Coconuts

I am messy.

While in the midst of a project, I am messy.

If I am “gardening” by the time its done I am covered in dirt. It’s in my hair, all over my jeans, inside my gloves, in my shoes, everywhere.

I try so hard to be neat because I hate to clean. But to no avail. In the midst of a project, I am messy. I say this to explain why you will never see pictures during a project. Which is too bad because over the weekend my darling husband and I had a very fun time with coconuts.

We had never cracked a coconut before so it was all very new and exciting. Dh loves all thing tropical and coconut tops that list. While we worked not knowing what we did, we had bits and pieces of coconut EVERYWHERE!  But boy did we have fun. After we had the meat out I made Coconut Caramel Jam from The Joy of Jams, Jellies, and Other Sweet Preserves, by Linda Ziedrich which was the plan.

The surprise was the fun and clever project that Dh came up with.  How cute is this.

Now the question is what to do with the other one.
