Last night was better. It started out bad but ends with a 4 hour stretch of sleep that was pretty awesome.

Plus Q spontaneously gave me smooches as bedtime last night. And I was able to use reason to get her to take some cough syrup and then she didn't cough all night. Plus smooches!

Plus I drew a bunch of chalk shapes on the ground outside and she immediately made up a game jumping from one to another.

I'm a bit up against it with the jewelry orders. One I will finish. The other one I have like 3 more pieces to make but I'm not gonna get a chance to do it, I can tell. And the 2 older orders, I have a couple different things to do for then too that won't get done in time. Grrr.

Made the sangria marmalade. Am very pleased with it. My mother declared it "interesting", but she didn't even know what sangria was until we served it to her a couple of months ago. Had some on toast this morning. Not sure that's the best application for it (with cheese it would be awesome!), but it was good. Deep, dark flavors. I don't know if you can be a little bit synaesthesic, but these flavors are like bursts of light and color to me. I am blinded by them when I take a spoonful. I am not being metaphoric. Not entirely literal, but attentionally blinded at least. And then with the colors.
