Hopefully... this is where we will wake up in the mornings once our house is built; and as we stood dreaming in the icy late afternoon sun, our future neighbor emerged from his stately mansion to get in on our reverie.



He has geese. And those geese have their own private bathing grounds! The Russian looked at me sideways from where he stood overlooking the rural landscape... "They'll wake you up in the mornings with all their squawking!"



Yes, I say, and they are better than bells...

Before we left, a fresh laid goose egg offered in parting. "Whip him up an omelette, Allison, and add a little cream!"

Bien dit de la part de ton mari. On en a parlé hier du bruit que peuvent faire les oies. Paraît que ça fait fuire les voleurs ; ) Lorsque le bruit te dérangera tu n'auras qu'à fermer les oreilles et ouvrir grand les yeux et je crois que tu aimeras cela.
Et l'omelette? était-elle bonne?

nice surroundings to build a house!

Those eggs are pretty big
Did you bake the omelette?

Joe said...

I think the Russian's right. It's amazing how much noise a goose can make.

Judy said...

Oh, but you are going to love it.

never tried an egg but I do like goose. A pleasant way to wake up, and to a goose omelette.

You'll be able to make the worlds biggest omelette! It such a beautiful place to be able to wake up each morning! I'd rather wake up to "squawking" then bells too :)

That is one large egg. I have never tasted a goose egg and can't imagine the size of that omelet it would make. Beautiful area.

A nice big egg to make a big tasty omelette, the countryside looks so peaceful and gentle rolling hills. A great spot for a new home.
We had more snow last night, I'm so looking forward to spring.
Thanks for the comments on my blog,,,M
