Well, I have to tell you that today I dropped off 30 pounds of pecans to be cracked. Family is coming for Thanksgiving and I thought they might get bored and need something to do - like picking out pecans.
A friend at work brought me a genuine pecan-picker-upper. Looks like one of those "What is it?" items from This Old House magazine. Another friend thought it was a potato masher. At least he gets points for creativity. It will get used for sure as I am not through with this pecan project. I just can't stand the thought of pecans being lost to the elements just because no one picked them up, especially since we have such an abundance this year. So I hope to start on my neighbor's backyard some time this week as they just had a baby and will not be spending any time back there. I thought I would have them cracked for them.
The fam arrives tomorrow and I must be off to continue the house straightening. Menu is done and groceries are mostly bought. I might even go get my Christmas tree tomorrow before they all get here. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
