Fruits of My Labor

On Friday I was able to harvest (I like saying harvest) my first string beans. Yesterday I used them for dinner.

In a pan of butter, I sauteed some onions, garlic and beef bouillon cubes then added a touch of water and my fresh string beans. The rest of the meal consisted of shrimp with alfredo sauce over fettuccine.

Harvest is a joyful time of gathering the produce of the land.

Here is a photo that I am thinking of submitting to show motion.

My settings are f/5.6, 1.6s, 55mm, ISO200 Sony a65, minor edits.

Cherry Pie

The weather is getting nicer here in New Jersey so I began working on my flowerbeds at the front of the house.  I planted some double bloom Lilies, Azelas, Gerber Daisies, Pansies, and Hostas.  I still need a few more things to make it just right for me.

After the rain yesterday I took some pictures of my newly planted flowers.  The rain on this Gerber Daisy makes the center look like cherry pie.  What do you think?

I Made It

Sunday was my 50th birthday.  I made it.  Due to some major health issues in the past I sometimes felt that I would not see 50.  Due to science, doctors, and God, I made through and hope to see many more birthdays.

My children, son-in-law, nephews and sister-in-law (more like a sister) gathered at a local restaurant, Benihanas, to celebrate me turning half century.



Family is everything!

My little helper

Snapping string beans with mom-mom.




My grandson wanted to help me prepare dinner for this evening.

I clipped the ends of the fresh stringbeans and he snapped them in half.

I thought that he would lose interest very fast but he was determined to snap away.

To my surprise he helped with the entire pot.
