A good friend recently brought me a bag of wonderful Meyer lemons from her daughter's tree in California.
I've been using them to make lemon water and guzzling it as a spring tonic.
Years ago when I was ill (physically, not mentally . . . truth to tell, mental health was probably involved, too), I worked with an amazing naturopath. When I was undergoing a total body detoxification, she suggested I fill a half gallon jar of water every morning and try to drink it all in a day's time. I did that with no problem and know it was beneficial. (Hmmm, maybe I should try that again now to see how it affects me. Although I think I drink an adequate supply each day, I suspect I don't drink that much on a regular basis.)
One of the reasons we decided to purchase this particular piece of land many years ago was that it had an established drilled well with a good flow of excellent tasting water that tested out clean and pure. The well we had drilled on our previous homestead in this county had perfectly awful water, and not much of it. It tested safe to drink but the taste of it flavored anything in which it was used. Ugh.
We believe having a source of good, plentiful water is not just important but vital, and we feel very appreciative of ours. When we remodeled the house and grounds here we had a hand pump put on our well so that we would always have the option of hand pumping our supply of water even if we had no electricity.
Do you have an ample supply of "good" water where you live? And do you think you drink enough water each day?
