Beans, Beans and more Beans ~

Someone was so helpful last night ~ when he asked "Should I soak some beans for tomorrow?" I answered "sure- go ahead, I'll bake up a batch of beans" ... little did I know he would soak FOUR pounds worth. Folks, that's a lot of beans!!

Boston Baked Beans and
 Navy Bean Soup ~ Yum! Yum!

Forcing Forsythia

If spring is going to be so stubborn and not come to the outside ~
I will force it to come on the inside! 
A week ago we had glimmers of hope for spring to arrive ~
But that was lost again with our latest snow. 
However; during last week a neighbor arrived with hopes of spring ~
Some forsythia to force!  So I put them in a vase in our bedroom window
And today I have a little color beyond the white of snow!
