How rainy and dreary it is today! The chill went right to my bones. Since I was feeling under the weather, both from a cold and from the cold, I decided to make my favorite scones.

I got out the dates and the orange. Then I nibbled a date – Organic Medjool Dates from Whole Foods, and it was so smooth and sweet. Yum. And instead of grating the rind from the orange, I had to take a bite. So I peeled the orange to get a bite of date with orange. Oh how sublime! I ended up making a cup of herb tea (Traditional Medicinals Breathe Easy) and ate a bunch of dates and the orange instead of baking. I am thankful that God thought to create such exquisite flavors that we can pluck straight from a tree with no fuss and no cooking. Extraordinary.
