Lemons From Jenny

Would you just look at this basket full of happy lemony sunshine! 

Jenny must have had extras from her lemon giveaway last week,
 because these arrived on my doorstep today, 
with a note to pucker up and enjoy!

You betcha!!

Yes, an entire box full of lemons! 
They're bigger than my hand!

I love anything having to do with lemons:
Lemon pie, lemon bars, lemonade, lemon curd and lemon tea.
I clean my garbage disposal with lemon peel. 
I swear that smelling a lemon makes me feel happy.
Golly, just looking at a lemon makes me happy.

Jenny, thank you so much!
 You really could not have sent these to a more appreciative lemon-enthusiast.

I'm getting ready to make fresh squeezed lemonade right now, so c'mon over.

And for dinner we might be having
lemon chicken,
with lemon dressing on our salad, 
and lemon zest on our green beans,
and lemon cake
with lemon glaze,
and lemon....

PS- And a sweet little 2 year old gave me the daffodils this morning! Two beautiful yellow surprises in one day.    Life is good.

    Now I was here earlier, but I scrolled down and got wrapped up in the covered bridges. Coming from Canada I was wondering where ours were. Well then I just went on and on and on.

    Ok must watch a movie now, wish I had that one on hand, but then it always made me reflect.
    Love Claudie
