There was a huge toad in the bathroom this morning. He was sitting quietly in the corner. I told John it was either a frog or a coiled up snake. He checked it out and reported back that it was a toad. It's still there, so evidently John did not remove him.

We fed six trees today. That gave me plenty of exercise shoveling and pushing the wheel barrows. We planted two new trees today, too.

I watered the baby tomatoes and lettuces in the six packs. There are 54 baby tomato plants! Where are we going to plant them, I wonder?
Lunch was papaya, custard apple, avocado, banana, coconut, and passion fruit. After lunch, I spread out the tarp and sunbathed for an hour. Hopefully, the tarp will keep the ticks away. Karen sunbathed a little while, too. Today is her third day of fasting.
Consultations at 2:00. My tick bites on my head still hurt. There are two big knots similar to what you get when you are hit on the head with a bat. Shell back ticks pack a whollop.
I got my reservation switched to the right week at the Sydney Central Hostel. I had my weeks mixed up when I originally booked. I talked to John's travel agent about my flights. He can get me all four flights for a little over $600.00 total.
Supper was 3 lettuce leaves from the garden, tomato, 1/2 avocado, cucumber, sauerkraut, pecans and two dates. John asked me, "Where would you live if you could live anywhere you wanted?" That's a good question. I would like to live outside of the gated community... with 2-5 acres... a little further south...with a smaller house that we could pay cash for...but still close enough to HSV to take flute lessons and maybe get good enough to play in New Horizons Band (or hope against hope, flute ensemble)...not any further from Molly's family or Mom...close enough to go to church. So where would this ideal place be?
I practiced flute, studied pediatrics lesson, and read. My mind is troubled tonight worrying about things at home.
