A few weeks ago I posted that my egg share had in fact been canceled. Sigh. This still sads me. I love my fresh eggs. Once you have them it is hard to go back to those watery, yellowy, store bought eggs. I am still in search of a new source for fresh eggs that I will be able to get on a regular basis.
However, there was a big smile on my face when I saw Mim this week and she handed me this.
And in it were these. 3 dozen of these! 3! 3 dozen I say! I was totally excited to hear that news and to see all 36 of them peeking up at me.
I had to take one out and hold it. Everybody does this, right? Holds their eggs and tells them how pretty they are and how much they love them. Cmon. I know Im not the only one.
Even tho they werent my eggs from the beginning. I mean, they didnt come from my chickens. I dont have any chickens....yet. I still could not resist weighing each and every one of those amazing eggs.
Among those 36 eggs, I discovered that the the majority were coming in at 1 5/8 ounces. (Or 1.625 ounces for those that prefer the decimal system.) There were a few that were 1 1/4 ounces and a few that were 1 3/4 ounces. Heres the littlest and the biggest.
But thats not all. Since we were finally able to see each other it was the perfect opportunity to exchange gifts from the holiday season. It delighted me to open my gift bag to see some chai tea(chocolate, no less), some yummy tea bags, and a very pretty bookmark. I love to read, and there are times when I actually have a few books going at once...so this is a perfect thing for me.
And then there was this.
Yep, you guessed it. A cutting board. A bamboo cutting board to be exact. I cant wait to try it out.
Okay, well, I kinda tried it out.
Thanks for the eggs, Mim. And the great gifts! As you can see, I love them all!
