Good mail days

Yesterday was a good mail day for the kids. Skye found some kids books on the NPR give away shelf, and very sweetly mailed them to Zion and Liel, who were delighted to have new stories! Last night while Robert and I were cleaning up dinner they actually went and "read" all by themselves. Super cool, thank you Skye!!

Today was a good mail day for me (and Liel, heh). I ordered some yarn in a co-op about a month ago, and it arrived today! Lovely, squishy stuff. I'd be downright thrilled if it weren't for the fact that the skeins I ordered to make a vest for my dad are much more "semi" than "solid". Sigh! I knew it was a possibility (hand dyed yarn variation and all) but I'd hoped it would go more my way. I sent him pics this morning, so hopefully I won't be in suspense about whether or not it will work for him too much longer!

I also bought some yarn on Ravelry a few days ago, as I mentioned in an earlier post. It arrived today, too! So Liel and I frolicked in the yarn. I think she was a more enthusiastic squisher than I was, amazingly.

Here's what it all looks like on my couch (as I typed this Liel lunged at a bag of yarn and threw herself onto it squealing, "Yarn! Yarnyarn!").

I am a happy, happy girl.

YEY! I'm just catching up on your last few days & saw this. So glad Zion & Liel are enjoying the books... I'll keep an eye out for more of them in the near future. :)
