How about that…..The thirteenth Monday report on Monday the thirteenth. And no, it wasn’t planned.
If I were a superstitious person, I might have to skip this week. But I’m not, so on with the show. tee hee
We had our first mess of green beans last week.
Well, I’ve been collecting for several weeks. At first, only a few of my green beans came up. A couple of weeks later I sprouted some green bean seeds and replanted them. So, most of my green beans are a couple of weeks behind the first few.
I’ve been collecting a handful every couple of days and putting them in a storage bag in the refrigerator until I had enough for a mess.
You DO know what a mess is don’t you? A mess is enough to cook for one meal. Just in case you didn’t know.
While I was stringing and snapping them, my mind wandered back in time.
Childhood memories of sitting in the livingroom with Mom and Dad, watching tv.
Each of us had a big bowl of green beans to string and snap.
It was one of my favorite garden chores.
That and shucking corn.
It’s some of the simpler things in life that bring about good memories.
