An offer of a kidney isn’t something I get every day.

I don’t get many comments on my blog. Maybe it isn’t interesting enough. Maybe I don’t leave much room for other opinions. Anyway, I have a comment I think I’ll keep out there in Limbo. It says, “need a kidney?well i have an extra lets talk……..write me on myspace and we can negotiate.” Then there’s an e-mail address and a name with a phone number. Weird. No, I don’t need a kidney and if I did I wouldn’t buy one from a guy on MySpace. Sorry, fella.

Did anyone say anything about dreaming? I guess not but I’ll bring it up, anyway. I had some strange ones last night. To begin with, I was running a beauty shop (did I ever mention I used to be a hairdresser?) and the operators were the registrars at the hospital. It was hectic, which is par for the course. Then I was driving and was very sleepy. Now, I don’t usually drive with my eyes closed but I was aware that I was doing that very thing. I can see the scene in my mind right now. When I opened my eyes, there was white sand everywhere and I seemed to be at a construction site. There was a foundation I’d driven over and the tracks from the car were visible. A building was close by (I don’t know how I managed to park the car beside it without hitting it but it was, after all, a dream) so I went in and decided I would sleep there the rest of the night. I had my lounge that I use to sun in the summer and a pillow. By and by, a truck pulled up and towed a car away. Several men and a young boy were outside and I got the idea they were a gang of thieves stealing cars. Mine was right there and was the next on the list. The young boy was acting “cool” and that made me more than a little upset with his role models. I don’t know if they knew I was anywhere around. They were standing in a circle and I was part of it. I wasn’t at all nervous but I was relieved to wake up in my own bed.

I did more of my exercises today than I did yesterday but not as much as I usually do when I have time. My pushup lasted for 47 seconds. Most of my soreness is gone and I could do my kneeling routine with no problem. I do still have a little bit of tenderness in my hip and my neck has a “crick” in it but that could be from being on the computer a lot.

My Raw Food Food

20 ozzies grapefruit juice
33 ozzies banana/peach/spinach/agave smoothie
The last Bartlett pear
4 persimmons
3 satsumas
Kim chee
3 Bubbies pickles (a couple were very small)
4 tomatoes
Fairly large salad of red leaf lettuce, cucumber, Cipolline onion, tomato, dressed with EVOO (just a little), lime juice, agave nectar, sea salt, garlic granules, and onion granules
Kelp noodles with cashew sauce and fresh basil (delicious!)

I took pictures of my smoothie before and after and I’ll post them tomorrow if I end up not going anywhere. I haven’t heard from my DIL. I called this afternoon but there was no answer and no answering machine so I couldn’t leave a message.

Today has been more of not doing much. I took a bath and got dressed to go fuel the car. When I pulled up to the station, it was closed. I thought about going to town but I didn’t need anything other than gas and I can get that tomorrow if I have to. If I stay home, I won’t have to.

There’s no chance of a white Christmas in this part of the world. Last night, it would have been like daylight if there’d been “new-fallen snow” on the ground. The moon was out in all her glory. Why do we assign a gender to the moon? Just wondering.

Many years ago when I was just a child and my sister was in high school, we went to the barn that was close to where we lived to watch the cows. The legend is that they kneel at midnight on the night before Christmas. It was cold and I wasn’t generally up that late. We hid, wide-eyed (at least I was) and watched. I was disappointed when they just stood there, chewing their cuds. I can imagine that they wondered why on earth we were there. The things we remember on a night like this…

Think I’ll go to bed and see if Santa comes to see me in the night. Merry Christmas Eve, everyone!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you as well! I hope yours is as happy and fulfilling as mine has been:) Jaysen is popping the corn for the birds as we speak, so shortly here, we’re off to the woods to play!

    Best Wishes for You!

    Sounds like fun, Mattye! I know the birds appreciated the gift, too. Keep doing as well as you’ve been doing and you’ll hit that 100 mark before you know it!
