Blogging, Kombucha and a pixie

August 16, 2008 | My Jottings

I really do not have the time to blog more than once every few days, but since this is all so new, it seems to call from the office to me.  I was mashing avocadoes to make guacamole and I suddenly remembered that I had a bottle of Kombucha in the fridge.  So I need to talk about Kombucha.

Two of my daughters have encouraged me to drink Kombucha, but I discarded that idea once I had a tiny sip –  it is very sharp, very vinegary and yeasty.  However, one daughter really gave me the hard sell the other day.  She talked about how she didn’t like it either, how other friends encouraged her to try it and that it made them feel really good and healthy, and how she now really enjoys it.  She said it actually makes her feel more clear-headed and more energetic.  Hmmm.  And it’s not a drug? 

“Just drink one bottle,” she said.  So I have 1/8 of a bottle of Divine Grape Kombucha down and am going to persevere to see if I am more clear-headed and energetic.  I could certainly use both of those attributes lately.

It’s not tasty at all.  But the bottle assures me it will “rejuvenate, restore, revitalize, replenish and regenerate.”  You can be sure I’ll be reporting if any of these re- words become a re-ality for me.

One more tidbit: aside from being a new blogger and drinking Kombucha for the first time, I also recently had all my hair chopped off.  I think it would be called a pixie, but I’m afraid it’s possibly even shorter than that.  About an inch long.  While I’m paring down many things in my life of late, I added my hair to the list.

The next time I post I’m going to tell why I chose Job 23:12 as the Bible verse I wanted on my site. 

Have you tried Kombucha?  Do you like it?  Does it make you feel different?  I’m interested in knowing…

    Hi, Julie!

    I just had a chance to read all of your entries ~ you are a gifted writer among your other wonderful qualities!

    I will look forward to reading your blogs and feel like I am close by, sitting in the comfy chair next to yours, and sharing a cup of coffee as we chat.

    Thanks for inviting me to visit your blog! I hope we’ll have a chance to talk and catch up on the phone soon.

    Good morning Julie –

    “Blog” is such a coarse name for the warm & inviting space you have created.(The word always sounded to me to be better suited to a B-grade horror film: “The Return of the Blog” or “The Blog That Ate Cleveland”). You write well; you speak from the inside out. That’s why people respond to you the way they do.
