when i was looking around my parents' kitchen for today's photo project...i spotted a bowl of pecans and the nutcrackers. the silver one in the background reminds me of the type we had when i was growing up. i don't know when they acquired the fancy-looking one on the right...as i'd never seen it before. my parents have acquired some pretty neat gadgets...and i must explore more often.
i love pecans! i prefer them to look like the ones in the photo...instead of the pretty shiny ones in the stores during the holidays.
when i was growing up...my grandfather would send us a box of them every october. he would go into his backyard...and gather them to ship to us. my brother and i always looked forward to receiving it.
when i was in georgia earlier this year...and i was out with one of my cousins...i purchased a bag of pecans and brought them back to california with me.
when i see them...in a bowl on my desk...nutcracker resting next to it...it takes me back to that time...long ago.
