First, a note about my last post. Another reason to enjoy the moment: the next moment might involve falling face first off the swing.
Okay, onto today's post. Have you ever thought you knew everything about something, then new knowledge appears before you and you realize you know nothing, in fact? Okay, so really, I don't know everything about most things. But I DO know almost everything about one thing: GREEN BEANS. they are green, they are beans. pole or bush. good steamed with butter. done.
Now, enter our neighbor from Suriname He is a great neighbor, and even luckier for us, a GREAT farmer. A couple of days ago he knocked on the door and handed us these:
What in the world are THOSE? We asked.
Yeah, they're like green beans, but long.
:) Holy deena. Never heard of long beans in my whole life. Turns out, they're also great steamed with butter.
Thursday night I accompanied a gal for her masters vocal recital. It was intense. I will have to get into it another day. Hopefully I will even be able to include youtube proof. In the meantime, I'm so crazy glad it's over. Now I can move onto more exciting things, like sewing projects! :)
I saw these drawstring bags on my favorite blog. I have been wanting to use my girl-on-a-swing fabric for awhile, and this was a great excuse. Plus, we have thousands of toys that need hiding. I told Annie was I going to make her eight more of these.
MOM, ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!
(ps--go gators, and she did it herself this morning, I promise.)
And here's the start of my next quilt, just because I can. Also from my favorite blog. I love that Vermont lady.
Long beans, who knew?
