Things in my House Thursday


A homeschooling friend of mine has three kids who raise chickens and sell their eggs. The chickens are providing beautiful nutrition and eye candy for my family. I'm amazed each week when I open the carton to see the gorgeous colors and shapes. What a creative God we serve!
By the way, the pencil marks on the egg in the lower right hand corner is the date the egg was laid; Laura's kids mark each one.

I love eggs. I love the shape, the colors and the feel of eggs. The minute I saw your picture, I smiled. Eye candy is the perfect phrase. :o)

I've never seen such (naturally) colorful eggs!

Just white or brown around here.......

That homeschooled children handle the process is just one reason why I think they are getting a superior education : )

Thanks for joining TIMHT! And congrats - you were number 1 today!! : )

They're so pretty! When I see eggs like that, it immediately takes me back to my childhood when my grandma would let me gather the eggs when I visited. I was never so thrilled as when we finally got our own chickens and I got to do that every day!

You're right, that gingham checked cloth does look a lot like the one under my Apple Pandowdy dish. Nothing says homey like red checked gingham. ;-)

How neat! Do they all taste the same? :D

I have always liked the idea of having chickens and eggs of my own. But then I remember that I am totally freaked out by birds and that chickens can be really stinky. So I wish I just had some friends that had chickens and eggs.
Actually, I would settle for some ChickFilA Chicken and eggs right now...

I found your blog on Joyfully Living's blogroll and am excited to connect with other Christian women.
