Cherry Limeade


Yeah, I’m adding words to photos now. Not sure why. Maybe because it seems more professional. Or educational. Or decorational. Well now I’m just making up words. Like earlier today…I had an incident with a spider, a fly, and a worm. So, I told the kids that it was an “insectual” kind of day. Sounded like something entirely different once the word escaped my mouth. I guess that’s what I get for not thinking before I speak. Do you think the word “insectual” will ever make it into the dictionary? It’s gonna be big! Feel free to use it if you have incidents with insects. It’ll make people laugh. Or at least raise their eyebrows….


2 c fresh cherries, pitted and sliced in half

1 c sugar

4½ c water, divided

1 c fresh lime juice (juice of 10-12 medium limes)



Simmer cherries, sugar and 1 cup water in saucepan over medium/low heat for 30 minutes. Pour through fine mesh strainer into pitcher. Add lime juice and remaining water. Chill. Serve over ice.

    I think you are on something here. Oh wait, did I say that? I should have said, I think you are on TO something here…with the cherry limeade, not with the insectual thing. If you keep up that kind of language someone may report you and then you’ll have to give your blog an adulterous rating…I mean an adult rating. Annnnd it is way late and I have taken my ambien to make me go to sleep, which I am obviously not doing because here I am, writing nonsense on your blog again.

    Hope your root canal went okay. I haven’t had one of those yet, but I’m sure my turn is coming sooner or later.

    Can I just say one more thing? Spider’s give me the creeps, so whatever your insectual encounter involved today, I hope the spider lost. It would have seriously lost at my house and the fly would have been sent home to Jesus right along with the spider. The worm? Banned to the garden or flower bed.

      Haha! I like you on Ambien! So funny. I’m so glad for you that you haven’t gone on a root canal trip yet. Might I suggest a trip to the Bermuda Triangle instead? It’ll be more pleasant! Oh, and here are some stats: spider=lost, fly=lost, and worm=banned to the garden. You were dead on!
