Juice and Naps (I’ve reverted to childhood)

When I got home from work yesterday, this was sitting on the kitchen counter. Honestly, it was a lot bigger than I thought it would be. I guess because this is the smaller size.


For our first juice, we decided to try something simple and newbie safe – carrot orange juice.


We used 4 carrots and 4 clementines. And look what it produced!


This was so good. The froth on top made it taste like an Orange Julius.

Today, I decided to get a little more adventurous. My plan with the juicer is to juice mostly vegetables, not fruit. I started with fruit yesterday to sort of ease my way into it, but really want to focus on juices that are mostly veggies with maybe one piece of fruit. Today’s happy hour concoction was 1 gala apple, 1 beet, 2 small english cucumbers that were on their last legs and a large handful of spinach.



I’ll admit it, it was not as good as the carrot/orange juice. It was still good but the taste of cucumbers really permeated the entire thing. I thought that was strange since they were little. It was still sweet from the apple. I don’t think I used enough spinach; my handful didn’t seem to produce any juice at all.

Have you seen this survey about napping? 34% of adults in the US take daily naps. Do you? I’m going to share a little secret. I do. It’s not after work though. I have an office with a door and during my lunch hour, I tend to have a little siesta. No one in my office knows this! I actually have a small pillow that I stash in my desk. I just put my head on the desk; I don’t lie on the floor. It’s sort of a nice break although I am a bit groggy for a few minutes when I wake up.

Tonight is Jason and my 2-year anniversary. (I have been wondering what is the gramatically correct way of saying that. Jason and mine? Jason and me’s? Jason and I’s?) We’re going out to dinner at a nice restaurant that we have a restaurant.com coupon for. Back with an update later.

  2. Happy Anniversary! 🙂

    That juice looks so good. I think I would love the orange one, mmmmm.

    I would seriously LOVE to take a nap everyday. Well, I don’t know if I could every day, but probably a few times a week I could seriously fall asleep standing up. I share my office with someone (grrr) otherwise I’d be all over that.

    The carrot orange juice looks quite tasty!

    I don’t think I could fall asleep for a few minutes and then be able to wake back up. That is so funny you have a pillow stash! lol I bet it is nice to get a little rest in the middle of the day!!

    Have a wonderful evening!!
