The Mouse and The Egg
My Uncle in Texas recently sent me a couple suprise books in the mail. They were discards from his local library. One of them was this Russian fable about an old man and woman who live a simple life in their cottage with a mouse and speckled hen. But when the old man begins to complain of his brown egg for tea, his wife warns him to be thankful. And in the end he learns his lesson.
I have one husband, three children, two cats and a house full of too many books to count. I love to read, ride my bike, bake, develop my own photographs, and I've been known to neglect all housework to play with my kids.
