Every year we host an annual Harvest Day at our Home. This is such a beautiful time of year in Upstate New York. This is a formal invitation to all of my blogging friends to join us next year!
Perhaps you can get an idea from my pics today some of the fun we had!
ALSO— I am going to share my frequently requested CARAMEL CORN recipe. It is super easy,, and wonderfully delectable! I would make you some personally, but I don’t want to “rob” you of this “harvesty tradition!”
Let me know how you like it! We have been making this recipe for 21 years! Phew– Did that just give my age away?
Soo, before I post my Harvest Pics and Share my recipe,, please tell me this:
Have you ever:
*Told your child while you were driving down the road, that if they didn’t stop misbehaving they would have to go their room? ( Uhhh.. Mommy, we are in the car???)
*Your little one didn’t want the rest of their cookie and so while pushing them in the cart at the store, and you have no place to discard the already in the mouth piece of food, you decide the best solution would be for you to finish it off? ( baby saliva and all!)
*Paid someone to do your ironing?- yep, I did just say that!
Ok.. Moving on, I guess. But, hey, IF you have done, said, or thought these things, let me know that I am not alone! Heehee… Or maybe this is something that I don’t want to know!!
