Sometimes, for me, writing a post is hard to come by. My rule is to be true to my animals. I don’t make these stories up. They are told to me by my four-legged (and in the case of chickens, two-legged) friends. Unfortunately, some days are more interesting than others.
Today, it snowed all day. There was lots of shoveling and checking on the animals. Photos were taken. But nothing special happened. Everyone, including me, just wanted to be left alone. Mondays are household chore days. I hate Mondays.
Come on animals! Don’t you have a good story? Finally, I went out later in the afternoon, checked the nesting boxes and found seven beautiful eggs. (One was broken, but that wasn’t particularly interesting.) Many beautiful eggs laid as the snow flew! Could that be a story?
I brought in those eggs and carefully created a photo vignette. Yes! There IS a story! Beautiful eggs, laid by my wonderful hens with a total disregard for the snow! We had just moved some furniture around, and these vintage trays I found at the thrift store were on top of a low side table. Blogger lady photo of pretty chicken eggs on vintage trays while the snow flies outside. Sweet!
Could it be better than this? Oh, yeah, it gets better.
After I took the photos, I went back to my Monday full of laundry and cleaning and bill paying and tax preparation. Ugh. Soon Very Excellent Husband Don came home and cocktails were made. Life was getting better. Until I looked over at the table. The low side table. Where I left the eggs.
What’s wrong with this picture?
Now, I know we all get a little stir crazy when it snows. And to her credit, I DO give her all the cracked eggs. But we really needed to sit down and have a little talk.
Just sayin’, these photos were taken in the exact order as seen here. I could not make this stuff up if I tried.
