I got up at 6:00, exercised and dressed for work.  I was able to Skype with the Philly family today.  It was good to at least see everyone for a minute and hear their voices.  They were fixing hamburgers and getting ready for company tonight.

We worked in the rain today.  I built up my watermelon bed with crushed rock, fertilizer, compost, and mulch.  Then I helped John mulch some trees.  John inspected my watermelon bed.  He mowed over the grass I pulled out of the row.  I bagged up the plastic that got pulled out of the row, and I got stung by a few ants in the process.  Now if the watermelon seeds will sprout, I will be able to plant them.  Then we staked three bean plants.  By the time we got through today, my feet were squishing water in my shoes.

It was a rainy day.

The watermelon row.
Lunch was 1/3 papaya, 1/3 star apple, 1/3 mango, 1/3 avocado, banana, and coconut.  Penny ate green leaves with her fruit to help control her sugar.  She is a Type 1 diabetic.

After lunch, Penny and I walked around the property, and I showed her the fruit trees.  I felt tired and slept until consultations at 2:00.

Penny and John
Penny had to take an insulin injection after lunch because her sugar went up.  If her insulin goes to 10 or above she will take insulin.  She went 100% raw in 2009 and was able to go without insulin.  She was also testing everything she ate against a blood sugar muscle test.  But the blood sugar started going up agin after some other treatments and she had to start on the insulin again.

I did my computer work in the afternoon.  I checked emails, Facebook, listened to a Dan McDonald video, and sent in my History of Nature Cure lesson.  I chatted with my brother, Max, too.

Supper was lettuce leaves, tomato, cucumber, avocado, sauerkraut, and pecans.  I didn't want my dates.

Today I felt like I was having menstrual cramps.  Of course, I'm not.  I asked the doctor why.  It's because healing is taking place in that area.  It makes me want to stay in bed, though.

I practiced flute, studied anatomy, and read.
