Rainbow Summer School - Orange!

Class is in session! Rainbow Summer School with my favorite teacher, Mrs. Matlock. Last week we talked about red. This week, we are to write about the color orange. It's been crazy hot this summer - yesterday when I left work it was 107. So all I can think about right now are nice, cool things. These are some of my favorites during this kind of heat.


Blue Bell - the best ice cream in the world!


Blue Bell Bullets - the orange are my favorite.


In the summer, I love to mix orange sherbet with club soda for a refreshing and not too horrible for you treat.


And when I have one of those days where I am too frazzled to worry about calories, this poured over some Homemade Vanilla ice cream is my go to treat.
But this is my favorite orange of all ...



Hope you enjoyed my essay on orange. Excuse me, I need to go to the kitchen for a bit... Go visit all the other students, I'll be back later!

You found some good ways to stay cool with orange. Where was the last picture taken? Very nice sunset (or was it sunrise?).

Debbie said...

Beautiful Kat....I love orange drink and with ice cream even better. Following you back, your no dork!

Christy said...

Frozen sherbets are so refreshing - lovely after a rich meal as well!

Wow! That is hot,hot,hot. Hope you found something cool in the kitchen.

Cheryl said...

Loved how you used orange to cool down then ended with that brilliant sunset.

JDaniel4's Mom said...

I love orange sherbet with fortune cookies. I always think of the two of them together.

Shellbelle said...

Seems we share the favorite orange of sunsets and I know neither of us are surprised.

I had a GREAT time in Tampa, but I'm ready to quit celebrating getting older, lol. I still have one more celebration this weekend with my favorite cousin and then it's finally over until next year.

I had to go back and read the music challenge questions I missed while I was away, they are so much fun! Skeletons gave me chills and I'm with your dad, I loved the Righteous Brothers.

But my favorite post was DH playing with Borrowed Time at the Poppy Festival earlier this year. I would love to have heard them play! That is so very cool! AND they get ask back for next year? Excellent, let's hear it for the old guys who still ROCK!

Wow! That's hot! Hot here too in S Spain - 39C yesterday in Granada!I drink lots of fresh orange juice - from trees we're fortunate to have in the garden!

Have a great Rainbow Orange day,

LOLA:)

PS Mine this week is HERE. Hope you can stop by!

Lois said...

It all sounds so good Kat! I haven't thought about Nehi in years.

Pondside said...

Yes, yes to the sorbet with club soda - bubbly and delicious!. We don't have the Nehi drink up here - I'll have to try it next time I'm down south.

Viki said...

I love sherbet but for some reason don't buy it much. My fav is orange. Occasionally from schwan's I buy the ones in little holders, and you pop them up. I've never tried it with club soda. I might have to give it a try. Cool orange post.

Jingle said...

sweet one,
love orange ice pops.

Sue said...

Not fond of orange, but I guess I do like the treats!

And it's great in nature.

=)

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I've always loved orange ice pops and orange soda. Do you remember the powder orange drink caled "Tang"? The one the astronauts drank? I can't belive they used to advertise it as being better than orange juice..lol

Jo said...

i love the orange sunset ... so pretty

Always Nesting said...

Now how did I know this would be a fun post? LOL, I would take any of those orange treats.

Terra said...

I haven't had orange sherbet in AGES...it is 8am and I think need some.

onangelwings said...

Very cool! Love orange soda, it has been years since I had some.

Confessions of a Plate Addict said...

Oh, Kat...Now you are making me want an orange float...only I would have mine with diet gingerale!! Baby Kitty has always reminded me of one! lol But I love your sunset photo...gorgeous! And about songs and places...I have a few that take me somewhere else on the first note. Isn't it funy how that works? Happy weekend...hugs...Debbie

Jenny said...

Kat, we are sharing those same horrific temperatures. I am sooooo done with summer.

Alas, I don't think it is done with me.

What a refreshing stop on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday's Rainbow Summer School.

And that photo...breathtaking.

Thank you for linking.

A+
