Roger and I did cat care for his daughter and family while they were out of town for the holidays. They live about ten miles from us. It's a beautiful drive through cow country and then over the Humboldt Bay bridge into Eureka. We love making the drive, so it was a real treat to head over there every morning for a few days to feed little Kitty Meow Meow. Roger also checked on the chickens and gathered a few eggs on Friday and then again on Sunday.
We wondered what would make such a big egg. We had absolutely no idea. It could be two yolks, but we have all seen an egg with two yolks and it didn't look like this. So, I posted the photo on Facebook, and Roger's daughter commented and added a photo of what the egg looked like after she had cracked it open to make some fried eggs on Monday.

So, that is our surprising egg story. If you are anything like me, you are thrilled to learn something new everyday. I was so happy about this. Who knew such a thing was possible, and how wonderful it is to have held such an egg and seen the craziness inside that big shell.
And this is our last post of 2014.
Happy New Year, friends!
See you in 2015.
