Photo Challenge Day 3 – To Do List

This one was one I wanted to do but with a twist. I didn’t want it to be a chore list, or a list of all the things that needed to be crammed in to this month.   Instead I wanted it to be a list of the sweet treats that I would like to make.

I got lucky tonight and this is exactly as I took it.   No Photoshop help at all.

I am not sure how many of these I will actually get made this year, as I am back full-time for the this month and next.   It is the busiest time of the year for my employer and hence my free time gets pretty scarce.  With this list there is a starting place if I get some free time.

A Gift of Love – Homemade Goodies

One of my favorite parts of the holidays is to receive the gift of homemade candy.  I know that making and giving holiday confections is an act of love.   It takes time, lots of it.   It is expensive, groceries have never been cheap, but they have sky-rocketed in the last few years.   It takes perfect weather, no candy making unless it is a sunny day.

For many years my grandma would send me a box of candy, including her world-famous soft, white, fluffy divinity.  Friends from work would go to the post office with me to pick it up just for a piece of that divinity.

My grandmother is gone now, but my Aunt continues on in the tradition; divinity nut rolls, turtles, Fannie May fudge, maple creams and more.  She has just posted on Facebook when  she finished.  Like mother like daughter she has a list of takers for her tasty treasures.  Lucky me I am on the good list.

Thanks to my dear Aunt and my Uncle for being her trusty assistant for including me on your candy list.  The only problem is my husband expects me to share.  He only married in to this family 30 years ago.   I don’t think that qualifies a 50.50 share do you?
