Juicing, Painting, and cooking chicken.

I don't think it is so much the "juice" itself that makes one feel so good, but the concentration of fruits and vegetables that one would otherwise not eat. Goodness knows that without today's smoothie, I would never have consumed an apple, spinach, carrots, beets and pineapple!

No matter, I feel wonderful. I feel nourished inside and out, grateful, and peaceful. Is it the juice/smoothie? Who knows, but I like it. Tomorrow I am sure I'll have another and we'll see from there. Thank you, Rawesome!

And to top it off, she saved yesterday's juicing pulp for my chickens/compost. Rock. On.


The dresser project is SO CLOSE to being finished. There are still a couple of question marks, mostly how I am going to attach the piano hinges to the drawer fronts. We'll see how that goes. I still need to varnish the body of it, but that's easy using wipe-on poly.

And yes, that is a canning jar with a Cuppow! lid that turns it into, essentially, a sippy cup. Love that thing - now I just need to make a jacket for the jar.


And for dinner? Crock-pot Chicken with Rosemary and Lemon:

* truffle salt
* pepper
* several cloves of garlic
* 2 lemons
* fresh rosemary (mine is sundried, but still on the stem)
* whole chicken, skinned

Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper to taste. Stuff garlic into cavity. Quarter one lemon and stuff into cavity. Place chicken in crock-pot. Drape rosemary sprigs across top. Cook on high for four hours, or cook on high one hour then low for six.


Oh, and I did manage to buy lumber for framing the chicken coop. But as of right now, it is still in the truck and the floor is still not nailed to the joists. Tomorrow's job is waiting for me.


Peace, love and lizard kisses,
