Lincoln is getting to that lovely age when he doesn't want to nap anymore. So instead of doing my upper body work out right now like I want to be, I will blog. Good thing I quit my job so I will have plenty of time to work out and run tonight.
So besides my lovely little new laptop I got some fun things for Christmas. My mom got me a juicer. (Prompted by my fascination with the movie, "The Gerson Miracle.")
Oh, the excitement this appliance has been causing around my house! Our first concoction was an apple/carrot/tangelo blend. We have gotten a bit more daring--adding celery and blueberries and bananas. The kids can't wait to come home from school today to get their after-school snack of homemade juice! Today Lincoln and I made them carrot/banana/apple/peach/pineapple/blueberry/strawberry/tangelo...I think that is all. After you make the juice, you end up with the dry pulp, which we have been mixing into our garden beds (we need to get a composter!) Today I also tried putting the pulp in the dehydrator to see if we can make fruit leather. I feel so domestic.
Here are the kids watching Ryan make our second batch of juice. They are like this every time we make it!
