School yesterday was just an hour, during which the parents stood around drinking really bad coffee and catching up on life... so it didn't count. Especially since it was followed by desperately out-of-season shoe shopping for the kids.
Today, however - I was magnificent. The dye pots went on the stove before the sun came up, I took approximately four thousand yarn photos (some to go out with custom yarn invoices, others for tomorrow's site update), I worked a bit on a new look for the website (at least the homepage) and the blog, got well underway on a new hat design/Christmas gift, rinsed and hung up a million new skeins of yarn (give or take) AND walked the dog. Twice. After school, I even helped the kids start blogs in which to write their own stories (Good Parenting box - check).
Sadly, all that was only about a third of the day's To Do list... but it still felt good.
Better than Eowyn's day anyway:
Not only did she spend her first day ever out of sight of the children (oh, the plaintive crying after they left for school), but it rained buckets. All. Day. The sloping patio created a moat between her and the garden, and there were huge awful globs of water falling out of the sky and her precious princess skin got all cold and splattered when she scooted out to pee.
The sun came out just in time to meet the bus, however, and I have no pictures of that because the reunion was a little too jubilant to permit safe camera use. So all is well.
Web update tomorrow (ie. Thursday). For sure. (No exact time promises though.) Also, the copper shawl pin offer resumes at that point... details then (for those who weren't here for the first one.)
