From the Garden (a Little)

I am spending a little time each day this week, weeding out old things that I don’t need anymore. I have boxes that I have moved from house to house and now is the time to purge.

I’ve been through about 6-7 boxes so far. Only less than one box stays, and that may thin even further at a later date.

At the same time, we are having a bit of a heat wave. Today is hotter than yesterday, and it appears that my living room is 86F/30C right now (5pm). Outside is maybe 94F or so.

Somehow the distraction of this big project, coupled with heat, made me ignore lunch until almost 5. Mind you, I get up later than others do, but lunch is usually about 2pm or so. Whoops!

It is too hot to cook, I’d say, so I made a salad. We had a can of black beans in the refrigerator just for salads. I drained/rinsed them, added a tomato and basil from our own garden, and then added olive oil and some spinach. It was light and cool, and just right.

I ate it on our fun porch… green table, purple floor. And the salad was pretty, too!

    I love bean salads! I think I’ll make one for us to have tomorrow.

    Your salad looks good enough to eat :-D I often make salads for dinner in the summer, served with a nice crusty French bread and a tall glass of iced tea or a lovely glass of white wine (or both:).

    It’s been in the 90s in TC as well and not all that much warmer out here in the desert. At least in MI the heat generally doesn’t last more than a couple of weeks. We will temps of 100+ until around the end of Sept.

    Your green table and purple floor is absolutely delightful :-D
