In addition to our love of smoothies we are playing around with juicing. This quart sized glass contained the juice of 1 cucumber, 4 stalks celery, 6 kale leaves, 1 apple, 1 pear, 1 inch of ginger, 1/2 lemon. No water added, just straight up fruit and veggie juice. With a huge garden being planted we thought this would be a great way to keep up with all those leafy greens and other veggies. And it just might be the way for me to fall in love with beets. I'll eat them, but I don't love them. I want to love them.
Dressing up the porches a little bit this week. This basket I believe was a roadside find a few years back. I feel a connection to the person that repaired the handle with a piece of a Maxwell House coffee can. Oh, how I'd love to talk to them, learn from them. This is the kind of resourcefulness I hope to get better and better at as the years roll on.
I slipped into a funk at some point during the day. No reason, well maybe a lot of reasons. But I decided to prioritize stillness with a walk in the healing woods and it made all the difference. Apple blossoms smell amazing.
And in a moment of deep wisdom (written partly in jest, of course) I said yes to take out. Stillness and take out, they turned the day around beautifully.
