1-26-18-2A tree of only 6 little oranges needed to be picked.  So I made Orange Chicken with the juice. Pretty tasty since I have never made it before.  I googled the recipe and replaced a few ingredients here and there, but all in all turned out pretty good.

1-26-18-9Holiday decorations came down at the Grateful SHE’d this week and new cups replaced the Christmas cups hanging in the window.

1-24-18-7For most of this week,  it was mulch and debris chores so the truck got filled and we went to recycle the chippings into wood mulch.  A couple of trips more and one portion of the property will be done until Summer….again.  That’s how it rolls around here.  Over and over and over again.

1-26-18-12It sprinkled one day and this leaf popped out at me.  It had a pretty winter-look about it. This was taken with the new 85mm.

1-26-18-14Then there is the flower. Lantana. It grows all over the place here.  It not only helps the hillsides stay a bit stable it makes the bees happy too.

Such is the 4th week of 365 Days.  The WP photo challenge, variations of a theme, has, again, my little twist on it.  Instead of being forced to stifle myself for just one theme of “variations” I posted “variations” on the use of my daily photographing.

Thanks for stopping in.

Til next time…
