I decided I would stay close to my usual time to get up.

As my mother would say, I’m a’yawnin’ and a’gapin’.

I did all of my exercises, I think. I may have left out something but I’m not sure. I did the most important ones, at least.


Scant 24 ozzies OJ
36 ozzies banana/mango/spinach smoothie

The other half cantaloupe
Generous two quarts watermelon (extra good!)

Kim chee
Large banana/mixed green smoothie that I chucked in the sink. The bananas were too ripe to the point of being mushy. Didn’t taste good at all.
Another two quarts watermelon (this is the best I’ve had yet this year)
5 tomato “chili”

Large salad of romaine, tomato, sweet onion, cucumber, dressed with Matt’s Dip
1 small pesto stuffed mushroom

The mushrooms are Baby Bellas. I put a few drops of Braggs Liquid Aminos in each one and I shouldn’t have. They would be better without it. The pesto was based on this recipe but I used walnuts and spinach instead of the pine nuts and kale. It was so nice to be able to go out and get all the basil I wanted out of the planters and still have lots left. It’s the first time in 18+ years. Last year, I could get maybe half a dozen leaves at the most. These plants have been much stronger.

I went out for half an hour of sun this morning and again in the late afternoon (almost too late again). It’s hazy from all the wildfires in Georgia and Florida. WE NEED RAIN!

It took multiple tries with the image for the next set of things on CafePress. Here’s the result. Once again, any profits will go to benefit the forum.

It’s late and I’m sleepy. Tomorrow it’s back to my usual routine. The long weekend is over.

Good night!

    Hello Tommie,
    Do you find that your basil plants keep producing leaves? Mine do not, and I wonder if I am doing something wrong. What has been your experience with them? I really enjoy fresh basil. Maybe a photo of basil on your next clothing design! I would probably be the only one to appreciate it…

    Pinch the tops out of them and they’ll branch out. I couldn’t get any potting soil that didn’t have fertilizer in it so mine can’t be counted as organic. I have watered it with fish emulsion, though, and it seems to like it. I think lots of people love basil. That’s a good idea about the next line. Maybe I could use one of my own photos! I don’t have one yet so I’d have to get my camera warmed up. Start thinking about something catchy to put on it, too.
