Sisterhood and Vegetable Soup
My sister has arrived for a couple of days. It's so good to have her here. She comes from the busy bay-area; filled with thousands of people and cars and everyone going 100 miles per hour; so when she gets here it's like a retreat...., a bed and breakfast for family only. She takes a nap, cuddles with the dogs and takes a walk outside. I love watching her unwind . Later we will have something to eat and probably do something wild and crazy, like watch a movie and go to bed early. Doesn't that sound exciting?
We will have chicken-vegetable soup for dinner and , of course, bread pudding for dessert.
It's a sisterhood weekend. The prospector is gone for a couple of days, and we can do anything we want to: stay up all night, go bar hopping (right!), drive up to Lake Tahoe, or down to Vegas. The sky's the limit. As long as we are home at 4:00 p.m. to feed the dogs and take care of the chickens and the goats. I guess we won't be gettin' in too much trouble. So...., soups on. Care to join us?
