Just Walking Around
I was looking out the window and I saw that my Camilla
bush is looking a little weather worn. So I thought I need a few
pictures to remember it by, so this summer when I am wanting
to pull it out and just put in grass and not have flower beds.
The sun came out today. I feel like celebrating because I know in the morning
there is a good possibility it will be fog. I just had to take a picture of it.
As I walked in the cold, and I could hear the Meadowlarks singing.
I am transported back to being a child and listening to the meadowlarks
and looking all around me at the dream that was my life.
I stopped and listened
and wished I could walk to find where it is singing up the morning. As I walked
to the back of that pasture, behind me is a garage where a man builds race cars.
All of the big car transports are all gone and sitting on all of the cars in the sunshine
were cats. Sitting in the sun watching me as I passed. They must have been strays but
now they have found a home and they all looked pretty well taken care of, I was
I stopped at the orange trees and picked oranges.
I didn't know that we had two blood orange trees.
I do wish they could have named them a nice name, I mean
there is ruby red grapefruit, blood oranges just sounds so yukky.
This year, the oranges and lemons are the best crop we have ever
had. I cut some open so you could see them. (I wish I could mail you some.)
The regular oranges are just the navel orange tree,
and the dark ones are the blood oranges. My son says
that when he eats them at work, everyone leaves as they
As I was cutting these my hands were stained pink.
This is a close up.
This is going to sound like a commercial and I don't mean it too,
but here it goes. Since Weight Watchers changed it's program,
you can eat fruit and vegetables and they have no points. I mean
really when was the last time you sat and watched T.V. and ate a head
of lettuce? This is my second week and it has taken me that long to get
sugar out of my system, so that now I am willing to eat fruit and vegetables
and not reach for cookies. But the no point things has helped me so much and
that they raised the points you can eat every day. I am a really happy camper.
In the winter all I remember about trying to be on Weight Watchers is freezing and
starving as I tried to live on 20 points a day. That was exercising a hour a day plus my
other work I do all day. It is no wonder why I would give up.
But now I am not hungry and I have a energy usually by this time I would be wanting to
sleep all of the time.
I don't feel deprived which is nice. This is not a endorsement it is just something
I have noticed in these last few weeks.
I know my friends on the East Coast are having a big snow storm. You have been in
my thoughts and prayers. My prayers are for your power to stay on and pray you are safe.
I really would enjoy my sunshine more if I could send you some.
Would you settle for a hug? O
Wishing you lots of sunshine on the way,
