Today is a big day for me…I am putting myself through a big test…cannot think of anything to write about…have written about my laundry, my meals, my birthday, my recycling bin, my hair, my lovely daughter, my friends, my karma, my moods, my toilets, wow! Is there anything left to talk about?
Well, the universe is always providing. Look around and there is always something to talk about. Let’s see…after watching the world’s headlines news, I decided to write about a lemon.
This real lemon was in a little basket right around where I pick up my mail. A nice person had picked some lemons from a tree around our gardens and put them there for the taking. I think I am using it on my salad. What kind of lemon do you think is going to be? A good lemon, a bad lemon…one thing for sure, it is a real lemon. I have a lot of pretend fruits and veggies throughout the condo, but real are the bananas, lettuce, carrots, onions, sweet potatoes, and only God knows where these arrived from. Most of them are in the fridge, but my only and unique lemon came from right around the building.
Yes!!!! something from Florida…well, now that I think about it, I had an avocado recently and it was from Florida, USA. Buy local…if you can.
I also had a very nice surprise today while shopping at the big W box, there was an ornament that I liked, and when I turned the packaging around, guess what! Made in USA. I was so happy I almost kissed the employee in that department.
So going back to the lemon, I guess I am delighted in having such a down home fruit. It is going to be useful, Vitamin C, and it will make my salad taste good.
I have passed the test! Three hundred fifty-five words. I do not know how you feel about this posting, but silence is golden. Keep that in mind. You can opine if you feel like it, that will be lovely also.
So…it was today…25 October, 2011…a day that went to the lemon.
Your Happy Contessa
