Today’s Recipe and Location: Watermelon Sangria
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog
Here’s another alcoholic beverage for y’all as we near The Fourth of July holiday. I have to say that this looks so great in the container. Oh, if I only liked the taste of wine or champagne. The watermelon aspect of it interests me and it is definitely something I would serve my guests.
I am writing this on May 8th, and this week has been wonderful. This is Teacher Appreciation week and the parents and kids have gone all out for me. My desk is filled with flowers and I have taken home gardening tools, flower seeds, chocolate, notepads, and more. One of the parents actually brought me in a Chipotle lunch. That is so above and beyond that I was overwhelmed. It is refreshing to be so thankful for the kindness of others nowadays. Life is really good today.
When I was in first grade my parents bought a home in St. Charles. At the time, we were living in Aurora. My Mom really wanted me to finish first grade so she asked her sister, Doris, and brother-in-law, Clarence, if I could stay with them and finish the school year. My cousin, Jerry, walked me to first grade every day at Immanuel Lutheran School in Aurora. Jerry was in an older grade at the same school. I felt so special because Jerry was so kind to me when we were kids. Thanks a bunch, Jerry. You’re the best!
