Cantaloupe Martini

It’s been a while since I’ve had a good cry.

Without going into too much detail this morning my mom and I had a little spat. It transpired, somewhere in-between brewing a pot of coffee, checking my email, and working out. Seems like it’s all a blur now.

I managed to hold it in most of the morning, up until I got in the shower, where I proceeded to let my frustration out as I cried balled, like Ted after reuniting Mary with Brett Favre in There’s Something About Mary. I really love my mother more than words can describe. But, I will be the first to admit she can really be a bit much to handle.

I think the burst of fury was mainly due to the fact that she needs a breath of fresh air —I know she misses Mexico. Now that she has recuperated from her surgery; I’ve noticed a bit more resentment, complaining, and an increased amount of sourpussness. Which all happen to be in her case, tell-tell signs that she needs to go spend some time with her brothers, sister, and girlfriends back in Mexico.

Frozen Cantaloupe & Spirits

So for her sake and mine we both decided it was time for her to take a little “vacation” to give us both a little breath of fresh air…

I’ve been missing my spark for a while and hope I’m able to get it back quickly. I think this cocktail is a good start don’t you? Made with fresh cantaloupe which has been diced and frozen then blended with a few key ingredients, it’s bound to help anyone get their mojo back!

Here’s to a breath of fresh air, and a fresh blogging start…
