(If you’re here for the A to Z Challenge, scroll down to the next post. This post is one of a regular series on things I am grateful for.)
It’s the middle of April (or just past, anyway), and today’s high was close to 90. Fortunately, last month, when we had our last heat wave, I found some of the leftover ice pops from last summer in the cupboard and stuck them in the freezer. There’s nothing quite like the joy on a child’s face when they come in flushed from the heat and you tell them they can have an ice pop to help cool off with. My husband and I are rather fond of them, too.
Yes, another modern convenience, brought by the combined might of artificial flavors, sugar, and electricity. What’s not to love?
(For the record, the current forecast is that tomorrow will be at least ten degrees cooler, and Wednesday ten degrees cooler than that. So not worried about general climate warming right now.)
What are you grateful for this Monday?
