This week I’m traveling on the road again for the next two weeks. I’m headed to the Country Living Fair in Columbus, Ohio, a ribbon cutting ceremony, and then off to the Mother Earth News Fair in Seven Springs, Pennsylvania. Before we left, I received a very special package from one of my favorite companies, Fluffy Layers. The owner, Tara, is so thoughtful and a Mom like me. She sent me something that she knew Maddy and I would just adore, these matching Mommy and Me Farm Aprons.
Maddy and I have been putting them to good use. She is usually my partner in crime when it comes to doing chicken chores and things. She’s my shadow. It’s now become a ritual to put our aprons on before we visit the girls in the morning, especially if she is dressed and ready for school already.
The girls are finally coming out of their molts and beginning to lay again. Today we got three eggs. It’s nice to see them returning. Three were a surprise for us. Lately it has just been one.
One egg was perfect for the pocket in this apron. I joked with Maddy that we were going to have to order her another apron from Fluffy Layers in her size with more pockets for eggs. She told me that we would just bring these inside and use them for our baking. I had to agree that sounded nice, especially entering the holidays soon.
For now, we have been hanging the aprons in the garden shed at our new house near the chicken coop in the backyard. As fall weather arrives, I will be bringing these farm aprons inside and give them a good washing so we can transition their use to fall baking and holidays. They wash so nicely and I am thrilled to add this apron to my growing collection. Tara has so many garden and farm featured products you’ll have to check her and her company out.
In the meantime, I hope to see some of you on my travels. It’s always so wonderful to connect with you when I am away. Meeting you makes me feel right at home.
