My day (with companion)

                                                      
                                                       still need lights in the morning

                                                              
                                                         and coffee...                                                      

                                                        
                                                           Phoebe is on vacation this week

                                                    
                                                              not my favorite job...
                                                              
                                            
               checking in on the ladies... or the P.L.O as I've been calling them (Poultry Ladies Organization)

                                      
                                                      out on the road...to the post office

                    
                                                        hmmm...I wanted candles but....


                                                                            waiting


                                                         Phoebe waiting- oh to be small again


                                                               the expensive farm near me


                                                       I came for the mushrooms


                                                      snow??       always driving


                                                       the less expensive farm near me


                                                             now the real activity begins


                                             holiday cheer for the P.L.O  cracked corn and lights!


                                                             Noah's violin lesson


                                                        more waiting...at least there's music


                                                                  driving home


                                                          dinner- it's vegetarian :)


     My table doesn't usually look this good- but we like to celebrate the shortest day of the year with candles
                                                                   ( and fancy glasses)


                                                      torturing the cat  (secretly he loves it)

                                          
                                               torturing my husband- usually he likes it too :)


                                                        bed time finally for the little ones                                                    


                                                          now I get to sack out and relax

So great Kristen! Yes, love the fresh egg option - my dream to own a small farm may come true one day.

Kristen: your photos here and on your blog make me want to come move in with you. Or at least take my next vacation hanging around your home with you and your kids!

Your last photo is so evocative. Isn't it so nice that it ended up snowing in Massachusetss on the day we were doing this project. It added a little wonder to what might have seemed a dreary day.

And yes, I do wish someone would push me around in a shopping cart once in a while (as I grab boxes of cookies off the shelf).

Wishing you and yours a merry Christmas.
