All is well in my raw world.
Breakfast was juice; cucumber, celery, and kale. It was bitter. Adding a carrot made it taste good.
Lunch was a sliced apple dipped in almond butter flavored with maple syrup and cinnamon.
After shopping at Central Market I ate 4 tiny finger bananas. Super sweet!
Dinner was a salad; mache, green olives, maple pecans, red pepper, avocado, snap peas, green onion, some sweet radishes, and house dressing.
After dinner I made a batch of chocolate macaroons. That involved some taste testing. They are in the dehydrator now, along with sprouted buckwheaties.
Today was the first day of Spring Break for my daughter. We slept in, then spent the day hanging out at home. This evening while I was out shopping I rented the movie "Twilight". Since Dad is downstairs playing pool with a friend tonight, my girl and I watched the movie snuggled up in my room. Extra special.
We are celebrating my daughter's improvement in her Math grade. Her teacher, the same one I complained bitterly about in the past, he called again today. Only this time it was with good news. He was thrilled to tell me her grade is no longer an F. She is getting a A- on her mid-term grade. I take back everything bad I said about him. He may be the best teacher she has ever had. He was super strict which was a problem, but he did not give up. A huge thanks goes to my brother for spending many hours at our kitchen table tutoring my daughter in Algebra. It is way over my head. It has been such a struggle for my daughter, but she did not give up either. She is basking in the glow of a well deserved happiness. And I am breathing a huge sigh of relief and letting go.
With patience and persistence anything is possible. I need to remember that and apply it to a few other areas of my life.
