i feel pickles coming on! hopefully that will happen soon as i just picked our 10th cucumber from the garden! it was too hot to attempt today. i also want to pick a few early on for that particular recipe so that the seeds will be a little more manageable. i was about to throw these ones into the fridge with the others::
when i suddenly remembered something from days of yore; back when i had an hour to go to a spa (really only went once when big b bought me a gift certificate for my birthday). it was my first time, and i remember sitting in the waiting area in a fluffy white robe while sipping flavored water served from big glass pitchers. it was nice and certainly relaxing but in retrospect, i definitely didn't realize at the time just how heavenly it all was. thinking of it now makes my mouth water and the dirty diapers smell stinkier. at any rate, i decided to mix up a batch of my own::
so crisp and clean and delicious. very refreshing. o liked it, bella made a face (she's a purist for sure) and the little big man said "it tastes like drinking cucumbers". i closed my eyes, sipped, and pretended i was back in the sitting room, waiting for my massage and facial. i could almost smell the oils, could almost hear the peruvian wind pipes coming from the speakers strategically hidden behind the trickling water fountain. then little lu spit up on me! ah, motherhood!
happy happy weekend! see you on monday.
