The mudroom is getting so close to being done, I can hardly stand it. The light fixture is up and the trim is almost finished. Trouble is, the big saw is outside and it rained like crazy yesterday, so no more work got done.
Frodo the Wonder Yorkie was in desperate need of a haircut. He could hardly wait to get in his carrier for the trip to the groomer.
Ah, much better now.
Finally, the chickens are starting to lay again. They seem to have taken the past six weeks off, laying only one or two eggs a day. Well, this week they have picked up the pace. Yesterday, there were seven eggs!
Here are the day's eggs, washed and ready to be put into a carton. Many people who have a home flock do not wash eggs until they are ready to eat them. A freshly laid egg has on it's surface something called bloom, which forms a sort of protective coating and helps keep the egg fresh longer. However, when we share eggs with others, they are not usually so thrilled with the, um, "residue" which is often on them. So, we give the eggs a quick rinse.
How's your weekend so far?
