Hello out there. Things have been a little wacky over here. We had a crazy storm a couple week ago that knocked out the power in South Minneapolis. Lots of downed trees. And downed cars. As you can see. Harley Rae was having a grand old time exploring through the wreckage. We lost power at the shop. But only overnight. So it didn’t affect us too much. Though I was off the internet for a few days. When I came back, I heard a rumor that we were closing. Ha! Pretty funny. I’m happy to report that we aren’t closing. I, personally, went through a pretty rough patch this year. But it’s gotten a lot better. I think a lot of it has to do with the pettles helping me find more balance in my life. And a lot of it had to do with this guy…
My boyfriend was starting to get worried. So he went crazy and got us one of these! A NORWALK JUICER. I’m not kidding when I tell you that this juicer is changing my life. I’ve used a lot of juicers by now. And I’ve owned a lot of juicers too. But this one is different. It’s expensive. It’s true. But as my boyfriend says, it costs the same as about twelve hours in the hospital. So if you have health issues, like me…It becomes more an issue of how do you want to spend your money. On going to the hospital? Or on staying out of the hospital? Which ultimately is way way cheaper. So we went with the juicer path. And it’s helping…a lot! I feel like I’m getting my buffer back. It makes such a huge difference. I can’t even tell you.
I should mention that I’m doing a little workshop on juices and smoothies in a couple weeks. Its one of many workshops during a REJUVENATION DETOX CHALLENGE WEEK event we’re doing in collaboration with HIAWATHA YOGA (across the street). Julie is also teaching a Raw Foods 101 class. You can find event details and register online HERE.
In the meantime, I’m just trying to relax more and enjoy the music. I found out recently that my kitty really likes violin music. She just sits intently and listens. And then she tries to wack at the bow and figure out how it works. It’s pretty cute. This week, I’m taking a much needed vacation too. My boyfriend has gotten us on the guest list of so many shows this week! It’s gonna be good. Between now and this time next week, I will have seen Cheap Trick, Los Lobos, Bob Dylan/Wilco, Robert Plant, and the David Byrne/St. Vincent show. So the next time you hear from me, I’ll be a whole new person.
