I’ve gotten the opportunity to volunteer on several farms all over the world. Ahh, such grand memories! They differed in many ways, but a common quality was the concept of recycling. Trash can? Only if the animals won’t eat it! Food scraps, egg shells, fruit skin and anything else parishable is collected as the day goes on. I love the idea of using all parts of any edibles as seen in the post I eat my left overs first, so this just makes me happy!
Fun Fact: By placing fresh eggs pointy side down, it allows the air pocket to settle at the rounder top end. This keeps the yolk centered and further away from possible bacteria. I found this website that goes into much more detail!
Another trick: Boil your eggs for only one minute then remove from the heat and cover for 15 minutes. Your yolks will be creamy and soft, uh yum.
“Look Keka! I got a bullfrog!”
Tornado warnings and thunder storms just meant that the fun stayed on the porch and continued inside.
Random things to do on a rainy day…
Play with the little kids (and wonder how the others can distroy a clean room in under 2 minutes).
I’ll close this post with a small personal fun fact. There’s been a petite bracelet on my wrist since 2012. I tied it on during my backpacking through Spain and brought a matching one home to my dear cousin Lana. She put it on her wrist that same day and it lasted through the years of wear and tear… until now. Upon it falling off, she immediently wrapped it around baby Kasiah’s arm for the next chapter. Little item, big meaning. Love you girls!
