Give me lemons -
Okay, so do you remember THIS post from back in May? Mmhmm, well, it generated a lot of really sweet comments and attention, and as I realized how great it was to talk about things I loved, I also realized how little sometimes you all (who read my blog) do not know what I ... well ... what I LOVE.
Obviously, these things are things that just plain make life ... better.
Like the color YELLOW. In fact, dearest-sweet-friend-Becca made me a yellow card for my birthday, and it didn't even kick in that it was YELLOW and WHY it was yellow until ... hours later. I do have a brain, but I was distracted by the jar of bubbles she gave me. *cough*
... that and the M&M covered pretzels. be envious. be very envious. or not. :D
Anyways, back to the color yellow. If you are a chocolate lover, please buckle yourself in for a rude bump in the flight ... *bing! please fasten your seatbelts. thank you.*, because the next line might shake you up a bit.
I would rather have a lemon-y dessert than a chocolate one.
Is everyone still there? Did no one swoon? Or run into a wall? Are we still good? ok.
I just LOVE lemon and all things lemon, and I'd rather have that than chocolate.
Now don't get me wrong I LOVE chocolate. Hahahah ... my-darling-Filipino-girlie-Paulina kept up with tradition from years and years of birthdays and gave me a whole slew of 5 different candy bars, and there is one left. ONE. mmmhmm. But if I see desserts at the restaurant, I will choose the lemon ones. *happy sigh*
I think this blog post is going nowhere. Haha. :) Oh yeah! The picture!
There are several reasons that this picture makes me smile and want to down the whole jar at one sitting ....
B. It is Lemon Curd (and we all know how good that is)
C. It is "Grant's of Scotland" (product of SCOTLAND *shriek*)
D. It is made out of lemons, butter and other things.
E. It is thick and perfect and tangy and rich.
This is not my jar of Lemon Curd ... but I do have a jar of Lemon Curd, from our dearest Sadie Beth that lives across the pond ... I just had some of this Lemon Curd (in above picture) yesterday, and as I put it on my tongue ... mmm. I started talking Scottish right in the middle of this conversation. It was most distracting.
Especially since I can't pull off a Scot accent.
No matter!! :) I just had to rave about it.
Summer + Lemons + Sunshine = Yellow, and Yellow = love.
(I'm so good at math)
Your sunny friend ... most of the time, :)
