We have eggs coming out of our ears at the moment, the birds are laying them faster than we can possibly eat them. The folks we normally sell them to seem to be having an egg eating go slow since Christmas. We've both been off colour (absolutely flu ridden might be a better description) and have not felt like eating eggs at all. The dogs have been valiantly chomping down a scrambled egg or two for breakfast most days and even the chickens got to share a dozen eggs scrambled the other day, their own eggs are very good for them, it gives them back all the nutrients they need to produce more, so slightly self defeating there then!!
Because I've not been well and also because of the dreadful weather for the past couple of weeks I've also been unable to visit my lovely Mum and brother who usually have some off us each month, so the egg mountain has built up nicely in the fridge. This week I need to get on top of this and see what I can do to reduce it slightly back to more manageable proportions.
I'm slowly starting to feel human again and after my post of the other day about housework, I have indeed even done a bit, mind you only a bit. While the washer chewed it's way through loads of towels and clothes I got out the hoover and managed to make inroads into the dust bunny population .....
...they were starting to rebel, living cheek by fluffy cheek under the cooker and in all the corners, we had a full scale dust bunny revolution going on. Some tried to hitch a lift on the dogs noses and make a desperate bid for freedom, but springing stealthily into action I managed to re home them temporarily in the hoover and now they have gone to that great dust bunny skyscraper I call the 'compost bin'.
Fluff free corners are once more the order of the day, but I spy bits of sunshine and now the grass has miraculously started to appear in all it's green glory my thoughts turn to planting once more, I feel the need to rifle through seed packets and make out a planting plans, dig over the veggie beds and begin preparing the Veggie Patch for a brand new growing season, abandoning all thoughts of housework for the coming days, weeks, months, shhhhh don't tell the dust bunnies they'll be back before I know it!!
