a satsuma by any other name..

I am ill.  This is what my husband brought to tempt me:

Isn't it perfect? 

As we approach the holiday season, it reminds me of the apples and oranges we children always found at the bottom of our Christmas stockings, and which still appear in our stockings year after year.  What a thrill it must have been to see such a jewel in your stocking centuries ago.  As we head into the American Thanksgiving holiday tomorrow, today I give thanks for the California farmers and the many others along the way, right up to and including my husband, who played a part in delivering this beautiful get-well satsuma to me.
