simple is beautiful

Ice, Ice Baby

Lordy it's hot!  Temperatures were 100+ this past weekend.  The pool feels like a bath tub.  Yuck.  What does a girl do to keep cool? 

I did some digging around on the web and just looking at these images made me feel a little cooler.

I found all sorts of inspiration for flavored ice cubes...

Please don't forget about pets in this heat.  Like us, they need extra water and shelter from the heat.  How fun are these frozen treats for pets?

Place treats in bucket, fill with water, and freeze.  This should keep them cool and out of trouble for a while ;).

  2. These are the most beautiful popsicles Ive ever seen!! the flower-sicle is too pretty to eat!! A warning about the yogurt dots- eat them as soon as they come out of the freezer, as they melt super fast!
