Egg-cellent Apron Giveaway Today!

   So did anyone notice the little egg counter over there creep up and pass the 800 goal? A couple of days ago I collected "the"egg plus a few more, then yesterday Handsome and I ate them for brunch along with orange segments and some toasted and heavily buttered homemade English muffin bread. YUM. Egg #804 was as delish as all the others.

   Well, this morning I was in the barn raking hay off a large bale for breakfast for the buffalo and horses, when my steel rake hit something hard. Clink! I climbed up and reached around (foolish, perhaps, as it could have been anything. Like maybe a snake. A metal snake?) But my hand felt a nest of cold eggs!

   So here in this photo we have eggs #805-808. Of course, the rake did some damage to one of these little liquid-chickens-in-a-package, so it was promptly donated back to the hens who have already devoured the extra protein.

We love our chickens!

   Okay! So it's time for that custom apron set giveaway! Please feel free to comment here or on Facebook or Twitter. A few fine readers have already thrown their names into the hat on Facebook, which is awesome! The more the merrier, and enter as often as you like. I'll do a drawing this evening.

   The winner will receive a complimentary custom apron with coordinating dish towel! Aaaannnddd...  everyone else who enters will receive a 25% discount on a Green Goose Textiles purchase, just in time for the upcoming baking season!

   Have a beautiful Sunday everyone. In our corner of paradise, the sun is sparkling and the air is cool. Love is breathing deeply and keeping us on track.

"Compassion is the antitoxin of the soul:
where there is compassion 
even the most
poisonous impulses 
remain relatively harmless."

Be Compassionate. Everyone Needs It.
Including Chickens Whose Babies We Eat.


  1. Woo hoo! Nothing like fresh eggs and a custom apron to cook them in. Now I know I'm too far away to enjoy the eggs, but would love to have a custom apron (maybe with a chicken on it). Can't wait to join you in chicken keeping next year when we add a little coop to our town garden (I'm allowed to have 2 chickens)

  2. I want chickens but we rent and live in town with a small yard. In a few years we are moving and should have a lot higher yard and will buy a house. The apron is cute and I think your duck statue is cute too.

  3. Whoops! This giveaway came and went before I had a chance to enter :) Congrats to the winner!

  4. Howdy! I could have sworn I've visited your blog before but after looking at many of the articles I realized it's new
    to me. Anyhow, I'm definitely happy I came across it and I'll be book-marking it and checking back regularly!

    Have a look at my site - book of rah online


Hey thanks for commenting! I love hearing from people. It's the best. I have recently added word verification, a necessary annoyance. Have a wonderful day!
