Leap for Joy

It's Leap Day!  That's kind of a big deal, right?

I mean, how often does this really happen?  (Once every 4 years, but you probably already knew that)

I didn't really do anything different or special today.  Unless you consider Brian making us an omelette this morning special - in which case we celebrated with breakfast!

One of Brian's co-workers gave us 18 fresh eggs from his very own chickens!  I LOVE eggs, especially when I know that these were laid by free-range chickens that are loved and hand-fed by a 3 year old little girl.  Not to mention that their yolks are the most beautiful marigold hue, and the flavor is unlike any store-bought eggs I've ever tasted.

He made a bell pepper, onion and bacon omelette with some shredded mozzarella cheese that we split right down the middle.  So good!  I drizzled my half with a teensy bit of Mrs. Renfro's salsa verde.  With a little fruit trio on the side for sweetness, and of course coffee.

Today's workout was Chest and Triceps (see it here).  It went much better than last week so I know I'm getting stronger.  I followed it up with a nice 3 mile walk with Hudson around the neighborhood.  It was HOT today - my car said 86 degrees (yikes!).  Straight into summer time, where was SPRING?

Hudson didn't mind the heat so much...

Somebody was not feeling very posey today.
Clearly he can't be bothered to stand still for more than 1 second when it's this nice outside.

I have a delicious soup recipe up next, so make sure you check back for that!

How did you commemorate Leap Day?  Did you do anything different or special to celebrate this day that only comes around once every 4 years?



  1. Oh I love Hudson!! That omlet looks deeelish! I LOVE fresh eggs... the best!!

    1. So good, it's incredible the difference between fresh and grocery store eggs! Makes me want to have my own chickens some day ;-)
