Celebrate National Lemonade Day

How do you Celebrate National Lemonade Day? Celebrate by mixing up your favorite flavor: You can make regular lemonade, pink lemonade, strawberry lemonade and even watermelon lemonade.

Lemonade is a sweetened beverage made from lemons, sugar, and water. This cooling drink has been popular in the Southern United States for years! Sweet tea and lemonade are practically trade marks of the south.

Try Watermelon Lemonade! The mild flavour of the watermelon blends nicely with the tart lemon juice.
~Mix 6 cups watermelon in blender with 1 cup water
~1/3 cup sugar
~Best to heat sugar and water to make a syrup before adding 1/2 cup lemon juice

Today is National Go Barefoot Day!

Bare Feet in the Grass

Why can't every day be a barefoot day? I love to go barefooted as often as possible. I love to feel dirt, grass or sand between my toes! Today is a good day to go barefooted and a good day to show your support for charities like Soles4Souls, a global not-for-profit institution that collects new or used shoes and clothes for people in need.  They also help to create jobs in poor and disadvantaged communities.
