While I love photos where the
grandeur of the color takes your
breath away, there is also something
to be said for those little moments.
The spots of color and details that
surround us every day.
Yesterday I found myself with camera
in one hand, a warm chicken egg in the
other wandering our backyard and just
a little beyond into my mother-in-law's
space...just to see what I could see.
Curious about the egg?
Our youngest chickens have just
begun laying. We are gathering
them as quickly as we can so they
don't get broody on us.
I got there just after an egg was
carefully left for us and it served
as a wonderful hand warmer...sorry!
I hear someone saying "Ewww!"
Don't knock it until you try it!
I say that with a smile!
It is a bit wierd...I was just too
into what I was doing to stop and
take the egg inside.
Oliver was so very happy
that I was outside with him.
The poor cat is so conflicted.
He loves to be outside but he also
loves attention. So when we are outside
he is thrilled that he can have it all!
Waiting for an impromptu bonfire...
All ready for a fire in Georgia's fireplace.
Love those crackling wood fires.
They smell so good!
Love these evergreens that border the
So wispy and beautiful.
Hopefully one of these days the
rains will stop long enough for
us to dispose of the leaves...
but for now, I think they smell
so good and look so pretty.
Sharing these photos is so much
fun but I have just been "paged"
back to the real world.
Time to attend to a few things.
Making bread, brownies and more
for the weekend and a birthday
My brother is turning FORTY!!!!
We are celebrating tomorrow.
Have a super day!
