I don't know if I'm a bit dazed (due to being sleepy) or if I'm finally heeding the happiness books and blogs, but I feel so much more mellow and happy these days. Even when I start complaining about something, it blows over and my mood evens out really quickly afterwards.

This morning when I was harvesting beans, I noted that my back was killing me - because bush beans are murder on one's back - but I also felt really happy that we'll have our delicious frozen green beans in the depths of winter.

The boys harvested cherry and grape tomatoes while I was picking beans. We'll process those this afternoon. Oh, and here they are, working hard: The chicks are growing nicely. Here's a photo from a couple of days ago. Notice their wing feathers are coming in with patterns:Here's a close up photo with the little chipmunk chick in the middle.Ok, maybe this time next week, I'll have my act together enough to re-start Thursday Thirteens. :)
