My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..
So I am making carmels from the Mary Jane recipe, I hear this really loud twittering & chirping outside my kitchen window, of course I can't see what's going on, I can't leave the candy boiling because its nearly up to temp. Finally get it poured into the pan to cool. I walk over to the window with a spoon full of Hot carmel, blowing on it to cool it enough to taste..( well I had to see if it would make the grade) Of course it is does, it's delicious! I look outside and there are about 15 birdies: sparrows, house wrens, a starling & a pretty blue scrub jay all battling over the seed feeder. Now I am thinking.. " it is a beautiful day today, can't these birdies find their own food?" That's a silly comment. They have found their own food at my window. No wonder we go through so much bird seed daily. I will take a picture.. and of course they fly away, only to return shortly a few at a time. I tiptoe to the window to get this photo. They are pretty and I would miss them if they were not here.
The carmels are almost ready to cut and wrap, but I must take a photo of them too. (just in case, They don't make it to the holiday gift packs, I will have documentation of my efforts.) Now where is that recipe for fudge? I figure I will share the seeds & candy in the "spirit of giving". Enjoy your seeds, little birdies..and you know what? This candy is gooood!
