For many years we have done Random Acts of Kindness blog posts in December, and we’re ready for that again! We know you all do many nice things year-round for people around you. We know this because we hear about it! But our RAK blog posts in December are a way to share some ideas with everyone else. To encourage you to share, we’ll be drawing one name from the RAK reporting posts today and next Friday, and will be sending the winner a sweet Blue Sky Alpaca Kit as a thank you. We get these kits in at Christmas time and we love them. Quick for knitting up speedy gifts.
Be intentional about your kindness this month and come back to today’s blog post to share what you were able to do. We’ll take reports on today’s post and then again on next Friday’s post. I hope you post both days! Need some quick ideas? Shovel a neighbor’s walk, pay for the car behind you in the Starbucks drive through, clean the snow off a co-worker’s car in the parking lot, leave a sweet treat on someone’s desk or porch, write an appreciation letter to a past teacher, buy a present for an Angel Tree, offer to run an errand for someone, donate clothes to a charity or homeless center, etc. We always love reading about what you’ve have been doing!
I tried a new recipe this week from my sweet friend Susan in Alabama. SO quick and easy, and if you pop this into a jar with a ribbon around the top, they make great gifts for friends!
1 lb. pecans
3 Tbl. butter (original recipe calls for 4 Tbl but Susan uses slightly less)
1 Tbl. seasoned salt (like Lawry’s)
Add all ingredients to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 4 minutes. Stir well and then turn out on a cookie sheet to dry. Enjoy for snacking!
