Sweet Tea

Nectar of the South.
The best $1 spent at McDonalds.
What my boys beg from my Gammy.
What God made on the 8th day according to Hootie and the Blowfish.

All of these describe one thing....SWEET TEA!!!!

I've been wanting to paint something sweet tea related for a while, but wasn't sure what to do. Not long after the tea idea came the desire to paint something with lemons. Somehow the themes merged, and the above painting was created. It's a very appropriate painting for our Southern household. We love sweet tea, but can't justify drinking the sugar equivalent of a candy bar at every meal. So it's surely a treat for us on those days when we are handed the proverbial lemons of life!

If you know of any sweet tea addicts, this painting is for them.

While we're on the topic...Has anyone tried these?

As I stared at them in the Target check out line, I was skeptical. Iced tea mints??? Seriously? But I really think they're good. And so do all the people that they got passed to at church on Sunday (Because they wanted to try them. Not because they needed them.) They're definitely more along the lines of the Lipton artificial lemon flavored tea in a can taste instead of the real deal sweet tea flavor, but they're still good.
