Hot Dawg Days of Summer!
Well, the mid-summer heat sure is here. Al and I have been trying to find ways to stay cool this month.
In doing so, we discovered we like to prepare this spritz to help cool us down. It sure has come in handy this summer. I just made another batch to take with me to Saskatchewan for some family time with my Mom and sister. However she just told me it hasn't gotten hotter than 20 this summer!! Yeiks! I will still be enjoying my visit with her, but really??? 20 C? That's 68 F! Mom said it felt like winter the other day.
Here is the recipe for a nice summer spritz! Try it, you'll like it. For more ideas, be sure to check this site out.
1/4 Cup Rose water
8 drops lavender essential oil
Add these to a small spray bottle shake vigorously prior to use
How have you been adding fun into your life this summer? It is an important element to keeping your life in balance. For me, I got out my rollerblades for the first time in ten years! Wow, I had a blast. Al and I both wonder why we waited ten years to do this.
We enjoyed some company of family passing through, so we went golfing , showed them beautiful sights, and had a lot of laughs. I was not sure if I would like golfing, especially since it was the hottest day of the year! But, it turned out I loved it. For me, 9 holes was plenty. Golfing lessons is now on my bucket list!
