Back to Normal

As much as we enjoyed our visitor the past week, it is now time for things to get back to our "somewhat" normal routine.  

Caleb and I took Hannah to meet her family in Texarkana today and I have to say that I am definitely not as young as I used to be.  We left at 6:15 this morning and got home about 7:00 this evening and boy am I tired and stiff from riding so long.

We had a great time getting to know Hannah and I really enjoyed having company while I was working around the house, but I really didn't do much that was productive. I wanted to have time to enjoy Hannah's visit and to be honest it was really nice to have a quiet, uneventful, lazy week.  Maybe we should have company more often :) 

BUT, since all good things must come to an end, it is now time for me to get to work.  Tomorrow I am planning on making a batch of citrus swirl goat's milk soap and hopefully work in the garden a little bit.  If I have time I am also planning on making a dress for Rachel.  I bought some really cute fabric on a recent trip to Tupelo and am looking forward to getting it sewed up into dresses for the girls.   I'm planning to post pictures when I am finished. 

Later this week the plan is to make more plum jelly.  A sweet lady that we go to church with is giving me several gallons of plum juice and I can't wait to put it to good use.    I'm  also thinking I may try making a plum cobbler. 

I never did get around to making a menu plan for this week, but since I sort of "did away" with my menu plan for last week I will probably use some of those meals for this week.  Maybe I can "get it together" enough to make a plan for next week :)

Well, I'm tired so I think I'll be calling it a night.
