Grab a cucumber!

I am so sure you are all waiting for me to stop talking about my vacation.  Well, I'm going to do it again.  But I promise, I am nearing the end!  I've been doing some sewing, so I will have some things to show this week.  The forecast is a rainy one this week, so I am sure I will be able to sew some more!

I'll get on with it now!  When I had my heavenly spa day, I was reintroduced to a refreshing drink! 
Cucumber water!
I've actually made this with fruit and heard of it with the cucumber, but never actually had it before!

Just slice up a cucumber, I like the seedless English type, put it in a pitcher with water and chill.  If you have some mint, toss some in, even better!

Mmmm, we are hooked.  It's a great way to get your 8 glasses in a day and it tastes good too!

I've made it with strawberries before and the spa also had it with pineapple!  Take your pick and be refreshed!

Yum! I've heard about cucumber water but have never had it. I might need to try it.

I am not a big cucumber fan, but there is something about cucumber water...maybe it is because it reminds me of the spa. Glad you had a good spa day!

This sounds wonderful! I have done it before but had forgotten all about it. We served it at the bridal shower I did for my daughter-in-law.

I'm so sorry I haven't posted about he gorgeous and darling apron you made for me. How I love it! But I've had grandkids all week and was gone with the older kids all weekend. My daughter tried one photo right before we left for Dallas, but I didn't have my makeup on and well...I just didn't have the courage to post myself without makeup. :o) Hopefully in the morning! I can't wait to brag on your beautiful work!

Hubby loves it...and I do mean LOVES it!

Love,

I'm so glad you had a great vacation.

You keep talking about it girl.

I had cucumber water once and loved it. I don't know why I didn't try it again at home.

Thanks for the reminder (-:

Yummy! And then, since you're at a spa, you can take the cukes out and put them on your eyes, correctamundo?
