I awoke this morning feeling like I spent yesterday in a haze. I’m not sure what’s up but I am bound and determined to bust out of it today. Maybe because I hadn’t had green juice or run since Saturday? Not enough fresh fruit yesterday? Cooped up inside an air conditioned house and no sun …

You are in luck. Today you’ve got front row seats to an epic battle. Vegetables vs. The Juicer. Place your bets. In this corner we’ve got raw fruits and vegetables.

When I wasn’t eating fruit this morning, was drinking green lemonade. Juice for two. Green Lemonade is even growing on Zak. (Maybe he should see a doctor about that.) And after juice, I did exactly what I said I wasn’t going to do. I googled. If your pupa has been very dark for over 48 …

I got up this morning to do a little downward dog in the family room, only to discover a little outward skunk wandering around on the deck. Take note that this picture was taken BEHIND the safety of a glass door. I flew up the stairs to snag Ava out of bed. Wake my sleeping …

Zak is off today to catch up on family time, so I decided today would be a good day to make up for no running for two days and get a sorta long run in too. I got up to whip up the best pre-run fuel I could think of. A Tequila Green Lemonade Sunrise. …

Today’s homeschooling adventure was just that – quite the adventure! We met up with a bunch of homeschooling families today for a Fossil Walk. We took a 10 minute hike through this creek bed to make our way to the dig site. Holy bedrock. This was the first fossil we found, which explains why I …
