I am the only one eating oranges at our house right now, so I got a bit concerned they'd go bad before I got to them. Then I remembered we had brought our citrus juicer from the States (a garage sale find as you can see!). It works great on a converter thankfully.

Quite a great reminder after days of intermittent rain (but thankfully not too cold!). The end of the rainbow in a field down the way:
We also had a run-in with an enormous reptile--well, the biggest frog I'd seen on this side of the ocean outside of a zoo! My husband put him in a flower bed by the street, but he made a quick run back towards our house! I was trying to anticipate his fast gate, thus the off centered picture! Nevertheless, he has a new home (we hope) in the park next door, rather than our entry way.
Next, we were down at the missionary houses, looking to see what the proposed paint colors looked like. The colors are not exact in the picture (more brown and gray than yellow and green), but we both felt these two were a little dark with the terra cotta floors.
The upstairs room colors were better I think--here with the laminate flooring. What do you think?

I've had a new eagerness to use up leftover candy canes I've been keeping since they are getting goopy here in Portugal (it's not as dry as Germany). It's also encouraged this new season for me in the living overseas experience: use up my American (or German) foods stash and not hoard it for who knows when! I know the holidays are officially over, but this is worth it any cold night! And whole soft candy canes melt really well too!
