Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

Vodka slows aging…

In cut flowers. Seriously, a little vodka in the water works as a preservative, interfering with the plants ripening process. So, they last longer and look fresher. Hmmmm… I know what your thinking. I’ll start the research/experiments and let you know the ‘vodka effect’ on people.

    Tammy, I was linked to your blog from Andrea Bellamy’s blog Heavy Petal. There is a picture of a Houseboat garden on the sunshine coast. Could you give me any details on where that was or if you know anything else about it? I’m planning to build my own and I would like to learn from the experience of others.Thank you,ChrisVictoria BC

    Hi christopher,I don’t know too much about the houseboat. It’s in Gibsons BC Right on the main dock by Molly’s Reach. The photo is of the houseboat and a portion of the dock that the garden has expanded onto. That’s about all i know.. just snaped the pic because i thought Andrea would like it. If you do end up in Gibsons try the water from the city fountain – it’s the best ever!

    I completely agree with Tammy that Vodka slows aging. It is said that pouring a citrus-flavored soda or an alcohol like vodka into the water in which the cut flowers are kept will prolong the time flowers stay fresh. Floriculturists confirm that in the correct proportion, this mixture will keep a bouquet bright, providing it water and food. And what about your second research Vodka effect on people.Vodka can be paired with food and cigar.I choose to Buy Cigars online.

Three days at a silent retreat might seem terrifying to some, but this introvert loved it. Here are a few reasons why. No tech, after taking a few pictures I surrendered my phone. The need to capture everything that caught my eye was replaced with a hunger to observe everything deeply. Practicing the ancient art of pen writing. I spent time with my thoughts, journaling and doodling them out. Without Google to ask, I spent more time thinking things through, exercising my problem solving skills. I perused the library and rekindled my love for books. I just wish I could find a copy of that book I didn’t finish. The tea station with every imaginable fresh herb 🌿 for bespoke creations. I’m not a foodie, but I do love when food is healthy and so well prepared that I’d choose it over a burger and fries. The evening campfires reminded me of home. And I burned some baggage 🧳 I’m ready for a longer silent stay if anyone has any local suggestions. #silentretreat #bali #retreat #digitaldetoxchallenge
One of the most memorable places I stayed in Bali was north @villageabovetheclouds I woke up, meditated, ate, and practiced yoga with a view of the countryside and rice fields. #ricefields #bali #baliindonesia #sunrise
Singapore you surprised me! My Australian visa didn’t come through in time so I made a last minute switch at the airport to @singapore Such a unique and beautiful country. Clean and safe streets, architecture mixed with nature, and lively cultural pockets around every corner. Highlights for me were little Turkey, India, and Chinatown, and the food! #singapore #travel #nature #gardensbythebay #sentosaisland #singaporesling #longbar
Here are few pictures from my last few days in Canggu. The first is after sunset @finnsbeachclub then @desaseni_avillageresort after a sunrise yoga flow class, the view from my patio, and the bike I’ve been trying to explore with but trying to stay out of Canggu rush hour has been tough #bali #canggu #canggubali #finnsbeachclub #sunset
Loving Gili Air the most of all the places I’ve been so far. Pics are of the boat ride over and then my early morning walk pre and post sunrise 🌅 #lovegili #sunrise #baliindonesia
Just finished my first Tantric Hatha yoga class, loved it. Early morning focus on bringing the breath into the naval/belly to help release negative energy 😁 #yoga #canggu #bali #2020tayfa
