Peanut Brittle...

Yesterday, a bunch of us went to a rather famous candy making place, up in one of the mountain passes near here. One of the employee's/part owner is in AA. He set up the whole thing. We went up after the place was closed and we learned to make peanut brittle! I got elbow deep in corn syrup. In total we made 28 pounds of it, and all who helped got two large bags of it. After the candy making, we gathered outside on the lawn along the river to have an AA meeting. The valley there is very rugged terrain, covered with pines and other trees. We sat next to a wide, calm part of the river. With the salmon running, often during the meeting I could hear the loud splash of a salmon jumping. The topic was gratitude. I was in my element. I have been to AA meetings all up and down the west coast. This one was truly the most beautiful one I have ever been to. Or is it because I may be seeing things differently? I don't care what it is. Whatever it is, I'm gonna roll with it. It's nearly better that four hours of hot, sweaty..."nevermind."

A great setting for a meeting.
Especially, with 2 bags of peanut brittle sitting next to you.

28 POUNDS, oh my goodness. That calls for a whole lotta water to wash that down.

A meeting in nature, talk about connecting. Have a great weekend! Be safe, be sober :)

Kel, I have been told "We can only keep what we have by giving it away." You are in my prayers.
