I dreamed I was having a baby, but it was taking it a long time. I was in an ambulance and then at a hospital. The struggle in the dream was in trying to decide on a name for the baby before it was born. Friends and family were there for me to get feedback on the names. I finally decided on George for a boy and Missy for a girl. Crazy dream!
I heard John drive away for Cairns at 4:00 a.m. I got up at 4:30 and read my Bible chapters. I did some hand laundry this morning.
At 7:30 I went to the office for the computer. I Skyped with Amy, Caleb, Phoebe, and Connor. Precious family! Caleb laughed when I told him Travis was buying all our Christmas presents this year and said, "Maybe I'll get something expensive". What a little optimist! Phoebe was watching Scooby Doo but got on long enough to say, "I love you, Grandjan" and to tell me about her new Dora comforter. So sweet. Connor just waved and said "Night, Night". Good to talk to Amy, too.
John came in from Cairns long enough to drop off the food from the market, prepare his food to take with him, grab his suitcase and head back to Cairns to catch his flight to Surfer's Paradise where he is attending a conference.
I'm reading a condensed book called Water, Stone, Heart by Will North. I had a good visit with Eddie. Fasting sometimes gives one clarity about situations in life. He had that experience a couple of years ago. It's hard to break a fast on your own, because the discipline needed to come off the fast slowly is huge. That's why Eddie comes here.
I had lunch on my own, so I brought it to my cabin. I had coconut (not grated), 1/2 of a very large lemon, and 1/2 of a watermelon.
After lunch I read and practiced the flute. I studied my Anatomy lesson on The Digestive Tract (Part Seven) about the liver, gall bladder, and the pancreas.
I had supper in my room...cucumber, sauerkraut, pecans, date, and an orange.
Eddie and I talked about minerals and trace elements in our food. He has been an organic grower and spent about $100,000 a year replenishing the soil of his orchards. Many organic growers do not do that. Many just don't spray and then consider themselves to be organic. And then they wonder why their produce is of lower quality. The United States has an 85% loss of mineral content of the soil in the last 100 years. This, along with fast food, is a major cause of the obesity in the U.S. The people are starving even though they are full. Eddie loaned me his book, The Root of All Disease by Elmer G. Heinrick. He discusses the loss of mineralization of the soil in this book; however, he is advocating plant-based supplementation. I would rather hear more about how to rebuild our soils and how to get away from processed de-vitalized foods.
Eddie consulted with John via phone at 6:00 this evening. He said he tried to talk John into putting him on juice, but John didn't go for it.
John turned the water on the watermelons before he left, but he didn't tell me. I turned it off after he brought it up on his call. So the melons got a good soaking today.
There are ants in the office. They are crawling over my computer. Will they get inside it? I guess I'll start disconnecting it and putting it in my cabin unless I'm using it.
To health and happiness.
