A VERY Special Day

Yesterday was a special day....nope.......... yesterday was a VERY special day.
Daughter dear celebrated another birthday and as usual we went out to lunch.
This year she chose a totally vegetarian restaurant because I have started back on my path to healthy eating.
I was quite busy yesterday but I still managed to squeeze in lunch with my one and only chickee.
I thank God everyday for blessing me with this amazing human beloved daughter.

After taking care of a few errands we headed into the city to have lunch at Organic Earth.

Organic Earth
Raw Vegan Kitchen & Eatery
 Located at #24 Pelican Craft Village on Prices Alice Highway, Bridgetown

   The vegan eatery is in a peaceful shady area surrounded by mature trees amidst the hustle and bustle of the lower city environs.
 The outdoor terrace where we had our lunch was nice and cool.
 On the inside of the "Live Food" eatery is a Wholistic Clinic and the shelves displayed a wide selection of herbal items for a healthy lifestyle..

 Daughter dear had the Gourmet Veggie Souse with Avocado, Cucumber, Tomatoes, Onion, Lime  and Parsley.  (No coconut jelly was available).

She loves eating healthy too.

 I opted for the Rawesome Pizza Slice with a sweet potato crust and topped with fresh seasonal veggies.
We shared a bottle of Green Monkey juice made with Cucumber, Celery, Apple and Lemon.

 I had to beg her for this photo op....see that face of "aww Mum this again?"

Happy Birthday Nat!!!

Happy New Year 2019!!!

It's a brand new year and I can't believe it's already galloping along.
It's more than a week old and I'm now wishing everyone a Happy New Year!!! 
Is this an indication of what the rest of the year will be like...I hope not.
Last year was not the best year and I'm really glad that it's over. 
I am looking forward to living a healthy life, fulfilling dreams and being debt free.
I wish the BEST of everything for all of you and may this year be the BEST one EVER!!!

Four years ago

December 16, 1955 - September 22, 2014
Four years went away.....missing you so very much.
The most doting dad in the world.
I took this photo of him playing airplane with Nat...lying there contentedly lifting her above his head repeatedly while she laughed and cooed...their bond unbreakable.
We gathered the prettiest blooms from the garden and went to his grave on Saturday....our family chain complete for those moments we stood there talking to him....he will always be in our hearts.

Bathsheba - A Relaxing Weekend Part 5 - Our Last Day

May 1st...May Day bank holiday...and here I was saying goodbye to home for the last three days.
We had to take one last long morning stroll.

The early light of dawn was waking up the seashore for a new day.
Wake up's a new day.
Another day of life....another day to be truly thankful for.
New clouds for a new day
New bracing breezes and fresh air for a new day.
Here comes the sun.
The sun rises in the east and we were greeting the first rays of sunshine for the day on our beautiful island.
Others were also out enjoying this beautiful early morning....a group of folks on a Fund Raising Walk were fervently walking to get to their intended destination before the sun got too hot.
Somehow these pretty plants are doing well in the harsh salty air.

Despite the sargassum seaweed it was still so beautiful.
Soon it was time to say goodbye.
We had decided that we would take the 10am bus to Speightstown and then make our way home from there.

As we waited at the bus stop, the kids were preparing the grass patch ready for a game of cricket. They took turns in pushing the heavy grass roller.
With such a lovely backdrop I would have been hitting all sixes and making many runs during that game.

Suddenly a feeble looking beggar approached me for some change which I willingly gave him.
In an instant he was off running and hurriedly ran back to the shop where I presumed he would buy something to eat.  Others waiting at the bus stop informed me that he may have been hungry but not for food....if I had only known.
I just can't get enough of this view....wish I didn't have to leave it behind.

Leaving our home away from home and our lovely host Gene Marva behind made us a bit sad.
It was such an incredible relaxing weekend, and it had went by so quickly.
One thing I know for sure.........
We will be back!!!
