Saturday in my concrete jungle
This nature world is very beautiful for me and a lot of what is created by man too, it admires and wonders me, and seeing it makes me feel beautiful, good things and walking through it without tone or are, makes me happy, invites me to go for a walk, like today, that I haven't walked around the surroundings not so close to home for a long time, and it usually happens that I let myself go for the moment until it gets late at night.
And when it comes to deciding which path I'm going to explore, I tell myself: "If I take this little path it's better, if I walk a little more, maybe I'll have a better view, the best of all is that even among the urban concrete it feels good to breathe clean and fresh air, you can see the beautiful shapes, colors and lights of the sky around the buildings, the bushes and cross paths with someone, a stranger who goes out to walk in silence like me.
On that walk on Saturday morning I went walking to Laura's house a good friend who was glad to see me arrive and once guided me to her backyard with many fruit trees and some orchids that she has blooming in that cool and warm garden. I was surprised that they are so beautiful hanging from a mango tree trunk and exposed to the inclemency of a downpour or a gale that sifts and strips them until they become nothing.
Laura told me that they bloomed on March 8th on the International Women's Day despite the strong weather we have in my city, also very close to the orchids I met this pair of very funny and talking parrots, their names are Roberto and Albertina with whom I was imitating their sounds for a while.
The heat wave brought us an unexpected visitor, a mantis with a "hi, I'm here”; what beautiful thing nature has, just when I was passing by, she was passing by, or he, I don't know if it's male or female, but he visited us; if he happened to pass by before or shortly after we wouldn't have seen each other, or found each other.
Already back in the afternoon at home the heat and humidity had me very thirsty and dry, in this climate of my city you have to drink a lot of water, besides putting the whole house almost in darkness and closing everything so that the sun does not hit too hard, my house has large windows, with many spaces where there is shade, I like to feel the current of fresh and natural air, even if it is hot; when it is intolerable I turn on the central AA.
My secret to take the heat off after walking is Mead, I feel it as my soul-hug
And when I'm really thirsty, what better isotonic, invigorating and relaxing drink to hydrate, remineralize, energize and is very easy to make, always I have on hand. How do I prepare it? With these three ingredients: drinking water, natural honey and lemon, but I don't let it ferment, I'm already telling you how my invention is prepared for this eternal summer weather.
I freeze three bottles of water (this is my dose to consume over the weekend) leaving one part unfilled because the volume of the water increases when it freezes, with the juice of a lemon (vitamin C), a teaspoon of raw honey (natural antiseptic) that I use, and a "thank you, thank you, thank you nature" and other shamanic magic words, voilà... and inwards...lol.
To be able to drink the mead even if it is all frozen I fill the space that was left free with tap water and that's it, haha I save the cubes and I always have revitalized rich and fresh water, and so I drink it in shop type sips, this is my refreshing formula, so I rejuvenate my body integrated with the vitamins found in raw honey, lemon and water that is a source of life.
Today I felt very good visiting Laura, nature and my city, they are my source of happiness, my cable to earth, I am in it, you have to live what I have everywhere to feel alive. There are so many worlds in this one that we do not know, as there are I's in us to discover.
This day ends and before entering my house I look up to contemplate the beauty that I have in infinite abundance like this wonderful magical sky that gives me a smile with clouds of cotton flakes between my urban concrete city, sky lights and nature by everywhere

One thing I hate is humidity. Lucky me, humidity is not high in my country. Good for you that you can drink that cold water. I drink hot tee even if it's 30°C outside 😂
When I go to the restaurant in supper and as for tea after lunch, they always ask me if I want ice tea. No darling, hot tea pleas I tell the and thy are always shocked.
hahaha OMG Erika I only drink hot tea at night before going to bed, but during the day I almost always drink a lot of warm water and on weekends I usually prepare my dose of mead the super hydrating that I love, here the humidity is very high between 30 -40% and the thermal sensation 50 degrees you can imagine for something they say to my city the beloved land of the sun, and even the strongest months do not come May, June, July, and August are uffff very warm.
After eating, it can be tea or coffee if it is espresso, better for good digestion.
I celebrate your sensory acuity, I say this because you can enjoy everything around you to the fullest. That beautiful sky, the plants, every detail that is part of the landscape. here we also drink that drink, we call it aguamiel.
What a simple and delicious day you had.That's what the verb to live is all about🌸
Oh, it was a perfect day to create new realities with the natural environment in my city, and the sky has its magic, it is good to look up to connect with beautiful images that adorn our daily life.
Thank you very much for stopping by here 🍀
Jani, it's great that you are doing these walks and that you have the opportunity to spend some quality time with a friend. That recipe for your hydrating drink looks great, now that the weather is warmer I'll take the opportunity to try it and see how it goes.
A hug and thank you very much for sharing. 🤗✌️
Hi, Ada, thank you for your look and walk beside me in this post. It is easy to make Mead, and it works very well for me in this climate of my land, besides nourishing me, is a natural way, it refreshes my neurons hahaha.
You can give your beloved son a try too. Have the best weekend possible Ada🌞🌴
