Summer Prescriptions

I've been running like mad this week, and time has gotten away on me again.  (I'm still trying to see everyone's Mad Hatter tea party posts from Saturday!)  The rest of the week doesn't look much better with the holiday tomorrow (for us - July 1st is Canada Day,) and the long weekend ahead.  I will be doing markets Thursday through Sunday, so I'm not sure if I'll get back to post before the weekend is out.  I'll do  my best to make sure a Farmers Market Saturday post is up though.

Here are a few things that are making me smile throughout the crazy days of Summer:

My go-to drug of choice for hot summer days - Starbucks Peppermint Mocha Frapp.  (Don't look at the calorie or fat count on this - you will cry.)


 Zack Galifianakis - there is just something about this crazy, hairy man that makes me smile.  Check out "Between Two Ferns" on FunnyOrDie.com


I'm also a huge lemonade fan in the Summer.  I've got cherries now from the backyard tree, that I pit and mash a bit and toss in the lemonade pitcher.  It gives the drink a nice flavour and a pinky colour.  Also, Martha has a dozen or so recipies for different types of lemonade, and this lavender one is fabulous!



 Whatever it is that gets you through the hot Summer days, I hope you find a way to have a wonderful weekend and a great holiday.  Happy Canada Day!  Happy Fourth of July!

Wow...now I MUST get to Starbuck's and put these gift cards to good use. I'm not sure if my local Starbuck's will still have peppermint or not though. But I love mint and chocolate together. My old favorite for summer was a Banana, Coconut Mocha Frapp from Starbucks. I would not eat all day just so I could consume all those delicious calories and fat. But they quit having the banana and coconut flavors locally...boo hoo! It was the BEST thing I've ever tasted! :o)

I, too, like hairy men. I don't know what it is about them. I'll be posting about that sometime soon when I figure out how to work it into the post.:)

Happy Canada Day!

That mocha looks delicious and I'm not a coffee fan!

Kisses and love from us.
