Not from our own chickens, but given to us by Edison, who helped lay sod over the giant sandpit in the backyard last week. He saw the abandoned chicken coop and run, and I told him about the laying hens that weren't, in fact, hens at all. He laughed, walked to his truck and came back with a dozen fresh eggs from his chickens. Yippeee!
I love how orange the yolks are. The last three made waffles this morning. Makes me think it's time to start working on the coop again.

spring break

A quick trip to Connecticut, where everything was wet and grey/green.
An afternoon at the Arboretum, with blue skies and happy kids.
Movies, yard work and then a marketing seminar that afforded an early-morning walk through Uptown.
But I still haven't put in the garden. Tomatoes should be in the ground by now. It's rainy and cold today, so no gardening. Maybe a trip to North Haven to at least look at plants...

finally finished

Now that the binding is complete and the Auction quilt is ready to go (Erin's instructions were fantastic), I have a long list of other things I'm looking foward to working on. But first, a rustic blueberry almond pie from amy & ann's recipe
and a new book.
Life is good.
