First thing I drank my morning dose of Aloe Vera. It’s going very well and that stuff really is agreeing with me in a big way. Today I upped the dose to the top level I have been aiming at: 60ml. I started on 10ml per dose 4 weeks ago. As ever I am careful and taking things nice ‘n’ slow. I will hold at 60ml morning and evening now. That’s more than enough.
Next I drank my usual morning pint of water. I have done that daily for 6 years now. Then I made a pot of herbal tea and settled in my room, opened the curtains to let the sun stream in, and put on a new CD: DJ_Kicks, Maya Jane Coles. Quality house music. If you like a bit of house…I highly recommend it.
Once settled down on my dark brown leather sofa and got stuck into the book I’m reading at the moment: ‘Caliban’s War’ by James S.A.Corey. This is the second book in a trilogy. A ‘kickass space opera’ as they market this things. Very good too. Very kickass! I read for about an hour.
I made breakfast: bacon and eggs, sourdough bread with butter and honey. Everything is of course organic. So far my ideal Sunday morning.
I shower and shave and I’m ready to get in the garden at 11am. The sky is clear and the sun is shining. We had a frost last night but by the time I’m out it’s the warmest day of the year so far and all the sparkly frost has gone. In the sun it feels lovely and warm, although my iphone tells me it’s only 11 degs.
I have my work cut out. I have ordered in two tons of well rotted horse $hit. Now I have to spread it all around my garden. I have two big bags that got craned on to the front drive last week. I have to wheelbarrow the whole lot from the front garden to the back and then spread it all around the beds.
Why? Why spread horse $hit all around my lovely garden? Because that’s the secret to amazingly beautiful and bountiful gardens is: $hit! Serious too. Plants need lots of organic matter to thrive on. Well rotten horse $hit is like a turbo boost for all the plants; just my style: – )
It’s hard work shovelling all that crap; brings on a lovely sweat on this beautiful winters morning. Feels like spring. It’s coming soon too; all the bulbs are pushing their heads up. Because the work is hard, I alternate between shovelling and chopping last years dead plants back. The wife joins me chopping. The kids too have a quick hack, but quickly get sidetracked into hide-and-seek and football.
I’m outside in the sun, sweating, pottering around the garden for two wonderful hours. Nice to get out. I have missed the sunshine this winter. Seems to have been bleaker than usual this year.
For lunch my 4.5 year old son helps me make a quick fresh juice: one orange, half a lime, six carrots, four sticks of celery, an apple and half a cucumber. I was gonna have some bread too, but I juiced too much, about 1.5 pints, so it’s just juice at lunch today.
After juice: I am in charge of dinner tonight, so I quickly put everything together; slow cooked lamb stew with carrots, onions, home-grown garlic and one little turnip. Will have it with brown rice, so I set that to soak in water with a dash of apple cider vinegar. I got some asparagus from the market yesterday; looks lovely and will no doubt taste divine with butter melted on it.
After that I head back out into the sun. After more chopping we have filled the last compost bin. So now I have to empty another bin and spend the next hour or so shovelling compost on to the veggie beds. Again hard work, but satisfying to be out, active and in the sun. In the pic above the beds that are dark are covered in $hit, and at the end you can see the veggie beds covered in compost.
We have amazing organic dark rye sourdough bread from the market, to be dipped in organic olive oil. Raw cheese called ‘Lancashire bomb’. Cashew nuts and pumpkin seeds: pre-soaked and rehydrated to neutralise the phytic acid. A pot of herbal tea and some of awesome homemade raw chocolate.
I made the chocolate last weekend after an old friend read my book and wanted some of it!! (Hi Femke) Raw cacao, raw maca power, cashew nuts (pre-soaked and whatnot), honey and all mixed up with coconut oil. Now this coconut oil is no ordinary coconut oil: no, this is personally hand delivered by my bro all the way from Goa beach in India. Thanks man!!
Tastes wonderful. I am eating some right now as I type this up. I limit myself to three chunks per sitting. At the moment it’s all gummed up in my teeth…yummmmmmmmy! Food of the gods this stuff.
Anyway, that’s about all for today. As you can see I have regained some strength. I could not shovel anything last year because I was too sick. The aloe vera is doing some seriously good things to me. I will write another separate post all about aloe vera when I’m further along down the line. It takes two to three months to get the full effects…but I can say the first month has been really cool. I feel much better. And I’m regaining weight as my body comes back to like again. 4kg since the juice fast. A very good sign.
And it is now inevitable – I am definitely feeling much better these days and chelation will have to restart soon. I can’t put it off now I’m feeling better. That is inevitable, although I’m a tad apprehensive; I don’t like side-effects. But, if I am to get proper and permanently better, chelation is inevitable.
Oh yeah, I also finished the second round of Humaworm Liver herbs last week. I am still struggling with a congested gallbladder. Muscle testing confirms this. The herbs are good and I feel better on them than off them. I will start the third round of HW liver herbs a week on Monday.
That’s all folks!
