Our Last Day in Ecuador... is our last full day here in Vilcabamba, for now ;(
I feel my heart starting to ache already at the prospect of leaving tomorrow…mmmmmm...we are just having such a divinely wonderful time here...well, there are also many adventures afoot in N. America for us to start exploring in the coming months too ;) ...and we’ll be back here in the south at some point in the not soooo distant future, all being well... In the meantime, my desire is to visit our land again today for the last time and get some of our new baby fruit trees into the ground...the house plans are coming along WONDERFULLY – we are sooooo excited – you can see a video of our architect friend Ayrie discussing the plans HERE – enjoy ;)

on April the 3rd I had:

1 quart water
mug of herbal tea
big bowl of fresh fruit salad
2 tbsp Greener Grasses powder
2 cups water
3 tbsp bee pollen/hemp seed mixture, a nori powerwrap
1.5 cups greeeen juice: cucumber, celery, parsley, alfalfa, carrot
a YUMMY papaya
3 cups water
1.5 cups greeeen juice: cucumber, celery, parsley, alfalfa, carrot
plate of fresh garden salad with guacamole, cabbage chips, dulse and pine nut butter
3 cups water

Here is a wonderful little quote that dropped into my inbox recently that I wanted to share – I think it’s really beautiful:

“...the ho-hums in our lives can turn into ah-has
just by changing the way we see them.”

LOVE it :) This arrived in one of the free ‘Gift for Today’ emails from Hazelden. I have been receiving their free inspirational emails for a few years now – they are one of the few things I consistently read every day and I love them – so much gratitude for this service ;) You can sign up to receive them too if you like on the Hazelden site HERE – if you don’t get them already ;)

on April the 4th I had:

1 quart water
mug of lemongrass tea
plate of pineapple slices
2 tbsp Greener Grasses powder
plate of yummy garden salad with guacamole and cabbage ‘chips’, half a goji bar
3 cups water
yummy mushy yumpot meal: hand–blended mixtures of pine nut/hemp nut butter with banana, lucuma, goji powder and vanilla/cinnamon powders
3 cups water
