It is time to ponder with Brenda.
Today's word is Orange
I am changing my usual colour from purple to orange to write today.
I need my orange juice first thing in the morning even before my cup of coffee. I prefer to drink an orange juice rather than eat an orange. Peeling an orange is not my favourite way to spend my time.

Orange is also associated with Halloween. I suppose that is because the pumpkins that become jack-o-lanterns are orange as well.
There are also lots of other fruits and vegetables that are orange such as squash and carrots as well as some peppers.
Orange fruits and vegetables are very good for your eyesight. It contains beta-carotene.
It is a colourful ponder today.
