PLEASING Vita

Wednesday, December 11, 2013



Today's blog is about PLEASING Vita. emoticon
For years I have used Vita without thinking of her needs. emoticon She has labored ever so hard for me and I never gave her a second thought. She has been in the family for about 15 years or more, helping at a drop of a dime.

It wasn't until Hubby asked what I wanted for Christmas this year that I thought of Vita. Vita has special needs, she LOVES being bathed in a hot bath with organic ROSE scented dish detergent. This year I asked DH to think of what she needs to extend her life as she brings me so much JOY. emoticon


He searched online and found he could get her a new set of blades. She really needed new blades as her's have grown worn after years of taking care of our needs. For years she made herbal remedies with her blades, grind up roots, branches, and leaves into powders to be processed into creams, teas, and tinctures. She has made lots of smoothies and ice cream for the children when they were small. Vita used her blades today to make me some hot soup. Vita is a busy. emoticon







Yesterday Vita was pleased as hubby turned her upside down. emoticon Her BARE BOTTOM was in the air as he disconnected her blades gently. He bathed the metal plate in rose scented, organic dish detergent. Then he screwed tightly the pieces back together.






The last thing he did for Vita was to replace her Drive Socket ! That's the piece that the blender jar seats into, holding it snug. Where the Male part JOINS the Female part of the blender. Being that she was over 15 years old, having been used frequently, she was due to be FRESHENED UP. emoticon




Today when she made my creamed soup she sang a happy tune again. emoticon No more whining, high tortured squeals. Instead Vita sang her heart out. Vita sounds just like new. All for around $100, achieved at home. A bargain for all the years of use I have gotten out of her. Vita is PLEASED, VERY PLEASED. emoticon





Today I am on the Juice Fast. I had the delicious juice I made from yesterday and I added in some wild greens and barley grass juice. Lunch was some creamed vegetable soup with smoked paprika. Yum. A fresh coconut for coconut water. Absolutely heavenly. Chaga Tea, water, and juice as needed. emoticon I feel stuffed as the wild greens mix is filling.

    emoticon I had a flashback to high-school Latin while reading this. Vita: meaning = LIFE, word gender = feminine. Periodically I still use my avocado green, 1969, Oster blender and smile about all the treats that have come from this appliance.

    Glad you gave Vita the attention she deserves.

I'm a convert to the joys of juicing, and I owe a lot of that to you - thank you for your support and all the things you took the time to explain (including Juice fact #64, above.) That chocolate ice cream looks pretty good - might just make it to the Christmas table for dessert!

I just completed the six day cleanse from here:

    I know that Sparks doesn't approve of Juice Fasting, but if it works for you, so be it. I know it worked for Joe Cross.

    First I'm glad Vita got some loving care she needed. Do you actually make your own creams, etc. I find that so amazing. You have so much talent. By the way your soup looks delicious. Keep us updated, as I learn so much from you.

    I THINK I OWN VITA'S COUSIN. I REMEMBER WHEN THEY FIRST CAME OUT, AND THEIR WAS ONLY ABOUT 4 TYPES OF BLENDER JIUCER-MIXERS. I HAD GONE THE WHOLE ROUTE TILL I FINALLY GOT TO HER. I WANTED MY DAD'S CAUSE IT WOULD BE CHEAP FOR ME, BUT HE LIVED 3 HOURS AWAY, AND PROBABLY SOLD IT FOR $30.00 BEFORE I DROVE UP, IN HIS GARAGE SALE. HE NEEDED A QUICK EXIT FROM HIS HOUSE, CAUSE HE HAD CANCER & WAS GOING TO LIVE WITH HIS DAUGHTER. I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT. sO, WHEN I WENT TO AN ART SHOW, THERE WAS A VITA, AND I KNEW IT WOULD BE CHEAPER THAN THE $800.00 OR UP THAT IT WAS. mY GIRL FRIEND THAT NEEDED TO MAKE HER OWN FERTILIZER, & HAD MONEY TO BURN ALSO WANTED HER FOR THAT! sO, WE GOT A GREAT DEAL OF $50.00 I DID TALK HER OUT OF USING HERS FOR CHEMICALS THPOUGH. sHE ISN'T INTO HEALTH, ALTHOUGH SHE IS A NURSE. yET SHE ONLY USES HER TO MAKE LIUQOR DRINKS OR LATTES. nEED I SAY THAT POSSIBLY SHE WILL BE MORE PRACTICAL IN THE FUTURE WHEN SHE REALIZES MORE ABOUT DAMAGING HER HEALTH. I ALSO HAVE A NUTRI-BULLET, DEHYDRATION, AND OTHER GAGETS. l LIKED HEARING WHAT YOUR UP TO. TAKE CARE, emoticon emoticon emoticon EVA
