A cool summer tip / Ett coolt sommartips

What do you do when it's 83F in the shade? 1) You are surprised and happy since you live in Sweden. 2) You realise that you do not own an ice cube tray. Oh no! What do you do? The answer: Find a lemon or some other fruit. Cut it in small pieces and freeze them! It's quick, good, decorative and good for you! Then sit on your recently prettified balcony and enjoy it all.
Vad gör man när det är 28 grader i skuggan? 1) Blir förvånad och glad eftersom man bor i Sverige. 2) Inser att man inte äger en isbitsgörare. Åh nej! Vad gör man då? Svar: Leta reda på en citron (eller någon annan frukt). Skär i små bitar och frys dem! Det går snabbt, är gott, dekorativt och nyttigt! Sitt därefter på din nyligen tillsötade balkong och njut av det hela.

Tomorrow I'm going on a short trip and I plan to put these ice fruits in a bottle of water and bring it. The above drink is Schweppes lemon soda.
I morgon åker jag på en liten tur och jag kommer då att ha med mig de här isfrukterna i en flaska vatten. Drycken här ovanför är Schweppes citronläsk.

It is 95 F and that puts the heat index (feels like) over 100. I love Schweppes! Going to freeze some limes!!!!!

whew! I just stepped off my treadmill, and could definately go one of these refreshing drinks! Looks sooo good.
By the way, I've added another post after the one you commented on (Re:Kookaburras) This will let you hear how they 'sing':

Good Morning!
This looks very cool and refreshing! What a great idea! And it doesn't dilute your drink, just makes it taste better!

Wishing you a happy trip today,

The weather here in Los Angeles has been on the cool side, but starting today, we're going into Heat Wave! Thanks so much for your suggestion! Healthy, lo-cal, and yet sounds wonderful! Will try it soon.

We had some really hot days in the Netherlands too... too much for me! I love the idea of the iced fruit tubes!!!
