Yesterday I had this green juice:
1 head of romaine lettuce
2 apples (Golden Delicious)
1 lemon (I do take the skin off although others do not...I find it hurts the back of my throat if I leave it on but you can try it both ways and see what works for you. Lots of goodness in the pith!
Yesterday I also had LOTS of water and LOTS of sunshine. Finally we had a hot, sunny day in June. This June has actually been the coldest (and wettest, in my opinion) June in recorded history here in the lower mainland!
The sunshine, juicing and good feelings were flowing yesterday!
Today the rain is pouring (again) and the juice is still flowing and my energy is lower than I would have thought but my body is in detox mode and with the things I've experienced since my last mini juicing episode, it is a wonder.
This is the last week we have all of our students. We're writing report cards, finalizing stuff for next year and doing some clean up in the classrooms. We're also writing a report and reference for our student teacher so things are extremely busy. I'm looking forward to the beginning of summer when I can focus on the kids, the house, the yard and my new business ventures!
I actually spent about 80% of the day yesterday, outside. A large portion of that was getting the front garden looking great...a little curb appeal. We have lived here five years and I haven't done anything to get the yard looking great. Well, with my mom's help we got all the new plants in the ground.
I was digging the whole for the hydrangea and came across one huge boulder! We weren't sure how big it was and my mom said just to give up and we'd plant the bush further back. That wasn't what I was thinking though. Dig, Dig, Dig. Dig, Dig, Dig. Now it was a matter of principle! I wanted to see how big this boulder was. Well, it budged and that's all I needed to keep going and then I wedged it until I could get my hands in there and pull it out!
It was a beautiful, huge boulder! I loved it's shape and now it sits between the hydrangea and another plant in the garden. A reminder that when moving towards a goal to never give up because the end result can be amazingly beautiful! In fact, my husband said that when he arrived home this rock was one of the first things that caught his eye and he thought it was perfect.
In green goodness, Eat Raw and Live Well!
