Another little accomplishment - I made my first big batch of beans from scratch. Ever. This is a huge, huge step for me, because making my own beans has really intimidated me. Not sure why. It was just one of those elusive things that I always thought I might learn to do but was never that motivated to try. Until I found a great tutorial on making them. I'll post about that later. Meanwhile, I gotta go check my beans. I think they're almost done! Then I'm making me a batch of cornbread. MmmmMM! There's nothing in this world I like better than cornbread.

Spring? Is That You?
Today is in the 60s. This weekend it's supposed to be in the 70s! Are you really here, Spring? Really? Or are you just teasing us? Well, my neighbor's crocuses are blooming and her tulips and daffodils are up. The trees even have fuzzy buds. Not to mention I dried my first load of laundry for the season on my drying racks yesterday! Hooray! So, Spring must be at least around the corner. Because drying laundry outside is always a good sign. It felt so good to put those clothes out to dry in the sun - especially since electricity is a gagillion times more expensive here in the east than it was out in Utah. Okay, maybe I exaggerate a little. But my dryer is taking twice as long to dry as it used to which is twice the electricity too. Needless to say, I was chomping at the bit for a warm, sunny day. Thank you, Spring!
