I am back after a rather long period of time, and I can't really tell you why! I guess I just needed a break, and to be honest, the holidays were not that great for me this year. Oh, I sent out gifts for the grandkids and family back East, but i didn't do much more. I don't know why, I just couldn't get into it this year, and that is VERY unusual for me. I didn't knit or crochet much, either, which is again unusual. But I have gotten back to that somewhat.
Right now, the oranges on our trees are plenty, so I have to make orange juice and get it into the freezer. I add grapefruit juice to it also, as I have lots of those, also.
Also, making an apple pie (I have a craving), and chicken noodle soup! What can I say, I was in the mood for cooking. It is a mood for me that I am in a lot. Cooking mood. And I like it. I'm basically a homebody. Anyway, it'll be good to get a stock of orange juice built up, too. If I can get enough, it'll last a few months. And it is so nice to have our own juice from our own oranges. What a difference in taste!
