I am enjoying my second glass of home made lemonade. It's so, so good.

I've been drinking from a huge pitcher of cucumber water all day. It is SO stinkin' hot here.

I just had a tall glass of sweetened sun tea - perfect on a hot day like this.

I drank about 8 ounces of sauvignon blanc I was cooking with last night, and oh dear oh dear was I silly for a solid several hours afterwards.

Today, back to the chilled green tea.

I've got a glass of Chardonnay, but it's the cheapo stuff, so it's slightly reminiscent of lighter fluid...

The baby is in bed. I spent the better part of today sorting through belongings and packing. And now I'm enjoying a glass of cheapo chardonnay after dinner.

I just got done having my last cup of coffee with milk/sugar. I'll have some sweet ice tea with lunch.

I'm finishing up a sparkling water, but will be having a glass of chardonnay with dinner in a bit. A tomorrow I'm putting a jug of sun tea of the back deck to perk away all morning. :-)

It's late, but I'm savoring a glass of chardonnay. I hate those nights when my body feels tired, but my mind is wide awake...

I'm having a pint of our homebrewed brown ale. It's been about six weeks in the bottle now, so it's richer and tastes much more mature. Very good.

Right now, I'm drinking water.


I start every day with two cups of coffee (black, no sugar).

 

I drink lots of water (not as much as I used to, and I'm working on that) every day.

 

Several times a week, I make up a batch of nettle infusion - let it steep overnight in my french press, and drink it the next morning.

 

I drink a few cups of raspberry leaf tea each day during my period, and for a day or two before (if I know when it's coming - I frequently don't!).

 

Other than that, I drink an assortment of Tetley herbal teas, depending on my mood. I also make up smoothies (mostly berry, with spinach..and yogurt - we like them creamy) for the kids, and if there's enough, I have some of that. But, I don't make them that often.

 

That's about it. Once in a blue moon, I'll have a glass of lemonade or pop at a restaurant. I have an alcoholic drink (bottled coolers, cider, or wine) something like once a month...maybe? I'm not sure it's that often.

 

And, when it's cold out, I do have an occasional hot chocolate, or hot spiced apple juice...but not right now!

Today it's iced tea, but it's not what I really want.

Just finished a sparkling water. Trying to decide if I want another one, or a glass of iced tea or a glass of chardonnay. Not sure yet.

Water, water and more water.  Because it's been hotter-n-hell and I've been eating tons and tons and mountains of salt, and my anklebones are officially missing.  So it's water and more water all day for me.

Some OJ.   It's turned into a night time routine,  snuggles with the puppy and a big giant glass of OJ.

Dang, tequila on Tuesdays!? You are made of tougher stuff than me!

 

Tonight, I'm enjoying a glass of chardonnay - baby is asleep, husband is out gaming with friends and I'm about to tidy up a bit and then get comfortable with a book.

Chardonnay, from an actual bottle with a cork, not a box. Small victories.
