    MHH Read in day, this Saturday August 9th.

    Set aside some time, grab something delicious to read, a fabulous drink and settle in for some reading time!

    After a day in the yard and painting I will love to sit and read! Must make a trip to library this week - the book I am currently reading is to 'heavy' a read for a relaxing night :)

    Thinking I will browse the paperback racks!

    I love this idea! I just checked out The Night Circus from the library - so that should be a great chance to get started on it! :)

    This is such a wonderful idea. We are having Rowan's 1st Birthday gathering for family and friends, so won't manage this time. However will keep my eyes peeled for the next time. Sometimes I do need to remind myself to take time to read :D

    Peach Iced Tea

    I have an iced tea maker, but you can just make it like regular tea.

    4 Bags of regular tea
    2 Bags of Lipton Island Mango & Peach tea
    2 Quarts of water

    I just set the machine to make the tea. Machine heats up 1 quart of water which steeps the tea, and adds it to the other quart of cold water. I don't let it steep too long. Let it cool a bit then I put it in the fridge, or pour over a glass of ice immediately.

    The key ingredient here is the Lipton Island Mango & Peach white tea pyramid bags. I've tried other peach tea bags, but these are so flavorful and smell like a ripe peach.

    I don't add any sugar to my tea but you could add some.

    I join everybody….. in thinking that this is a great idea! We NEED to be reminded to give ourselves the healthy luxury…. of reading!

    I started off the morning with a walk, an hour of gardening, and then going out to split a "breakfast platter" with dh. During the breakfast, I made the mistake of reading the newspaper…. which is NOT filled with "good news"!!!!

    Now… I'll catch up with out MHH Family… and look forward to some NICE (non-news) reading!

    I have a book about gardening in Louisiana that I plan to read on some. It's set up for what should be done each month, so I plan to focus on August and September. A different kind of read, but what I want to do!
