Our daughter made some fresh lemonade to quench our thirst today and it was delicious!
Here's her recipe: 8 lemons 10 - 12 cups of cold water 1 cup of sugar (or to taste) Juice seven lemons and slice one into rounds for garnishing. Combine lemon juice, water, and sugar in a large pitcher and mix thoroughly. Serve lemonade over lots of ice.
We're settling back home after a few busy weeks of guests, travel, and the birth of our beautiful niece, Ivanna. She is miraculously and bravely hanging on to her little life after a very rough start. We don't know what the future holds, but we are enjoying every moment we have with her. Holy Saint John of Shanghai and San Francisco, pray unto God for Ivanna!
Blueberries on the bush are such a feast for the eyes. We went to the farm to pick the blueberries a few days ago on a whim. It was little cooler and the sky was overcast, so the colors were even more glorious. The children nearly filled their baskets before we felt too hot to continue picking. We ate our fill at home and the rest were frozen for later. We'll try to go again on Monday to really make the most of this fleeting season.
