May's Menu Planner

This is a really long month and it is the last month off for me for another 6 months. for those that do not know I work 6 months or so out of the year. We farm and I do my "part" from June through November or early December. For those 6 months, I work 80-100 hours each week out of the home and it is very difficult. That is what we do and I love the farm life and raising my children in this life!

Sounds delicious, as usual Marva.

Sorry I haven't been commenting over the past few days, I am glad all is well from the tests that you had done. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Don't forget to let me know about the soap, and then I can get it sent off to you! x

Wow, you're so organized. I don't even know what I'm going to make today, and dinner time is only a few hours away.
