Blood Oranges and Nursing School

I received a few messages asking if I was still alive in blogger land.

Yes dear friends. I am here. But, I started Nursing school. It is a lot of work. It is a hybrid class, so I am only at the school two days per week, but I spend the rest of my time working on interactive study sites and with my head buried in hugely thick books. A friend of mine said that I was a caged butterfly. That is just how I feel. Truly, though I can see that; before you know it, this time will be behind me. I still feel sorry for myself. Poor Donna:) Don’t give in to me and feel sorry for me though, I will have fun with the new people that I meet at school. It is just that I would rather be doing work around here.

Spring break s next week, so stay tuned as I clean out my freezers. Yikes! Now that is a scary topic!

When I decide to plant another (some) orange tree(s), I will make sure to plant a Blood Orange.

See the difference?

See the difference?

Though they are not as easy as a navel to peel; they are beautiful, they are sweet and they are different. I like different!

A dear friend of mine gave me a bag of them. Steve and I ate several, then I juiced them.

Into the freezer they go with the Valencia juice that I squeezed.

By the way, orange peels are not great for the compost pile, but the chickens and goats love to eat the left over pulp out of them. Then I pick the remainder up after a couple of days, because they just get hard and look a bit trashy.

So, I will go back to my flash cards now. Ta ta!
