Play set is Here!

We came home today from work/school to find a brand new play set installed in the back yard. It took 2 men literally all day to put this together, and we were so glad we didn't attempt this ourselves. We had a squealing-giggling-happy little girl tonight! We decided to grill dinner, as it was one of the few days this week with no humidity and temps below 90. Felt great!

First Project Knitted!

My first knitting project was this lovely dish cloth, which I promptly mailed to my Mama with a bar of goatmilk soap! Am finishing up Em's pink scarf (need to go get a crochet hook to add the fringe tomorrow). She's terribly excited to model it for a photoshoot!

Scenes from the Zoo

Car Talk

On the way home today, I told Emerson that I was making homemade pizza for dinner, and invited her to help me in the kitchen. Normally, she would enthusiastically say, "YES!". Not tonight. She tried to let me down easy by first telling me that she was my friend, but that she wasn't going to help cook tonight. She explained, "I'm not a good cooker, but I am a good singer and a good counter. And tonight, Mom, I just want to play with my toys when I get home, okay?"

Right-o, kid. Right-o.
