Yesterday was another smashingly busy day in which I crossed many things off (many boring things, like take van to the shop, and fold laundry). Because we went in very early to drop the van off, we were in town before the library or usual kid things opened, and it was too wet to go to the park. So, instead, Guppy asked sweetly if we could go to Creamer's Field, and I thought that sounded like a great idea.

The mosquitos were fierce, and the boardwalk in places is quite tippy and slick, but we clung to each others hands and navigated the boreal loop with much laughter and excited observation. We saw ducks, and I introduced her to algae, and we climbed up to the observation tower (she was more interested in the stairs than the view) and we counted bridges and it was great fun. We had just restocked the hospital with coloring books, so I brought a copy of the Wildflowers of Alaska coloring book into the Creamer's giftshop to see if they'd be interested in carrying it. The woman at the desk was very enthusiastic, so I left a copy with my contact information. Fingers crossed!

Have some photos:

The rest of the day involved lots of busy work, cleaning, more Portrait Adoption certificate counting (I FOUND THE MISSING ONE! In the Ps instead of in the Cs where it belonged. There was no P anywhere in the name, it was totally a clerical error.) and lots of cooking and processing of the farm share. Mmmm... farm share.

(Also, I totally fooled both husband and Guppy into eating a beet, which they both hate, and it was the funniest thing I've seen in weeks. I laughed myself to tears.)

Today so far has involved cleaning - I had two drawers that were utterly uselessly stuffed with things, half of which I just tossed. And poking for more Alaskan coloring books to print, and getting current printing quotes because I'm getting low on two of my best sellers. And more laundry, because it Never Ends. Hopefully, naptime will involve some writing, but I should also finish counting PA certificates. There were enough little dependencies (and some major head-scratching with name changes) that it was a good thing I was doing it.

I should comment sensibly but all I can do is chant GUPPY AMONG THE BIRCHES and delight in these!

Guppy's getting big!

I am terribly curious about fooling people into eating beets. They're hard to disguise, with that color.

It was a yellow beet, which had been stored (cooked) with some red ones, so it had a very peach-like gradient. Guppy pointed to it and said 'what's that?' and before I could answer, Jake told her, "It's peaches, you love peaches!" and volunteered to eat one off her plate.

Error corrected after one bite each, I imagine. Silly people, beets are yummy!
