bitty wee accomplishments  

I got the cover copy feedback sent. I got the chapter written. I did not get the kettle cleaned, but I COULD STILL DO IT.

Ted, in the meantime, has been Mr. Accomplishful and cleaned the upstairs of the house nigh unto unrecognizability, and has tidied up the back patio into a place people might want to spend time on. Now we need a barbeque and some chairs comfortable enough to sit on out there, which is always a problem: I find chairs comfy enough to sit on are rarely weatherproof. And the birds were so taken with the planter that got filled with water that I’d like to stick a bird bath back there, to see what kinds of birds I can get pictures of. Out of all our big plans, however, the one most likely to be accomplished is getting a second stake for the apple tree in order to try to convince it to grow more upright, and perhaps to get a second apple tree to see if that helps it make apples (it’s supposed to be self-germinating or whatever, but last year it didn’t). Are we exciting, or what? :)

In other news, cutting ice cream, cookies, cakes, etc out of our diet still reliably produces weight loss. How annoying is *that*?

The way we solved the weatherproof chairs problem was to get these awesome wooden ones that our local bar uses for outside--they're high, contoured right for the body and, while not padded, surprisingly easy to sit in. I don't know where we got them from (my dad got them through the bar owner), though they may have been custom made, but if you want I can get a picture for you.
