Sunday Night

Tried to prep a bunch of Newsletters, but still too tired to be terribly clever. Or even moderately clever. (Let's try: Q: Why did the zombie cross the road? A: I don't know, maybe to get some waffles or something. (See. Not clever.))

Spent a bunch of time working on Sekkrit Project, trying to design a book cover. My visual design skills are middlin' at best, and a lack of sleep does nothing to help them. I was trying idea #1, and it just wasn't working, and poking at it wasn't making it better. So I took a nap. When I got up, it was time to take books back to the library, order pizza for all of us, and play with Hz until it was time to go pick it up. We were about half way through eating when Cousins C & T arrived to take Hz for a Fun Sleepover Time. They have three boys, and the kids all play together well, so Hz was excited about it. drarwenchicken certainly missed Hz while she was with Aunt M and Grandma J, but giving her another night to rest and recuperate seemed a wise idea.

So now it's evening, and when I returned to the computer, I had a whole new design idea, which is working much better. There will be significant assembly time, and perhaps a Professional Designer would scoff at my amateurism, but it's very appropriate for the recipient in several ways, so I'm going for it. I'll post pictures when it's done.
