Day 45: When your man cooks

TH can make one mean French Toast and its so mean because he uses little chips off the big ol' block of butter to cook the bread. No wonder it tastes great! And then he douses it in maple syrup. And like that's not enough, he sprinkles powdered sugar on top. We had strawberries too - but I don't have any pictures of that. This was actually our weekend breakfast.

Day 44: My favorite of the lot

Saving the best for the last. This was one of my most favorite pictures taken at the Citrus Ranch park. And I'm almost done posting all of my other favorites.

I love the natural curls of the leaves on here and the vibrant colors.

Day 41: Just lunch

A piping hot plate of Thai Curry Whole Wheat Pasta loaded with veggies is all I need for lunch. Its not like I'm asking for too much, right?

Day 40: Lemon Grove

I know we are Orange County - but we do have lemons here as well. They are the same family after all. And there are rows and rows of neatly planted lemon trees. You can take a walk up the hill and just smell the wonderful citrus smell.

Day 38: Why are we called Orange County?

No other better reason. Our homes actually sit on what used to be acres of orange groves. There are still many places around here that have a whole lot of beautiful orange trees. One such place is our local Katie Wheeler Library. Just walk by and this is what you see.

Day 37: Lighter than Air

Love the current display at the Apple store for their new Macbook Air. This place is perennially crowded - a lot of folks just love hanging out and playing with the latest apple gadgets!

Day 36: When goodness comes wrapped up

Just picked up a loaf of fresh Veggie Chop Bread from my fav Henry's for dinner. I walk by this all the time andthat whole place smells just so good. Had to try it today. Its so pretty with onions, red and yellow peppers and lots of green stuff that is probably spinach. The ingredients just say assorted veggies. Its so pretty I don't want to slice thru it :). All this goodness for 4 bucks!

Day 35: You call me Crazy. I call myself Colorful.

Day 32: My backyard visitor

Place: Backyard

Every morning I find a few hummingbirds visiting our backyard. And I've tried many times to capture them on picture - its a tough one - by the time I adjust the zoom, they are up and away. Wish they would listen to me and stay and pose! But got this little guy for a couple of seconds!

Day 30: Black Sheep of the family

Place: Citrus Ranch Park

Found a lemon tree full of pretty green lemons and found this one little guy so unlike the others. This one just rot right in place. Almost feel sad for it.

Day 29: Does that look like a smile?

Have you ever wondered why clock and watch ads anywhere in the world show them preset at 10:10?

Well, one of the theories is that the company logo would get displayed in between both the hands perfectly forming a frame. And it would also look like a smile. :)
Maybe because originally the standard used to be 8:20 and somehow that created a frown!

To be exact, the industry standard now is that the time should be 10:09:36
