Mourning Dove Coo

Saturday afternoon Mr. B used the ladder to tie up our grape vines.

On Monday morning a Mourning Dove was building a nest on the top rung of the ladder.

Since then she has been sitting on the nest.

I feel like an Auntie in the maternity waiting room. 

I am so excited to see those little ones!

"Since childhood she had walked the Devon rivers with her father looking for flowers and the nests of birds, passing some rocks and trees as old friends, seeing a Spirit everywhere, gentle in thought to all her eyes beheld." --Henry Williamson

Have you had your lemon today?

Song - Lemon Tree by Peter, Paul & Mary

I have gone to several yoga classes in the last few weeks and the instructor encourages everyone to pour themselves some warm water and add some lemon juice.  She claims that it aids in digestion.

But since then, I have been reading more and more about warm lemon water in the morning and all of the benefits.

The health benefits of lemons have been known for centuries.

1. Aids digestion
2. Cleanses your system
3. Boosts your immune system
4. Balances your pH level
5. Clears your skin
6. Energizes you/enhances your mood
7. Promotes healing
8. Freshens breath
9. Hydrates your lymph system
10. Boosts weight loss

So pour yourself a glass of warm filtered water,  then juice 1/2 a lemon into it and enjoy!

(Some people claim that because lemon juice is so acidic that it harms your tooth enamel so just follow your glass of warm lemon water with a glass of fresh water or use a straw.)

Note - you might like to zest your lemon first and keep a container of lemon zest in your freezer to add to pasta or salad dressing!

 "I believe that if life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade...and try to find somebody whose life has given them vodka, and have a party" --Ron White
