Fun Sized

23 Dec

The chickens aren’t laying many eggs this time of year.

Today they surprised me with four eggs!

Of course a couple of them are fun-sized (which starts with F).

I am thinking of starting my own link-up.  I miss my Alphabe-Thursday.  There’s a couple of other great linky parties that I miss too, so I thought I’d do a combination.  I want to do it on a day that won’t interfere with other linky parties I participate in (although it would be easy to join other parties too).  Come back Friday to see what I’m thinking.  Of course, this week is Christmas and the following is New Year’s.  I’m thinking New Year’s Day will be my first link up. Hopefully it doesn’t flop (which also starts with F).

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

28 Nov

This week’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday items are: me, my grocery list, baking, kindness, and change of seasons.

We certainly are in the midst of a change of seasons.  We have had rain, mud, snow, sun, and freezing rain in the last few days, and it’s all in the forecast for the next couple of days too.

I brought my last pumpkin in before it froze, and it’s what I’m baking today.  It will be used for Christmas pies and whatever other goodies I can come up with.

Out of kindness, I took the pumpkin insides out to the chickens.

They love it!  I like giving them treats to make them happy, and it’s good for them too.  Raw pumpkin seeds are a natural wormer.

I had several requests for my grocery list.

Despite setting a pretty fancy table, some critters think I need to get some suet too.

From the looks of the goldfinch image, it looks like I need to add window cleaner to my grocery list too.

Getting ready for the Christmas markets is keeping me busy.  I’m going from an entire building at the pumpkin patch to a small table or two at the craft sales.

This might take some work to get half of the stuff there that I want.  I’ve also updated my on-line market to include my new soaps and the wax melts.

I am also sharing this with Bird d’Pot, Macro Monday, and I Heart Macro.

My little hens are laying!

They’re laying little eggs, but they will be larger by next spring.  Then I’ll have so many eggs I won’t know what to do with them all.
