January 17 through the 23rd is when we celebrate Fresh Squeezed Juice Week. Orange juice, lemonade, and grapefruit juice all taste better fresh squeezed. And fresh lime juice is a key component of many cocktails and desserts. All are rich in vitamin C to help you ward off colds and flus at this time of year. That's why this week is National Fresh Squeezed Juice Week. So slice, squeeze, and enjoy!
One of my favorite things to make is fresh lemonade. and I often have some in the refrigerator. It’s a very simple method that takes very little time and is easy to do. Simply squeeze the juice of 2 or 3 lemons, it depends on their size, into a picture add 1 cup of sugar and add water and stir till the sugar is dissolved . I’m sure there are better recipes available, but this is the way I do it and it’s always refreshing and good for you too.
If you have a lemon, make lemonade
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
When life gives you lemons, be grateful you received at least something.
Old sayings such as making lemonade from lemons began and keep on going because they are the essence of what it takes to face life’s challenges.
What often seems like the worst thing in the world can very often turn out to be the best thing that could have happened to us. We never know just how the cookie will crumble. When life gives you lemons, then there are lots of possibilities to make the best out of them
The transformation of sour lemon into sweet lemonade represents complete turning around. Just like a frown can transform your face when you SMILE! We all know, or should know, that a smiles always makes us feel better.
Vitamin C is so important, especially this time of year so squeeze those lemons and make lemonade. Eating your oranges is not a bad option either.
I hope you all have a fantastic Friday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Our happiness is certainly mixed in with the tragedies of life. You have to find the lemonade. You have to find the silver lining in the middle of everything that happens in life.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for this past year and have now reached my 1000 gifts. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
