Rainy Day

I woke up early but didn't get up until 5:15.  I have some detox symptoms...thirsty and bad taste in my mouth.  I read my Bible, and then worked on the computer.

I cleaned my cabins and cleaned out my Lugable Loo.  I cleaned in the dining room and kitchen until 11:00.  It was a good start, but there will be more work to be done in the kitchen tomorrow.

There is a wasp nest in the bathroom.  When I got out of the shower, I flung the towel up to go over my wet hair and one of those suckers stung me.  Other than the initial sting, it didn't bother me.  I can't even see where it stung me.

Lunch was half of a watermelon and half of a coconut (not grated).  I took it to my cabin and ate while I read a condensed Mary Higgins Clark book called You Belong to Me.

About 3:30 p.m. it started to look like rain.  I decided to go up to the kitchen and get the food for my supper and bring it to my cabin so I wouldn't have to go out in the rain.  I ran into Jonathon when I was leaving the dining room.  We had a nice long chat and then went over to check out the yellow sapotes to see if there were any ripe ones.  We found three ripe ones, and Jonathon took them home with him.

When I got back to my cabin, the rain started.  It was my first tropical thunderstorm.  The wind blew so hard that my curtains were standing straight out and all the loose things were blowing around in my room.  I had to shut the windows and doors!  It sounded like hail hitting the roof, but Eddie said it was twigs and limbs blowing out of the trees.

Supper was avocado, lemon, cucumber, sauerkraut, pecans, date, and star apple.

After the storm, the sun popped out for a while.

Eddie says he's feeling better today.  He's reading about how to prevent tooth decay.  He's interested in this right now because his son has three cavities.

It began to rain again, but it wasn't as stormy.  I took my laptop back to the office at 5:30 to get ready for John's call.  At 6:00 I got Eddie over to the office for his consultation.  For some reason, John never called.  So Eddie and I just looked at my Facebook page and talked about food until 6:45 when we gave up on John.

Eddie told me about a way to make seed cheese using Rejuvelac as a starter.  I need to get that recipe.  He explained that as we age our bodies cannot digest meat very well.  We don't need a lot of meat or fish as we get older.

Still raining.  I knitted on my cap and finished You Belong to Me.
