Sounds like summer fun to me

Alcoholic popsicles! And I spotted $1.99 pop sets for sale at Ikea
Though I have to admit I love the wooden stick better
Campari Citrus Popsicles
makes 10-15, depending on the size

Grapefruit Pops
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
3 cups grapefruit juice
1/2 cup Campari

Orange Pops
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
3 cups orange juice
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 cup Campari

Mix the water and sugar together in a small pan over a low heat, and bring up to boil until the sugar dissolves. Allow the simple syrup to boil for 4 minutes, remove from heat and cool (makes a little over 1 cup).

Combine the citrus juice and Campari and add 1 cup of the cooled syrup. Adjust to taste: for the grapefruit pops, you may want to add a tablespoon or two extra syrup if you prefer them less tart. Remember, the mixture will taste slightly sweeter in liquid form than it does when frozen.

Pour into popsicle molds and freeze at least 8 hours or overnight. To remove, run the molds quickly under hot water, and gently pull out the pops.
Cute couch- looks like it goes together into one long piece. $250 OBO

Anyone want a couch like mine but better cause it probably has not been messed up by cats?
These plates are sold at the co-op but I've never noticed. Made only of fallen leaves and water. "They're non-toxic, biodegradable, compostable, durable, lightweight, convenient and downright stylish." Smart!

I really love this. No suprise I'm sure. Prints combined with embroidery. It's a great series by Laura Mckellar. Her mixing in of animals kills me every time.

If you're in the Sacramento area you should go to Tower and see the documentary 'Exit Through The Gift Shop'. Thumbs up.
