We had a nice visit from my older brother yesterday. I gifted him 1 dozen fresh eggs to take home and fed him some lunch.
He brought us boxes from my sister-in-law (his wife). One full of cloth napkins and placemats, one of ceramic cats and one of ceramic dogs. Oh, and some bottles of nail polish.
I absolutely loved these antique rose napkins. Snag! Those were mine. The kids and I went through them, saving some for their hope chests too. Anything left will be used in the camper. The kids went nuts with the dogs and cats, running upstairs and chattering on, and setting them in place in their room.
I'm such a ditz. I just realized I knew he was coming a few days prior, and I should have had a batch of homemade granola made for him. I guess my brain was on the fritz. I better do a check on those ingredients for the future.
It was a catch-up work day for us later in the day. We were surprised with rain early morning, so later Hubby mowed, I weeded a bit of a flower bed, and cleaned the chicken coop. I also mixed up a small batch of homemade dishwasher detergent.
House cleaning was left up to our 14 year-old, who was preparing for her birthday party today.
Sharing the link for my post on this for the recipe. It's an old photo too, but you can see it draining in the refrigerator. I get about 3 1/2 to 4 cups yield.

Most of Sunday was a bit quiet. It was a bit hot, but we got lots of outdoor work caught up. The weeds have multiplied. I hope to catch back up on reading blogs today. I've been slacking in that area.
