This morning I began dehydrating a few old oranges and apples. Even though they looked good enough to eat on the inside, on the outside they had lost their glow and started showing signs of bruising and were headed for the trash bin soon.
I dehydrated them for 12 hours to dry them out as much as possible. I plan on using them in crafts or in a dish like potpourri. I don’t want them to mold, rot or get stinky.
I considered making bird-feeders out of the oranges, but I just couldn’t bring myself too. I was afraid that Babycat would think the feeders would be Birdie Buffets just for her and I couldn’t do that to the birds. Bless their be-feathered hearts, Babycat keeps them in all in a kerfuffle as it is.
Here’s a photo of some orange skin bird-feeders that my sister made a few years ago. Her birds made quick work of them and ate them all up. It’s a great way to use old oranges and feed the birdies too… (if you don’t have a cat)
I hope everyone had a pleasant weekend.
I took Sunday off from working on the webpage. My head appreciated the break and the ache went away. lol
I decided not to push myself on the webpage and build it in stages instead of trying to build it all at once or I’ll give up all together. Time will surely tell.
P.S. I would have gotten this posted sooner this evening, but there was ‘Big Bang Theory’ episodes playing that I’d never seen and they didn’t go off until 10pm and then I got side tracked doing super dishes and well here I am rushing trying to post while it’s still Monday. Let see if I make it…
