A Week in Farm Photos - Aug 31st to Sept. 6th

Photo: Had a great time recording a radio show this morning. We talked about our farm, herbs, my book...oh and CHICKENS!

As Fresh Eggs Daily® becomes more popular and well-known and I am beginning to field more and more offers to write and speak and appear, I am finding the delta between my personal life and 'professional' life narrowing and often times downright colliding! The daily dichotomy just makes me shake my head. I go from cleaning horse stalls while speaking with tv producers in New York, to making travel plans for speaking engagements with my hands sticky from kneading bread dough. I often speak with editors and publishers wearing mud-splattered muck boots, with a pocketful of eggs and straw in my hair.

I often have to stop writing an article to take a puppy play break, or pause from working on my next book to bring the chickens a treat. I've done many podcasts and interviews with the chickens clucking in the background because its feeding time; and have signed on new sponsors with a cacophony of ducks playing in their pool in the background.

Sunup to sundown, I find myself writing and rewriting, snapping photos and editing them, jotting down new ideas, going through photos on my cell phone as I stand filling water buckets, or working on a blog post as I stir a pot on the stove with the other hand. But I do love it (most of the time!) and feel so fortunate that all of these newfound opportunities allow me to share what Fresh Eggs Daily® is all about and promote natural chicken care to an ever-widening audience.

It is true that when you love what you do, you don't work another day in your life. However, I make sure I take time to relax and knit, bake or read for pleasure on a regular basis because these are the things that feed the soul. And of course country living is the absolute best destressor. Enjoy this peek at my week - and thanks for  coming along for the ride.

Photo: Good morning to you! Got any plans?

Photo: My sour dough starter looks like an Arab, but I promise you it's all American... My grandmother's vintage tea towel over a Ball jar!

Photo: I never thought I would say this about a duck... but Gregory is one handsome dude!


Photo: Serenity.... Just how I like it.




Photo: 100 degrees in the shade and Ophelia decided it was a good time for a dust bath!


Photo: -You know it's gonna feel like 100 today?
-I do Cecilia. I've got watermelon in the freezer for you already.
-Okay, just checking.... Can I have some treats now though?
-No Cecilia, eat your breakfast and then find a nice cool spot in the shade.


Photo: Everyone was glad for the sun to go down on this unbearably hot, humid day. We're hoping for a cooler tomorrow.



Photo: Guess who's broody? Sitting in the middle of the cut grass feast! Silly Ophelia!




Photo: What a way to end a holiday weekend! Hope you all had a great one!

Photo: Forget Manhattan, give me the country life!

Photo: Don't they though?


I would love for you to join me here...
