Last year, I made two resolutions: win the lottery and be joyful. I succeeded in being as joyful as I could without actually winning the lottery. So, I have carried those two over to this year, added my word of the year “create” and included one more to the list. Eat more beans.
As a special education teacher, I can tell you that a goal that simply includes the word “more” is not a good goal. “More” can not be measured. So, I knew I had to do something to make “more” happen, without actually clarifying it in a poundage amount. Enter Rancho Gordo’s Year of Beans. For a short while last year, they offered a year of beans, where you signed up to receive a shipment of beans every few months. In that shipment would be beans (of course), and a special treat. This would guarantee “more”.
Above is my first shipment. Isn’t it beautiful.
Tune in tomorrow, same time, same bat channel to find out what I do with these. It’s good, I promise.
