Yes, dear friends, I am still alive.I do have a fairly decent excuse for not posting lately, I haven't been around my computer, I have been walking beans.
Now, I the image that pops in your head when I say "walking beans" is probably interesting or humorous.
Neither one of those things are included into what actually walking the beans is really about.
You walk up and down rows of beans, chopping weeds with a hoe or pulling weeds.
Basically, like weeding a humongous garden.
Hot, exhausting, back breaking work.
But, after two weeks, it is done.
The plus side of all this is:
Literally walking miles and miles a day, has done wonders for my weight loss plan then any of my exercise DVDs have ever done, pulling and calling the weeds names has made me BUFF (probably more because of the pulling....but whatever;)
I have a heck of a farmers tan going on (wait, is that something I want....???)
AND, last but not least, reading novels.
No, I am not that good to carry a book and a hoe and pull weeds and walk all at the same time.
The books were being read to me via audio books on an mp3 player.
But, it was the most books I have read in a long time.
Now,if I could just figure out how to knit and hoe beans at the same time.....
Anywho, ladies and gents, I have missed you all immensely and look forward to catch up on some blog reading.
Things are not necessarily slower, however I hope to be around a computer more then the last two weeks.
I also have a few recipes to share and some pics.
Until then, I thought you all might like to know that I am indeed alive, I was just out walking the beans:)
what does this adorable little porch have to do with walking beans, you ask?
Well, absolutely nothing, of course:)
