I got up at 4:30 and read my Bible chapters. At 6:30 I went to the office to get on the computer.
I talked to Travis, Mom, Ashlyn, Molly, Ken, Zac, and Braeden on Skype. All is well with them it seems. I miss them so much. Ashlyn wrote a paper for school about her Jan-Jan being in Australia. She read it to me on Skype, and I loved it. She did mention in that article that she is expecting some presents from Australia.
Today I mowed again. The kookaburra was out as soon as the mower started. This tiny little frog was hiding...sitting very still...I could hardly see him. But the kookaburra saw him, scooped him up, and ate him. Poor baby.
The melons are beginning to put on blooms.
I met Eddie's wife, Christina. She is from Philadelphia originally, but has not been to the United States in thirty years. We talked about the famous hot and cold springs of water in Hot Springs, Arkansas. I invited them to come visit.
I finished weeding the pineapple patch today.
The rats are eating the fruit off the fruit trees just before it gets ripe. John gave me instructions to pick the star apples and the yellow sapotes every afternoon while he is gone. John leaves tomorrow for an osteopath conference on the Gold Coast and will be gone until Monday afternoon.
Lunch was papaya, star apples, banana, avocado, custard apple, yellow sapote, mango, and coconut.
I checked email and Facebook after lunch. Then I visited with Eddie while he sat out in the sun for a few minutes. I got his picture! He's very interesting to talk to. He taught me something new about the study done on Pottenger's cats. Pottenger has a lot to teach us about nutrition.
Eddie's consultation was at 2:00. This is his seventh day to fast. He still is only sleeping a couple of hours, but he felt better today than yesterday. We will set it up for him to consult with John via Skype while John is at the conference.
I practiced the flute. I finished Fallen Angel. It was good.
I studied my lesson on History Nature Cure on Nature Cure in the United States. The lesson was about Dr. Benedict Lust. I typed my lesson and sent it to John.
Supper was tomato, cucumber, sauerkraut, pecans and a date. John and I talked some more about the studies of Pottenger's cats and how our nutrition and lifestyle has an effect on generations to come. Going back to the discussion with Eddie....our longevity is not only based on what we do....it is partly based on what our parents, grandparents, even great-grandparents did. We can only do the best we can with what we have been given. Many inherited encumbrances can be overcome though.
I stripped my bed and changed my sheets. John will take the laundry in to Cairns tomorrow. I'm not going in to town this week. I gave John $12 to pick up my laundry.
I watched a DVD called The Psychology of Change by Rob Williams. Very interesting. I'd like to know more about how this works. He used muscle testing to communicate with the subconscious about its beliefs, and then rewrote the program in the subconscious to overcome limiting or harmful beliefs.
I knitted on my cap while I watched the DVD.
To health and happiness.
