Mirror mirror on the wall who is the egg thief

Our neck of the woods dodged a bullet with the blizzard that passed through the beginning of the week.  We had a coating of ice, which thankfully melted quickly with the return of the sun.  It was beautiful, all glistening and sparkly in the sun.  Really, I can’t complain about… Continue reading Mirror mirror on the wall who is the egg thief
