Emma and I have had a pretty great couple of days. This morning we had a fun playdate and then came home for more fun activities. We dyed yarn, which she (and I) thought was pretty great. We're definitely going to have to do that again. I'll post pictures tomorrow when it's dry. We also made Spanakopita, which was easy to make and SO yummy. I think Steve is jealous that he's missing out on all this good food this week. I can't remember the last time I've had the urge to cook so much. Don't worry, though, I'm sure it won't last long!

Emma has been asleep before 8:00 the last two nights (!) so I've had time to drag out the sewing machine and sew myself a couple of needle cases. My knitting needles were all just thrown in a disorganized drawer so this system is much better.

The only bad thing about the last two days is that our mail hasn't come until almost 6:00! What is UP with that? Doesn't the Post Office know I'm waiting impatiently all day long for that mail?

Those cases look cute. Sometimes I check my mail at school twice or three times in one day, just in case someone decided to put something in the box.

Those bags look efficient. You should send me some of that Spankatoniniona stuff.

Yum and pretty.

Our day actually did improve... after I fed Will lunch he bounced right back. No nap for him, but he played really happily all afternoon. I forget that he is like his Daddy, and his Grandpa, and gets what the Dutch call, Cayunga (sp??), if he doesn't eat often. That boy can eat! Send over that Spanakopita stuff!

The knitting bags are great! Definitely should post some of these recipes, the food sounds delish!
