Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. ~ William Wordsworth
Oh, I feel this! My current summers are not anywhere this warm - or as warm as the ones of my youth . . . but I do remember. :)
These are my present summers :) Thank you so much
Chilled lemonade sounds great! We used to eat watermelon on and off all day in the summer when I was a kid.
I am not very fond of watermelons but they are the best to beat the heat so yes, that figures in too :) Thank you so much
Now I'm just thirsty. Great read.
Thank you so much
That smoothie sounds delicious, a refreshing summer elixir.
Trust me it is. If I were to choose one favorite drink for myself, it would be this smoothie :) Thank you so much Tara
Mmmmm. I love the tastes of summer. Thanks for linking up. Remember to come back and vote at the end.
Sure. Thanks Editors :) I guess every season has somethings to look forward to :)
oh how lovely and wonderful that first sip of something cold feels on a parched throat in summer. This brought that feeling right to my own tongue.
Thank you so much Kir for such heart-warming compliments
Oh Ruby this is really wonderful. My mouth got dry reading it but it was nicely quenched with that wonderful smoothie! :D
Thank you so much Linda. I am also looking forward to have another round of that smoothie :)
I like how you used the coolness of the drinks to underscore how hot it really is. Great job.
Thank you so much for such encouraging words
Oh, so true! And now I want a smoothie! Great take on the prompt Ruby! :)
Come summers and I want to have a smoothie all the time :) Thank you so much Suzanne
That short-lived relief that leaves you needing more to quench your thirst and defeat the heat. Great imagery.
That's when you go and make some more (: Thanks for this taste of summer.
Thank you for your encouragement Draug
