Well this wasn't my "normal" week of juicing, just too much going on.... not an excuse, just my experience! This month has certainly been juice plus some veggies and fruits! However while the week is winding down, I am going to keep going and also add into my monthly program ONE DAY A WEEK, so now my year is ONE WEEK A MONTH and ONE DAY A WEEK! Just feels right to me.
I invite you all to join me if you are so called, check in with your intuition and see what you feel.
I thank you all for your participation and for "holding space for me this month", I could feel each of you and was filled with gratitude.
I invite all of you in Southern California to go by and see the newest Cafe Gratitude, it is AMAZING!
I am happy that we are through the crunch of the first few days open and looking forward to the ongoing development of the community there.
While it rained all day yesterday this morning I awoke to WIND and clear skies!
Grandchildren are back on the farm and the chickens are drying out a bit.
Green juice tasted so delicious this morning, even though it is still cold outside.
We head to the city today for meetings and I am present to my blessed life.
What are you present to?
Love, Terces

DAY Six March

Good Evening,

A rainy day here on the farm today. I enjoyed it as the day was a but quieter than usual and there is still so much going on with the opening of the LA Cafe that I really didn't want to put my attention anywhere else! They are doing a stunning job given how incredibly busy they are.
Had a peach smoothie today made from our own frozen peaches from last years crop, it was SO DELICIOUS!
We are off to the city tomorrow and I am looking forward to wheatgrass!
Remember that it isn't how you do the Juice week, it is that you do it...... however that looks.
Start ...... somewhere.
Love and appreciation,

Days THREE, FOUR and FIVE of March

WOW where to start, I am back... in lots of ways, To juicing, to the farm from Los Angeles, to reality... we were in LA for a few days to support the opening of the Cafe there. WELL, it was an amazing opening and we are so busy we are needing to create a new plan. We have never opened a new cafe serving this many people this quickly. YIKES, so much to take responsibility for, so much to learn and so much to trust! We are going to send down some more veterans of our company to support the new employees there. I was SO BUSY yesterday with the third day of business and then the Grand opening party that I hardly drank anything all day. I did have a green juice and tea in the morning and then water, water, water... all through the most amazing Grand Opening event ever! Jason Mraz sang, along with the Makepeace Brothers and Jessie Payo, and Matt and Avesa Love.... see video on my FB page... and then had some Jicama late at night when I was finally able to slow down and relax a bit. There were over 500 people there to welcome Cafe Gratitude into Los Angeles. So thank you all for being such a demand for gratitude.
What are you grateful for?
Today I returned to the farm, flying in first thing this morning, feeling like I had been up all night!
Had some grapefruit juice and took a nap mid day... what a treat. Just finished a warm cup of hot chocolate .. and am catching up on all my emails and this blog too.
Thank all of you for keeping on with the JUICE while I was away and I am so happy to be rejoining you.
LOVe, Love, Love,

I am in LA and the new Cafe Gratitude here had a wonderful first day! So much enthusiasm from all of the first day customers. The restaurant is beautiful and the food FABULOUS... well how would I know, because I ended up tasting some of it! While I did juice I also tasted the new spinach salad and the coconut "bacon" sandwich and then we went to dinner with our partners and I had some beet salad.... so all in all, I pretty much stuck with veggies and it certainly wasn' t an all juice day.... so I encourage all of you to keep on going, I am probably going to be on a similar program today, mostly juice and some food sampling.
I feel great, mostly excited about this newest location and all the new people we are now serving.
I love and appreciate you all.
Love. Terces

FIRST DAY of March

Hi Everyone,

Once again I am present to how much I look forward, even if resisting on some level, our week of JUICING together. It always comes just about the time I am so ready for it! It isn't that I eat poorly the rest of the month, just that I long for the structure, the clarity, the ease and energy.
How about you? This month we are heading to LA tomorrow morning at 4am for the first day of business (opening softly) at our new Cafe Gratitude on Larchmont Blvd. We are so excited. I feel like a new baby is being born and we are in the final stages of labor!
We are so proud of the boys (our sons) and the crew there, along with our partners.
I am thrilled that it won't be difficult to JUICE as there will be lots of fresh juice available.
Mint is growing on the farm already and I love it in grapefruit juice... also in season.
What are some of your favorite juice combinations?
Hope you had a great first day and I'll be in touch tomorrow from Los Angeles.
I love and appreciate you.
