Vern's Recovery & My Vegan Pizza Fixation

Thanks to everyone who stopped by and left good wishes for Vern.  After two heart attacks, a grand mal seizure, several long trips to the vet, and a few days of not feeling well, it seems that he's turned the corner and is doing much better.  He still has some recovery time ahead, but my sister reports that he's in good spirits and she's having a hard time keeping him in low activity mode.  She also says that every day with Vern is a gift.  This is a photo of him with his brother, Merle the cat, and sister, Niko the dog.  They're all coming to visit in a week or so and I'm so happy that Vern will be making the trip, too! 

 I've been a little obsessed with making pizza this week, mostly because my boyfriend is the KING of the home-made vegan variety.  He made a delicious version of his specialty last weekend that's left me craving a slice ever since.  So twice this week I've made my own, neither as good as his, but pizza is pizza is usually yummy no matter what.  True?
Mine are simple.  Crust, sauce, nutritional yeast.  Maybe a topping, but usually not.  Fast, easy, yum.
I've been doing pretty good with starting my day with some sort of green drink.  Getting back into that habit has been a little hard with the ongoing cold weather, but I'm getting one a day down for now.  This is one of my old faves.  Mango, grapefruit, and spinach smoothie. 
Hopefully I'll get some young coconuts this weekend so I can make my ultimate green smoothie with spinach, coconut, and mango. 
It may be cold, but the sun has been making some guest appearances, flowers are blooming, and Pixi spent a few hours by an open window yesterday. 

Happy Friday!
