The plane leaves just after lunch today. I'm headed to see this sweet face—and the rest of the family, too! Baby Sister is wearing her "Daddy-O hat." That's what she calls it. If you look on the sidebar, down below the quotes and the blog roll, you'll see a few photos and in the last one Baby Sister is wearing the real Daddy-O hat—one of his work hats. Funny that she remembers it from months ago. When she got her own straw hat, she said it was her "Daddy-O hat."
I had a nice note from Big Sister today. I had mailed her some yarn and needles for a new knitting project that we'll work on while I'm there. She told me that she had some shirts that need mending, too, so maybe I could teach her to sew while I'm visiting. Sounds like we will have a full few days.
Daddy-O will stay home and keep things going here. It's a busy time of the year on the farm. It's a beautiful time of year, too. He has lots to do. And I'll be back in a jiffy. He will hardly know I'm gone. I've left an assortment of homemade ice creams for him to enjoy while I'm away.
Strawberry Ice Cream
And yes, I couldn't resist. I made strawberry ice cream last night. I've made enough for now. But goodness, it's been delicious! (Check yesterday's post for the recipe.)
