It’s not often I’m in a yoga class where the teacher gives a reading during closing. But those rare times when that has been the case — well, I’ve adored it. I love words. Language. Poetry. Here’s the quote my yoga teacher read the other day:
Even after all this time
the sun never says to the earth
you owe me.
Look what happens to a love
like that – it lights the whole sky.
The dishes needed washing. There were two huge stacks – one by the sink and another over by the stove. One downside to cooking from scratch.
“All we had was salmon and spinach,” my husband said.
“But the teriyaki marinade* was homemade, remember?” Plus, during lunch, I’d been experimenting with homemade pasta sauce.
The dishes sat overnight. Today, evaluating the mess, I realized the entire kitchen needed attention – countertops, floors, fridge – along with the dining room, family room, and bathrooms.
I’ve never been obsessed with cleaning, but even this mess was grating on me.
On the other hand, it was 60 degrees and sunny outside. And I’ve been waiting for this weather since November.
But then again my parents were coming to visit later in the week, so I knew I really should tidy up.
I wasted 20 minutes debating, which included a phone consultation with my husband:
Him: You should definitely rollerblade – the weather is great.
Me: But I was going to wash all those dishes.
Him: Well, on second thought . . .
And an internal argument over the merits of what it means to be a person who writes about mindful living:
Me: A Zen Master of Cleaning would emphasize the importance of living an “uncluttered” life.
Me: But fresh air and exercise will balance out your day.
In the end I decided to blade. The President’s Challenge is underway and I committed to participating on this very blog . . . so you know . . . rollerblading is part of my job.
*Teriyaki Sauce from The Maker’s Diet: 1 T fresh, grated ginger; 3 cloves garlic, mashed; 1 T toasted sesame oil; 1 T rice vinegar; 1 T raw honey; ½ cup of soy sauce. Whisk together.
10. My produce never goes to waste anymore
9. No cooking, baking, stirring, or waiting. Just slice, juice, and drink (well, and clean)
8. Extra veggies, extra veggies, extra veggies – for both me and my spouse
7. My dog likes the scraps (dry pulp) mixed in with her meal
6. I feel clean and healthy and energized
5. The machine also makes baby food, nut butters, and pasta
4. Studies show juicing helps prevents disease
3. Juicing offers a great source of enzymes which are often destroyed by heat in cooked foods
2. It is the only way I’ll incorporate beets into my diet
1. Homemade food is the best. Hands down.
I must admit I was nervous about buying a juicer. They aren’t cheap (around $200 for a good one) and I was afraid I’d find juicing too inconvenient, resulting in a new nice appliance simply gathering dust in the corner of the kitchen. But I can’t emphasize enough how much I love it!
