We've got lemons......

I won REAL LEMONS  from Jenny in Arizona.  They actually grow in her yard.  I have never in all my years seen a lemon growing on a tree.  Don't get me wrong, I knew they grew on a tree, I have just never been in the right place at the right time.  She decided to give away 2 boxes of her lemons to blog readers & I was one of the winners.  They came today and Stella was with me so the first thing we did was make lemonade and the second thing was to make guacamole (my favorite food).

Thanks so much, Jenni, for this wonderful gift.  Thanks, too, for all the entertainment I get from reading your blog. 

Someone apparently moved from our neighborhood and failed to take their cat.  Stella told me that it's back has very sharp edges.  It loves Stella.  It followed her all over the yard meowing & every time she set somewhere it was right there trying to sit on her.  How can people be so heartless? 


And yes Mom, I made her go in and take a bath.

Yummy lemons! I use them every day to make salads of some sort with a drizzle of olive oil and some garlic powder. Guacamole is one of my favorites too. My husband believes that fresh lemon juice cures a headache so makes it for us with water and a bit of sugar when we aren't feeling so well. I never understand why families take in a pet and then just throw it out. It happens way too often in this country. :/ Hope you have a great rest of the weekend. Tammy

Stella looks so sweet holding that kitty, but she would look cute holding anything as she is such a doll baby! Oh lemons, how wonderful, 2 boxes??? Wow ~ well you are very good with making lemonade out of lemons ~ maybe a pie or two coming on? Blessed Sunday, blessed week Jan my dear.

Stella is way too cute!!! You have such cute grandkids. The lemons look awesome. I"ll take a lemon pie!! HA. Do you now own a cat now? I do not understand how people can be so cruel just to leave or dump a pet. Have a good week and see you soon. Linda
