Pecan Day

The kids and I took 1/4 of our pecan load down to Wilson's feed store today. Quaid loves this old machine so I let him take the photo's today. My two glaze bucket loads weighed 54lbs ! We have four more buckets to bring down there but I only have my mom's freezer and ours to house them all so I think I'm going to have to make a few trips this year to get them all shelled.
The rest of the day was spent teaching in Charlotte. Tomorrow I'm taking the kids to the zoo and then in the evening I will start glazing for my show coming up at Buffalo Creek Gallery.
I'll have to get back to those covered jars maybe this weekend.

Oh I love pecans; what great fun to take them to a shelling machine. When I lived in the south we shelled ours by hand, but our tree only had a few. I bet they taste so good. The ones in a can have no flavor at all.
