Oranges and Lemons
The lemons and the oranges are starting to get ripe.
I am so glad, but the way the kids want to eat them
I am hoping they last long enough to get really ripe.
My son went out with a flash light
and brought in oranges and lemons. The blood oranges
are barely pink.
The lemon tree we have is a Meyer Lemon. Bar none
the best lemon ever. The longer it stays on the tree the
more juice it produces and the skin is so thin. One of the
things my kids do is pick lemons and drink fresh lemon-aid.
All winter. There will be a pitcher of it in the fridge.
Tonight though it is because the whole house is coming down
with my cold. The-Whole-House.
This is not the week for me to have got everyone sick. It is the week
before finals for the kids. My husband is in the middle of a two year
project that is due Friday.
Don't you wish you could schedule being sick? Tell your body,
okay, here is my schedule for the next few weeks, I think I can fit being
sick here to here.
Mondays are just Mondays sometimes. I am glad
though that this too shall pass.
I am glad for lemon trees and orange trees. Just looking at
them make me feel happy.
Blessings to you,
