Day to Day Life: Week 6

Picture1_zpsbd0ce18dSomewhere in my brain I decided it was a good week for a juice fast. This particular juice absolutely required me not breathing in while I drank. Kale, beets, beet greens, romaine lettuce, cucumber, celery, kiwi, meyer lemon, apples, ginger. However, it had the energy boost of about six cups of coffee.

IMG_9272_zpsa137543e I chopped off a foot of hair this week… Still long. However, the potential for dipping said hairs in bourbon, into the gas burner on our stove, in the dish water while doing dishes… has diminished almost entirely. I hadn’t had a hair cut in over two years. It was time.

First cup of coffee for the week. Black.

    I enjoy your blog. Thank you.

    • Thank YOU, Wendy!

      I hope you make it down this way sooner than later.

      We could drink some tea and you could enlighten me about how much of a better gardener you were in this home than I am! Haha – I’ll cook us a meal in exchange for some gardening knowledge : )

  2. I really like your pictures !
    Especially the one of the Pink Hillsides, what a beautiful view
