Karen's Arrival

I slept nearly twelve hours.  I got up at 7:00 and did my hand laundry and then got on the computer.  I skyped with Amy and the kids and then with Travis.  Skype makes it much easier to talk to the family.

I have decided this is a good time to read the Bible through again while I am here.  I have read the Bible through quite a few time in the past, but it's been a while since I systematically read it through completely.  I am using the same system I have used successfully in the past.  I have divided the Bible into seven sections - Law,  History, Poetry, Major Prophets,  Minor Prophets, Gospels, and Epistles.  Right now I am reading from Genesis, Ezra, Proverbs, Isaiah,  Jonah, Acts, and 1 Timothy.  I didn't start at the beginning of each section.  I started where I was already at in my less systematic reading.  Maybe I can get through it by December.

I studied my natural hygiene lesson on James C. Thomson and got it typed up and sent to John. Lunch was papaya, custard apple, avocado, tamarillo, passion fruit, banana, longans, and grated coconut.   Also got a good sunbath and read in my Fit for Life not Fat for Life book.

We had our initial consultation with Karen.  I like her and hope she will achieve all that she is hoping for.  She will be here for 4-1/2 weeks.  She works in a toxic environment driving heavy equipment.  She is hoping to find the courage to leave her high paying job to find a healthier lifestyle.

My computer did not charge up today even though I had it plugged in.  It's only had an 11% charge.  I don't understand why.  I was able to do a few things, but I won't have any power tomorrow morning.  I'm hoping to talk to my momma on Skype tomorrow morning.

Supper was tomato, grated carrot, avocado, lettuce, lime juice, sauerkraut, dates and pecans.

There is a gecko in my room.  I don't like it, but John says he won't hurt me.  Karen says he has just come for a little visit, and it is a good omen.  There is a spider in here somewhere, too.  When I came in from the office after practicing my flute he was in the middle of the floor.  As I walked across the room to turn on the light he ran off somewhere.  Yuck!

I worked on my Lesson 41 Questions then read awhile.

Be healthy and happy.

  1. When we lived in San Antonio I loved it when we got geckos in the house. It meant less spiders so you might not have a spider in the room anymore. If I got more then to geckos in the house I caught them and put them back outside :) No Geckos here in PA but plenty of spiders!
