Thankful Thursday VI

I am thankful for watermelon.  I can’t get enough!  Unlike some fruit, you can only get watermelon for a short period of each year and thankfully it is that time of the year.  Every time I go to the store, I seek out the cardboard box of melons and begin knocking on a every melon as I hold the honker up to my ear like a child trying to hear the ocean in a seashell.  There aren’t too many things better than cutting open a melon when you get home to discover it is perfectly ripe and sweet.  I have to admit, I have been struggling with having to share my watermelon with Keith.   I consider putting a good portion of the watermelon in his morning smoothie as my good deed of the week.  I recently discovered the deliciousness just happens to pair perfectly with the mint growing on my fire escape.  After writing this, I think I will pick up a watermelon on my way home from working in Southern New Jersey this week.

  1. I love watermelon too Clara. Have you tried putting cubes of it in the blender & adding ice & fresh lime juice. It is so refreshing!

    • I have not but I have a new melon sitting on my counter so I will. I made Keith a smoothie with watermelon, strawberries, banana and mint. He was a fan.
