Happy Spring!

Today is a beautiful day here in Memphis, Tennessee.  The temperature is in the low 70s, there is very little humidity, and a nice breeze is steadily blowing.  So why am I stuck in the house today, doing spring cleaning?  I guess I am trying (no, I KNOW I am trying) to be as ready as I possibly can be for my surgery.  It is scheduled for a week from Monday, and I know I'll be down for the count as far as housework is concerned for quite some time, which is kind of freaking me out. So ...I do a little, then sit a little, then do a little more, and so on.  I long for the day when I can do what I want to do without pain and numbness, and fervently hope that that day comes.  

I have been juicing for the past week.  I watched a couple of food documentaries a couple weeks ago on Netflix, and they really struck a chord with me.  Food Matters and Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.  They were both very interesting and very motivating.  I had an ancient Cuisinart juicer (and I do mean ancient), but it just couldn't really handle the greens and hard veggies.  So my dearest got me a brand new juicer from his favorite go-to place, Amazon.  I love it!  It's a Breville, and it's super fast and perfect for my needs.  So, I'm juicing things like kale, spinach, romaine, celery, carrots, bell peppers, apples, pears, oranges, and pineapples in various combinations.  And finding them all very tasty.

More later --


  1. I have never tried juicing my veggies and fruit but after reading your post just might have to give it a try.

    God bless.

  2. Jackie, I think you would like it. Everything tastes so fresh!
