Perfect Holiday Gift!
So, today is a cleaning day...ugh! I am avoiding it, but it really needs to be done. I had intentions to do it yesterday, but my morning was immediately interrupted when I woke up to find my girl kitty (who has a broken leg from Thanksgiving) had removed her cast some time during the middle of the night. This sent me directly to the vet...that was closed, to then go to another vet that was so nice to help me out! This saved me time (from the emergency vet) and money! Unfortunately, with a lack of coffee and fuel to start the day, I did not get coffee or oatmeal until 11am. When I got back, I restarted my day with my butt on the couch to enjoy my daily coffee and pretend that my Saturday was just beginning. Unfortunately, the clock does not roll back! Oh well, it was not a bad day, just a strange day.
I needed to go to the store for a few things (my usual fruits and veggie), but luckily I have a huge stash of fresh citrus fruit to enjoy thanks to my parents! The case of fresh citrus fruit is a traditional gift that my grandparents used to send my parents every year. They lived in Florida and seriously, what better gift can you send from Florida? I love this tradition and I hope my parents keep it up! If you are ever wondering what to get someone that loves fresh fruits and is a boat load (or box) of fruits and veggies! My diet is mostly raw fruits and vegetables, so this was such a nice surprise when I received it a week before Christmas! Here it is, the first part of January and I am still enjoying every bit of it...the gift that keeps on giving! Now, with tons of oranges, tangerines and grapefruits...I need to work on some recipes with citrus fruits. Besides, all this vitamin C should help keep the rest of us from getting whatever funk the illustrator has been suffering from!

After I clean the house...I am back in the kitchen! Thanks Mom and Dad!
