Homemade Lemonade


Homemade Lemonade, originally uploaded by Temeculamom.

One stolen moment in a hectic day. Today, as so many other days, was spent getting the kids to school, getting to my own class, running errands, back to class, off to pick up the kids from school, watching soccer practice, running through the drive through-since we had 15 minutes to make/eat dinner, watching football practice, helping the kids finish up their homework, filling out school emergency contact forms and putting the kids to bed. Somewhere in this day I found five minutes to squeeze a couple of lemons into a glass, stir in some evaporated cane juice and top it off with water and ice. Stirred up with a pretty vintage teaspoon, this made a small treat that was good for my body and soul. It was a lesson for me in appreciating the little things and making a small celebration out of a thirsty moment.
