|the daily hikes are rejuvenating to the spirit|
This morning I woke up with a nagging headache. When I went to light a fire last night, I didn't realize that the flue was closed from the cleaning. I think some smoke got into the house until I quickly opened it. It's amazing what smoke and fumes can do to our lungs in a short time. I aired out the cabin today.
|Lula and I hiked portions of both of these trails over the weekend|
I wasn't sure if the smoke caused my ill feelings, or if I was fighting off a bug. I took a hot shower, washed my hair, and then soaked in a hot bath with epsom salts and baking soda. That's a powerful and healthy way to clear the aura. I had taken a sauna last night, so I probably should have washed my hair. I didn't want to go to bed with it still wet, and was exhausted from all of the hiking and walking. I felt slightly weak. I am very sensitive to energy. If you sweat like mad, you probably should shampoo. I was too lazy, so I just took a cold shower. My scalp felt yucky.
|I love the feeling of the earth beneath my feet|
I ingested a couple of cloves of fresh garlic, (which I chopped up into tiny pieces and swallowed like pills,) and laid out on the chaise lounge in the sunshine. I relaxed and listened to the birds out there. At night when I take Lula out to go potty, I can hear an owl's soft song, "Who, who." It sounds like she is right above me, and wish I could see her. I adore owls. A considerate neighbor is quietly sawing wood to prepare for the winter. The birds seem to hide during the day. It's as if they are not used to being seen by people. I can hear them chattering, so I sit very still and try to find them. Sometimes I stand on the wraparound deck bench and lean against the Jeffrey pine. It's a challenge to locate their silhouettes. I can feel the movement of the trunk of the tree behind my back. We sway together. How is your health today?
