6 July 2009

This morning, Momma picked our first harvest of green beans from our boxes. The plants are happy and healthy (though a bit short), and are producing delicious-looking beans. And that color of green is downright charming!

Yesterday, I rebound (using the Zutter binder) an older copy of Hidden Art by Mrs. Edith Schaeffer. I wanted it in notebook form so that it would be quick to flip through and I could easily take notes. I did do something silly with the binding (as in punching the holes on the wrong side of the book), but it just reminds me that I’m not perfect and how much I need my Savior — even in the little things!

As to my recovery, I am doing very well indeed! Friday was the first day that I was able to bearably go without pain medicine, and I have been feeling progressively better each day. Now, I am nearly back to normal (minus four wisdom teeth). Thank you all for your prayers!

    I am so glad that you are feeling better! I missed your posts! Not that the pictures weren’t neat, but it just wasn’t the same. :)

    Have a very bright, very cheerful day!

    Hello Emily Rose!
    I’m so glad to hear that you are feeling much better!

    The photgraphs of the green beans are simply cheery and delightful! Thanks for sharing!
    And what a great idea to re-do the binding of Hidden Art!

    Joyfully in Jesus, Elizabeth

    Those green beans are simply gorgeous! I think that it’s funny how some of the most beautiful things in life are food, (i.e. I just love seeing eggs frying in a pan!).

    I am glad that you’re feeling better! Hope to hear from you soon.

    Beautiful photos as always. I love them in the enamel strainer bowl. I have one just like it. Or is it mine…did you sneak in my kitchen for that shot? Wish you would have left the beans! I hope you get to feeling better soon.
    Have a Blessed Week.

    The beans look delightful! Ours aren’t ready to pick yet.

    I’m glad your mouth is feeling better. It seems that everyone is getting there wisdom teeth pulled about now!

    Glad to hear you are feeling better.

    By the way, we grow sandalwood trees on our farm. Dad has us kids do some of the work – pruning, weeding and watering – a small part of the farm. It is really hard work, but is so worth it!

    Have you read all of Hidden Art? I have it on my to-read list, and am looking forward to reading it. Joshua (16yo brother) has been reading books and listening/watching DVD’s of Francis Schaeffer.

    I love the beauty in the everyday gifts of beans and books.
    I bought a used copy of Hidden Art online a few months ago. When it arrived, it was the ugliest looking book I’d seen. I removed the torn and worn dust jacket only to see an awful mustardy yellow color. I sat down and immediately sewed a simple homespun gingham book cover with lace bookmark attached. Now, it’s one of my favorite books!
