Before the flu came, though, we had Ashley over for a very fun day of washing, snapping and blanching beans together (Ryan had dropped her off on his way to work.) We had such a fun time together! And it was nice to be able to get more beans put up in the freezer and have quite a few bags to send home with Ashley as well.
Ashley and Leah having fun snapping beans . . . there were some entertaining photos taken before and after this one! It was hilarious listening to these two! Such fun times. :)
It was enjoyable browsing the different booths together and commenting on the different things that would catch our eyes. I hadn't intended on getting anything this day, but when I came to a 75% off booth that was selling out of their items and caught sight of a large, wooden fruit crate that would end up being less than $2.00 after the discount, well, I couldn't pass it up. :) We found a quick use for it in our living room as a bookshelf for our animal/farming/gardening books . . .
It was interesting how this worked out as just a day or two before, Daddy had mentioned that he would like to get a bookshelf where we could keep all of these types of books together. So this worked out perfectly!
After Ashley, Leah and I had thoroughly perused the booths and shelves at the antique store (and found two little children's books as well), we headed home for a bit more visiting together before Ryan arrived on his way home from work to pick Ashley up. All in all, it was a fun and enjoyable day together!
