I have been in Bermuda for a little over five years now and I swear this summer been the hottest and most humid I have experienced. I probably say this every year because I prefer cold weather to hot weather. When its cold, you can layer on clothes, drink lots of tea, make a yummy soup or switch on a heater and you get more work done. However, when it is hot you have fewer options, all I want to do is take all day naps. I could go to the beach but I do not like going to the beach. Truthfully, I like being at the beach but I do not like the sand that I bring home so I avoid it. Leo likes playing in the sand and getting it in his hair and when we leave the beach; he goes to sleep right away, so perhaps I should go more often. Yeah, I just don’t like summer, never did. The only good thing is that I remember to drink water more often and other fluids.
I was watching Bobby Flay make a sangria and it reminded of the fruit punch I used to make in Zimbabwe. I would cut up some fruits and mix an assortment of fizzy drinks. There really was no recipe to it, just whatever I had available and we would drink it almost immediately. Now I know better, if you make the drink ahead of time it tastes better and gives the fruits time to release their flavours.
