I stole this from Facebook and I’m posting it here so that I can find it later/pin it. Because these combos sound delicious - and will probably help me drink more water this summer…
Ms Prissy Sassy Water
2 liters water
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
1 medium cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
1 medium lemon, thinly sliced
12 small peppermint leaves
Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher and let flavors blend overnight. Strain the pitcher the next morning and drink all of the flavored water the next day. Bonus: The ingredients in this recipe help de-bloat your belly!
Fruity Hooty H2O
2 liters water
1/2 bunch basil, mint or tarragon
½ cup grapes or strawberries
1 orange peeled
1 cup watermelon
Combine water with the above ingredients in these combinations: Strawberry-orange-basil; watermelon-mint; grape-tarragon. If the fruit requires peeling (such as melons), peel first and then slice; berries and grapes can be used whole. Herbs can be either torn or tossed in whole. Infuse the water in the refrigerator overnight, allowing the herbs and fruits to remain for a more intense flavor.
Lemon Herb Inspired Spa Water
· 6 cups chilled still spring or mineral water
· 12 thin slices cucumber
· 4 thin slices lemon
· 4 sprigs (each 2 in. long) fresh mint, slightly crushed
· 2 sprigs (each 2 in. long) fresh rosemary, slightly crushed
In a 2- to 2 1/2-quart pitcher, combine water, cucumber, lemon, mint, and rosemary. Serve, or cover and chill at least 2 hours or up to 8 hours. Add ice cubes just before serving
Turns out that tomorrow is National Puppy Day—
Here’s Lyndon B. Johnson showing a basket of beagle puppies to Courtenay Valenti.
LBJ had several dogs, including two beagles, Him and Her. These puppies were sired by Him. 1/5/1966.

National Puppy Day?!
BEST. DAY. EVER.
Now, where do I find me some puppies?
Hey ya’ll! I need your help!
Earlier today Community Coffee posted my photograph as an Ad without permission or credit. In some sense, they stole my photograph and used it to represent their company.
So far they adamantly stated they don’t feel any need to compensate me. I honestly disagree with their stance.
So! I’m asking everyone to leave a friendly message on their Facebook wall asking them to donate $10,000 to a worthy animal shelter. Let’s save some animals and create good out of this.
Please tell Community Coffee that if they are going to use this photo without permission and without compensating the photographer they should donate $10,000 to an animal shelter.
I just wanted to update my registration links now that the Run, Walk or Roll for Cerebral Palsy (benefiting Gio’s Garden) is now open!
($25 per adult.)
Not only will I be participating in this 5k, so will my husband, son, in-laws and parents. We’re making it a family affair! :) I volunteered at this run/walk last year - and it is a really great time. I’m excited to run this year. I’m also excited for the new route! Last year’s route was near Edgewood College - and was beautiful. This year the race route is in Middleton - closer to the Gio’s Garden house - and should be really fun!
