I have a confession to make. When I purchased my Singer sewing machine in December, I received a coupon for a year’s free subscription to Martha Stewart Living magazine. I received my first one yesterday … and I love it. I can’t believe it! Did the pod people get me and I didn’t notice? Well, it may be true because look what I did last night:
I made candy.
Can you believe that? I sort of can’t. Actually the recipe was incredibly simple and the candy was just so pretty when I saw it here that I knew it was the perfect thing to try my new candy thermometer on. (I actually bought the thermometer so I could finally make a decent batch of fudge.)
So tell me, did the pod people get me? Actually, after glancing into the corners of my kitchen – which aren’t really corners any more because of the debris that’s built up in them – I guess I’m still the same ol’ Barbara. But maybe Martha will improve & enhance the original recipe and I’ll become the New & Improved Barbara.
Now if I can stop being silly for a moment, I’ll tell you that I started on Arden’s new bed right after breakfast this morning and made pretty good progress. I got one end board (head or foot? I don’t know) completely done, one side board ocmpletely done, and the other side board very nearly done. Woohoo for me!
