After sitting still for an entire week, I am ready to get back into the kitchen.
My Mister would NEVER say, "...where you belong...", but I feel like I've abandoned an old friend.
The kitchen is where I belong. Even if I'm the one putting myself there. Sometimes you just know.
It feels right.
A lot of things have been happening while I've been in my chair. Here's a big happening.
My son found these...
But, before I could say, "Google recipes using turkey eggs", this happened...
Thomasina decided to sit on them! If all goes according to plan, we should have baby turkeys in a month!
While most of the country is experiencing the joys of winter, we are currently in the middle of a crazy, wet storm that is dumping water that cannot be measured in inches anymore.
I now know how Noah felt. An ark is currently in the planning stages. I will be posting a help-wanted ad later this week for laborers if this weather keeps up.
I had a post-surgery appointment last week. Good news! I was able to walk into the office on my own.
Just so the doctor could release me to do "..if it's work or fun, it's a no-no."
Ummmm...that's a release? Thank you Jesus for my kitchen.
Hey, as long as I don't break a sweat or smile, I'm good to go!
