I got up at 5:00 to read my Bible chapters.
Travis called me on Skype, so I got to visit with my hubby. It seems all is well at home. He's going to get Magic Springs passes Sunday for 2012 for all the Arkansas family. What fun!
My son, Crockett, had a raw food breakfast and posted a picture on Facebook. I am one proud Mama.
I planted corn today. One seed of corn was planted between each pineapple in the pineapple bed. The corn will grow tall and the pineapples will grow down below. Maybe I can try this in my little garden at home. The only corn safe to eat is organic or what you grow yourself. Most corn in the United States is GMO. The corn I planted today should be ready to harvest in 100 days. I won't be here to enjoy it. I leave for home in 51 more days.
We had a water problem this morning in the shower/toilets. For the last few days the water has been muddy brown and flowing in a trickle. Today it stopped flowing at all. John had to work on it....it's patched up but not fixed. I believe the problem is that the uptake valve on the pump at the river got washed away during the rain. But whatever he did, the water is flowing really good for the time being. It is still brown and smells muddy, though. I took a shower and washed my hair in muddy water. I guess I could go to the river...the water there is clear....but it is so cold!
I helped John put much around two trees. I asked John why we put the amount of much we do around his trees, while Eddie says to put it on a foot thick. John says it depends on your resources. If you have lots of water and plenty of mulch, then you can put it on thick. If you don't have the money to buy so much mulch, then you put on less. Less mulch also enables your limited water supply to get to the tree easier.
Lunch was awesome! Eddie came to the kitchen and ate with us. We had papaya, avocado, yellow sapote, sapadilla, purple star apple, banana with macadamia nut spread, grated coconut in coconut water, and young coconut meat.
I practiced the flute and then knitted on CHH's cap.
We met with Eddie at 2:00. One of the topics of discussion was the dental arch and the removal of children's wisdom teeth. Eddie has heard of a treatment where they can widen the dental arch enough to allow room for the wisdom teeth. The removal of wisdom teeth reduces one's chewing capacity by 20-30%. Another concern is the indiscriminate use of braces on young kids. The teeth are connected to the internal organs. The whole body is affected by these dental procedures.
The body can heal from cataracts. John's father returned from the war with one eye, one lung, and a body full of shrapnel. At age 67 he developed cataracts in his only eye and lung cancer in his only lung. Up until that time he thought that what John taught about a healthy lifestyle was off the planet. But at this time he made an immediate and total change to the diet and lifestyle that John teaches...completely in harmony with Nature Cure. His good eye completely healed of cataracts and he lived another twelve years.
We consulted with Ian. John answered many questions for him. John recommended he read a book about quantum physics called Dancing Wu Li Masters by Gary Zukov.
I played on the computer until supper time. Eddie sent me the recipe for seed cheese. I plan to make it when I get home. Here is the link to the recipe.
Supper was tomato, avocado, cucumber, sauerkraut, radish, parsley, pecans and a date. All four of us had dinner together....John, Ian, Eddie, and me.
Ian, Eddie and me sat outside our cabins and visited until after dark. After I went inside, I knitted on the cap and read.
To health and happiness.
