We will ignore the first week. I was dealing with a bad case of jet lag with mixed up days and nights. My ninety-year-old mother needed some love and attention after being very ill. She is better now, but I visited with her daily for the first week I was home. The first week was spent recuperating. I cooked some soup to serve our friends Arthur and Karl, and I ate too much of it...and too many organic, gluten- free crackers to go with it. I enjoyed lounging on my own bed and catching up on HGTV.

Sunday was my first day to attend church in five months. I took food for our potluck luncheon. I made hummus from The Farm Recipe Book, tabouli, sliced cucumbers, and sliced watermelon. When we got to church there were big hugs for everyone. Jessica and Megan made a Welcome Home sign and put it up in the kitchen.
I have the barbershop bug. After church, Travis and I went to see the Vocal Majority from Richardson, Texas. It made me miss Sweet Adelines. Do I have time to sing with a Sweet Adelines chorus?
Walking around the neighborhood was the other activity to get the blood and lymph moving. It was cold earlier in the week, so I wore my cap I knitted in Australia.
