Thursday Challenge: Sweet Orange


My daughter isn’t feel 100% tonight (I’m hoping she just needs a good night sleep), so I gave her a dose of nature’s medicine, an orange.

The theme for Thursday’s Challenge this week is SWEET (Candies, Cookies, Cakes, Pies, Honey, Nice-Sounding, Beloved, Charming,…).

Ellie says

Much better then the pink covered sprinkling donat I still cannot forget :)This orange says - healthy written all over it! Hope your girl feels better soon!

Leora says

Yeah, maybe she had one too many sweets last week. And she never seems to go to sleep early enough. Tonight she fell asleep soon after 8 pm. Hope that cures her.

ramblingwoods says

Oh dear.I hope she feels better in the morning Leora....My daughter was here this weekend and sick. I had brought her a Tylenol and a cold cloth when she went to bed and she said it was nice having some "Mommy-Care" even at her age..LOL..

Leora says

I take "Mommy-Care" at any age. Sometimes my kids give me mommy-care. My daughter does it like this: if you are tired, lie down, but first can you get me...and a list of ten things comes out of her mouth.

Carletta says

Lovely shot Leora - well executed!

Hope your daughter feels better soon.

Nita says

Beautiful choice of this week's theme :) My first entry is up as well. Hope to see you there :)


Ilana-Davita says

I hope that your daughter is better today.
How did you get such a dark background?

Leora says

Yes, she woke up feeling fine! Obviously, a good night sleep was in order.

A black plate. And I did fill in one spot of light in Photoshop with black.

Mrs. S. says

Glad to hear that your daughter is B"H feeling better.

I really like the contrast of the bright orange and the black background.

Here in Israel, we never see oranges in the summer. Fruit is only available in season.

bookbabie says

The dark background does look great with the bright color of the orange!

Dhaval Jani says

Simply love this pic... and glad that your daughter is feeling good:)

JewWishes says

I hope your daughter feels better! Never mind, I see that she is...and I'm glad. :)

That is a lovely photo...making my mouth drool.

Clara says

I love your picture. And your name. Leora is my middle name. My mother chose the name in honor of one of her best friends. I think it's a beautiful name but I don't hear it often.

Anyway, the orange just glows against the black background! And I'm glad its healing powers worked, too.

Leora says

I had a great aunt named Clara. I never met her.

Leora means "I have light: Le-ora" (or = light in Hebrew)

race says

that's healthy and delicious especially if you're not feeling well, every time my kids are sick i always gave them sweet oranges and apples and they feel better after eating.
