Was the night before Juice Feast

and all through the house, lots of fruits and veggies were juicing...

Tomorrow is the beginning of a Global Juice Feast for many people. Tonight, I am sure that there are lots of people who are getting mentally, physically and mason-jar ready.

I have gotten my journal, my msm lotion, mason jars, hot water bottle, fruits and veggies galore (although I'm sure I will be stopping by the local grocery store over the weekend). I hope that I have prepared myself enough physically and mentally for this amazing journey. I'm not sure entirely what that requires; but that is the nice thing about adventures, you never know where they will lead or what they will entail.

One of the best mini-vacations that I have ever been on was last summer. Chris and I jumped into his jeep and drove. I'm not sure if he was entirely sure where we were going, or if he planned exactly where we ended up, but the whole trip was a total surprise to me. We went to the farmers market to get vine rippened strawberries for the drive, a winery, an ice cream store (oops), a craft market (while we enjoyed the ice cream), enjoyed a nice lunch in a small town, drove to the Lake on the Mountain, and ended up in Belleville for the night. I think this was the most romantic trip that I have ever been on. What I enjoyed the most about this trip was the unknown. It was all unplanned and spontaneous and we didn't know what was around the next corner.

It a way I hope my Juice Feast will be the same...It will be an adventure and I hope that there is excitement and wonder at every turn. Just as my weekend away, this Juice Feast will lead me on a new path of awareness.

I don't know how long this feast will last. I'm sure a lot of other people preparing for a similar journey tonight are thinking the same thoughts, preparing the same things and anticipating the same things. I only hope I can see my way past the next three days.

In my fridge, sits a litre mason jar filled with the juice of 1/2 a lemon and 1 tsp msm powder and another mason jar filled with juiced kale, lemon, green apples and lime. Let the adventure begin...
