So I’m at the recovering at home phase, also known as the incredibly bored, feel mostly fine but probably not, trying to remind myself I have to take it easy phase. I thought I could never get bored with Netflix and lying in bed reading books, but apparently, I also like going on ridiculously long walks, drinking cocktails, and getting stuff done. Who knew? I don’t know how I’m ever going to get back up to 10 miles in a day.

Between the pain meds and the chest tubes, I’m also in serious hydration mode. I made myself another pitcher of infused water because the last thing I need right now is more boredom. This time I filled my pitcher with sweet, plump strawberries, sunny lemon, and bright basil. After a few hours of infusing, the water turns a pretty pink and has a subtle, lovely flavor. And it’s so pretty, I don’t want to put it down.

If you have any leftover fruit, you can put it in a zip top bag and stash it in the freezer. Keep the strawberries whole and cut the lemon into wedges. It’s like flavorful ice cubes. Even if you drink your whole pitcher of infused water, you can still add these to almost any glass to help keep your drink cool.
