Where the heck did my day go?

So, this morning Erin and I left the house at 9 a.m. to do a few errands. Just the bank and the post office. And the office supply store. Oh, and the printer to check the proof of the new MVFF 2009 calendar. And by then we were starving, so we stopped to eat. Then I needed to find something to wear for the book cover photo shoot that was scheduled for this evening, so we quickly went into two clothes stores.

By the time we got home I just had time to shower and change and head to the farm to meet Patrick and the photographer, Randi Baird. We spent two hours with the animals for the cover, then changed our clothes for the author photo. [Erin took these pictures of the shoot for you.]

[Patrick would like you to know that that hay bale was very, very heavy.]

While we were at the farm, we decided to go ahead and move the fence to save time in the morning. By the time we got home it was after 8 p.m.!

I didn't get ANY writing done today, but the photo shoot was important for the book. And- I can't believe I'm mentioning this so casually way down in this post- we shipped the first of the Spring 2008 shares today.  Erin is downstairs in her office getting more boxes packed so we can get the next batch out tomorrow. We should have them on all their way to you by the end of the week.

Looks like the photo shoot created beautiful shots. I can't wait to learn more about your book. Karen

I have always believed that the only happy people are those that are busy. You must be delirious. I am jealous.

Hi, Susan, I am Debbie's sister and Joan's daughter. Mom and I are sitting here looking at your photos. At first I thought Patrick was holding a sheep on his shoulder! Makes the hay seem not so heavy now, doesn't it? Have a happy day!

Oh, that silly sister of mine... why would Patrick be balancing a sheep on his shoulder??

There's only one problem with those photos... they totally make me want to keep a flock in my apartment in SF. Will you help me convince my landlady?

Seriously, your animals look very healthy, obviously well cared for and very beautiful.
