    Memorial Day Thursday #534

    Let's all pause for a moment and remember those who have gone before us.

    The ones who built what we have now.

    In the United States it's a weekend to remember those who died fighting for our freedom

    Anyone for a Red, white and Blue Sangria?

    Red, White, and Blue Sangria

    Ingredients:

    Strawberries, sliced
    Blueberries
    Pineapple, cut into star shapes
    2 bottles dry white wine
    1 cup Triple Sec
    1/2 Cup berry-flavored vodka
    1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
    1/2 cup simple syrup

    Combine the ingredients in a large pitcher and stir. Chill in the refridgerator for at least four hours.

    It actually sounds good, and after I go out to reset the fence around the garden to bunny proof it for the year, I'm going to need it !

    (On a much lighter note, can we have a moment of silence for my DVR? An entire year of Formula one and Dr. Who lost to the gremlins!)

    Today's Google doodle is very timely. I don't want to spoil it.

    That red, white and blue Sangria sounds great! Hey, it's 5:00 somewhere!

    As far as I'm concerned, it's 5 O'clock here!

    DVR has been replaced, set up to re-record Dr. who, and it's raining, so I can't get anything done outside.

    Ooh, and how about some red, white and blueberry cake? I have been known to, for special occasions, throw some raspberries in the family blueberry cake recipe - quite festive - and yummy!

    It's only 50F today in Chicago ... I'm drinking decaf coffee; would anyone like some with me? It's supposed to be back up to 70F by Monday, with rain on-and-off all weekend.
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    I saw the Google Doodle and I agree...
    It is fitting to pause and reflect.

    After, can I have some of that Sangria? It sounds right up my alley!!

    Tuesday morning and it's still raining. Blecch. This rainy weather makes my joints ache, especially my old broken toe. I'm drinking decaf coffee again this morning; would anyone like some? It's supposed to rain all day with highs in the mid 70s F.
