Random Five Friday



It is all eggs all of the time here at the farmette.  It is the sweetest gift at the end of each afternoon.  

Advice this week from my 2nd grade student:  Do Not ever try to hunt Easter Eggs in a barley field.  

Our local small town McDonalds is under new management.  This is a good thing, but the new guys told the morning coffee group that they couldn't keep their personal, flavored creamers in the fridge anymore.  I don't think this kind of big city idea is going to fly around these parts.  

My Family Tree DNA results are slowly becoming available, bit by interesting bit.  Looking forward to sharing these soon.  

How about a little 80's jam to start your weekend?

  2. Michelle My Family Tree DNA results sounds very interesting I look forward to hearing more. Funny about the flavoured coffee creamers at McDonald's I think they should leave it alone, your town sounds lovely. Eggs are a great gift and barley field yes that would be hard:) Hug B

  7. Oh the promise of fresh eggs with a bit of buttered bread to stick into the yolk... :-)

    Thanks for reminding me that I was very young in the 80s. :-)

  8. They actually kept personal creamers for the morning bunch in their fridge? I am amazed.

  9. You know it's small town when you can keep your own creamer in the McD's frig. haha.

  11. I'm missing a nest of eggs somewhere. Need to get the neighbor kids down here for an Easter egg hunt!

  12. Locating eggs is a barley field would not be an easy task. I want to do the DNA family tree as well....fascinates me. I must say that the new manager probably had NO idea what he was implying. :-)

  13. The neighbors across from us have chickens and they lay blue or green eggs, so we see colored eggs year round!

  16. ha, we both had a little genealogy post today! i don't know why new management won't allow them to keep their cream in the fridge, weird! cute quote from your student :)

  17. I guess that new manager needs a little convincing by the local coffee drinkers. Tell him well.. if that's the case.. we need to find a new place to buy all of our coffees each morning.. every month.. all year.. .. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  19. LOVE me some 80s JAM! Ok I have to ask... why NOT hunt Easter eggs in a barley field?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh my......what will they do? Doesn't the new management know that you can't take Country Life out of the Country.,..even if you are McDonald's?

  21. DNA adventure??? Everyone i know who had that done is thrilled to find they are related to all of humanity . . . I hope you have found interesting bits . . . Hmm, maybe the coffee bunch will come up with interesting ways to carry flavored creamer . . . . could get interesting.

    love & love to YOU!!!

  22. Now I'm dying to know why you shouldn't hunt Easter Eggs in a Barley field!
    Our local McDonalds is being torn down and a new one is going up in a few months.
    Loved the soft colors of your eggs.

  23. The eggs look like their pink and purple.

  24. I'm still laughing about the coffee creamer. :) I'm down to one hen, so I treasure her daily gift- I look forward to seeing it nestled in the egg box and am mightily disappointed on days she takes an egg vacation. Never tried hunting eggs in a barley field, but I trust second graders implicitly.

  25. Ah, progress comes to rural America with more ridiculous rules. I can see why egg hunts in barley fields might be painful. Fresh eggs sound like the perfect breakfast. xo Karen

  27. Cette simple découverte des œufs reste toujours un événement surprenant et qui nous rattache au mystère de la vie.

  28. I miss my life in our province seeing this photo. I suddenly remember my childhood collecting eggs from our backyard. :)

    Happy weekend! :)

  29. I'm chuckling about your McDonalds coffee crew...I think every small town has one of those...actually a town near me has three- one at McDonalds, one at Burger King and one at a local burger joint. LOL. Have fun with your dna results!...I did mine at ancestry, my dad's at familytreedna and also my cousins. Found some very interesting connections with other surnames, which is what makes it so interesting!

  30. Easter egg hunting in a barley field could produce some unwanted finds, perhaps? It seems that the local McDonald's new management is less friendly to the morning coffee groyp, which may have to switch locales OR bring in their creamers every time.

  31. hehe, talk about small town!! that would never fly around here!! but how sweet that there is a coffee group....and rules at micky d's!!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I hope the new 'rule' at McD's results in a talk with local eateries to see if they'd like to take your coffee crew (and creamers) under their wing/into their fridge! I don't know which peeves me more - 'corporate n big city' rules being forced on an arrangement that works happily OR just the act itself of one more small (functional) joy in life being messed with for no good reason... Here's to taking all that caffine revenue elsewhere! lol

    Will be interesting to see what DNA links arise from your search! (I'd be afraid to seek and find for myself as there'd undoubtedly be a link to insanity, roflmao)

    Hugs Issy

  33. Your small town life makes me sigh every time I log on here. What I would give to have fresh eggs every day! Let us know what happens with your family tree DNA? I've been wanting to research mine for ages!

  34. Thanks for the music link. Normally I wouldn't give this a second thought if it was on the radio, but as a musician I found it very engaging. I'll be watching out for more of their stuff now.
    I was out with a friend for a walk last weekend and came across a nest of eggs in the middle grass tuft of an isolated farm track on the hill, hopefully it was on too much of a slope for regular vehicles to drive on.
