Here are your weekly lifestyle delights again, things I’ve discovered, enjoyed, pondered, done …
I’m melting …
Yes, I’m MELTing. I’ve discovered this method when I was very tense & stressed during the 2 months I spent with my dad in hospital last year. And I’ve just started doing it again, actually just go the DVDs to make it easier than following the book. It’s a really nice and relaxing way to detangle all those connective tissues and relax.
I’m making …
Chocolate. Oh yes, healthy, yummy chocolate … With a few nootropics that keep my brain sharp, some superfood berries like blueberries & cranberries for another health boost and an even better taste … Oh, and with just a tiny bit of honey, no sugar added otherwise, so I can eat as many of them as often as I want. Check out the picture from my batch last Sunday (the 5th) here.
What goes better with chocolate than …
… a beautiful French 75 Cocktail. All you need for 2 glasses is 3 oz (90 ml) Hendricks or another beautiful Gin, 1.5 oz (45 ml) lemon juice, 1 oz (30 ml) or a little more or less depending how sweet your tooth is of simple syrup (or I like vanilla syrup). Then top up with a nice champagne. Fill in a champagne coupe or flute, sprinkle a few rose leaves on top … and you are ready for a lovely and loving evening … with yourself or your partner.
I just discovered this place …
Do you love wine? Then Caldari di Ortona, a commune in Abruzzo, Italy is for you. Three months ago they opened a free, yes free, wine fountain that is open to all guests 24/7. And even better, why not combine it with a love trip or a pilgrimage along the Cammino di San Tommaso, or route of St Thomas, between Rome and Ortona?
Quote I’m reflecting on …
This quote spoke to me recently: Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead – Oscar Wilde
