The house is clean. Did you hear me?
THE HOUSE IS CLEAN!!!!
Well . . . . .except for those papers that were crammed into the armoire. . . .and the bills shoved into the bread box. . . .and ummmmm all that crap under the bed.
Ooooh, look. Now there’s the matter of a dead lizard at the front door. Good Lord. Shelbi says it’s not dead. It’s tail is just severed and wiggling around crazily. Phew! That’s a relief.
What’s that? The doorbell just rang. It’s the neighbors kid. Here to play. Lovely.
I think I need a drink. A stiff one.

Yup, I’m gonna pour this bad boy down my throat, just as soon as the hubby gets home. Peaches are in season, and I think this drink couldn’t be more deserved.
1 cup of peach puree ( you can place fresh peaches in a blender, then press through a sieve to discard the solids. . . . .or you could just use baby food peaches, I know it sounds crazy but. . . .I promise it’s just as good.)
The juice of one lime
1/4 cup sugar
12 mint leaves
2/3 cup rum
1 1/3 cup Sparkling Water
1. In a large pitcher combine lime juice, sugar, and mint. Using the back of a spoon, crush the mint leaves to release their oils. Stir entire mixture to make sure that the sugar is dissolved.
2. Add peach puree and rum. Stir until combined.
3. Pour sparkling water into pitcher. Serve over ice.
