We had a really nice weekend. But, wow, they always go by so so quickly. I am still fighting this nasty cold (can’t wait for a post that doesn’t include that!) and unfortunately I think Lya is fighting it now, too.
I managed to get all of my original strips sewn together–well, almost. I started this quilt by sewing several 1.5″ strips together. Now I’ll cut them apart and start assembling the quilt top. This is a double-bed sized quilt, so this is going to be very tedious. I think I’m going to like it though and will post some more pictures as I am working on it.
Saturday night I made Goi Ga (cabbage & chicken salad) for dinner. Very very tasty and easy to make. On Sunday, I through some of the salad into a springroll w/ rice noodles and fried tofu. Not the best that I’ve made, but quite good all the same. Oh, how I wish we had a Vietnamese restaurant on the mountain. However, this weekend we’re headed to Pittsburgh to visit with friends–introducing many to Lya for the first time–and definitely eating at the Vietnamese restaurants a few times.
How does she know how to hold a pencil? We are constantly amazed by our baby girl. It is so much fun to watch a little one change and grow.
Today marks a pretty big transition for our family. Nick begins classes for his graduate degree today. He’s planning to go full time, have an assistantship and work a few hours, as well. Our world just got busier. I am so excited for him though. This is something he’s wanted to do for a while and it is finally happening.
