We got a really late start on Sunday morning (12/16), but Cookie still enjoyed sitting in the sun (her favorite morning activity) until it disappeared:
Michael ran to the store to get me some popcorn kernels, then spent a bit of time on the phone talking to COMPORIUM as we weren’t getting any channels on the TV! He got that fixed in time to get dressed and head out to the golf course for a little practice.
I spent a lot of time in the kitchen, getting 2 runs of caramel corn completed:
|I pop popcorn in the air popper|
|add in dry roasted peanuts|
|then make the butter/sugar coating and cook it on the stovetop|
|pouring it over all of the popcorn & nuts|
|stir, stir, stir, then it gets baked for an hour, stirring every 15 minutes|
|until finally it gets spread out to cool down before being scooped into bags|
By then it was mid-afternoon and all of our furry kids headed out to the lanair to lay in the sun:
I sat and read for a bit after that, but when Michael left at 4:30 for another play tryout, I finally headed downstairs to continue sewing on my latest quilt:
He got home just after 7 PM (they won’t know until maybe Wednesday if he got cast), bringing us each a piece of pizza and a rotisserie chicken. I got the chicken picked and the carcass in the crockpot after which we ate our pizza, watched TV and braided a bit.
True to form, Michael's Christmas cactii are starting to bloom:
