Dad Jetpacks Into the 21st Century

My sister and BIL game my dad a digital camera for Christmas this year. NIIIIICE camera too. I can’t wait to see how they put it to use. I should set up a website for him, but I’m sure it would just add to MY workload. Ya Dad, if you’re reading this, I’m talking about you!

Candied Pecans

I made candied pecans this morning. I don’t even know if they’re good or not. I think the pecans might be a little on the old side, and I’m wondering if that would affect the flavor of them. Or make the mushy. Because I expected the nuts themselves to be a bit crunchier then they are. Other than that, they’re pretty tasty. I may have to try this same recipe with other types of nuts.

Shopping? Not Really

I don’t think what I’ve been doing counts as shopping. See, I’ve been looking at some of the add-on kits for the Imaginext Battle Castle Santa brought us. Apparently you can only get these sets in Europe and Australia, even though the box came with an insert with pictures of all these products. And the pictures are also on the Fisher-Price website. But I cannot find any ANYWHERE online. And the FP customer service person was oh-so-helpful. So I’ve spend the afternoon searching for them. That doesn’t count as shopping, does it?

Snow Thank You

Jeebus, what’s with all the white stuff? Is it too much to ask that we not get more than 4-5 inches of snow at a time, and make it that fluffy stuff please? Got up this morning and had to get rid of a driveway full of snow. It’s dambed windy out there so you get the joy of some of the snow blowing back into your face as you snowblow and/or shovel. I hate when that happens.

I can’t tell you exactly how much we got because it drifted all night. Some spots were up to my knees, and there was one area where you could almost see grass. Very odd. According to the only reports I could find, we got about a foot. That seems about right. And most of it dropped in a single hour.
