Since Spring isn’t making it’s appearance in my neck of the woods I decided to force it a little with some store bought Spring Flowers, you know the kind you find in the grocery store. I was quite surprised by the variety they had on hand and for $13 I felt it was worth bringing a little cheer to my day.
I was able to make 4 bouquets with them and use them in several areas of my home (upcoming posts). I’m not sure how long they will last but for now it is the only sign of Spring that I am seeing and I am enjoying the bright colors it brings to my decor.
With our winter being so harsh it’s made the chickens stop laying. I normally get all my eggs from my bestie or my sons girlfriend, I got a little panic stricken when I was down to one egg in the basket. Luckily a local organic store just got a batch in from the Amish. I called first to find out if they had 4 dozen, had them hold them for me, and rushed right out to get them. Just another reason I need Spring to arrive here.
I don’t know why but I refuse to eat store bought eggs, but I do. They just don’t have the flavor or color of a fresh egg, if I have to I will bake with store bought but only as a last resort. If you ever have the opportunity to try some of these delicious, fresh eggs you will never go back to store bought either. I would love having chickens of my own but hubby says NO, he had a bad experience when with chickens when he was a kid. His dad decided to raise them in their basement and all he can remember is the horrible smell they gave off and he is turned off to raising chickens. I guess I can’t blame him, but I assured him I would be keeping them in the coop.
