We had a terrific storm last evening. Around 11:00 PM, I heard the thunder at the same moment at the lightening flashed, and a loud cracking noise outside the bedroom window. Upon inspection in the morning I found the gardenia toppled over, but thankfully unharmed and a large branch of the tree in back struck by lightening. If there hadn't been torrential downpours at the same time, the house could well have caught fire.
Know what would cheer me this summer Monday? A Blue Hawaiian. No, I don't have any curacao in the house (who keeps that on hand?) so I'll just have to make due with a blue Hawaiian dress. Oh the suffering I must endure.

I'm still experimenting with trousers. I've owned this pair a couple decades, and I still can't find anything to go with them! They're a sort of brownish grey seersucker. I do keep hope that somewhere there exists a pair of trousers that will fit the way I'd like, and be in a reasonable colour. I'm starting to think the only way that will happen is if I make them myself. I hope not, I hate sewing trousers.

Do I really need curacao to make a Blue Hawaiian? What would happen if I just stuck blue food colouring and orange extract in vodka? Eh? Maybe? I'll let you know how it goes.
