Enjoying life again

Sunday I took the Amtrak from Jefferson city to Kirkwood, MO. It was very relaxing and beautiful views. The train ran along the Missouri river quite a bit. The right side of the train had, views of blooming trees. walls of stone and rock. some hills were as tall as some of the mountains in West Virginia.There were nice homes and vacation spots. Time flew by, it only took about 2 hours. It was exciting when a commercial train flew past. They were faster than fast. It was like watching a blur with glimpse of a view between the cars.
My friend was waiting for me at the station. It was so nice to be in St. Louis again. But I felt like a visitor now rather than, Hay I'm home. This was hard to digest.
My nose went to work as soon as I stepped on the ground. The smell of food was every where. We then hopped in her truck. And went to one of my favorite chines buffets. And popped in for a visit to another friend named Kim. 
The next day started out with me being spoiled with pancakes and coffee.
We spent a relaxing day together. Then off to down town St. Louis. Where we grabbed a bite to eat at Union station. I spotted a photo booth like when we were kids. So we jumped in and cheated. We snapped a photo with our cell phone.  I looked around as we ate. many stores were closed. It is another sign of the rescission in full swing. There were some coin operated kid rides. I laughed and said we should hop on and act like kids again. But it was just kidding. We would have been thrown in the looney bin.
So off we went to stand in a line that was around the corner and down the next street. The Oprah show filled the building 35-3800 seats. We were in orchestra row k seat 11-12. It was like 11 rows back from the stage far left.
Here is a silly video of us rocking to the music.
Being kids again.

Oprah's life class was awesome !
Have a wonderful day and remember to laugh and play.

There is true magic in silence
You can hear and feel,your own heat beat.
experience fully the depth of your breath
And if you can silence your mind
you may even hear the whispers
messages full of answers
healing & joyful

As it starts with a whisper
a clue, a book will open
you may be sitting in a diner
then you over hear a conversation containing the clue
Who would believe you found the answer
as you walked down the road.
a sign a drawing, a smile

A simple whisper would do
but no I need a truck to fall on my head
or some one to push me out of bed.
I like things the hard way

wake up
Even your hamster on a wheel
holds wisdom
You can not keep doing the same thing
over and over
try something new

watch out for all the clues
it is that simple
God will whisper in your ear
all you need to do is listen.

Day 2

The juice tasted much better cold. But the scale say's -6oz
So we will see what the next few days bring. Hubby got up and went back to bed. So I did not see his weight for today, or get him to drink more Veggie juice with barley powder. See post 1 for more info on the diet experiment.

I can say I feel a bit better too. I was up with Jeremy till about 12:30 or so. His ear hurt. So I used the warm moist heat of long grain rice placed in a sock. Microwaved 2 minutes.And olive oil on a cotton ball inserted in his ear. This morning he is much better. And he drank 1/4 cup of the juice mix. He said it was good. So he is going to join in on the experiment. His weight is 118.8.

Diet experiment

 I was on facebook the other day and saw my niece posted she was loosing a pound a day. Using the product she was referred by her aunt in Florida.
I inquired. Her Aunt added me to her friends list.
She states she lost 75 pounds and is cancer free now.
I have done some internet searches. I included the links for you to look at more info on barley. But I am not including the link to the expensive product she took. I am going to buy local some of the ingredients.  

The first products I looked at contained only powdered juice from barley and alfalfa, at a price of $39.50 for 8.5 oz.
The other product was $59.95 
it was compared to $2.00 per a serving
Ingredients, powdered juice from   organic carrots, beets, barley leaves, Alfalfa, and brown rice syrup solids.

So I decided to go to a local health food store today. 

I found powdered barley grass it was $16 per a pound. I bought 1/4 lb for $4.
 Links :
I read Click here
"Green Food" May Fight Several Types Of Cancer, Clear Up Skin Problems, And Heal Ulcers. So she was right. She had liver cancer."
Link 2
 Barley grass is said to be the only vegetable on Earth which can supply all the nutrients which the human body needs from birth to old age.
My thought was wow,
So today I took 1 can of vegetable juice that contained "tomato,carrot,celery,beet, parsley. lettuce, water crest, spinach, " poured 1/2 cup added 1/2 tea spoon of barley. And both me and Hubby drank !/4 cup
I plan to drink this amount every morning. then try 2x a day

I realize a complete over hall of food should be done. But baby steps. I will only be test driving this for 30 days. And change nothing else.
Next month I will add Alfalfa.

There were many people saying the 2 expensive items along with a veggie rich diet cured lupus, chronic fatigue,   And many other aliments.
So I thought I would try the basic ingredients. And hope it improves hubby's heart and health issues.If we loose weight so be it.

A poem

Soul speaks
Here I am
Both bright and free
In spirit not many can see
Although if you get close enough
(....      You can feel my energy   ` ....)
May I say, I love the way, we share our day
energy to energy
I feel your glow
Soul to mind you know this is so

As we go forth on the tree of life, branch by branch, life becomes bright
Have a wonderful day and remember to laugh and play.Photobucket
