Turning your Oranges into Lemons!

There is nothing more refreshing than a sweet cold orange on a hot summer day. But what does one do when that bag of oranges turns out to be too sour? Turn them into lemons!

The next time your bag is sour, slice and freeze for that cool glass of water, or serve with sun tea!

I *love* this idea! Will have to try it if it happens here.

I thought maybe you made lemon-aid with them and called it orange-aid. I am always so dissapointed when the oranges are sour; it's such a let down!

What a neat idea.. when I lived in CA I had a tree that was a cross between lemons and oranges and it made the best lemonade.

@ Patty:

Since I specifically buy lemons and limes for our water and tea here, I decided to use oranges that are too sour to eat. We were disappointed our bag made us pucker, but then I thought about how they are just as good as lemons! My iced tea is now so yummy!

I love reading your blog. I check it out all the time hoping for new posts!

I hope you don’t mind --- I’ve been telling all my friends about your blog.

I printed 100 free business cards with my 10 favorite websites (yours was #1!!) and handed them out at our last Mommy Meet-up.

It made me wonder if you had ever done that for yourself? Do you ever meet anyone at a coffeeshop or a playground and start talking about blogging? Maybe you could print up some cards to hand out. Just an idea!

In return for inspiring me, I wanted to pass on these money saving tips to you:
-- 100 Free business cards at

In case you decide to get something else printed from them (besides the FREE business cards!) I also wanted to tell you about their unlimited use promo code - it never expires and you can use it again and again:
-- 10% off promo code “RTPS10”

FYI: I’ve used this company to print fliers and signs for Church events and even yard sales. The quality is really good compared to what I’ve gotten from VistaPrint and others that offer FREE business cards.

I hope you have a great week. I’ll be checking back soon. Bye!
