Lunch at the Office

Working in a family business can have it’s struggles, that is for sure.  But it also comes with many blessings.  One of those blessings for us is that Granny and Wimmy come once a week (most weeks) and cook lunch for us. 

Fortunately for us, it was today.  We had a spread of venison cubed steak, fresh butter beans, fresh corn, fresh okra, tomatoes and cucumbers, rice and gravy, corn bread, and banana pudding.  Needless to say, we all need a nap!

But one of the other blessings it brings, is time spent as a family.  This is what we got to do today…

SaraGrace got to skip school today and come help cook.  Her job was to flour the cubed steak.  I’m not sure which got the flour-the steak or her.

Then she convinced Granny to borrow her earrings.  She just had to try them on.

But the highlight was SaraGrace convincing Papa to try on the earrings.  I think they look marvelous with his hair:)

This is just a glimpse of the fun times we get to experience together.  Some days are more fun than others, but today was one of those days!
