Since we will be on an island in Korea (that will obviously not be celebrating the 4th of July)
I am celebrating early by wishing you all a great celebration day!
I hope you have fun plans with family and friends.
I really miss the U.S.A. and with the rising cost of flying (due to fuel prices) I don't know when we will be able to get back there again. I hope next year.
There might be a way we can fly free by hitching a ride on a military plane that is already going there.
We are looking into it.
I heard you have to wear ear plugs on those flights. Hmmmm.
Can you believe that I FINALLY finished Piney's Life Book?????
Yes. After all of this time. I started it in Fall 2006 and haven't had time to really devote to the task until now.
Yesterday I had some friends over (our knitting group) and my friend looked at it and it made her cry- so I know it turned out like I wanted for Piney.
It starts from just before our adoption, including all of our trips to Russia, her baby shower and the first six months home.
It was fun to relive the memories.
The first months home with a newly adopted child is VERY exciting, but also VERY challenging- so now that things are much easier- those first months have glossed over into only fond memories.
It is funny how our memories do that- as we remember the good old days and forget all the hard parts.
I've also been experimenting with different recipes this past week. Some have turned out well, others not so much. I will share my made up recipes with you in my next post. The ones that worked well of course!
Happy Independence Day again!
