For the past two weeks, I’ve been going through something… still not sure quite yet what, but something is shifting! After my Type A Parent Conference adventure, which continues on with followups, then right into drought, and fires, and storms, and no electric (or water) for days, and now rain, there really hasn’t been any peace.
I write for other people. I take their ideas, their visions and their stories and write in their voice. I need peace to do that, thinking outside of my own head and into their’s. With the chaos and volume where I currently live, I don’t get much peace. I drink a lot of water, to stay hydrated, to fill myself up instead of mindless snacking, and because it’s good for my concentration and my skin, along with all the other benefits. It helps with my peace or makes the lack of less noticeable.
Recently, I’ve found myself drawn to naturally flavored waters. It’s a combination of color in the glass, a taste surprise in my mouth, and a refreshing difference from the usual bland glass of water. The more I explore the topic, the more ideas I find, including my newest pin to my water board, Fruit Infused Waters. They are LOVELY! I want to rub the glass across my cheek and let the sweat drip from my glass all over me… ok, maybe that’s a bit much, but really, the idea of colorful, flavorful, healthy water with texture and taste and sensual pleasure, it is really GRAND!
Check out Pinterest and here’s a fancy recipe for Watermelon and Mint “Aqua Fresca” (no sugar in mine, please) from Food Network. Share your comments, recipes and experience with us. I’m making some big changes in my life and my new found passion for infused waters bring me joy and a sense of peace, enough that I know I’m headed in the right direction.
Enjoy your favorite taste of summer in the next glass of water!
