Finally! Beans!

This will be the last picture I take of the trellis. I’m harvesting beans from it every other day. I’m freezing them as fast as I pick them and sharing them with neighbors.

This was a very satisfying project I just have to say 🙂

I’m enjoying the sunny days right now. I water things twice a day. Cool of the morning and evening. I’m reading the Anastasia books again. It seems fresh to me. Like I might of missed many things the first time I read the series. I even shared the first book with a friend who wanted to read something new that had new thoughts. Well, that fit the bill! lol

I designed and tatted a new bracelet but I haven’t put any up at the shop. I’ve had too much fun wearing them myself and my friends have too. I even traded one for a beaded one. lol  I do like a good trade! I made a red/white one a blue/white one and a purple/white one. I may put one up some time.

I haven’t been doing much else right now. I’ve slowed down. My muse has slowed down. Which is good for me. It was running way too fast for me for the longest time. I’m happy doing not much but reading.

There is a site online called Frugal Haus Knitting and they had a very good knitting pattern for a french shopping bag. I had gotten the pattern long long ago from there. I just came across it here recently. I did okay when I made all the other one’s last year from memory. But the last one I made, I played with my own pattern. Which I’m sure isn’t mine actually, it’s got to be a written one somewhere along the line. But I knit 3 knit in 1 knit stitch all the way around, then straight knit for two rows after and repeated. I wonder if it has a name? Boy this gives the best stretchy lace!  I think I’m beginning to get in the mood for some knitting now.

I got a recipe for refrigerator pickled veggies which I’m doing this season. I am getting great white cucumber’s now. So I’ll make a pepper/cuke/green bean pickle 🙂

I’ll take a picture of that when I get it filled up 🙂

I just harvested a gallon of lemon balm and plan on adding it to sun tea. So I best get at it and get it outside for the sun cure 🙂

Blessings to all
