Not as much rain as I thought.

I’d looked at the rain gauge but didn’t notice the centimeters were on the left and the inches were on the right. It was “only” 1.2″. That’s still a good amount. Especially since the airport where the official numbers are recorded got .27″

I was up right at 6 and did my exercises with a small jump to a 93 second pushup.

100% Raw Food

Breakfast
21 ozzies grapefruit juice

Snack
28 ozzies salsa (I made it this morning and not many people ate it so I finished it off)

Supper
1 long greenish yellow pepper (yummy)
1.5 quarts not too good seedless watermelon I got yesterday
1 small organic tomato (delicious!)
1 small organic cucumber (okay)

I was out walking earlier than usual since it appeared it might rain. I listened to some more of the session on supplements and superfoods. Salt was brought up and did my ears burn!

My older son called and told me he knew where I would be moving. Seems a town not far away has free wireless except for a few dead spots. With my luck, the house I would live in would be one of them. There would have to be more perks than free wireless to get me to pack up and go through such a trial.

The man called from the Asian market and said they had a jackfruit for me. I asked if it would be okay to come down Sunday and he said yes. I hadn’t thought to ask before how much it would be so when I asked today, I was shocked to find out that particular one weighs 27 pounds and is $3.50 a pound! That’s $94.50 without tax! I told him I can’t afford that. He told me to come down anyway and look at it and see what I think. I think $100 for jackfruit is ‘way out of my league but I’ll go look.

The rain didn’t start until this afternoon. Nancy had brought me two small baskets of tomatoes and a box with corn, cucumbers, peppers, two Sugar Baby watermelons, and a baggie with lambsquarter in it so I can identify it here at home. The rain had really been coming down along about 3:30 so when it slacked off at 3:45, I went out with my umbrella and one basket. It took just that long to regroup and started pouring again when I was on my way back from the car. My slacks were pretty well soaked from the knees down. It was like the Lord was saying, “She wanted rain so I’m giving her rain!” And it was nice.

When I got home and unloaded, I inspected the rain gauge and it had .3″. According to the weather report, we are ahead for the month of July by .4″. That means we are still behind, overall. I admired the house, too.

I got e-mails from my sisters about how good the Ataulfo mangos are. They really are delicious. I had looked for them last year when I happened to find them on the WWW during a surfing session. I was overjoyed with my first box and I’ve conSOOMED many many since then.

While I worked on the kitchen, I listened to Tera talk about the new and improved BES that’s coming up. She’s lowered the price on it but it can’t get low enough for me to afford it. I have too many expenses hitting me all at once. She was saying that no one should feel they can’t do it because of money. I’m not gonna go to her and beg, either.

That’s put me behind tonight and it’s already 11 o’clock AGAIN. Better stop this and go to bed. Good night!

    Glad to hear you’re finally getting rain. If I lived remotely close to you, I’d split that jackfruit with ya. I’ve never tried one, but I want to!

    Who’s Tera and what’s BES?

    I’m going to call today and see if they know someone who would be willing to split it. I do want to try it but I’m not prepared to spend that much money.
