More juice!

Last night our friend from Cornell (who works with Bobby) came over to hang out. We watched Dexter (love this show!), played with the kitties (who are mostly getting along – they’re doing well), and made some juice. I just got into Dexter this weekend and I’m almost done the first season (it’s on Netflix streaming).

This juice had…

  • 1 fuji apple
  • 1 asian pear
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • bunch of mint leaves
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 3 big stalks of celery

It made 3 decent sized glasses. It was so good. Griff liked it a lot, and was surprised at how sweet it was even though it was bright green. We served it over ice.

This morning I made a slight variation on my first juice from yesterday. It had…

10 morning juice 300x225 More juice!

  • romaine leaves (1/3 huge head)
  • 4 celery stalks
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • mint leaves
  • 2 knobs ginger
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 granny smith apple

I love the way juice separates in layers. It’s so pretty.

Before my juice this morning I found a posting on Craigslist for a used mini-trampoline (rebounder). I drove over, tied it to the top of my car, and brought it home. It was only $10. It’s 4 feet in diameter. I rebounded for 30 minutes while watching something trashy on E! and followed it up with 10 minutes of yoga-like stretching.

Words

  • juice – first recorded around 1290AD, this word comes from Old French (and Latin) jus = ”broth, sauce, juice.” The PIE base was *yus- (also appears in Sanskrit as yus- = “broth” and Lithuanian juse = “fish soup”). The meaning “electricity” was first recorded in 1896.
  • rule – from Latin regula = “straight stick, bar, ruler, pattern.” It appeared in 1225AD. Before that, the word for rule was wealdan (Old English… same root as wield).

I decided to start another blog called A Love Of Words. I’d love it if you want to stop on over, but no pressure. It’s going to be my place for talking about linguistics, words, and language. If you’re into that stuff definitely check it out.

What’s your favorite TV show? Or what are you watching now? I’m glad I have 2 more seasons of Dexter to catch up on… I love finding new shows to watch.

P.S. Shelby made my homemade ketchup… have you?

    I should get a juicer, your juices look so yummy :) I think I might check out craigslist for a mini trampoline now…or a regular sized trampoline. Haha. My favorite TV shows right now are trashy teen dramas like Degrassi and The Secret Life of the American Teenager and Greek. I know, I watch bad TV.

    Frozen cantaloupe sounds really good! I like frozen grapes too, but if you say that cantaloupe is the best, I’ll have to try it ;)

    I am not watching a tv show right now, but my all time favorite is Friends.

    OH fav show…sorry I am still reveling in your new site!

    I have to say..I have seen Dexter and I can’t watch it. Sociopaths F.R.E.A.K. me out and even though he’s a psuedo “good guy” …kinda…sorta…. the look in his eye…I know all too well and I just can’t watch it.

    boo

    My husband loves the movie Clockwood Orange. Same thing. He showed it to me years ago and I HATED it. He thinks it’s funny sometimes how much I can’t handle it…but he didn’t live in my shoes a long time ago either.

    MY favorite show these days is of course, Star Trek…any series…we just started Voyager

    I have no idea what is on mainstreem TV…OH I liked Burn Notice…and CSI…

    but not a regular watcher!

    glad you found a show you like tho! it’s always fun to look forward to something fun at the end of the day to relax and share frozen Cantaloupe!

    mmmmm

    Glad Bo and Cous are getting along!

    I love Gossip Girl.

    The rebounder thing cracks me up because my Mom had a little trampoline like that when I was growing up. It seems so early 90s to me! It also sounds WAY fun!

    I had no idea Dexter was on netflix! I hear great things about it.
    I also have been scheming to “borrow” my parents juicer (indefinitely) for a while now, I need to get on that next time I’m visiting them.
    Congrats on the new kitty and the rebounder! I’m always looking for one but haven’t found it. I did find a blender/ processor this week that I want to go pick up though. Very excited for new food creations :)

    your juices makes getting back to US a little more attractive than it actually is. :D really looking forward to make fresh juice everyday for me and my parents! :D
    And I hope I can find a good deal of trampoline too!!!
    Favorite show? I was a big Sex and City fan, later I hooked with Prison Break and now nothing. :)

    Juice is so pretty :D So cool about the rebounder! I completely forgot to ask at my appointment today…gah. I don’t know how they fit with food combining, but frozen peas are amazing!

    Favourite TV show is Scrubs, without a doubt. Though, admittedly, I am a SUCKER for Sabrina The Teenage Witch and The Simpsons :D

    Cornell as in the school? Are you in NY?!

    Omigod my bf made me watch Dexter on Saturday and I started to like it. We are almost at the end. I think the guy his sister is dating is the killer! Some parts of it are gross/scary.
