Royal Babies and Today's Key

I'm not a "Royal Watcher" by any stretch of the imagination, but I couldn't help watching the wedding of William and Kate and now the buzz around the birth of the new Prince and waiting for a peek at him.  It was funny to me that my first peek came via a Tweet from a scrapbooker I follow, not via some news feed.  So cute.  So tiny.  LOL, my thought as the new little family came out of the hospital to all those screaming people was "you're gonna freak the baby out."  And sure enough, what the press likes calling his "wave" was his startled response to all the noise.  

Aaannndd, that was the excitement for me yesterday, amid folding of all the laundry and getting dinner served up.  Yeah, not much getting done on the homefront.  It's the heat. . .yes, that's it . . .the heat.  It's sucking all the energy to do anything right out of me.  I did edit, over a pile of folded shorts, two takes on my "Summer Routine" assignment.  A lot of sleeping-in (What's with my mummy-of-a-son???  That's just creepy.) and then the regular stuff that no season seems to change.  

Let's at least keep you rolling along.  Here's today's key for this week's Drinks challenge.

I'm having a hard time mixing Water with Sangria... lets see if I can come up with something by Sunday.

Hmmm...I can see a wave add a border or background. Then citrus as accents-behind photos or as corners. The pattern could even be in.the photos.

Looking forward to what you come up with.
