count them - four actual, for real snap beans growing on my three leggy, raggedy looking snap bean plants in the window sill. And I'm not for sure certain, but it looks like the cucumber and zucchini plants might be thinking about setting some blossoms. What I think may be blossoms are tiny, so it will be a while before I know for sure. Hope springs eternal. :)
That's about all the excitement this old heart can stand. The rest of my week and weekend is planned to be pretty quiet and has me dehydrating hash browns and more onions. My grocery order this week includes several bags of Great Northern beans to replace those I have taken out of storage to can into pork and beans. I am using a new recipe so I won't post it unless the finished product is really good. I will do those maybe next week when the outdoor temps cool down a bit.
I did have a nice phone call earlier this week. Granddaughter Boston called to tell me she had passed the test and had received her learner's permit to drive. She was so excited and I am glad she thought to share that excitement with me. David, my youngest son and her Dad, called me a couple of days later and during our conversation remarked that he could barely make it in the door in the evening before Boston was right there asking, 'Can we go for a drive, Dad? Let's go for a drive.' I laughed. I'm sorry. Just couldn't help myself. Especially when I think of the fact that this is the first to learn to drive and there are two more waiting in the wings. I expect one day David will laugh about it, too. But not just yet. :)
