Hot days like we’ve had recently call for some iced drinks….
….any iced drinks would work. Just so the ice is packed in.
When it’s this hot out I’m all for iced drinks for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
And one that works great for all three is iced coffee.
You know it’s really hot outside when you….
…..run outside to get the mail real quick in your bare feet and the concrete is so hot that you have to intermittently hop on to the grass.
…..get out of the shower and you’re already starting to sweat.
…..have to stick your face in front of a fan before putting on your makeup because your face is so sweaty.
…..put ice in a glass and before you even start to pour water in it the ice is already melted.
…..walk into spider webs that weren’t there an hour before.
Thank you for stopping by and have a nice (and cool) week!
