In other fabulous news, the test packages I sent to Amazon for fulfillment have sold 8/12 coloring books in just over 2 weeks. Worth doing, and I shall ship some larger boxes that will save me a little on per-item postage next time.
In other, OTHER fabulous news, I got a spot at the UWA bazaar the first week of November. I will be sharing a downstairs spot with laylalawlor both Saturday and Sunday. We have spot #43, on the middle aisle. (I will not be able to offer coloring books I am not actually IN, but if you are a local interested in purchasing any not-me titles, I can have them available for pickup.)
Yesterday was the Tuesday with No Nap, so I got very little done. Today, I have childcare, and have already (in one hour) done more than I accomplished all of yesterday.
You may recall that my delphiniums last year were a total bust. Not so, this year:
I dispatched two of the voles that were eating my lettuce (and decimated my strawberries and lilies over the winter), but three times in a row now, the live trap was triggered and cleaned out, and left in pieces by the garden. I need a better trap. This was a tiny, plastic mousetrap I wasn't sure was up to voles anyway. I'm resisting the kill-traps because the snap traps caught a bird last year, and I don't like the use of poison. Also, I'd like to keep danger to dog noses and child fingers to a minimum.
Tomorrow is $1 ice cream at the Wood Center. I'll be paying twice that because of parking, but it will still be worth it. Cross fingers for sunny skies!
