Green Machine

I am thinking green might be my new favorite color. But then I feel like I am being a traitor to blue which has been stalwart pretty much my whole (albeit short) life! And what about pink, I have loved that one for a long time too! What will they think if I just suddenly start saying my favorite is GREEN?! Am I the only one who feels they must stay loyal to colors, of all things?! I mean, I don't really think "blue" would mind. Maybe if I break the news to blue in a nice way.....

I need more friends.

Anyways, speaking of Green, feast your eyes. And your bellies because you should make some.

When Job saw what I was putting in it he just said, "Sorry hun, I love you, but I am not eating that." He was serious!! I was shocked! I pleaded, puppy eyed, "demanded" etc... but he was pretty firm. But finally after I drank mine and mentioned how delish it was he sipped it. And LIKED it! ha!
