If this knitting-related madness wasn't enough, I have to teach a recycling class to 30 preschoolers tomorrow morning, something for which I am completely unprepared. What am I doing to get ready? Downing a bottle of wine and listening to the Mighty Mighty Bosstones at much too high of a volume.
I have a bunch of garden pictures to blog, but they're stuck inside my camera. We worked almost all weekend on the front yard, and it's looking pretty darn good. The biggest issue is space - I've still got sage, basil, cucumbers and a couple of errant zucchini plants to fit in. We gave the neighbors some sugar pumpkin starts that had sprouted in our asparagus patch from the pumpkin I tossed off the front porch last fall. Aren't volunteer veggies the best?
In the all-consuming world that is book prep, I managed to spent this evening putting together the book website (go there and click on the cover thumbnail, and you can see some of the gorgeous pattern pics that will be in the book). I think it turned out okay - the best thing is that I did a final round of edits on the book today, and it's looking DARN good, if I do say so myself. Every bit of feedback that I've gotten has been over-the-top positive, so I'm slowly admitting to myself that it might actually be a winner. Yay!
Now I've got to stop typing because I know that too much wine and too-loose fingers are not the best combo. Time to go to bed and mentally prep for those 30 preschoolers, expecting to learn something about recycling... I'm going to take a handful of stuff from the worm bin and dazzle them with the squirmy wormies. Preschoolers are pretty easily amused, right? Wish me luck!
