I'm Back Again

Hello Everyone!

     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!  

Also made, around Valentine's  Day,  old fashioned Golumbkies.  Or stuffed cabbage,  as it is better known.  

And some cupcakes, too!  The guys loved them.  Of course, so did I.  

So that's what I have been up to.  How 'bout you??  

See you ..........Later, but not so much later, tho!   XXOO. JO
