beans + manure

I was thinking last night about how much I love beans. Then in class this morning:

Annibale Carracci, The Beaneater, oil on canvas, Galleria Colonna, Rome, 1580-90

Mmmmmm!! But really, who doesn't like beans? Little pods of nutritious and delicious.

The last few days have wiped me out (always out by Tuesday). Lack of sleep...caught the cold going around. My nose is so stuffed up that the only thing I can smell is the manure/bark that the gardeners have been spreading all over campus. Is it gross that I am enjoying the scent of manure? Perhaps all the methane is getting to my head. In any case, happy that it's Wednesday - only have one class and a few hours of sitting around the Box Office. Think I will avoid reading and go for a walk after responding to letters/postcard from sweet babies. :)

I made my first lentils tonight. Poverty was never more delicious.
