A cozy winter day


A chicken laying one of the first eggs of the year, right on our doorstep – go figure!


A tray of flourless oatmeal, coconut and sesame cookies – one of my kids’ favorite snacks.


A pot of soup cooking on the stove.


A crochet sweater in the making – my first attempt at the dragonfly stitch.

Hope you are all having a wonderful day!

  1. When we had chickens at my home of origin when I was a teen, I remember their eggs being found in every so many locations…being my dad quit penning them up as weasels and the like were getting them…he felt they would be better off roosting in trees etc…but finding eggs…ha, not an easy job!! At least yours is making that easy it seems!! Those cookies sound very yummy!!

    1. I have found in the past that the solution to chickens laying eggs in odd places would be to lock them up for a time until they get used to the nesting boxes. Might have to do that if they switch to laying in odd spots!


    1. It’s the kind of soup called “whatever you have on hand 😁” Mainly all kinds of veggies and the bony parts of chicken.

      I love working with this yarn! Just finished the sweater and started another one for another of my girls.


    1. Just toss together two cups of oats, half a cup of shredded coconut, a handful of sesame seeds, a sprinkling of cinnamon, your sweetener of choice, a handful of raisins (optional), 1/4 cup oil, and a couple of eggs. Mix and form cookies on baking tray. Bake until edges are golden. Enjoy ♥
