Been a busy mama the last few months....Nutcracker consumes all of my fall months each weekend and in December the first two weeks it is crazy with rehearsals and getting reading for the curtain to be drawn. It has been an amazing weekend and one tired mama!

Happy Labor Day

I'm back....been traveling so much with work and never having anytime anymore. I changed jobs and went to work for the state as a Foster Care Placement Manager. I am loving my new job. 
Grabbed it off of Pinterst and thought I would share.

Will's Crockpot Sugared Pecans or Walnuts

An easy Fall recipe for snack or to take to a party....
Spiced pecans or walnuts, from the slow cooker. Sugared pecan recipe with cinnamon and spices, or use walnuts.


  • 16 ounces pecans or walnut halves
  • 1/2 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger


Turn slow cooker to HIGH about 15 minutes in advance. In hot slow cooker, stir together the nuts and butter. Add the powdered sugar, stirring to blend and coat evenly. Cover and cook on HIGH for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to LOW and remove lid; cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for about 2 to 3 hours, or until the nuts are coated with a crisp glaze.
Transfer the nuts to a bowl.
In another small bowl, combine the spices; sift over the nuts, stirring to coat evenly.
Let cool before serving.
I have a bunch in my freezer so this is what I am going to do tomorrow since it will be a raining holiday in the south. Enjoy!

My son has enjoyed lots of pool time with friends since being out of school. He just registered for freshman fall classes which will start in a few weeks....mine is the one on top.

also my oldest granddaughter has been having some fun this summer also. I don't see how they can play ball in the deep south with the conditions we have been having. This was a few weeks ago when they won the State Recreation Department for 10yr old. They have been going each year and they keep bringing home the title...so proud of my Hailey! She is an awesome player and will start middle school this fall. I am sure this gimmie will be seating out in the stands at the school watching her excel in her favorite game. She is also on a traveling team and they are up in ATL this weekend playing. I sat out of this one cause the heat index was to high for this ole woman. lol

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and try to stay cool. I know from what I have been reading the Midwest folks are not so use to these temps.

What are you doing to stay cool? I am staying indoors as much as possible!

Joining in at Rhoda's for her Thrifty Treasures. Check it out, she has been doing this for the last few years and she always shares some great post of neat yard sale items or freebies which with the economy that is the best deal!

 recently we went to the mountains to pick up this camper from my parents house.....my dad has had it in the backyard sitting for years and not even using it...he gets those urges where he will buy something and think he will use it but mama says her camping days are over....it's hotel days now so after sitting for so long I brought it home....just has to be fixed up a bit....and it was FREE...not a bad deal.

 yard sale deal....10 bucks and still in box....I just saw these at Belks a few months ago so not a bad deal if you say so
started a new job so have not been on the computer much lately and the snake on the last post was in vidalia, ga...it was a friend of mine who sent me the picture because it was their friend...so not much details about it but the location...looks like a rattlesnake and someone shot it....it can stay over in that county anyway
