Home again

After a slightly longer than expected vacation, we're happy to be home again. Mr. Mordecai's business trip went a bit long, but Red Chief and I enjoyed some time with my family. Red Chief has been thoroughly spoiled by all his aunts, uncles, and grandparents, but he's still glad to be home. Thanks again to everyone who took care of, spoiled, and otherwise spent time with Red Chief.

Things are pretty crazy today with all the laundry, unpacking, and phone calls to catch up on. My grandmother also passed away this morning, adding a plane ticket and a trip in my near future.

If you're looking for something a bit more homemakerly today, I'm guest posting about dry beans every Thursday this month at Safely Gathered In.
