Hi friends!

I am going to try and be brief this week (sorry, I should have warned you to sit down first 😂). Hopefully you didn’t hurt yourself and are back reading!

I’ve had “a week” this week, we all have them! From PT appointments, teeth cleaning, busily preparing several new recipes for you all, getting our son who is a senior ready for school, how is it possible that school starts next week?

Anyhoo, it’s August, which means it’s time to start thinking about end of summer parties, school lunches, and moving college kids back to college. And that’s just off the top of my tired little head!

Our college son doesn’t go back for a few more weeks, but in the meantime, you might want to check out these posts:

Watermelon Slush {No Sugar, Low Calorie}

Since it has been a long, hot week for me, I thought I’d share with you this new favorite recipe of ours, it’s one the whole family will enjoy.

I actually got the idea for this watermelon slush from my physical therapist, she has been a HUGE help with some hip issues I’ve been having, but I had to see her a few extra times the past few weeks after what I call a “sleep injury.” If you aren’t over 50 you might not know what that is; you go to bed fine and wake up not fine!

After rafting with my family a few weeks ago, my abs and core where very sore (duh!) and turning over in bed one night, I felt a tearing like feeling and could barely walk the next day. Turns out it is a strained hip flexor which only added to my hip pain. I am much better, I adore my PT! Anyway, I tell you more about the how this recipe came about in the post below.

You are going to love this NO SUGAR, LOW CALORIE, COOL & REFRESHING DRINK!

Do you have a great blender! I love my blender(s), yes, I have the Ninja Smoothie Blender which is used by everyone in our family every day! Smoothies, protein shakes, milk shakes, pancake batter, & salad dressings!

But when I need to do big jobs, like make a soup, a frozen drink or blend a sauce, I haul out my Vitamix blender! Love it ! However; if that’s too pricey (I get it!) I have friends who love their Ninja Blenders!
