The transformation is amazing.
Trees stretch and are finally able to do so without breaking dry, brittle branches.
Flowers bloom and fill in the gaps of what is normally a brown dusty backdrop.
The wind blows and there’s just a ting of moisture moving through the cool air.
Yellow grass catches morning dew and holds onto it for dear life.
Children play like they're on vacation.
Every morning, I pick an orange from the backyard tree. It quenches my thirst like nothing else. I don’t know why
I have a lemon tree that reminds me of an over-active dog.
It’s just so happy to be alive.
It produces more lemons then I ever know what to do with.
Last year, it broke a major branch. Why?
Because it couldn’t carry the weight of its fruit.
This year it’s threatening to do the same thing.
Do you ever feel like this?
Overworked and under-picked?
Or maybe just over-picked.
I’m using the lemons as fast as I can.
The kids get home from school and we make lemon-aide icees.
Here’s the recipe.
Squeeze the juice of three lemons (by the way, I paid $3.00 at a yard sale for this retro super sweet juicer).
Pour lemon juice into your blender.
Add ½ a cup of sugar (more if you like it sweeter).
Add 4 frozen strawberries.
Fill the blender with ice, then add water to the top.
Blend until smooth.
Share with all, and be prepared to make another within a few minutes.
Like the lemon tree, my EBay sales have been lively and abundant.
Here are my top EBAY sales of the week.
Abercrombie & Fitch! You rock and this week, these Women's size 12 lowrise flare jeans sold for $31.00.
Gap Overalls, my unpredictable friend. Does it make a difference if you are XL. I think so. This week, you sold for $25.49 Way to go!
Men's Ralph Lauren Jeans. Waist 46, length 30. Sometimes these hard to find sizes sell really well. At $20.49, the seller and buyer both have a great deal.
Banana Republic, Size 10 NWT $79 Pants, you never looked so good. $14.99 is a great profit for me and an even better price for the lucky buyer.
