Tropical Smoothie

Tropical Smoothie

I think spring finally arrived!

With the nicer weather here, we have been spending time outdoors doing yard work;  a lot of yard work.  Trying to keep an eye on the twins or play campfire with Eden near the fire pit roasting pretend marshmallows, I don’t get as much done as I’d like.  I keep telling myself that everything will get done, it just might take a little longer than I would like.  Oh well, Rome wasn’t built in a day.  Somehow by the beginning of June everything is in bloom and the yard looks great.

Tropical Smoothie

On top of trying to get the yard ready for summer, Mr. Mother Thyme had surgery yesterday, so I’m the only one that can really get the work done until he is back on his feet.  No worries, he is fine.  He had his gall bladder removed but he is home and recovering fine.  Hence, the bit of an absence from posting this past week.  Between the kids, yard work, playing nurse and also keeping my house running smoothly, I am literally whipping up meals and snacks quick.  This tropical smoothie is one of them.  It is light and refreshing, perfect for the warmer months.  I love to take it on the go to have outside to sip and enjoy while running around the yard or just relaxing and enjoying the nicer weather outdoors.
