30 Days of Joy...............Day 8

Today I found joy in...

Discovering that green beans come in purple!

A friend of mine dropped by tonight with surplus green/purple beans from her garden. I spent the evening snapping the ends off, blanching, and storing them in freezer bags. 

Earlier, I went into my own garden and discovered about fifteen cucumbers waiting to be picked. I spent the afternoon making dill pickles. I am becoming so domesticated that it's frightening.

I am grateful to my daughter, who teaches me housewiferly tricks like this. 
Wasn't that supposed to be my job?


  1. Grandma Maybelle would be proud of you and Em.

  2. Auntie M: She's probably cheering us on behind the scene, or maybe whispering a trick or two in our ears.

  3. Wow, what a colorful cool looking plate!

  4. septembermom: What is really cook is that the purple beans turn green when you cook them.

  5. I meant what is really "cool." Freudian slip.


You won't be paid for it, but at least you'll know that you have contributed intelligence to the universe...
