why the sad face

++Eyes are open. They are tumbling and tackling all over my mudroom floor, constantly underfoot. But so cute.

like mother like daughter

++We checked off exactly, um, let's see ZERO!! days since we started the chart! Out of sight, out of mind….

promises, promises

++As of today, we've collected, (though I think we've forgotten to count a few) 257 eggs. Wow. I gave four dozen away today, just to make room in my refrigerator. And I've officially burned my family out on quiche. Time to move on to the frittata.

++A hello and thank you, to those of you who are wandering over here from National Wildlife's Green Hour blog. I was honored to be included in their round up of "blogs that inspire" I've mentioned it before, there are some great activities on their blog worth checking out. They even have a weekly podcast.

++I also wanted to let you know that Gina of LetterGirl, one of my May sponsors is having an anniversary celebration on her blog, with giveaways all week. I hesitate to tell you, because I don't want more competition in the giveaways!! but her work is too good not to share.

++Last but not least, I remember catching the tail end of a commercial about this company Toms shoes. Here's a video that shares the founder/owner, Blake Mycoskie's story and is definitely worth watching. It is these kinds of stories and passion that inspires me.

  1. I just posted something about Toms on my FB page (and maybe on my blog? Oy. Too many places to be) and had several friends hop over to purchase a pair. Loverly.

    We should have counted our eggs. I’ve no idea how many we’ve gotten from our five girls but we give away a ton, mainly to our neighbors so they don’t hate us for having chickens who wake them up.

    Thanks for the kitten pics. No more kittens in my life with allergic husband. Oh, how I miss them.

  2. I was about to say what Erin just said–I’d take a kitten and some of your eggs 🙂 Too cute.

    I saw that Tom’s Shoes commercial the other day, too. It’s a nice enterprise.

  3. Those are some sweet little faces. I guess it is hard to focus on the chores at hand to earn a “fur real” pet when you have so many cute live distractions around!

  4. I so wish I could have one of your kitties!! One of our cats died last June, and I’m getting to the point of being ready for another…
