Time For Some Lemonade!

Yes, that time is nearly upon us...when the temperature goes up, and a glass of freshly squeezed lemonade would be most refreshing!

I remember when I was just a young teen, so young that I hadn't a clue about making fresh lemonade from lemons. And of all things, I got a job at a health food restaurant opened by a lady who was , how can I say it? She was not a nice person...she put me behind a counter where I was to make the tea and drinks.

One day she stormed in and barked.."Make some lemonade.." and just handed me a sack of lemons. I was too terrified to ask her how, and she didn't ask me if I knew how or tell me how to do it. So, you guessed it, I spent ALL morning squeezing lemon juice into a pitcher, adding some honey into it, and that was it. You can imagine what happened when a customer ordered it and tasted it. Talk about getting chewed out! ! That was an understatement! That job didn't last long, I can tell you! LOL

Anyway, in honor of that sunny, citrus refreshment, I have found some cute and unique finds that reflect that wonderful summer drink. Think about taking a look at these shops to maybe brighten the fading winter blahs, and add some zest to your day!

These are like lemonade and pink lemonade in one fruity slipper!!! Very cute! I think I worked for this woman too. At a couple different locations! One lady (who's dad owned the business) used to say EVERY Friday to me, "Why don't you call on Monday, to make sure you still have a job here with us". What a nice start to the weekend. UGG! I think I am going to put some other Bad Bosses up on the wall of shame on my blog now, thanks for a great idea for a post!

hugz and have a GREAT day!!!
