Pineapple-apple smoothie

This is day 1 from a cleansing period of five consecutive days: no cheese (difficult!), no coffee, sugar nor wine, but lots of vegetables and fluids like detox tea. I support it with a course of detox tablets which stimulate the liver and intestines. So, I went for a pineapple smoothie this morning as it is in season at the moment. This afternoon I have a yoga intensive, perfect timing!

Let it snow, let it snow

When I woke up this morning and I looked out of my window I saw that it had snowed. The world was pretty white and quiet.

During the day most of it disappeared, but in the morning I went for a little walk to the Vondelpark to smell the fresh air of the snow and to feel the sunlight on my face.

It was lovely in the park. There were other people enjoying the snow, but the cyclists had a little trouble riding through it and it was a bit slippery.

After a little walk I took a coffee at a place in the park, sat down, relaxed and walked home again, refreshed and very happy. It may sound like a cliche, but to me happiness is in these little things.
