The Best Ever!!!

Posted on: April 3, 2007

I actually started this blog last night, but was having difficulty downloading photos, and it’s a blog that must have photos. You’ll read why in a minute.

Yesterday one of our durians opened…oh the joy! oh the rapture!! So, we ecstatically ate it on our balcony. Honestly, we was the BEST DURIAN EVER. Very creamy it just melted in our mouths. Was gutted when we finished, but low and behold the second one opened today so that was devoured after our evening Thai massage – such a tough life here. Offered some durian to those on the retreat, received mixed reviews!!

Anyway, here’s a couple of photos of me in my durian bliss.

Today we headed back to the market to get two more. Also came back with 2 more dragonfruits and 3 mangos and a new toy, which i will take photos of tomorrow to show you.

Have been craving natural oils as I have been eating just fruit. Avocados are out of season, but the wonderful staff here managed to find some for me. Unfortunately, the beautiful oily pears are a little hard today, but should be fine tomorrow.

What have I been eating?
Glorious fruit and some salad. Actually, I’m finding I’m not that hungry, maybe due to the heat. Am having coconut daily and tonight I tried coconut water with ice which was very delicious.
Was hpoing for some wheatgrass today, but they had sold out.

Yoga
Sunday and Monday I had a strong practice. Progressing through the Ashtanga primary series. My breath was deep and I felt strong in my core. But, today (which is a Moon Day and usually a rest day) my practice was deflated. My muscles ached, emotions were high. maybe the moon maybe due to lack of natural oils.

Tomorrow is another day!

The last couple of nights I have also had difficulty sleeping, tossing and turning. Yet, when I do nod off here and there I have the most wild dreams. I really should start writing them down as soon as I wake up. None of them are bad, scary or upsetting but wierd.

Sunday I had an Ayurveda consultation as I was interested what would come up about the raw thing. Was also an educational consultation for the ayurveda practitioner as I was the first raw vegan she had ever worked with. This morning I was handed a 20 page document explaining my doshas and what workd for me and what doesn’t. I need to go through it several times to take it all in and then I’ll share all with you.

All is good here. Am very happy and relaxed. Love spending time with my man.

I’m lucky.

That is exactly what my hubby said too. Believe me, I was.
