Summer is all about lazy long days….atleast that’s the perception I had. For a stay-at-home mom that’s the best time of the year. No early morning schedules, no dropping or picking up. Not really! Summer is really the most busy time of the year, I see myself working like an ant and all the dreams I saw on winter snowy days of basking on the deck is really not happening. I feel myself chasing the next thing on the to-do list. I do have to admit I waste a lot of time browsing on Pinterest and FB. So starting last week I have started managing my time better. So far it has been working well. My dad was a great proponent of discipline, more self than imposed. It definitely boils down to that. Will keep you posted on how that goes.

Talking of stay-at-home mom I have a funny incident to narrate. A few years back I was at a friend’s place and she had invited a few people for dinner. As we were getting to know each other, I thought I hit it well with one of the other girls, till she asked me where I worked. I told her I was a  stay-at-home mom, and even before I had finished my sentence she had abandoned me for better  ‘intellectual’  company. I thought it was hilarious, I don’t think I have every felt the need to define myself or put myself in a box. It’s strange how some people are so quick to categorize you and label you. I am sure I was no use to her as a Linkedin contact….lol! We tend to run in pursuit of  who we are that we loose ourselves. I really hope my running is only about chasing my to-do list…

4 cups water
2 tsp hibiscus tea
1 cup blueberries - frozen or fresh
4-6 tbsp sugar in the raw (to taste)
1/4 cup chia seeds

Boil the water and brew some hibiscus tea. Let it cool. Soak the chia in water (takes about 30-45 min to swell up).

Pure the blueberries and strain - so you have nothing but a smooth puree.

Mix the chia, tea, blueberry puree and sugar. Add some ice if you care. Serve chilled.

I just love the color and the taste is refreshing, I love to try different kinds of tea - this recipe is a keeper.
