in my pockets

To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter… to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring — these are some of the rewards of the simple life. ~John Burroughs

Look at my pretty eggs.  It’s been months since the hens have laid. Indeed, I give thanks for the one persevering Hen who kept on despite the dark cold days of winter.  A sign of spring is that the rest of them have finally started laying again, too.

I carried them home in the pockets of my jacket yesterday.  Dave brought home four more today.  SO thankful for this simple, delicious pleasure.

  1. Yay. Someday we hope to have chickens, bees, and a garden of our own. Thankful in the meantime. I think your eggs have such simple beauty.

  2. Ah yes, the rewards of a simple life! Your eggs are simply beautiful, Shanda! We’d love to have chickens, and then some … once we find a new home, that is. We’re hopeful we’ll find the perfect place soon. Just so blessed that you share your sweet home life here on line with us! 🙂
