This pretty much says it all about what it was like at my house yesterday. All of my furry babies slept most of the snowy, cold day. My husband watched movies, I cleaned my office. I did venture out for an hour to post some packages and stop by our local farmers market. When I say local I mean around the corner. That is what I love about country life, if I need eggs they are just a farm away. In the summer I am surrounded by produce farms. There is nothing like getting you corn on the cob right out of the field.
Our local market just got in a new batch of laying hens. They do this every January and give the older hens to local small farmers who keep them for laying just for themselves, no lives lost.
Because they are still so young the hens lay eggs a little smaller. I love them, they are perfet and very delicious. And a real bargain at $2.50 for 2 dozen. I like that I can pop over there first thing in the morning and my eggs are just laid. If you are near any farms that offer fresh eggs I highly recommend them. I would pay 3 times as much for the quality of these beauties.
There is still plenty of time to enter my VALENTINES GIVEAWAY. I am adding some more surprise goodies to the package so go to the post to enter.
