Day 27! -sun, snow, hail, rain and magic!

In the back of my house it bright, blue skies, with some fluffy white clouds...the front half is grey and ominous (and this isn't a large house by any means!) --  Through the course of my juicing this morning, I looked up through the kitchen window and big, substantial flakes of snow were falling (but not sticking!) -- then a few minutes later it would be sunny, then was a rollercoaster, but nonetheless provided great visuals with the sound of my purring Samson!
Today was spinach, cucumber, celery, parsley, burdock (good for the liver!), apple and orange juices!
Tonight Paddy and Simi are taking me out for dinner once again.  Off to Re-Bar we go...a perfect place!  Lavish juice bar full of everything you could imagine, plus a place of great food for the two of them!  What a special treat!
Today was a day of re-registering Simi for gymnastics (after an unfortunate quitting of them yesterday followed by torrential regret!), trying to inquire about possible magicians for Simi's birthday party (having to scrape my jaw from the floor at the price tag!), and trying to argue with inanimate computers while I try to re-register for school.  Forms, forms, forms, links, links, links.  There is a summer applied theatre intensive I want to sign up for!
I'm just about to run off to get Simi from school -- having made her a delicious (looking!) fruit-filled rice-pudding!

Can you share a burdock root recipe? I got some but not sure what to put with it, as I've not tasted it yet.

Hi Bronwyn
Boy, your weather was really different from ours here in Texas! I was outside in the garden most of the day, weeding and planting, in a t-shirt and jeans. It was an amazingly beautiful spring day. The visuals that stick most in my mind are the irises. Awesome.

I remember once when I was a kid, and it was raining in the backyard, and not in the front. We thought that was so amazing.

Lisa --

I've just been chopping off about an inch-and-a-half of burdock and juicing it with my green date, mainly spinach, celery, cucumber, maybe some apple, orange or parsley. I think it can be quite bitter/strong if consumed in much greater quantities...if you eat cooked foods, burdock in stir frys is amazing!

Another friend of mind would blend it with tomatoes and greens, making what he called his soup juice.

Hi Bronwyn,
Thanks so much for reading my blog and leaving a comment. The ulcer? Yes, I have had them in the past - usually when I've been under stress - and I've been under pressure lately, house-hunting, so I'm not suprised. The good news is that its almost gone already - record time.
I'm looking forward to sitting down and reading through your blog this weekend, I really admire you for taking the reins health-wise.
Best wishes,
Lisa (New Zealand)

Thanks. I have to go to the store this afternoon to re-stock. After reading through your whole juice feast, I'm getting some mint to go with my blood oranges. I also think I'm going to be brave and try the grapefruit/garlic combo. Sounds weird tho.
