It's been a wild and wonderful time with Auntie Jo in town ... the little man loved having her here.  We spent a day in DC, drove out to Williamsburg a few times, and had all kinds of glorious adventures.

I've become positively addicted to blending things up in the Vitamix ... this blueberry smoothie is the latest and greatest!

Creamy Blueberry Smoothie
Creamy, thick, and rich with antioxidants, lignans, protein, fiber, potassium, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, and so much more. 

1 cup milk (milk, almond milk, coconut milk, soy milk)
1 frozen or fresh banana
1 cup frozen or fresh blueberries
1 teaspoon ground flaxseed
1 teaspoon ground hemp
Several pinches bee pollen (optional for vegan)
Ice cubes (if fruit is all fresh and not frozen)

Blend thoroughly until as smooth as desired (at least one minute).

Drink a toast to your health!

When Auntie Jo was here, we did everything Virginia.  We visited an old plantation, and two kind ladies took our picture there.

Little Mr H keeps sending pictures to Daddy.

We scored a free chair on black Friday, and a red solid wood bookcase, too.  They were on the side of the street.  Yay dumpster diving!  That's my kind of shopping.

The little man pinned an outfit on Pinterest ...

He helped me carry fifty deviled eggs to Thanksgiving dinner with friends (Mr H is still away).  The deviled eggs were made with homemade garlic-ginger mustard, and mayonnaise made with raw eggs and expeller-pressed coconut oil.

We walked downtown and visited a hole-in-the-wall Thai restaurant, where we enjoyed five-star vegetarian dining (I am not sure it was vegan!).  Out waiter was attentive, the food was prepared in decent timing and tasted fresh and well-seasoned.

We visited a museum with a creepy clown ...

The little man sat in a huge old chair that used to sit outside a chair-making shop.

He lifted weights to get buff and huge!

We visited the farm to pick up milk - and took embarrassing pictures!

Sitting on the steps at the nation's capitol, we kept the little man bundled up against the chill!
