In the Land of Milk and Honey

Friday, March 01, 2013

It's been surreal flying from one end of the globe to the other and being back with my own extended family in New Zealand where we celebrated my Mother's life. I didn't have much time to think let alone look at the scenery on the way to the beautiful place that was my home when I was a kid. It was bitter sweet seeing my Mum and thinking of her life & of her raising us minus the techology we have today Lucky thing and her siblings were a fit, slim family whereas I have battled with flab since I was a teenager and now thanks to my own neglect have got high blood pressure. It was like I had swapped one way of life for another - from materialism to love. I am in the local library typing this we haven't got what we take for granted at home - a working computer. How annoying is that!!! It's not possible to use mobile phones in the area I returned to but I never had time for mobiles or anything else. It seems that when I get on a roll and everything is going to plan something happens to throw me off course again. However, thanks to coming on here albeit ever so briefly I feel motivated to cook healthy again. We have been juicing a lot at my daughters and everyone has loved it. We all caught colds thanks to late nights and those are fading thank goodness. We had lots of ginger. I am getting off here cause the time is almost up and I will be checking out if there are still orchards about where we can pick fruit cheaply. It is indeed a Land of Milk and honey where the people are forever moaning about being hard done by.

    Glad you found a few minutes to check in. We're missing you here in the UK.

    Hope all went well saying good bye to your mother, families are such strange combinations of people and seem to only get together for the major events.

    Sending best wishes for the rest of your time there. You'll find a way to eat healthily and exercise while you are there.
