oh my darling, clementine

i bought clementines yesterday. (i just had to check myself and make sure it really was just yesterday because it feels like ages and ages ago.)

they are delicious.

they are low enough in carbs that i can eat 2 as part of my morning or afternoon snack and not break any gestational diabetes diet rules.

if i peel them while wearing my stinks, the citrus smell on my fingers and hands does a semi-decent job of masking the smell of the stinks.

i like to have fresh citrus to eat when it is white and windy and almost bitterly cold outside. (i cannot claim that it is bitterly cold because i have family in saskatchewan and friends in minnesota where it really is bitterly cold.)

here’s what it looks like out our back door today.

the neighbor’s roof has no snow because the wind has blown it away

    Looks like winter, Alyce. Pretty but cold. Hope you can stay in.

    By the way, I laughed out loud upon reading this post–the part about peeling the clementines and sort overcoming, for a moment, the power of the stinks. Still laughing. Mom
