Twisty tree

I've missed the moonlight...

I've missed the moonlight.

I haven't missed the endless, dreary nights, but I have missed the clarity and starkness and beauty of moonlight on snow.

I dragged myself out of Jake's arms at the second alarm this morning. I pulled on my robe (on the last legs of its terrycloth and flannel life) and staggered through the tapestry into the room that serves as kitchen, living room and study, where I found a square of light on the floor.

I looked at it for a long moment, trying to figure out what it was, lying on the floor, and hoping I didn't trip over it, before I realized it was moonlight through the window. I rubbed my eyes and went to the window. There is just a little snow leftover from the weekend; the barest, fluffy layer left where no one has walked. Just enough to turn the driveway blue and light up the forest.

It was nice to wake up to. And driving in, there was a brilliant sunrise across the entire horizon, glorious colors, stunning mountainscape.

It's nice to live in a place of such beauty.

Progress is Good.


More updates! Including a spur-of-the-moment Halloween special on small stickers and magnets. Wish I'd thought of it at the beginning of the month, but, eh, there's still 10 days (or so) for orders arriving before the 31st. And short deadlines can be good ordering incentive.

I adore how easy it is to update artist-pages. All I have to do is make sure they're listed in configuration, and add an entry. Even a bogus entry! It doesn't seem to catch updating entries, only updates 'em if there's a new entry added. And it doesn't have to be an entry for that artist. So easy! *gush*

Off to send update note to EMG list.

It's so nice to make visible progress for once, not all the coding gobbly-gook that takes for freaking ever and doesn't look like anything's actually happening...
