The katydids are out in force tonight.

Seems the few from last night have been joined by some friends. When I went to put some food in the other fridge, I found a cicada shell, too. Wildlife abounds!

I was up in time to do most, if not all, of my exercises this morning but I didn’t get past the BodyFlex routine. I was constantly being sidetracked. I didn’t even get my Quiet Time in until tonight.

100% Raw Food

30 ozzies banana/romaine smoothie

24 ozzies banana/romaine/green curly leaf/red leaf lettuce smoothie
10 baby bananas

3 Campari tomatoes
6 nectarines (I’d taken them to work to eat but didn’t get around to them)
2.5 quarts salad (iceberg, organic cucumber, organic Vidalia onion, tomato, okra, dressed with cashew dressing)

The greens besides the iceberg were organic, too.

I took my shoes with me today and I have no idea why. I have one registrar out on vacation until Thursday and there wasn’t enough time to put my shoes on, let alone walk. It would have been a nice day for it because the sky was overcast making the air cooler.

One of the staff had been to Sam’s and got me some Campari tomatoes. I’d saved a carton that they usually come in when I buy them at the supermarket and there was no way I could fit all of them into it plus the ones she brought me cost less. My kind of deal!

My phone rang and it was one of the ladies from church wanting to know if I have a piece of music she was looking for. I asked about her mother who hasn’t been well and was told she passed away yesterday. I told her how sorry I was and she said, “She’s resting. The last week was so hard for her, it was a relief to see her go.” I told her I knew exactly what she meant. I had prayed the Lord would take my mother because she was miserable. There was no quality of life. She didn’t want to live. Death is part of life on Planet Earth and we have the Blessed Hope. Titus 2:11-13

When I got off work, I went to the supermarket and got some bananas then headed across the mountain to get some oranges. I went by Mother’s grave and it’s looking shaggy.

The only place I went was Mother’s favorite produce market. I got the oranges, some homegrown tomatoes, and a few pods of okra. From there, I headed home.

It took me a few minutes to unload and get things put away. I grabbed some greens out of the fridge and came to the house. The hour was growing late but I ate what I could, anyway. I would have loved to have had some watermelon but it would have taken more time than I had to fix it. I left it for tomorrow.

I’ve eaten, washed greens for later, fed Twinkle, and started the distiller. I’m so sleepy I’m about cross-eyed.

My sister is doing better as is my BIL. He got the tubes out today that had been in place to drain fluid from the surgery site. He was dreading that but it turned out it wasn’t as painful as he had expected. This time, he will probably go to a skilled nursing facility for rehab before he goes home. I know he won’t be overjoyed but it will be better for him in the long run.

I know this isn’t exciting or particularly inspiring but most of my posts aren’t, anyway. Good night!

    Honestly, Tommie, I think that what’s so neat about you blogging about all the details is that you’re so “normal.” Many raw food bloggers are uber-crunchy (like me) or are doing “unusual” things like riding through Thailand on a bike or living in a commune. O.k., maybe it’s an exaggeration. But you are a person that could be our neighbor or our mom, with a “regular job” and a simple life. And, you are RAW. Somehow, that has a big impact I think.

    Thanks, Marjorie. I guess you can call my humdrum existence “normal”. Maybe ordinary would be a better word. However, the fact that I eat NO COOKED fruits and veggies makes me weird in this society as a whole. On the teleconference I wish I could share with everyone, Dr. D. says something like it isn’t unusual for people to eat vegetarian or vegan or even a large percentage of raw fruits and veggies. However, it is viewed with alarm and suspicion (I’m definitely paraphrasing here) for a person to eat ONLY raw fruits and veggies and nothing cooked. I see it quite often in my contacts with friends and acquaintances that know I only eat raw. It’s like they think I have a screw loose. I’ll admit I come on a little strong but people are doing themselves such harm with the science projects they call food and medicating themselves many times a day. I’d like to grab them, shake them, and yell, “WAKE UP!” but it took me a long time, too, so I try to keep myself under control.
