Easy Does It
The less effort put into acquiring something, the less it's appreciated by its owner. My kids HATE that...or more precisely they hate that their parents believe this to be true. I want is usually countered with how much money do you have? Then they're expected to earn the money to buy the excess, like video games, with the money they make mowing lawns and such. They call it mean, we call it character building.
Take a walk. No equipment needed! And if you have one of these...they're always eager to go!

I love eggs. Always have, even when they were the bad guys. I never doubted them and it seems science is finally giving them the credit they deserve. They're little vitamin powerhouses containing vitamins A, B, D, E, Biotin, Choline, Folic Acid, Iodine, Iron, Lutein and zeaxanthin, Phosphorous, Protein, and Selenium (I didn't know these by heart...I got the list from a Medical News Today article. To read all about egg goodness, click the link.)

then gently squeezed its sides.
Consider it the sexy way
to ease an egg from its shell.
Want to make a better egg?
*Boil eggs for ten minutes (I start the timer once the water is boiling)
*After ten minutes, remove from heat.
*Drain hot water.
*Cover eggs with ice and water and allow to cool.
(Ice water will make the yolks fluffier and a brighter yellow.)
*Then peel. I like to crack the egg at the wider bottom, then squeeze it gently. Start from the side or top and the shell clings to the egg.
