Amazing, isn’t it, that a confirmed cooked food addict could be celebrating three years eating raw food today! And it’s ME! That makes it even more incredible.
This is how I spent my special day.
Instead of bounding out of bed, I luxuriated for 15 minutes after the alarm went off. After I had my devotions and took my shower, I did some eight-second-looks with the camera and tripod to post at a later date. Not tonight. I need to get to bed at a reasonable hour.
No exercising. The pictures took up that time.
I fixed more than a quart of OJ blended with pineapple (super yummy!) and a banana/romaine/agave nectar smoothie to take to work with me along with some bananas, dates and cantaloupe for later. I’d gone out the door and was ready to sail down the mountain when I couldn’t find my car keys. I came back in and searched for what seemed like ‘way too long and was praying all the while. I went back outside to look in the car again with no luck. I’d started back in to call and let the girls know I’d be late when I glanced at the ground beside the steps and there they were! I was on my way.
Circumstances decreed that I was the bank/post office person today. That was fine with me. It doesn’t take long but it gets me out of the house.
After I got back to the hospital, I had my OJ/pineapple and a little later, I worked on the smoothie. For lunch I mashed up three bananas with some cut up organic Medjool dates. It was really good.
Along about 2:30, I took my cantaloupe outside and ate it on the patio. When I’d finished that, I had a few minutes left so I did a lap around the buildings.
I left at 3:30 to take the mail and that was the end of my work day. I’d only told one person it was my anniversary. People think I’m crazy, anyway, so no use reinforcing the perception.
Home and ready for a celebration! I ate watermelon (about three quarts) and a salad. My special thing was to put a little bit of EVOO on the salad and I had some Bubbies pickles. Life on the edge, for sure! I did sit down and watch “The Next Food Network Star” that I’d recorded night before last. Big whoop!
Twinkle has been fed and the dishes are washed. Time for beddy-bye! Good night and congratulations to me!
