Living an Attitude of Gratitude

Day 1,002

Today I am thankful:

For unexpected rain.

For our little patch of grass that’s growing like crazy with all the rain we’ve had.

Because the oranges on our tree are huge and are starting to change color.

  1. How exciting to be able to just step outside and pick your own oranges! My hubby would love that so much!

  2. Oh, yum Oranges are my favorite. Have you ever tried the Cara Cara varity? They’re seedless, a cross between pink grapefuit and orange, and sweet as can be. They’re wonderful, and I’ve been waiting for this year’s crop. Maybe soon!

      • I got a message that it’s a “HIgh risk” website with a Trojan.

      • Huh. I didn’t get that. No matter — here’s what the site said:

        “A Cara Cara Orange is also called a Red Navel Orange. This citrus fruit variety has a dark orange-red interior fruit color, and is very sweet with generally a very low acid content.

        Cara Cara oranges are typically harvested from Venezuela during the months of October to January. They are medium-sized, round, with ten to twelve interior orange segments and very few seeds.

        It’s quite easy to understand why a Cara Cara Orange is considered to be one of the best eating oranges in the world–just like their cousin, the Navel Orange.

        On the outside, a Cara Cara orange has a skin color that is more yellow than orange, with a rich, red pulp inside. They make a wonderful accent to any dish and recipe, and especially to fresh salads.”

      • I just searched for them, and they look like what are marketed here as blood oranges.

    • I have no idea what variety these are. And I’ve never even seen Cara Cara. I’ll have to look for it.

  3. I see you swimming in rain and oranges!😃
