Day One

Breakfast: Coffee w/ coconut  creamer, at home.

And then packed to work–yogurt and watermelon cubes. Also packed in lunch: sliced beets w/ white balsamic vinaigrette and sliced hard-boiled eggs, an apple, celery with peanut butter, and home-made lemonade.

Home-made lemonade

(Home made lemonade: 4 cups water, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup lemon juice. Stir. This is the Poor Man’s Lemon Shake-Up. Illinois State Fair goers know what I am talking about.)

Lemonade poured into my daughter’s water bottle–(what?? She is gone for the week, and not using it….)
