Busy Week!

Woah, have I been busy! This past week just flew by, but it was a good week. We had family to visit in the first part of the week. Then, I had cleaning and projects to do along with a rest period to keep my milk supply up. Wednesday, I spent all day shopping and running errands. Thursday, I took my Dad and Bubby and BabyGirl to the local zoo. Friday, we went to the farm next door and Bubby played for 4 solid hours! In the evenings, we walked back to the farm to watch Daddy work on the bins and silos, getting them ready for the harvest season.

This morning, I opened up my fridge and heard rustling. In the back, a plastic bag was moving. Hubby and I were invited to a lobster shindig last night, but I couldn't go....had to get the kiddos to bed. So, I sent hubby and he returned with 3 live lobsters. I recognized the blessing, but really wasn't thrilled. So, before 9 am this morning, I hauled up my stock pot, put it on the burner on my grill and got the water boiling. With heebie-jeebies and a bit of remorse for the poor living things, I managed to get them out of the plastic bag and into the pot. Then, once they were cooked and cooled, I hand-cracked them and removed the meat. A quick whirr in the food processor and I made a salad and a bisque out of the meat. While at it, I made a cream of asparagus soup, too.

So, this afternoon, we ALL took naps.

Next week looks like it's going to be just as busy, if not busier.
