Cherry Banana Smoothie

I've been out of town for a few days (sorry for the lack of posts), and it's been great.  Really, really great.  I got to spend time with my family and Austin's family.  I visited with old friends, ate really good food, and watched a lot of fireworks.
And now, it's back to eating at my desk, staring at a computer screen, and missing the drier, cooler air of home.

Everyone always says you need a vacation after a vacation and I've always kind-of thought that was greedy.  Now that I'm home though, all I want is to not have an agenda.  I want to spend my mornings slowly drinking my coffee and reading a book.  When people ask me, "What are you going to do today?"  I want to be able to say, "I don't know - don't have any plans."
I guess I could pretend like I'm on vacation by enjoying a fruity smoothie and taking my time to get ready in the morning.  I know, I know - it's not the same!  Hope you had a great 4th of July (if you're an American reader and know what I'm talking about)!!

    When you retire, you will be able to do just that if you so desire.

    1. Thank you! Please let me know what you think. Normally, I'm not a huge cherry fan but when they're fresh it's a whole different story!
