It's been really hot here, which means lots of water and iced tea for me. Ice cold black tea with milk has been my favorite this year. What is it about the heat that brings memories of childhood? Maybe it's all those recollections of lounging all summer break long, well aware of a generally empty calendar. My sister and I did take advantage of her Summer break, and spent almost every Monday together doing something to entertain ourselves. We could usually be found at some point in the day pounding iced lattes in a desperate attempt to stay cool/stay awake.
As much as I love Summer, I am missing cooking. It's just too hot. I made scones a couple mornings ago, and just being around the hot oven almost sent me over. I love Autumn sincerely, and I will be overjoyed when it comes to town, but still I must continue to dote on Summer while I have it. Salad and fruit have been my companions for months, but when the weather starts to cool I know I will be anxious to start on some soups. And pie. My good Lord the thought of cinnamon...
Before I forget I have the winners for the glitter heart cake topper contest. I used a random number generator to get the results, so the turnout is quite fair. Ok here goes...
