I need to start getting out Christmas and getting rid of fall. And I feel a sense of panic after the lovely Christmas kitchen tour I went on yesterday. This morning I have two hours before work to make a difference. So I have this cob of popcorn to dekernel. My friend grew it for me so throwing it out is not an option. Boy does that slow things down and ruin nails. But my observation is that long ago when this was the way to get popcorn life was slower and time spent doing this was OK. This holiday season I'm putting a little slow into the mix.
