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?
