Beans! said Homer

Sunday, July 26, 2020

Does anyone else remember the kids book that has the quote “Beans! Said Homer... “I’m not a pest!” It is blueberries and beans season! We have 6 gallons of blueberries in the freezer, and 3 gallons of beans from this year, so far. I mostly pick blueberries, and dad mostly picks the beans. Then I snap the beans and dad sorts the blueberries. I haven’t picked any blueberries for the past three days, because of a wicked migraine. I am on a steroid to try and break it. I think it may be starting to work. I do okay first thing in the morning. Then I go walk the dogs with dad... and by the time we get back I am light headed, and shaky, and my head is bad again. (And yes, I check my blood sugar and generally it is just fine). I feel bad for not helping much the past three days, but dad says not to worry about it. If I am unwell then I should rest. I can snap beans in a cool, dim room... and it’s a mindless activity. So I can do it even with a migraine. (Well, as long as I can focus I can). I will try and pick blueberries tomorrow if I am not too shaky after our morning walk. Guess what we are having for lunch today? Yep, fresh picked green beans!
