Have you seen or heard of that book called "Porn for Women?" (I think that's what it's called, but I don't want to Google to make sure. You understand.) It's a book of pictures of guys doing things like cleaning the toilet, or ironing, or taking out the trash, or tending to the children. Well here's my contribution:

My husband, bless his heart, helping me shell five pounds of edamame.
9:06 a.m.
1:45 p.m.
You can't see our dinner very well, but here's what we had. In the foreground, a roasted chicken from our Amish neighbors. (Imagine our surprise Friday evening when an Amish brother and sister drove their buggy up our driveway to give us a freshly dressed chicken!) Behind the chicken, on the left, homemade sourdough bread, then "succotash" made with fresh corn and edamame from our garden, and on the right tabbouleh made with wheat from my friend Elora. The rest of the ingredients came from our garden. There are garlic dills and bread-and-butter pickles on the table, as well.

I worked really hard this weekend, doing lots of food stuff. This reaping and eating isn't for sissies! Heh. And you? How did you spend your weekend?

Porn for Women! Oh that cracks me up. It's too true though; I don't think men realize how much more attracted we would be if they just took out the darned trash like they're supposed to.
