December 27, 2009

Really hit the spot.
I've been needing a good old Disney movie.
And it was just wonderful.
(To think some people wonder why I go to kids movies).

I imagine I'll be getting the DVD soon as it comes out.

Before I get any feedback from this one let me say this.
Christmas, for the most part, was fine.
But when I sat down to do the journal comic, and thought about what stood out most this week, this popped up.

Lately, I just haven't been handling things the way I wish I could.
I'm sure many of you can relate.

And honestly, I don't like to bringing up low points in the comic.
I even went back through the archives to see if I had done it before.
I haven't.
So this is a first.

Don't worry, it won't last long.

Took me forever to get that tree to light up properly.
And even now there's a small section of it that's being difficult.

I've turned the tree so that the troublesome spot faces the wall.

Truly it was.
I have absolutely no explanation for how that batch turned out so well.
But I am so very very thankful for it.

December 16, 2009

I am so tired of caramels
So, so tired.

December 15, 2009

I missed a deadline!
A thousand apologies to you all.

Setting caramels takes about two hours if you're lucky.
One if you cheat and use the freezer.
(Like me).

So, if I had time, I could shop.
But I don't, so I haven't, and now I am screwed.

But that's only until the wrapping stage.
I rock the wrapping stage.

It sets like that.
So you have to hop to it.
Just don't burn yourself in the process.
Then nothing gets done.

...and another change in format.
It equals more posts, but better chronological organization.
So yeah.

The stirring is never done.

November 30-December 2, 2009

Oh yeah.
I am a caramel making machine.
It takes some psyching up to get to that point though.
I wish I really had merry xmas sweatbands.
That would rock.

I am not kidding.
We're only a week into December and the grocery stores are already turning up sparse in the Karo corn syrup department.

I have 15 more batches of caramels needs making.
They better get more.

Lots and lots of stirring.
