It is almost 100 degrees outside and I am taking a cue from the cats to spend the day lying by a breezy window reading magazines. So the cats aren't reading magazines but they are making the best of the breeze.
Recently I was at a friend's home and she offered me a glass of water from a pitcher filled with lemon & mint. I was so thrilled by it that I spent the rest of the evening commenting on how great it was [it's the little things]. Every so often a rather obvious idea like a mint & lemon pitcher [at home not just in restaurants] suddenly hits me with a resounding "duh!" and like that my life is changed [to an extent]. So now I am enjoying my excessively minty & lemony water in this near unbearable heat.
Also other obvious but yummy idea I stole from a coworker. When she brings this in the morning I find myself hanging around her desk just to catch a smell. Bagel & [tofutti] cream cheese w/ lemon pepper and garlic.
This is warming up to be a very miserably hot summer.
