Squeaky Clean

I started the day with a walk around the neighborhood and the garden.

There is a honey bee on the moon flower!  The moon flowers were showing out this morning.

There is a butterfly on the sunflower.
 Travis and I are purging the house and getting ready for a garage sale on Friday and Saturday.  Today was another day of selecting things for the sale, getting them priced, and setting up the garage for the sale.

Breakfast:   Watermelon
Lunch:  Green Smoothies, Watermelon, Cherries, Goody Balls
Dinner:  Salad (romaine, sprouts, onion, tomatoes); Dressing (olive oil, apple cider vinegar, honey, garlic, Braggs seasoning, Himalayan sea salt); Sauerkraut; Zucchini Spaghetti with Sun Dried Tomato Sauce.

After dinner we drove in to Hot Springs to go to the concert performed by the Hot Springs Community Band.  The community band does a series of free concerts through the summer at Whittington Park.  Since the temperature this afternoon was between 104-107 degrees, the concert was moved to the National Park Community College gymnasium.  Everyone took their lawn chairs and set them up on the gymnasium floor.  It was a good concert.  The theme was Movie Night so the music was all from the movies we know and love.

A principle of Natural Hygiene:  We need to be squeaky clean if we are to succeed.  Our bodies are resilient, and we have plenty of leeway for making mistakes and correcting them, but if we want to reach the potential for what Natural Hygiene has to offer then we must be squeaky clean.

In cases of severe illness there may not be much leeway.  And the older we get, the less room we have to play around.  The body always tries to do the best it can with the materials it is given to work with, but if it is already bogged down with morbid matter it's important to stop adding to it's work load.  The older we get, the less efficient this cleansing process becomes.  Besides all that, living a squeaky clean life is not really a burden.  It's a joy!  So let's do it!

Adapted from The Quintessence of Natural Living:  We need self-discipline in order to succeed.  All of us need conditioning.  Fresh air, hard exercise and a diet free of stimulates relieves tension better than adult beverages.  These is less anxiety, we are able to relax better, there is a better self-image and confidence.  We become more extroverted.

To health and happiness.
