So domestic...

Last week, Keith was in class, and I was not. I spent a lot of time at home doing domestic things, such as cooking, organizing, and working on some art projects. As a result, I finished the top of Keith's graduation quilt (made partially from his old jeans, and was supposed to be done in December but wasn't), made about 6 liters of spaghetti sauce with Julie's wonderful recipe, knit several inches on a baby sweater for Janelle's baby, practiced my cello, and decorated a bunch of picture frames with the help of the children upstairs. Oh, I also found some people to play viola da gamba consort music with! Very fun.

Mmmm... a pot of beautiful spaghetti sauce...


Dayna, one of my family's neighbors, gave me some advice on choosing dishes when we were doing our bridal registry last spring. She suggested that I visualize our dishes with spaghetti on them. I think our dishes pass the spaghetti test...


Now that Keith is done with his class (all the classes during the summer are 1 or 2 weeks), he is enjoying the lovely weather (ha ha) and digging the hole which will contain our patio/seasonal dining room. He's looking forward to removing the retaining wall with a sledge hammer. We are very excited!

It's hard to believe that you're going to become "Auntie Celia" to our baby Chung, correct?! Hehe... Thank you auntie Celia (in advance) for the lovely sweater that you're working on. Just a tiny reminder, baby will be born during the summer, by the time she needs a sweater, she probably will be 4 months old or so.
Baby Chung:" Auntie Celia and Uncle Keith, please come visit me, mommy and daddy in Colorado soon!I've heard so much about you, couldn't wait to meet you in person!"
Lots of hugs from us three to you two!

Hey Celia,

Industrious as ever I see! Nice grand piano... tight squeeze but I'm sure you are enjoying it immensely! I just ordered some of your wedding photos from shutterfly, that was a great day! Hope you are doing well and maybe the "aunties" can visit the Chung's together sometime, eh?

Love, ceph
