Good morning on this beautiful spring morning of Day 51!
It's such an inspiring morning out there, that I woke up and headed out for a 45 minute walk, down to the ocean, looped around to a rocky point, and then wandered back past a wild Garry Oak Park, where the last of the wildflowers were in bloom! Plus, I saw three bunny rabbits, saw beautiful magnolia trees in bloom, saw sailboats with their great big spinackers up, and a whole sleugh of tide pools!
This was quite in contrast to the freak snow fall we had yesterday -- SNOW IN APRIL!?! -- none of stuck, but it definitely put a damper on the day's planned outdoor activities in celebration of Earth Day. The annual Earth Day march and rally/gathering is on the top of my 'must do's' list -- but I, too avoided it because of the miserable weather. I did, however go to the VIVA FEST (Vancouver Island Vegetarian Association) gathering, where there were a bunch of vegetarian-associated tables, booths and displays. My friends Hezzie Cunliffe and Ariel Rubin had a table set up for Café Bliss ... the organic live food juice bar that Hezzie is opening in a couple of months. The girls were busy juicing up wheatgrass, apple juicy concoctions for free for everyone! What a hit!
From there, I headed to our weekly JuiceLuck gathering, which was lovely as all four of us were able to attend! (video will be posted at www.globaljuicefeast.com) -- Ayrie, Constanze, Robyn and myself. I brought a juice I particularly liked: red swiss chard, parsley, half a pineapple, a couple blood oranges and watermelon and a lot of mint! Really easy going and refreshing!
So, I'm stoked for the coming week - a colonic tomorrow, accupuncture on Wednesday and then some acting training someone asked me to help them with on Tuesday! Hoorah for juice!
Ooooh...and I was also loaned David Wolfe's book The Sunfood Diet Success System! Fabulous stuff!
(I'm including some photos of both gatherings!)
