Phoebe's Birthday

I Skyped the Philly family at 7:00 a.m. my time...5:00 p.m. their time.  It was Phoebe's birthday, so I got to see her presents and hear about her birthday cake.  She showed me the money she got in the card we sent.  She said, "Grandjan, I need more money".  I told her I would tell Pepaw.  She also told me she saw me in the sky.  She thinks I am on every plane that goes over.  What a hoot!   Fun call.  I'm so happy I got to talk to Harris, Amy, Caleb, and Connor, too.

I also got to talk to Travis on a separate Skype call for a few minutes before I had to go to work.  Today I planted four tomatoes, cut the vine off the fence around the pineapples and tomatoes, and did some domestics in the guest cabins.

Lunch was black sapote, papaya, avocado, sapadilla, banana, and coconut.

I washed my hair today, and it turned out okay without a hair dryer.  I used a leave in conditioner and some Bedhead Manipulator.  I guess I am not 100% pure and natural when it comes to my hair.

We went to Mareeba after lunch.  I bought two packages of Sugar Baby watermelons.  John got a package of Honey Dew melon.  John bought some cow manure to give them a boost.  I will plant these in the ground and not worry about sprouting them first.  I never did get those other seeds to sprout.

We went to the Anza Garden Center where John paid $70.00 for two little tropical apple trees...$35.00/each.

I worked on the computer in the afternoon...checked messages, looked at acreage on-line, and sent in my lesson on Stanley Lief.  Stanley Lief practiced straight Nature Cure.  He said disease is a state of toxemia often brought about by eating habits.  I know that's right.  Other causes can be overwork and stress, accumulation of waste, and strain or injury.

To avoid colds, keep the body free of toxins.  A cold will purify the system if you treat it properly...stop eating...get plenty of fresh air...and rest in bed.

Supper was salad dressing of lemon juice, olive oil, honey, and parsley.  Veggies were lettuce, cucumber, tomato, avocado, sauerkraut.   And pecans.

Tina had to cancel on playing flutes tonight, so I practiced by myself.
