Day 272: taking a shot

29 Sep

I’m feeling a bit under the weather today, so my new friend Carrie Saba, who met me for breakfast while I am visiting Columbus, Ohio for the fabulous Women on Fire Day (tomorrow!!!), suggested I try something new.

A shot with a chaser.
Of wheatgrass followed by an orange slice.

They say wheatgrass juice provides the nutritional equivalent of 2 and 1/2 pounds of leafy green vegetables. It is also said to:

– increase red blood cell count

– act as an anti inflammatory

– rejuvenate the body

– reduce high blood pressure

So I took a double shot!
Who knows if it helped my head cold today or my body?  But, it sure was fun to try something new.

And, I can tell you what really eased my head, heart and soul today — connecting with a new friend.  Thank you Carrie!  It was so wonderful to spend time in your sunshine.

Thank you for introducing me to a fun new place (North Market) and thank you for listening and laughing too.

As I sit here tonight typing away, on the eve of Women on Fire Day, I can’t help but wonder about all the new friendships that will spark tomorrow in the presence of open hearts, warm, wonderful, and super dynamic women.

There’s one thing I do know for sure: it’s always worth taking a shot at making new friends.

Fireworks await.

    Oh wheatgrass…I’ve been “shooting” it lately too. Do you like the taste? I find the taste of wheatgrass pretty awful. But I do it for the health benefits..lol!

      I think it helped that my sinuses were plugged up with my cold and I couldn’t smell anything! But the orange chaser is really great 😉
