Eggs in a regular grocery store absolutely can NOT rival eggs from truly free range chickens. Our chickens roam our property scratching and pecking and finding lots of "yummy" bugs to eat. Their eggs are so healthy and the yolks a brilliant color. It sounds silly I'm sure, but I absolutely love finding a freshly laid egg. This never gets old for me.

(Note that I'm not knocking store bought eggs and milk - they really are healthy. But certain conditions make them even healthier.)

When Lilly was alive, she was so fascinated by our Christmas tree with it's lights. So I bought her a small, artificial tree with the idea of keeping it up year round for her to enjoy. She died 10 days before she got her present. But I decided to put it up anyway, in her memory, and have a different "theme" for each month. I like having our "Lilly Tree" - it comforts me - and Solomon now is old enough, he enjoys helping decorate it.
November is "turkey theme" - Lilly's pumpkin hat is the tree topper:

Day 23 - Clothes:
Today is rather chilly - it's sunny but is only about 45 degrees. I was thinking this morning how grateful I am to have warm clothes to wear. Not only that, I am blessed to have clothes that fit pretty well, and they are in colors and styles that I like.
