A Drink to Canada's Birthday!

Canada's 145 years old today and so I had a drink in Canada's honour and to my health.

Juice: 3 small bunches of spinach, 1 medium carrot, 1 med-large tomatoe, 1 small yellow pepper, 2 stalks of celery & fresh ginger to taste.

I've long given up going out with the crowds to enjoy the day and watch fireworks. Instead I'm spending a quiet day relaxing at home. I'm watching movies and later will watch a rebroadcast of the nationally televised birthday celebrations from our nation's capital city, Ottawa. Later, we'll have some made from scratch pizzas with lot of fresh veggies for dinner.

What are you doing for Canada Day celebrations? 
Whatever you and your family/loved ones are doing, I hope you thoroughly enjoy it.

The US celebration is the 4th of July...smack in the middle of the week on a Wednesday. But, we are making the most of it. We are not much for crowds either, but our local little town hosts a wonderful parade after work on the 3rd...and it passes just at the end of our block.

I've decided it is one of my more favorite holidays. Unlike valentine's day, mother's day, father's day...it doesn't alienate those that don't fit in. Unlike Christian religous holidays - everyone is the US celebrates. It is just a nice holiday for everyone...but, I wish it were not in the middle of July - because it is usually too hot to be outside!

Mmm, sounds yummy, Penny. My husband bought me a new juicer (it was on special at Costco, he didn't buy it because I needed it) and I'm looking forward to trying it out when I get home.
I'm actually in the Vancouver suburbs, and will be going over to Pender Island to visit my young sister-in-law and the children at her parents' place there this week. I have a memorial service to attend in Vancouver at the end of the week, but will try to get in touch with you if I can.

Hi Kay, I'm glad your husband bought you a juicer. I remember you saying you wanted one. Now you can juice all the veggies and fruits you want. If you can make it to get in touch that would be super. Hugs. P

KT, I'm glad you will have a parade to enjoy on your July 4th celebrations. I hope it doesn't get too hot for you. I don't like heat myself.
