The first tomato is almost ripe! And by July 4th this time, not Halloween, like last year. The heirloom varieties we planted last year were tasty, but I am just not that patient. I also have a row of carrots sprouting. Has anyone grown them before? When are they usually ready for harvesting? (I live in southeastern Pennsylvania).
In other news, the Mosaic manuscript is getting there, too, though since it has not been professionally edited yet, I would put it in the green tomato stage. I had my 9 individual chapters. At the end of last week, I put them into one “full script” file, and I have been working in that. It helps to be able to move back and forth and try to maintain coherence between chapters. I’ve been spending a lot of time on it, but sometimes giving something a lot of mental space helps you see what it still needs. The whole childcare discussion came out of that realization. I also saw that I claimed there was no typical night, but didn’t provide any evidence to back that up. So I went back to my numbers, and looked at two adjacent day sleep totals. Some 22 percent of logs show a 90 minute gap or more between Tuesday and Wednesday on sleep. That’s what I mean by no typical night!
In other, other news: NicoleandMaggie has a post on taking a break from mommy blogs. Or at least the anxiety producing ones.
