A Day to Relax….

I was just thinking, who else is crochet by the light from the TV? I didn’t want to watch anything, but it’s way too quiet to go back to sleep.

I haven’t lived in New York City in a long time, and didn’t realize the sound of a city that truly never slept, kept me sleeping through the whole night. The sound of the train, a truck passing by, even a car horn every now and then was hardly noticed as I slept.

Living in NC is so quiet at night, I am grateful I am able to have some sound from my TV. I just have to turn it to a channel that I don’t care to watch, because then that will defeat the purpose of having it on so I can go to sleep.

I surprised myself this morning by having two cups of 20 ounces of water before I went for a walk.  A lyft driver had told me how he lost weight by giving up sugar (and I have cut back a lot, but Not giving it up totally) and drinking lime water. I didn’t think I was going to like it, but I do.

What are the benefits of drinking lime water?  

Flavoring water with citrus fruit, such as lime, can liven up a glass of water, encouraging reluctant water-drinkers to consume more. 

Lime water is easy to make:

  • Wash a fresh lime before cutting it.
  • Fill a glass with water and squeeze the juice from a piece of the lime into the water.
  • To make lime water ahead of time, fill a pitcher with water and squeeze in the juice of a whole lime.
  • Add lime slices to the pitcher for added flavor.
  • Drink the water within 1 day for best flavor.

I didn’t just take the drivers word, but got online and started doing my own research on it. I admit it took maybe three cups of it before I could really start liking it.

Although, I do not do it like the above directions. I cut half of a lime and squeeze it in my 20 ounce cup of room temperature filter water and enjoy. I drink regular water for the rest of the day.

 I don’t like cold water (unless I am crazy hot) and I know with the lime in it, it can’t stay out of the refrigerator for long.  I say drink it however you like and enjoy the benefits of this fruity water.

Bye IV Now, LD*
