The month of May is full with activities.. Maayke and Nini (daughters) come to spend their holiday with us, we finally see our best friends, who will come for a week. Many former clients come to have their vacation in Ibiza, and want to have just a cup of coffee (Brabants… “bakkie”) with us. Some want still a treatment or a check as in the old days. In short, the month of May is fully booked and the season is not even really started!
At the bottom of the home page of our Web site, you will find a place where you can sign up for the newsletter. First I wanted to mention all kinds of interesting facts in the blog, now I have decided that I’m going to keep it mostly informal and, of course, I exchange with what professional well-intentioned advice, but the full health insights will go through the newsletter. So if you are interested, sign up!! (At the bottom of the page)
Then there is another mark I want to point out. People keep asking me via Facebook, what´s app and mail, about lifestyle and healthy food. Now and than I give some reminders in the blog, but when you want to know more, you can alway ask via the place for messages underneath this blog. That would be very nice to do, because when you have a question most of the time others have the same question but don´t ask. And when we publish it, everyone can join the information.
So feel free to put messages here, I will answer them as soon as possible!
The month of May is also the month of the garden and mother’s day;-) Mother’s day is (the dutch mother´s day) not really something we always celebrate, too commercial in our view. However, it is a nice start for, for example, planting an avocado tree! Everywhere on the internet it is written how healthy avocados are. I do believe that, but I do not believe that the agricultural sector is really thinking about our health. So I’m a little (lot) skeptical about the healthy percentage of the avocado ´ s in the supermarket. After all, that ripen on their transport, and do not enjoy the Sun. Fortunately, plenty of avocado trees grow on Ibiza, and so when I can have my own tree in the garden, our guests of the retreat or other guests can fully enjoy truly healthy toxic free avocado´ s. And of course we enjoy it as well!
The melons and Zucchini are sown and I have seeds of in a glass of water. The MEDLARS are starting to sprout but the melons and Zucchini not yet.
This week our drinking water is going to be tested in a lab in ibiza town. Our tap water comes from a well by the owner, and he drinks that as easy as we drink from the plastic bottles.. The water has been tested the past 10 years and it came always back as fine drinking water. It will save a lot of heavy lifting of bottles and in addition I am not so happy at all with all that plastic, each brand has its own taste what is even though particularly very strange. I’ve always had the idea that there are additions which are not really acceptable, at least not for me 😉
In one of the previous blogs I have written, that we had a frog in the pool. So a frog in the chlorinated water, I find it strange. Seemingly, there is not so much bleach in it. The owner keeps the pool (thankfully) and seems to be very careful with chemicals. Anyway, today, Mr. Frog, I think, decided that his visit has ended, for he has left … ?? I have no idea, where he went because nowhere nearby is water, except another swimming pool.
Very strange guy, this mister Frog…
