Peach Lemonade, yummy!

Bob loves fruit and fruit juice! I know he's going to love this divine cooler! Let's set out the deck furniture. Spring came very early this year, like the beginning of March. We have had so many 80 degree days already, I'm a little concerned about how warm summer will be. If I'd wanted to live in Texas, I would have moved there!

I'm going to make some cute solar lanterns for the deck, too. BTW, I'm getting so many good ideas on Pinterest, including this recipe.Have you tried it?

Peach Lemonade Coolers
inspired by The Naptime Chef

2 medium sized, ripe peaches, peeled, halved and pitted
1/2 cup lemonade
1 ounce vodka of choice

Puree the peaches and lemonade in a blender until smooth. 
Pour vodka over ice in a rocks glass.  Top off with peach-lemonade puree.

Rules to Live By, a reminder to me

ONE. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully. 
TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other. 
THREE. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want. 
FOUR. When you say, 'I love you ,' mean it. 
FIVE. When you say, 'I'm sorry,' look the person in the eye.. 
SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married. 
SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight. 
EIGHT. Never laugh at any one's dream. People who don't have dreams don't have much. 
NINE. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely. 
TEN. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling. 
ELEVEN. Don't judge people by their relatives. 
TWELVE. Talk slowly but think quickly. 
THIRTEEN.  When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, 'Why do you want to know?' 
FOURTEEN. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.. 
FIFTEEN. Say 'bless you' when you hear someone sneeze. 
SIXTEEN. When you lose, don't lose the lesson ! 
SEVENTEEN. Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and responsibility for all your actions. 
EIGHTEEN. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.. 
NINETEEN. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it. 
TWENTY. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice. 
TWENTY-ONE. Spend some time alone.
