two words: fruit water.
jeremy started making this last week when indoor temperatures topped out at 91 degrees. simple and so refreshing--plus a great way to use up fruit that is looking a little sad. i haven't been able to get enough. we add cucumber, orange, blueberries, halved grapes, peaches--whatever's hanging around in the fruit bowl or fridge, and just fill up the carafe each time we pour a glass so that it's never empty. i think it's best to replace the fruit every 1-2 days.
lucy likes it too--especially helping me put the cut fruit into the carafe. then trying to fish it back out with her little paws. what fun, right?
lucy's wearing a made-by-me jacket from amy karol's bend-the-rules sewing. it came out a little bit big (jeremy calls it her kung-fu jacket) but i think it's still really cute. and soft--made from a leftover cut of bamboo fleece that i found when cleaning out my sewing studio. it literally took about 10 minutes to make--the hems are purposely left unfinished to give what karol calls a "deconstructed look." i dig.
tomorrow in my thrift shopping i'll be searching for an old cashmere sweater to make one for the new baby, in a very wee size. perhaps as part of a coming home outfit!
