Non-Friday Eye Candy

So this weekend I slipped away and visited my dear friend Susan (aka Chicken Mama) on her little farm. It's not a long drive (only 20 minutes!) but sometimes it seems like a world away when we're both going crazy. And true to her nickname, she had just indulged in retail therapy: baby chicks! I love her idea of retail therapy, I must tell you. :)

I got to sit and chat with one of the most wonderful and kind people I've ever met, be run over by big dogs in search of petting and watched by the ever curious cats. And, of course, visit the chickens. It was only a little over an hour, but it was a wonderful mini vacation.

And look what she sent me away with:

Aren't they beautiful? And yes, the one in front really is green. :)

Have a wonderful week, everyone!

Ahh, those eggs are so pretty, how can anyone eat them :-) I love fresh eggs.

I got some cool glass buttons on my blog you might enjoy. They are on my Garter Stripe sweater.

Wow! So shiny and perfect! They almost look as though they're made of marble or polished stone. Looks like I'm going to be a grandma sooner than later ... just got the call that they'll induce my stepdaughter tomorrow ... can't wait!!!

Very nice trip. I haven't had any farm fresh eggs in a long while.
Love that you had such a great weekend. Green Eggs? Never seen a green egg. Just brown ones as fresh as yours.

I just love baby chicks. When they are sleeping and one moves, they all do so like a wave.
It sounds like you both had a great visit.

Those eggs are beautiful! I love the colour of that green one. It would make a nice yarn colour, perhaps even for a Muir shawl.
