Refresh

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you probably would have seen my post about how I gave myself a “day off” over the weekend. Like I pretty much did whatever I wanted. Which include not coming on here, and I wrote about the guilt of it all.

But it was what I needed, even with the guilt, even with the feeling of obligation that I felt to let people know.

So, apart from the guilt, it was good.

See, the weekend before, I had a cold. I also was supposed to see my Gran on the Saturday, and my partners Nan on the Sunday. You all know what its like when you’re sick, it’s not a “break” when you’re sick. Being sick is not a holiday.

I read so much, I played my computer games, I even got to do some journal writing. I didn’t have a bath, but lovely showers and I even took care of my feet, lol. I put on some incense. I did not over eat, but I enjoyed my food! ❤ What do you do to refresh and recharge?

I made a thing =D

We have just started Spring here in the land down under and this week in particular has been a scorcher! Also this year I have been getting more into cooking and such. I mean I’ve always been able to cook to survive type thing, but I am not a big lover of the kitchen!

However this year when I have gotten something stuck in my head to make, it usually has been staying in there until I either focus on something else (which guaranteed for me is pretty easy), or I make it. Since it’s been SO hot this weekend, I have literally been draining, I decided to make something I can never seem to find in my local supermarkets…Pink Lemonade

This was probably the best recipe that I found and it was really simple to make as well….Old Fashioned Pink Lemonade…The only thing is I used mostly lemon juice from a bottle (bad me, I know)…Otherwise be prepared to use and squeeze a LOT of lemons…I am not exaggerating, I mean a lot! It was really sweet and quite refreshing though, I highly recommend it

Watch this space for more cool recipes…I really want to make a “Jelly Cake” next =D I think that would fun for Spring!
