O Is For Orange

Since I was such a Debby Downer last week, I am cheering things up this week.
I love my oven. I use it almost every day.
In fact, just this morning I made a carrot cake.
Which brings me to my post for today.
I love color. The brighter the better. I have light lime green walls for Pete's sake.... but my favorite color in the whole wide world is orange.
I know you have heard me say blue is my favorite, and it is, but my all-time fave is bigger than just a fave. I know you feel me... besides, how can a person love just one color? That is a ridiculous notion.
Just look at this color, and tell me it doesn't make you smile.
From a light shade like a pumpkin, to a dark shade that is almost a red, it is a vibrant and happy color.

So tell me folks, what is one color, yeah just one, that automatically does it for you? What's your all-time fave??

  2. I get your love of all things orange...as I have the same passion for purple - red purple, blue purple, violet, indigo and everything inbetween :-)
    On my debbie downer days I wear my purple top or my purple dress - works every time!
    Glad to see you found your mojo again this week :-)

  5. I have to say I love orange and all its hues. Peach is my ultimate favorite. But I love carrot cake, too!

  6. I'd have to say purple, especially a rich, deep purple.

  7. Sorry, but it's not orange. I always like any shade of blue, but right now I'm thinking of painting my kitchen green. I like it, but I'm wondering if I'll regret it down the road.

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
