I haven’t gotten a blessed thing done.

That is, except for fool with this computer, join a new ISP (BasicISP), exercise, sun, and eat raw food. I did get on the forum some, too.

I got up after 8 o’clock which was nice but it sure threw me late getting around to everything. After doing all of my exercises (including an 82 second pushup) and showering, I went out for half an hour in the sun. When I came back in and started fixing my first meal of the day, it was noon.

Food

24 ozzies grapefruit juice
Exactly 32 ozzies OJ/mango smoothie
The rest of the pale watermelon–I didn’t have it in anything so I could measure it but I’d guesstimate maybe a little over 2 quarts
The last 2 Campari tomatoes (I started the fermentation process for the seeds from one of them) (I’ll give most of these to My Farmer)
16 ozzies banana/mint smoothie–YUMMY!
2 quarts (more or less) salsa with organic onion, garlic, dill, cucumber, and red sweet pepper with NO SALT! I also added a small avocado.

Not enough to eat today and too much fat with the avocado but I can’t go back and do it over.

My daughter called just as I was trying to get back on the unfamiliar ISP. It’s nothing but a connection. I could have an e-mail account but I don’t need another one. We talked for over an hour. She was telling me that my SIL had bought some praying mantis egg sacks and they’ve hatched. They kind of give her the willies. I think they’re cute the way they’ll cock their little heads and look at you with their beady eyes. He let four of them go in the house. I asked her what their cat thinks of them but he hasn’t encountered one yet. Or she isn’t aware of it if he has. It reminded me about the huge spider I saw on the top step the other day. It was a full three inches across the span of legs. The abdomen was the size of a baby mouse. I let it be and came on in the house. Yesterday, I was in my bathroom and (I have no idea why) I looked in the tub. There it or its close relative was, sitting in the bathtub! I got a bowl, put it over the spider, and slid a piece of paper underneath, held it so it couldn’t get out, and took it out to some weeds and let it go. I don’t kill spiders and that one was so big it would have been like committing murder. I don’t see how it could build a web to support itself.

Well, that’s been my day. Hope everyone else got something accomplished. Good night!

    I’m not 100% sure, but isn’t a praying mantis capable of spitting a toxic venom that can blind you? Just something way back in the cobwebed recesses of my mind…could be some other insect.

    Must be something else. I’ve read that a praying mantis can be a pet (they can grow to be quite large for an insect) and will drink water from your hand if they are thirsty. 🙂
