We've been working on 'behaving' with Guppy, and prompting her not to just say "I need (watermelon, favorite toy, etc...)" She is getting good at saying, with perfect diction, "May. I. Please. Have. (Watermelon, etc....)"

It is particularly amusing when she mixes it up: "May. I. Please. Have. Feed the cat!" Or, my favorite: "May. I. Please. Have. Gimmee BACK!"

(She's upstairs right now, 'napping,' and knocking on her crib, saying loudly, "KNOCK KNOCK!")

I'm continuing to slog away at the wood. I met my first goal, which was to get the original pile down to a size that could be covered with one tarp. I think I may finish the whole thing this weekend. Maybe.

I'm not sure this photo does it justice. There's a Guppy for scale in the foreground, but the pile in the back doesn't look as impressive as my muscles say it ought to.

You'll also note that the trees are mostly bare, now. It looks less like fall and more and more and more like winter. My strawberries are VERY CONFUSED, and have put out dozens of new flowers and little hard green berries that have no hope of ripening.

I'd be out stacking more wood now, but my back is asking for a break and I'm trying to be responsive to its whims. Instead? Coloring book work! Back to it!

May. I. Please. Have. Feed the cat!

Does she like feeding Velcro, or is that even more muddled than it seems at first glance? (I could see giving the cat treats being something she'd enjoy doing.)

Speaking as a fellow Alaskan, that pile in the back looks INCREDIBLY FUCKING IMPRESSIVE.

Young Indiana still hasn't quite got the hang of asking for things in a generally expected manner: "May you give me a drink of water please?" :)

I grew up on a dairy farm in upper Minnesota, and we heated/cooked on a wood stove, so I know how much wood those piles represent and how much work it took. I'm impressed!
