands have red stains. I'll let you know how they turn out in 8 hours or so. My lemon cookie experiment yesterday was quite successful.

Guppy's latest cute is to fall over dramatically for no reason and say, "Woah! You okay? I'm okay. Guppy's* okay." And then get up (or sit up) and go on with her play.

Windy and slightly smoky today. I'm hoping for a little more rain - I fear my grass seed is all dead and I will need more, and I would like some rain to keep our early forest fires from getting too crazy. But it looks like the sky is clearing, instead, and we might have another sunny day. Hard to complain!

Trying to cross things off my list of to-dos, so I feel less loomy about things. Making a marinade for dinner. Just woke the Guppy, so I'm out of time.

*She says her name, not Guppy, but I keep that out of daily posts for whatever anonymity I can grant her.
