Today was a busy day.
Drove Kristy to school. Then went to Myra's to make our yearly chocolate turtles. Sooo Yummy.
Here are the guts of them. Do they still sound yummy, lol.
We put caramel and pecans inside them.
To make the caramel, we boil the can of Eagle Brand Condensed milk. We actually boil the whole can. Put on a big pot of boiling water and place the unopened can in there. Boil for 3 hours. Let the can cool down, open and its like golden sweet heaven.
Just don't let the pot go dry or the cans will explode. Just ask Myra, she has a dent in her ceiling from last year. After our chocolate making I had to take Kristy and Heather to the doctor. Nothing to worry about they are fine.
But our gas prices aren't. Holy crapola. I thought the sign was wrong, or at least I was hoping. But nope this is the price per liter. Then I went out for supper with my sister in/sister in law Darlene. I call her that because she is Wayne's sister and she married my brother. So she is my sister in law twice.
After Supper we went to see Sylvia Brown. Darlene really likes this lady and has read most of her books. I have read a few. I really enjoyed myself. Sylvia is pretty funny. She has a jewelry line that her husband designs. Made in Thailand though, they forgot a tag on one ;) Just as we were walking in to the auditorium they gave out tickets and if your number was called, you could ask her a question. Neither Darlene or I took one. I thought for sure Darlene would have. I told her I have a question, but I don't think I would want to hear the answer. I will do my give away tomorrow. I was planning on doing it today, but just ran out of time. But that just means you have one extra day :)
So what have you done today to make you feel proud.
1. Made over 300 chocolate turtles
2. Took time for me
3. Seriously can't think of any thing else, LOL
Hope your Tuesday was a creative day.
