this is lemonade

A mindful, grateful, creative life: Life constantly hurls lemons at us. I’m on a mission to make lemonade as best I can, by God’s grace.

Summer is here people! :)



If only we’d known there would be a summer at all this year, while we were stuck in the doldrums of the long winter 😉

The Great British Summer has arrived! Don’t blink or you’ll miss it. Enjoy it while it lasts!

I wonder how many roundabouts will have sunbathers on them this weekend. How many sausages will be incinerated? All the supermarkets will be out of instant barbecue trays for sure (I haven’t actually noticed that many on sale yet this year). Lucky I’ve still got a couple from an end of soggy summer sale from last year or whenever 😉

Have a lovely weekend everyone. Enjoy your holiday US readers! We don’t need a holiday here, it’s like Christmas has come early but without the cold! Time to put the lemonade on ice 😀

  1. It really has been a beautiful day here in The Toon. Just got back from a delightful evening walk with Skinny Dog, sun setting and the scent of honeysuckle in the air. Have a great weekend Lemony 🙂

    • Thank you so much! I’ve been having a good couple of weeks since it seems – hope you’ve continued to enjoy soaking up the sun. Honeysuckle…alas this townie cannot conjure up such a beautiful scent – have a wonderful evening! 🙂

  2. I’m wishing sunshine your way! What is an instant barbecue tray?

    • Ha! It’s simply a shortcut (probably not the most environmentally friendly) way to have a barbecue – coals in a foil tray, complete with a grille over the top. You just stick a lit match through the holes to light it and slap some burgers and sausages on top 😉
      Lots of sunshine thanks – apparently it’s the hottest day for 7 years today!
