Why we live the way we do

A few weeks ago someone pitched this comment to me ''do you think that with all you and Dave do by eating mainly a plant-based diet, using only homemade cleaning products, soaps, lip balms, deoderants and creams, biking, kayaking, all-terrain buggying, make our environment scent free (as much as possible), growing and eating organic fruits and vegetables... that you will live to 100?'' My answer was shorter than his question '' We are not trying to live to 100 but the years which we are on this earth we want them to be of good quality''. It's all about quality of life, don't you think ? We don't know how long we are on this journey so Dave and I are making the best of every single day. Our health is our main concern, we both have family histories of heart disease.

Look at these pictures - isn't this a good quality of life !!! And another thing, we live the way we do because we want to ;-)

All pictures were taken yesterday while kayaking on one of our many prestine lakes.

he he he, thanks Colleen. I hope I don't sound rude... maybe I should have said that we live this way because "we can" ;-)
