Just looking at all the green makes me feel better. To me, this glass looks like hope and new life m. It looks like it's saying, hey spring is 65 days away! (That's right, I'm counting).
Since I've been sick, I've been wanting more juice, and I recently acquired a blender thanks to a friend, so first thing on the agenda was to make a green juice. Monday was the blight it usually is, I was fighting sleep all afternoon and trying to ignore the fact that my face was pulsating pain with what appears to be some sort of sinus infection, but I said you know what! I'm going to have a great evening with my daughter tonight.
Just so you have the full picture, usually, my mantra is just lets make it through to bed! And this winter has been getting me so good that I'm not even keeping up with my to-do lists. But this particular day, it was a good day, because I didn't just survive (which is just as noteworthy), I got things done and had a lovely few hours with my daughter in between a rough work day and all of my chores before bed. She was so funny and talkative all evening and we had fun working together. After our juice, we made tuna patties, broccoli and salty baked potatoes for dinner and then I made breakfast sausages for the week, green beans for the next day and chicken and rice porridge for later on in the week, so you see, I was almost back to full form. (But then later on that night, I got to bed to late, Sloane had some sort of nightmare situation in the middle of the night, I didn't get enough sleep, I was late to work the next day and my sinus infection is in full form today, so you see, some days it's a victory, other days it's survival).
When I got home, we took Rusty on a walk. It was raining, it was totally dark and it was cold, but Sloane and I held hands, she was a trooper and Rusty got to prance and pull us around to his heart's delight. This is the three of us when we came back in. Sloane is so good at giving him hugs!
Then we got to work on our juice. I chopped and she helped me put everything in the blender. Our juice had: 1 cucumber, 2 handfuls of kale, 2 apples, 1 inch of ginger, half a lemon juice, 1 cup of water and a few grapes.
She was all, wow! When she saw the fruit and vegetables turn into pulp in the blender.
We were quite pleased with ourselves.
