Things that make us happy

Today was the Spencer Ag show, something we go to every year, I woke up feeling like a new person so, after my daily shot, we headed north. There are speakers, agricultural displays, a great lunch and lots of giveaways. You have to be there to win so we stayed to the bitter end, they were drawing for 25# of meat from the Ruthven locker and drew two names, neither one who claimed it and the third time was a charm for me!


Even better was that the prize was not for 25# but 50#!!  Ruthven was only about 12 miles east of Spencer, we would never be so close, it was open until 5 so away we went and claimed my winnings in hamburger, about 10#!!!

See Brucie smile???

There isn't much Bruce loves more than a big juicy hamburger and we were getting a little low in that department in my quest to empty the freezer. I know what we are having for dinner tomorrow.

On the way home we came into the little town of Petersen and had to slow down for a herd of deer who were tromping through town as though they owned it. I didn't have my camera but did have my tablet and finally got a few pictures.

They were very cooperative and stayed around while I fumbled with the tablet and wished I had my camera. That's it, I'm never leaving home without it! They are neat to watch but I can only imagine how tough it would be to try and garden with this gang terrorizing the town.

It was just getting dark when we finally arrived home and I went to the chicken house to gather eggs and put the chickens to bed. The girls are really stepping up these days, I found all these eggs in one nest and not a one was frozen.

My two little Serama girls are finally laying.....

....these tiny little snack eggs.

 Hardboiled, sprinkled with Cookies seasoning, served on a Club cracker with mayo, celery with peanut butter, a few almonds, grapes and a glass of wine.....


And that is what makes me happy, tonight, tomorrow will bring a whole round of other things, stay tuned.

Feel free to tell me what makes you happy.
