    Schools Out for Summer, #537

    I guess it's time for the kidlets to relax and start their summer vacation?

    I do miss beign in school and looking forward to spending a summer with no shoes, homework and waking up early.

    We'd wake up go play some ball in the street, maybe go swimming then go to the 'little store' to grab a sub, coke and a package of twinkies!

    -----------------

    I guess we can picnic again....... Tea and lemonade, maybe an Arnold Palmer?

    Ribs, coleslaw, beans....fruit salad and a fire for the firepit!

    The DOTD is a sangria!!!


    1/2 cup brandy

    1/4 cup lemon juice

    1/3 cup frozen lemonade concentrate

    1/3 cup orange juice

    1 (750 milliliter) bottle dry red wine

    1/2 cup triple sec

    1 lemon, sliced into rounds

    1 orange, sliced into rounds

    1 lime, sliced into rounds

    1/4 cup white sugar (optional)

    8 maraschino cherries

    2 cups carbonated water (optional)
    Directions
    1.In a large pitcher or bowl, mix together the brandy, lemon juice, lemonade concentrate, orange juice, red wine, triple sec, and sugar. Float slices of lemon, orange and lime, and maraschino cherries in the mixture. Refrigerate overnight for best flavor. For a fizzy sangria, add club soda just before serving.

    That sounds good! We just had another bunch of rain. June has been so rainy, except for 2 hot days right at the beginning.

    It was 93 degrees two days ago.....and humid as all get out.

    Back in CA the drastic weather change would make all us old timers start thinking about 'earthquake weather'..

    Let me pour some drinks and let's get this party on the road....

    Alice Cooper anyone?

    Done!

    I was born and raised in Ohio. There was always a certain "smell" about summer - the rain - the heat after a rain - the trees and on and on.

    The air was clear then......................

    Every day I take the dog for a walk and I am still amazed - and hope it never gets old to me - at the smells here.

    There is always someone cutting lawn (some lawns do have grass that have a blue shade to them) and the smell wafts over the area, even hours after they are cut.

    We haven't had a good thunderstorm yet, I do love the sound and light show, but there is a definite smell before a shower.

    And can't forget the winter months when a chimney smells like autumn/winter.

    -----------------

    Right after the twisters in Oklahoma a story about the weatherperson who told people to leave town and go in a certain direction aired. It caused problems because people listened, and when the storm took a turn in that direction it put everyone in danger.....

    Doris turned to me right after the story ended and said, "Maybe they should send him to do weather in California, It never changes there?"
