shepherd's dozen

12 eggs a day in the fridge
10 meat birds going to the butcher tomorrow
9 minutes till I start dinner
8 sheep shorn yesterday morning
7 dollars in my back pocket
6 friends went out to enjoy indian food and Iron and Wine
5 coworkers getting fresh free-range chicken Wednesday
4 different vegetables sprouting in the raised beds
3 pounds of pork shoulder in the big crock pot
2 apple trees ready to be planted
1 sheepdog back into his herding lessons
0 things to be ungrateful for this Sunday night.

Little known fact: a shepherd's dozen is 11.

Wonderful! What do you do with all the eggs? I get 5 a day and I can hardly keep up with them--the extras end up going to friends.

It is always good to be grateful for all, good and bad.

And a baker's dozen is 13. (But when was the last time the bakery sold 13 rolls for the price of 12?? Wouldn't that be nice!)
