Have to show you these eggs!

Look at these eggs.

What do you see?

Look closely.



Okay, here are some clues:

However, in the egg carton, we find all the eggs arranged artistically.

The Egg Gatherer is not an artistic person; he’s mathematical and scientific, by nature.

But he arranges the eggs artistically into the carton, because the Egg User is artistic.

He does this joyfully.

He says not a word about this tiny surprise he has prepared for the Egg User.

He waits.

She notices and asks.

He beams.

This, after over 42 years of marriage.

Go for it.

    Aw. Lucky. My egg gatherers are my son and his friend across the street. The other mom pays a quarter for every egg collected. They don’t like collecting eggs for me, because they have to clean them and put them in the carton if they expect 25 cents per egg. Artistry of egg placement definitely not…lucky to find them in the carton or crack free πŸ˜‰ But they try πŸ˜€

        We’re getting a lot of eggs right now from our hens. I’m just happy to see them coming inside πŸ˜‰ I know the other mom feels the same way (they have close to 30 I think, now)…though I don’t know how she’s shelling out .25 per egg! Too rich for my blood!

    Nice! Abigail gathered eggs for our neighbors while they were gone a week. The hens that laid white eggs laid on one side of the box. The ones that laid brown eggs laid them on the OTHER SIDE of the pen. Amazing.

    In our house we have a two-step egg collection process. The Chief Egg Gatherer collects them and leaves them by the kitchen sink. The Assistant Egg Gatherer washes the eggs and puts them into the fridge. No matter how you divvy up the task, it’s great to have fresh eggs daily.

      So true, Sarah! Thanks for this comment and Welcome to The Conquering Mom!
      I must add, there is very little in this world better than fresh DIRTY eggs for showing your appreciating to someone who cooks them. πŸ˜‰

Is this making any sense?
