aw, shucks

Spent a couple of hours tonight shucking corn.

 

Wish that it had looked this good.  We were sorting corn for Second Harvest Food Bank.  Digging through huge bins of corn and tossing the bad ears, and separating out the good ears.  You had to go through most of the shucking to figure out if the corn was good or bad .. it was interesting.  I've done some different things at food banks; this was the first time handling fresh produce.  Previously it's just been cans.  We packed a ton of corn, literally. 

I think I'm coming down with a cold.  We'll have to see if it really gets me or not.

No real sewing done today.  I hemmed some curtains and did a really bad job.  I need to re-do them.  Maybe this weekend.  I'm hoping for a calm working around the house weekend.  wonder what I'll really have.

A friend of mine scoped out the possible ornaments at Michael's but didn't find any.  I'll have to see if I can find some online (she sent me one link which I will probably end up using ...).

I love shucking corn ...its quite relaxing. Im not sure I;d think it was quite so much fun after doing a ton of it though!

Sending all my good thoughts your way for the weekend you want!

It's been a long time since I've shucked corn.

Hope you've got ahead of that cold and are feeling better.
