Sunday Stills, Best Shots of 2012

I don't know if these are my best shots, but they are some of my favorites.
It seems that flowers and birds where the big theme this past year.
I'll see if I can't mix it up a little this coming year....... ;D

Testing Sugar

If you look on the internet, you'll fine many sophisticated 
devices to measure the amount of sugar in oranges.

Here at 5 Starr's Farm, I go pick one off the tree and eat it. 
 Seems to work just fine.....   ;D

Check out the new post on 5 Starr's Farm Premium Oranges.

Outside lights aglow, welcoming guest.
The perfect tree, lade with gifts.
One turkey, ham and prime rib, cooked to perfection.
Kitchen full of dirty dishes.
Four generations of grandparents, parents, siblings,
aunts, uncle and cousins all laughing together.
 House full of love ..... "Priceless"

Oranges are always better after the first of the year but, 
everyone wants them for Christmas.

I'll be updating the 5 Starr's Farm Premium Oranges blog 
later in the week. You can find the page/tab

Pretty Picture Monday

This Picture was taken last Tuesday before the storms hit.
Five days of rain and unbelievable wind.
I think Californians drought may be over?

All these beautiful leaves are now on the ground, along with
several branches and a few big limbs.  A lot of cleanup ahead,
but today the sun is shining, the sky is blue and you can see
across the valley to the Pacific Coast Range.

"It's a pretty Monday indeed"

Sunday Stills, Luck

I have to admit that I'm pretty superstitious.
"Thanks to the older women in my family"

I grew up with lots of old beliefs and sayings. Even now that
 I've come to understand them, it's hard to break old habits.

When I first read the challenge I didn't think I had anything to 
take a picture of.  You would think being superstitious, I would
have a "number" of lucky charms.

Then one day drive down the road, it was all to "obvious".
Oh.... I do have a luck charm.  The medicine wheel that's 
 been hanging on the sun visor in my Expedition for years.

I don't know if it brings me luck, but I like it.
