Slow, slow spring

It's one of those periods. We all have them. Seems every time I get a spare moment, the weather goes bad and I have to stay inside. Look at these gorgeous daffodils -- why are they staring at the ground? Because the frost was so heavy it pulled them all over. By the time the day warmed I was at work.

Today was another example. My first absolutely full day off -- no work obligations at all -- and it's been barely 40 degrees and pissing with rain. I had plenty of inside things to do, but I want to be outside building raised beds and pulling mulch and making space for new chicks! My next days off, Saturday and Sunday, have gray clouds on the 7 day outlook.

Luckily, one of the things I found to do instead is make caramel corn! Delicious! Can't make a full recipe because I could easily eat it all, but it cuts down easily and with a good show on tv, you can't beat it! I like to close on a cheery note!

I like to have my caramel corn while listening to the show "Harbor County Inspired" on the public radio. Let it rain!

Hope you were able to enjoy the sunshine on Saturday. Care to share your caramel corn recipe? Sounds delish.
