Garden Musings and The Power Of Juice


Last weekend we needed to catch up on some sleep, too many late nights took their toll & we were grateful to not be caring for Bebe - relishing the opportunity to lie in bed until the afternoon for 3 days on the trot... Such a treat!

We've enjoyed sharing our home with 2 lots of friends (something we had to put on hold while Bebe was here), so it's been really lovely. 
We've also had some exceptionally tough work days, but continue to be supported by our fresh juices. We just have one for lunch & love the natural lift it gives us, yesterday - we cleaned the big holiday home we look after non-stop for over 7 hours. Admittedly, we were knackered at the end, but we did the work of 4 people on our usual breakfast of super food porridge, then green juice followed by a banana for lunch. We'd taken extra food to eat too, as we knew it was going to be a hard day, but we didn't have time for anything else. After a good night's sleep, we have felt rejuvenated today & believe the juices are responsible.

We've been talking about trying a juice fast, just because we love the buzz it gives us - not only does it improve our energy levels, but our skin, nails & hair look & feel so good. Sime's beard seems to be gradually returning to it's original gingery colour & his hair has started to grow back quicker after shaving his head, with hair actually growing back on his bald pate... Which is hilarious, maybe soon he'll end up with a full head of thick curls!
  I'm also interested in seeing if it works well for thyroid health. After my last thyroid storm in 2012, I have remained stable & continue to do so - with tweaks here & there... I know I can't tolerate large amounts of cruciferous vegetables, especially non organic or raw, but I do use small amounts in juices & although my throat sometimes tightens for a while - I seem fine. 
For about 18 months, I treated myself with small doses of homoeopathic kelp & calcium carbonate, which has worked wonders - along with vegan Vitamin D drops. They have turned my life around. Can regular juicing help stabilise my thyroid once & for all? I believe it can.
My perimenopause symptoms are certainly improving too! :-)

Today's liquid lunch...
Purple sprouting, pak choi, celery, pineapple, apples, beansprouts, lemon, ginger & coriander.

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St. Austell for breakfast.  
Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

Lights Out!

Just 4 weeks to go until this year's Earth Hour.
Here's the link to join in: Sign Up For Earth Hour.
We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?

Lamledra

The sun was shining yesterday again, so after a fairly busy week - we decided to get out for a long walk. We walked into Gorran Haven & took the coastal path back home...
Gorran Haven Harbour. This part of the coastal path takes you around the Lamledra pennisula, which heads towards Vault beach...
Gorran Haven.
It was chilly, but warm in the sun...
Black clouds started coming over & we thought it was going to rain, but it stayed dry!
First sign of Spring...
Dodman Point ahead & the blue skies were back...
We made the most of the sunshine & stopped to eat...
With a lovely view of the beach...
Lamledra House. We used to clean it, but quit after a year - because we only had 3 hours & felt we just couldn't get everything done - it sleeps 20! The owners are lovely though, but their budget is tight with constant maintenance.  They do have some interesting guests there...
It got to 5pm & we still had a long way to go, so we left the path & took the road...
Cornish herringbon…
