Fridaily with Flicking (and Imposter's Syndrome)

I'm nervous about the Kickstarter and there's a grant that I'm quite eligible for that closes Monday that I want to apply for but haven't done anything about (because I am a giant coward and feel unworthy), so instead of working on any of that, I completely rearranged Guppy's room ("You're moving the BED!"*) and took her out to pick cranberries in the cold.

She was even helpful!



Those are all her own cranberries that you see there, and she was very meticulous about digging into my (big) bucket and picking out the icky ones and leaves. We got nearly a pound and a half in probably 45 minutes. And it was lovely to be outside a little.

I want to try making fruit leather out of it. Can you put nuts in fruit leather? I may have to try. They would probably have to be chopped up REALLY fine to work.

Okay, Guppy is NOT interested in napping, but I'm going to suck it up and try to go get something done anyway...



*Having a 2 year old is like having your own personal sports announcer following you around. "You're washing the dishes! The kitty is sleeping! Your pants are blue! You're sitting in Papa's chair! You're driving the car!" All said with EXTREME interest, like I'm making the game-saving play at THAT VERY MOMENT.
