Once again we let the lines go and went on anchor up in the lakes. We made it as last boat through the lock yesterday with 9 minutes to spare! Woke up to this beautiful view this morning. Misty but warm and nice.
A great miniweekend.



God natt, good night, goede nacht, buenas noches, boa noite, buonanotte.

All different languages meaning the same thing.

Languages is funny. i love learning new words, put them into sentences, say something totally incorrect and then learn the correct by a local. It is difficult to leran Dutch especially in Amsterdam as everyone speaks English and it is crowded with tourists.

But I refuse!

When I go to a bar, resaturant, shop or get a question from someone I answer in Dutch and I ask my questions, order my food in Dutch. I try and I get better everyday. I can have conversations, follow a tv program, do test and read magazines now. That is pretty cool.

It is pretty awsome to learn a new language again, last time was Spanish over 15 years ago and most of it is forgotten. I can`t really remember when i learned English as I learned it at very young age. All Swedes do. :)

But I remember that when you learn a new language it is like a new world opens up around you.

When my Dutch is fluent ( wich is has to be in a year) I will go over to catch up the Spanish again…

Why lemons?

Lemons are packed like a clown car with nutrients, including vitamin C, B-complex vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and fiber. (Fun fact: they contain more potassium than apples or grapes!)

Because of how hard lemon juice can be on the enamel of your teeth, it’s important to dilute it with water of any temperature (though lukewarm is recommended). Drink it first thing in the morning, and wait 15 to 30 minutes to have breakfast. This will help you fully receive the benefits of lemon water, which are listed below.

11 Benefits of Lemon Water

1. Gives your immune system a boost.

Vitamin C is like our immune system’s jumper cables, and lemon juice is full of it. The level of vitamin C in your system is one of the first things to plummet when you’re stressed, which is why experts recommended popping extra vitamin C during especially stressful days.

2. Excellent source of potassium.

As already mentioned, lemons are high in potassium, which is good for heart health, as well as brain and nerve function.

3. Aids digestion.

Lemon juice not only encourages healthy digestion by loosening toxins in your digestive tract, it helps to relieve symptoms of indigestion such as heartburn, burping, and bloating.

4. Cleanses your system.

It helps flush out the toxins in your body by enhancing enzyme function, stimulating your liver.

5. Freshens your breath.

It also helps relieve toothaches and gingivitis (say wha?). Because the citric acid can erode tooth enamel, either hold off on brushing your teeth after drinking lemon water or brush your teeth before drinking it.

6. Keeps your skin blemish-free.

The antioxidants in lemon juice help to not only decrease blemishes, but wrinkles too! It can also be applied to scars and age spots to reduce their appearance, and because it’s detoxifying your blood, it will maintain your skin’s radiance.

7. Helps you lose weight.

Lemons contain pectin fiber, which assists in fighting hunger cravings.

8. Reduces inflammation.

If you drink lemon water on a regular basis, it will decrease the acidity in your body, which is where disease states occur. It removes uric acid in your joints, which is one of the main causes of inflammation.

9. Gives you an energy boost.

Lemon juice provides your body with energy when it enters your digestive tract, and it also helps reduce anxiety and depression. (Even the scent of lemons has a calming effect on your nervous system!)

10. Helps to cut out caffeine.

I didn’t believe this until I tried it, but replacing my morning coffee with a cup of hot lemon water has really done wonders! I feel refreshed, and no longer have to deal with that pesky afternoon crash. Plus, my nerves are thankful.

11. Helps fight viral infections.

Warm lemon water is the most effective way to diminish viral infections and their subsequent sore throats. Plus, with the lemon juice also boosting your immune system, you’ll simultaneously fight off the infection completely.

So start today with a glass of lemonwater every morning and feel the diffrence.
