Norms Thursday door challange is back and this week I have both a blend of nautical boats doors and as usual as we are in Europe I have old doors.. really old doors. Enjoy!
There is something about water that connects…..
Summer always brings those wonderful exotic fruits and veggies and on the market I can go for hours picking out fresh fruit. The fruit detox for this week contains passion fruit, apples, grapes, strawberries and mango. Throw in a few macadamia, walnuts and apricots kernels (alternative cancer treatment and contains Vitimine B17) and you have a real organic detox that will make your body go WHIIIII of happiness.
Wellness is not how thin you are or how many hours you spent on the gym or how many carrots you ate for lunch last week. wellness is feeling good inside yourself and knowing who you are. If you don’t know who you are you will only be a lost soul at sea. If your soul is shining so are you on the outside and this is notice by many people around you and this is like rings on the water without you even knowing it. By our mind and consciousness we effect others around us by having a soul filled with wellness. And with wellness comes happiness. You catch my drift here? 🙂
I notice myself being grumpy sometimes for no reason at all, like the atmosphere we live in effect us most negatively once in a while. This effects of course my surrounding and all of a sudden the moment that just been so good for all just died. Most unnecessary and this is why I write this post, To make you remember who you are and how you feel and how that effects everything you do and and around you. To reach a goal it is important to not loose the ground on reality as the world we live in today is rough and not at all what you think it is. Open your eyes and hearts and you notice that the world will opens up to you.
Lots of love to you all.
Its the time of the week again, Thursday doors challenge is here and today I have a blend of doors all from the nautical world to churches from the city of Hoorn in the Netherlands.
While walking and bicycle along these small old street you never know what to find.
This is a church door to The protestant church in the City center. Notice the scary skeleton above the entrance.Now very inviting in my opinion.
This Is just a fun door I found on a smaller tjalk tied up in the old harbor. But wait.. it does not fit! 🙂
This is our boat neighbors door to their skutsje they have. Cute.
This is the entrance to Twee huys ( two houses) Also a very old church back as far as 1466 it said beside it. Back in that time it was use as a county house. Beautiful decorations around it.
I used to work in a bakery back in the days in Stockholm. After that I love bread and the lovely smell of fresh baked bread not just in the morning but all the time. I tried another bread with nuts and sesame seeds and it came out great. Now a lovely sandwich on fresh baked bread.
It was time for Regatta this weekend for Laser in Hoorn and it was a busy marina. As we are waiting on a spare part to arrive we have a great spot in the marina and it was so fun to see the sailors prepare and set sail out on the lake, they are really skill full I must say even though i still think it looks funny when grown up men and women are in these small boats as this was something we used to do as kid to learn how to sail. But it is fun and I understand why they do it. People from all over Europe was here to try and take the trophy. Let the best man or woman win! 🙂
It has started and they are everywhere. 25 degrees Celsius today and everyone that has a boat was out today, the whole weekend will be the same. Here are a mix of boats you see in the Netherlands. There are thousands more and the marinas are full at night and empty in the daytime.
Hello Thursday! I have a blend of lovely doors today for you all. :)Lets go!
Old prison door from 1612.
Build between 1557-1559 this door was the entrance of where they weight the cheese and butter.
Entrance what use to be The East Indian Companies buildings from 1625.
A newer door as entrance into a dutch home and notice the cat door to the right. 🙂
Small crumbs with honey, sugar as sweet and coffee to go,
life is good with those small things, those sweet things
In the summer sun, May is gentle
the water is still and the harbor is glowing.
I really have a sweet tooth but I love fruit as well. I need to try and cut down on the candy and there are tons of excellent and lovely fruits out there especially now when summer is around the corner. And it just has to be that I love fruit. Fresh strawberries, blueberries, black berries, oranges, grapes, kiwi and apples fill my galley now after a trip to the market today. Fresh juices and smoothies will be the next few days detox with all these fruits filled with alkaline. Why alkaline fruits? Well they are very good anti cancer fruits for example. Buts that not all it does.
So what are acid forming foods good for?
Balance the pH in the body and when that’s balanced you notice for example:
- Better digestion
- Easier fat loss
- better mental focus
- better mood
- less pain from inflammation related conditions
It is your body and only you decide whats goes into it so choose wisely and change some of the bad habits and replace it with good living well being.
You notice a more healthy active life and you make your body a favor.
You know what they say? An apple a day keeps the doctor away. 🙂 Its true!
