Day 2/3 - juicing for nutrition

Yesterday's juice was wonderful, the arugula a nice surprise. Today's surprise ingredient is Mint! Fresh mint, oranges, carrots, green apples. Definitely a different type of juice with more fruit than veg, and utterly enjoyable. My first impression was of an orange mojito. Yum. I also picked a few extra oranges and juiced them afterwards to flavour the water today. You know, just change things up a little bit.

Last night was the recently typical fourth of July; big banks & shaking dogs. I have had so many awesome 4ths, and so many filled with drama, I am happy to sit them out for a bit. Next year I will be ordering doggie downers for the event - it's just too hard on them.

As for me, I was absorbed in the shows and movies I had taped in preparation and indulged in some chips and onion dip. And two Applegate hot dogs; one with tomatoes, red onions & jalapeno and one just plain with ketchup. Before dark I had driven though for an oreo blast and that was my last indulgence for the day. I am regretting the chips this morning, my hands swollen and my trigger finger annoying me no end.  If M keeps working I will be able to save up to have the surgery later this year.

It's going to dip back into the 80's for the next few days, thank heavens, and I am looking forward to getting some fresh air. It was so lovely in the back yard this morning picking oranges; I am inspired to keep working back there to get it cleared out and have a nice place to hang out in the mornings and evenings.

There is always something beautiful and positive offered by the earth each day, no matter how small or fleeting, and I am thankful for them all. Oh, which reminds me, the moon was amazing last night. It was about 11:30 and I poked my head out the door to see what the temperature was and there she was, shining like a harvest moon all orange and golden and glamorous. After adoring her for a bit more I took my frantic panting dog and headed to bed, to keep her company until the booming ceased for the night.
