I’ve never been much of a fall person because it always meant winter was around the corner. And with winter comes snow and ice, shoes instead of flip flops, and all whole smorgasbord of stuff I don’t like but equals misery for me. With a sense of winter dread looming around, I’ve always bypassed the cool things I equate with fall that I really do enjoy. This year I’ve decided to post those things in what I’m calling For the Love of Fall (this may end up being my only post) and to kick it off…drum roll please…Caramel Apples!!
Today, for my first time, I made caramel apples.
Turns out they’re a little trickier than I thought they would be and the first couple have WAY too much caramel on them. Oops. But it got a little better and while they may not be the prettiest every made, I’ll bet they taste just good as any other. Let the love of fall commence!
I had my one year blogiversary about a week ago or was it two? I kept meaning to write something but got busy and distracted and never did. So finally I’m getting around to it – cheers to me! And while we’re on the subject of anniversaries, today is my third official year of working for the company where I’m at. I was hired on Halloween and I’m still not sure if it has turned out to be a trick or a treat yet. I don’t write much about work becuase one, no one really cares what I do, and two I don’t want someone to find this and get me fired for something I may say. Although, we are closing down in a couple of months so maybe it’s all fair game now….
Well since I’m on the subject of work, I was trying to hurry and get some of the orders out of here ASAP so I could have time to do some blogging and in my hurry this is what happened:
We put all the orders in plastic totes and the sides are sharp little suckers. This happens frequently and it’s a wonder I have an arm left at all.
Meanwhile, every year the company I work for gives us carmel apples for Halloween. This is never a treat that I think about but or even crave but when handed to me the yummy goodness all comes back. Good thing I have floss in my car too!:
Since it’s Halloween there are a lot of employees who are dressed up but I just didn’t feel like it this year. Instead I wore my scrubs that dub as my pajama bottoms and lounge pants. They’re pretty much the most awesome pants I’ve ever had. And since they’re bright orange I figured no one would really mind. I’ve been told they look like inmate pants and I’m tempted to have Wentworth put across the butt of them. For those of you who don’t know, Wentworth Miller is the actor in Prison Break. Here they are (sorry about the angle and shot but it’s hard to take a pic of your own pants):
And since I didn’t bother getting dressed today I decided I wouldn’t bother with my hair either:
Only two hours left until I leave for home and I hope I can make it! Hope everyone is having a Happy Halloween!
