We'll be havin' chicken and dumplins when she comes...
I'm so excited! My sweet friend is coming for a week long visit with her daughter today. She has been making the same 5 and a half hour trip every January and July for 4 years now.
These are some of the things I'm looking forward to that we always do when she's here:
having chicken and dumplins
laughing a *lot*
reading our Bibles together
working in the kitchen together
She will also be bringing her new spinning wheel. I can't wait to see her spin and maybe get a turn trying it.
My family loves to have company. We especially love the company that keeps coming back. I know the ones that come back like us more than they mind the dust we overlooked, or the constant stream of clothes that need folding on the couch, or the toys that keep finding their way to the middle of the floor. I am so glad that our friends and family can overlook our imperfections and focus on enjoying our time together. Which reminds me of a little trivet I remember hanging on my mother's kitchen wall when I was just a little girl. It was black and had this poem on it:
Our house doesn't always
Look this way,
Sometimes it's even worse!
I wish I had that trivet.
