I've been sick....again.
REALLY sick, again. Today I finally was able to get out of bed, dress, and work for about 2 hours. I've been down for over a week this time. Hubby took me to the Dr. last Friday and he talked about putting me in the hospital again. I refused, a polite "no thank you". HA. Left there with 4 prescriptions and a promise to return on Monday. We went back yesterday and since I am improved, he said, "you dodged a bullet this time".
Say a little prayer for me......or a big one. I'm now soooo behind in my work and trying not to freak about it as I recover.

....more sadness. Today my daughter-in-law's father passed away. She had gone to their house to drop off the grandies for a visit. Our granddaughter Sophie, tried to rouse her "Pop-pop" from his sleep on the couch but he was gone.....too young to be gone.

While everyone grieved, Sophie, who is four, proceeded to tell everyone that Pop-pop went to heaven and she listed everyone that is already there that she knew...including some baby bunnies, Jesus and God. Sophie told everyone that one day we will all be together in Heaven. "Out of the mouths of babes"......

Please remember this family in prayer, Bill left behind a devastated wife and 3 daughters.

Oh, the things we do....

...to be healthy. Today I started my green smoothies. Hubby and I shopped over the weekend for all the Organic fruits and veggies that we would need for one week. OUCH! Lots of $$ but if it makes a difference it's money well spent. I made my hubbys' smoothie from romaine lettuce, banana, and 1/2 a honey dew melon. Tasted weird....kinda like a melony salad! I thought I'd go for a more savory one. OH MY GOODNESS!!! I'm struggling to get this down. A whole quart of this dark green, thick, odd smelling smoothie. The recipe for mine contained the following: Kale, celery, garlic, parsley, lime juice, avocado, and a pepper. I'm gonna have to break this up and drink it in "shifts" throughout the day.....ugh.

Tomorrow I'm making one with mangoes and bananas for SURE!

Green smoothies???!!!!!

Yes, you read that right! I'm reading this book, I started it last night and I'm half way thru it. I'll finish it tonight. Very interesting read, makes sense too.
I'm wanting to improve my health, feel better, look better, etc. Being a vegetarian, I think I might be able to incorporate this into my diet without too much trouble.......I think. The idea of a smoothie made with such things as kale, or parsley, spinach, cilantro, lettuces, etc is a little daunting. But, you can add fruit.
While vacationing in Mexico, I had one of these smoothies and it contained not only the greens but watermelon and orange and carrot juice. It was pretty tasty though the others at my table thought I was insane for drinking the "seaweed looking" drink at breakfast!
So, I'm on my quest, to feel 19 again! HA!
I'll let you know in a few weeks the verdict at which point you can all run out to find the book....or not.
We'll see, wish me luck....or well!

Happy Birthday!

WOW! Happy Birthday to my sweet Gram! She's 102 years young!
She passed her artistic side to me, gave me my love for gardening, and helped to shape all of us into the strong, independent women that we are today.

She's living proof that a healthy lifestyle=long life!!
