I was going to get to bed on time tonight. Yeah, right. It’s 11 o’clock. 2300 hours.
It was almost midnight when I called it a day last night. If I didn’t eat raw food, I wouldn’t be able to keep up the pace. I was up a little after 6 and did BodyFlex, LSEs, and a 73 second pushup.
I made a discovery when I was taking a shower. My first tick of the season was buried in my left knee. I guess the inspector didn’t look there. When I got out, I put some Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap of the hemp/tea tree oil flavor on the tick and then pulled it out with tweezers. It was intact. I left the soap on my leg. Tea tree oil is supposed to have antiseptic qualities. I burned the tick. I’m not kind to them.
29 ozzies grapefruit juice
36 ozzies banana/romaine smoothie (it took me almost until lunch time to drink it)
3 tomatoes with Tajin (eaten at 3 pm EDT)
1 pint strawberries/16 ozzies OJ smoothie
2 quarts watermelon
1 young coconut
3 quarts salad (romaine, green curly leaf, 1/4 medium red onion, half a small avocado with 3 C mango/tomato dressing)
Unknown quantity chunks of pineapple
Today is the day the rates went up on postage. I had a terrible time with the scale until one of my co-workers came to my rescue. It had the same problem with her once and she knew what to do. I think everyone in the USA was calling the Pitney-Bowes help line. I’d dialed until the number was burned in my brain.
I was the bank/post office person today. I ran into one of my former co-workers at the bank, the post office, and the grocery store. She had asked if I were still “doing the raw food thing”. I told her it would be two years next month. I got the standard questions about energy and enough protein. She took my card. I don’t know if she’ll look it up or not.
Today was busy all day long and the office was fully staffed. I finally got through all my backed up e-mail. Tomorrow should be better.
I had my lunch outside. The wasp came and was intent on my tomatoes but it didn’t like them as much as the smoothie.
Since I was so busy, I didn’t have a chance to call the CSA from work. As soon as I got home, I called but didn’t get an answer or an answering machine. I e-mailed and will try again tomorrow.
I also tried calling my DIL to wish her a happy birthday. I left my greetings on the answering machine.
I’m sleepy. Think I’ll go to bed. Good night to everyone out in CyberSpace!
