Weeding the Jaboticabas

I am still having computer issues.  My computer only charged up 18%, so I didn't even try to get on Sunday morning.  Ben brought over the generator, and they charged the solar batteries for several hours.

It rained again.  This is the dry season, but since I've been here, it has rained more days than not.  No sun = No sunbathing.

My first job was to weed the Jaboticabas that are planted along the fence row.  I got about a quarter of them done when I had to switch jobs and mulch the custard apples John was feeding. It's good exercise shoveling mulch into a wheel barrow, pushing it all up to the trees, and shoveling it out around the trees.  It takes a wheel barrow full per tree.  We fed and mulched six trees today.

I saw a witchy grub today ....disgusting.  The aborigines used to eat them   They must have been desperate.

I woke up tired ... even thought about not getting up at all.  But decided the work would be good for me.  I had extreme dizziness while weeding.  and while pushing the wheel barrow full of mulch I started having sharp, stabbing pains in my stomach.  Just temporary.  It's all good.  No pain.  No gain.

For lunch I had papaya, avocado, and a few bites of pineapple and coconut.  I saved the rest of my lunch for supper since I wasn't very hungry.

I washed my hair and tried rolling it on rollers.  It reminded me of the 60's when we rolled our hair on big curlers.  We would run around in curlers all day so our hair would look good in the evening.

I am studying vaccinations right now.  I would like to impress upon everyone to educate yourself on the dangers of inoculating yourself with disease poisons.

I was able to get on the internet for a little while in the afternoon.  I had an email from Molly announcing that grand-daughter Ashlyn now has pierced ears!   Woo Hoo Ashie!!

Supper was 1/2 avocado, 1/2 pineapple, banana, coconut, a little sauerkraut, 1 date, and some pecans.

That's it for now.  Stay safe and be happy.
