In the meantime, I've got to figure out what to do with all these eggs.
Last night I made a spinach, bacon and potato frittata and it was enjoyed by everyone but G (he's seven, okay almost eight and still pretty picky). Tomorrow will be a cookie baking day, I'm quite sure I'll use up several for that.
I requested a few egg cookbooks from my library. Hopefully I will be inspired!

Sorry for the glare. This egg was our first "bigger" egg and when I cracked it open there were two little yolks in there. No Danni, I didn't weigh it. Mainly because I don't have a scale here at home to do so. I'm waiting until after Christmas, just in case someone got the hint that I wanted a scale. ;0)

Suzanne's blog: At Home with the Farmer's Wife posted about The Shack. Lots of people around me have been mentioning this book so I thought why not and lo and behold she picked my name. Woot! Woot! I'm totally surprised and excited.
Soooo, stay tuned. I'll let you know when I get it and what I think when I read it then I'll have a post offering it to one of you!

These are the boots I wear the most right now. When it's really moist.
In the sun.
My trusty closed toe crocs, this is what I use in the dryer times.
These are my fav. I lurve orange! I only use these in the summer for a quick trip out to the coop.
*and yes those are comfy house pants. ;0)

I've learned a couple of things so far about myself: 1. I have a really hard time waking from anesthesia, when I had my appy 6 years ago, I don't remember having such a difficult time, but I wasn't under as long either. 2. Me and narcotics don't mix, I knew I didn't like codeine and always refuse it when offered by the Dr. but now I know vicodin isn't good either, and morphine makes me want to scratch my face off. So, they gave me ultram which I guess is just a step up from Tylenol but sure did the trick for me. No crazy completely relaxed body and hyperactive brain, no crazy hallucinations, no crazy psychotic dreams. Just pain relief and sleep.
I've also learned how much I show affection towards my boys and how difficult it is to do that right now. I guess I hug them A LOT! Because I can't do that very easily right now and they keep trying. LOL K, I'm off to rest, maybe knit a little and catch up on t.v. Cause I can't do much else.

Time to put the trees up. Yes, I said trees, plural. Just two this year. I have three. ;0)
We don't do real trees here, two reasons: 1. The first year we were married we went out to get a tree, it was cold but a pretty winter afternoon, with in the hour it took to pick out a tree, an ice storm hit. It wasn't pretty and it took nearly a week to get that tree defrosted! 2. We have extended family members that have pine allergies.
Anywho, this is our annual tradition, Christmas music on (no Christmas shows, too distracting) and Santa hats. And it begins:
This is what we call "fluffing" the branches.
This is the tree master, he reigns supreme on putting the tree together.
G says there is no reason to stand up to fluff the branch, he can do it perfectly well in the reclined position.
The finished product. We go for the wherever they want to put the ornaments look. Oh, see that tree skirt, I made that the first year we were married, it's reversible. This side looks quilted the other side is a snow scene.
