Today I got in the pool. The temp of the water is already perfect. Which means that the weather has already been hot enough to warm the water because I really don't like to get in cold water, which I believe I might've mentioned a time or two on this blog. I sat out by the pool today and read a book on Paul by F.F. Bruce. It's a book from seminary that I enjoy re-reading. Jessica saw I had it out and asked if I was reading it. She used it as a source for her research paper so she's familiar with it. I told her I was because it's a really good book. She agreed but said it was more like an encyclopedia. It's not, I promise.
I made a yummy summer treat the other day. It was really the result of an accident. I made cupcakes because the kids were going to have friends over after church -- not the public school kids because they aren't out of school yet, but the private school kids. I was going to make some glaze with some frozen strawberries that I put in the blender & powdered sugar. But, I didn't have enough powdered sugar to make it glazy enough so it was really strawberry syrup. yum! I ended up dipping the cupcakes in the strawberry syrup but had a lot left over. So, I added some crushed ice and blended it and it made a strawberry icee. It was really good. Today I made it again but with some mixed frozen fruit. I didn't have powdered sugar (still) and didn't want to put in regular sugar because I thought it would be too grainy so I made a simple syrup and then added that and the ice. I have to admit I like just strawberry but it was really refreshing so maybe it will become a regular this summer. Except for the fact that everyone in my family except me has free-fill cups from Race Trac so they might prefer that. We'll see...
Have a marvelous Memorial Day weekend!
