This morning...

You are probably starting to wonder what's with the eggs-in-a-bowl photos... Well, a little while ago, an egg had broken in the container and so I put the remaining eggs in a pretty bowl.

It made me remember that growing up we never had our eggs in an egg carton, but always in a basket or a bowl or - later on - a wire basket that looked like a chicken. They look so much prettier out of their normal container, don't you think?

A simple joy. That's what that is for me.

And here are some others:
✼ taking Winslow for a walk in the dark this morning
✼ Ramses coming with us for half the walk and then waiting for us to return
✼ fresh air that smelled to me of mornings in Germany when I was growing up
✼ the wind in the tree tops
✼ owls hooting somewhere nearby
✼ a hot cup of tea next to me
✼ snuggling back into bed and blogging for a while
✼ getting inspired with every one of your blogs I visit
✼ reading and loving every comment you leave me
✼ my knitting waiting patiently for the few rows I knit every morning
✼ a whole day ahead to do with as I please...

Wishing you a day filled with simple joys!

  6. I love the photo of the eggs in the bowl! I grew up in the south and had to collect eggs from the hen house as a kid. There was no egg carton! LOL Usually we just wrapped them up in a dish cloth until we got them inside and washed them off!...Ahh Yes! Simply chicken pleasures! ^_^ Nice post, Silke!

  7. Well, they just look so much nicer in that bowl! I just keep them in the carton.

    Love your gratitude lists Silke! I so need to start my own. You are always an inspiration!

  8. I used to have a red coated wire egg basket for collecting eggs; it had a cone shape up the center so the weight of the eggs wouldn't crack any.
    I even liked the old crinkly cardboard egg cartons, but hate the new ones. The eggs always come out when I get them home. Ick. They make squeaky noises......
    Here's to baskets and bowls!


  9. Love your list. I always feel so much better reading your blog. thank you for what you do.

  10. Liebe Silke,

    ein herzlicher Gruß
