Pure Summer Joy

This is a picture of our daughter, gleefully sprinting off a dock into the lake...

8-year-old-pure-unbridled-joy style!

May your summer be this full of spontaneous happiness and splashing in the heat!

Hot Searing Heat

It is so hot here in Michigan (100 degrees right now) that you could fry an egg on the sidewalk (my dad used to tell me that when he was a boy in Baghdad, this was so...and I've loved this phrase since...). Stay cool...and please, pass the ice.

Flower and Herb Tea

I have been craving a huge gallon glass jar filled to the top with sweet flower petals, strong iced black tea and herbs, so...I made some. I went into the yard and garden and gathered organic rose petals, bee balm, mint, lemon balm and red clover blossoms and let them all steep together with the brewed tea.  After steeping, I placed the gallon jar in our egg cooler to chill. Then, I poured the ice cold tea over ice cubes and drizzled raspberry syrup in. Proof that you can make dreams into reality.  (:
