One thing that I did do recently was join a gym. We joined LifePointe here in Lincoln. It is a bit spendy and far from home, but we are enjoying it immensely. Very zen, very clean, very friendly.
Something I didn't do (yet) is finish my damn tunic! Bagh! I like it. I want to finish it, I just don't want to get everything out.
Another thing I did was use one of my awesome new wedding gifts--the Ona Pitcher from Crate and Barrel. It is glorious. And, by using the pitcher, I also did something else I enjoy: make lemonade! Delicious.
Isn't it just gorgeous? I made the lemonade the same way my mom does. Easy breezy.
1 cup water
1 cup sugar--boil these two until clear, then let cool
The juice of 4-5 lemons (my mom, Jacque, likes to add the lemon juice to the hot syrup mixture while it is cooling to "infuse" it with the lemon flavor--Jacque knows, folks)
Put the lemon juice and simple syrup in a pitcher and add around 6 cups of water. You could add more or less depending on your taste. Then, pour it in a glass, ice it up and drink it!
One thing I didn't do this summer is read much. I think I have read one or two books this summer. Pretty lame, eh? I love to read, but I also love to sit around and watch TV. Such is life.
The final thing that I am glad I did this summer is plant a potted herb garden! I just did it today. Let's hope it grows!
Hurrah for the things I didn't do, as well as those I did.
p.s. To all of you Albionites out there reading this--I should have done this post Cheers and Jeers style. I'm going to keep that on the back shelf for later...
