Everything's BIGGER In Texas!!

Merry Christmas to me!!!

BingoBonnie mentioned having a bumper crop of lemons this year so I asked her if she would consider sending me a dozen. Well, today my husband and I went into town and we just got home about 30 minutes ago! I saw a box on the porch and made a comment as to it was probably my Pride and Prejudice books coming from Amazon. When I bent down to pick up the box it was really heavy so I thought there was no way it was my books. I had not ordered anything else so I wondered what it could be. There was an address on the return but no name. I did know it was Texas but I still didn't put 2 and 2 together.

Well, look here what she sent!! I think this is more like 3 dozen lemons! AND look how big these suckers are! Oh I mean lemons! hehe They REALLY do have BIGGER things in Texas!

Looks like plenty of lemonade for the holidays!!! Thank you so much Bonnie!

Good think you can freeze the juice. I love to just squeeze lemon in my water. We have Myer lemon tree and they are just so sweet now.

Truly a case of "When life (or Bonnie) hands you lemons...make lemonade!" LOL

I'm so glad that they arrived and that you are happy - I didn't even mention when they were on the way to you b/c I wanted to sorta surprise you :)

I hope you can freeze the juices b/c I know that they were REALLY ripe when I shipped. Maybe even fill up ice cube trays with juice ? so that you can have a little to add to your drink?? just an idea.

Merry Christmas to you and Butch!!! We leave tomorrow headed to KY thru the rest of the year ;)

Love from Texas! ~bonnie
