but I brightened it up by cooking some fresh green beans with new potatoes, onion and ham. I also fixed cornbread to go with it. Yummy!! Then I proceeded to sit down and eat a big bowl of it. This is the only way I like green beans. The canned green beans are awful I think, no matter how you doctor them up with bacon, onion, etc. But then I am not much of a vegetable eater, except for green lima beans which I love.
This brought back memories of when Jim and I had our garden and we would grow green beans, peas, tomatoes, etc. Speaking of gardens, did you notice the tomato plant that rambling on has? It is gorgeous with big tomatoes on it already. I have been pining so and missing my garden so much. Yesterday I was looking at the plants in Wal*Mart and I saw they were marking down the big potted tomato plants from $10 to $4.98. I purchased two plants. My daughter laughed at me asking what I would do with two tomato plants. I told her I would just look out my back door at them and imagine I was looking at my garden back home. Even if I don’t get one tomato from these plants I will consider it money well spent.

Have any of you seen the nursing ads from Johnson & Johnson? The one where the male nurse is giving a young girl her chemo shot and singing a banana song with her while he is doing it just tears me up. In fact all of those ads promoting a nursing career are very moving. I met some wonderful nurses during Jim’s illness and sadly I met a couple that were not so wonderful.
I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.
