::sicilian summer::

Continuing with the Giada recipe infatuation:
Tonight for dinner I made...

The lemon-scented mascarpone trifle was a huge success with Rob.

Luke continues to have a series of really good days.

Leila is now waving and saying "ba" anytime anyone says "bye" or when she thinks I'm going to be hanging up the phone.

She says "ap" for apple. Right now though all fruits and tomatoes are "ap"s.

The Morning Glory is going fairly well. I haven't exactly stuck to the 5:30 time but I do manage to get into the gym at least by 6:30. Believe you me though, I must have EVERYTHING laid out or this just ain't happenin. I mean I so want to stay in that bed. I really want to be disciplined to carry this out.

I've been spending so much of my evening compy time touching up photies and loading them to I'm looking forward to going through all our photos when we go visit my folks. We have 778 just for April, 2006. Is that a lot?

Remember these when we were kids?

funny how I made the same typo TWICE - "you" should be "your" a few times - so much for claiming to be a night person...hee hee!
