Hello Sugar Plum! One of our friends gave us lovely plums! Nana Go Go sent me a nice email explaining how to make plum jam, so I am going to do it today!
I made plum sauce with half of them. They turn so purple!
I poured it over a moist piece of banana bread, squirted some cream on top and . . . DELICIOUS!
That same day, I drove out to Kelli's house. I wanted to see their recently acquired rescue horse, Sven (yes, Frozen, you've seen it). The horse above is a neighbor horse named Cheyenne.
The horses (they board three but didn't have one of their own) were out to pasture. First, I noticed that they painted their barn! Pretty!
I had flip flops on my feet and I'm not completely comfortable with big animals, but Kelli, carrots in hand, went out to lure Sven up to the house so I could take some photos.
By the way, they moved their playhouse when they relocated and I thought you'd like to see it again because it's the cutest little Wendy house ever!
While we waited for Sven, Miss Bug and Millie Rose JUMPED!
Our girl Kelli has fallen in love with horses. I'm sure glad it didn't happen when she was growing up. #wecouldnothaveprovidedherwithahorse
Thank you for the visit, Sven. You're very cute!
Last Thursday we had errands to run and Kelli and Millie came with us. When Plum Cake saw Granny's leopard car seat, she wanted to sit in it. I brought her inside because we weren't leaving until later but the wheels were turning in her almost two year old head. She said, "Granny's car! Go home!" She loves being home with her parents and sis. I try to make her days eventful so she doesn't get homesick. Samantha Rose is always happy to move from activity to activity.
Aw, James! Taking a snooze?
Jeff took this cool photo of his lovely wife and his son. Mmmmmm. I love my peeps.
Dad and his boy!
Last night Jeff, Christie, and James brought over a treat! A homemade pie! And ice cream! They received apples from a generous neighbor. I had pie for breakfast and it was delicious! A blue ribbon pie! I know, this is not a good example of portion control.
I am off to run three errands. Have I mentioned how thankful I am that I can buzz around during the day on roads that aren't clogged with after-work traffic? I love the rhythm of days at home SO VERY MUCH. I know, you know that already. Sorry to be such a gush gush gusher.
Thank you for popping in, good neighbor.
