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.
