Yup, I'm feeling much better. And I'm loving juicing, and it's a great way to get extra goodness in Rye.
A very successful smoothie I made today, I named Ruby Red Smoothie. Yum, it's basically banana and beetroot, with some celery and kiwi. Really creamy and sweet, we both loved it:
And after we'd explored different things with magnets and learned that some metals are attracted to magnets but some, noteably, aluminium foil, is not... we moved on and I asked him what else he'd like to do. This is fun time with mama, and he chooses.......................... workbooks.
Have to say thought, it was pretty exciting to see how much easier he found the handwriting exercises with the new pen. He even told me off at one point because I didn't read the instructions on one of the pages to him, bless him.
It's been an interesting day, dvds, helping with the housework:
The one blight, he appears to be coming down with a cold. He'd had some 7 up a friend bought me while I was ill and not eating much, and I thought it was that, something in fizzy drinks make me snotty and I've noticed it does the same to Rye - which is why I limit fizzy now..and Rye has only ever had it rarely. Alas no, it's a cold, he's coughing, spluttering and sneezing. So I'm hoping the juices will help with getting some vitamins and goodness into his system and boosting his immune system.
He's not a big fan of herbal teas, he will drink them sometimes, cold, I was thinking though I have some echinea tea, i wonder if I could mix it with a juice... don't see why not. He's not running a temp at the mo, so with any luck be able to nip it in the bud before the cold manages to take hold proper. We'll see.
