I woke at 2:30am. I read and then listened to the night sounds. I was having a great time lying with my eyes closed and listening. Next thing I knew it was 5:30am and time to get up. I dry brushed, put on coconut oil, oil pulled, woke up Savana and dressed her. Then I made my bed and went into the house. John was already awake. He played with Angel while I made a banana, dragon fruit, cacao and coconut water smoothie.
We said goodbye to John who headed back to Corpus Christi today, then I drove Savana’s car to the greenhouse and loaded it for the farmers market. On the way to the farmers market I called on a pickup for sale that I saw online. It sounds like it is exactly what I want at a price I can pay.
I offered him $1,000 and he said $1,100. Excellent, I will go look at it tomorrow after church. It is exactly what I’ve been wanting, especially with it being a 5 speed. I love driving stick shift. I am so glad I followed my intuition the other day with that car at the dealership. It wasn’t what I really wanted. Even though it was new and fancy, I don’t care about those things. I like paying cash and not having car payments. Speaking of cash, I realized that I couldn’t get cash out of my bank account to pay for the truck. My debit card was canceled when I noticed fraudulent charges on it. I am getting a new card sent to me but it will take 2 weeks. My bank is in Idaho so I can just go there. I called George’s girlfriend Peggy and asked if I could write her a check for cash and she agreed.
The rest of the drive to the farmers market I listened to Abraham Hicks. The market was slow today. I drank my smoothie and ate some banana chips and kale chips. Angel nursed 3 times and ate a bunch of banana chips. Peggy came by and got the check, then she came back later and brought cash. My friends Rebecca and Cory came by and hung out with me the last hour of the market. I practiced handstands and had fun conversations.
When the market was over, Rebecca and Cory helped me pack up and we met across the street at the grocery store. I got a case of zucchini, kale and juicing oranges along with some other yummy fruits and veggies. When I paid I wrote a check since I don’t have a debit card yet. My check was denied. They sent me to customer service. At customer service my check was still denied. I was getting really frustrated because I didn’t want to use my cash to pay because that was for the pickup. I knew I had more than enough money to cover the check. I was getting hungry and just wanted to pay for my food. Angel was also getting hungry and restless. They sent me to the phone to call a number. I couldn’t get the phone to work and finally someone helped me. On the phone the recording told me that my check was denied for an unknown reason and to find another form of payment. I was about to start throwing fruit and I was not accepting what is. Rebecca came around the corner and paid for my purchases. Yay Rebecca! I then wrote her a check. Now I was starting to calm down and reminded myself to breath deeply. Deep breaths…deep breaths.
We had lunch with Rebecca and Cory. I had dates and bananas. Angel had dates and nursed. She got really sticky and dirty. I had fun talking with my friends and being goofy while Angel ran around.
We said goodbye and headed to George’s. Angel instantly fell asleep in the car. At George’s I did the dishes, cleaned the kitchen, folded laundry, took out trash and swept the front porch. Angel woke up and nursed. Then she ate fruit roll ups with George. I ate some kale and zucchini chips and had 16oz. fresh squeezed oj. Then I relaxed and watched TV with George and wrote most of my blog.
On the drive home from George’s I talked to my mom. When I arrived in town, I unloaded at the greenhouse and came home. The Airbnb guest called and his gps was having trouble with my address so he wanted me to meet him downtown in 50 minutes. I was tired but I figured I would still be up at that time. At home, the teenagers and Alice helped me unload the groceries and put them away. My friend Phil was here staying for a few days. We talked while Angel ate wet oats with banana. I sliced bananas and put them on trays for banana chips.
I put Angel in the bath and Phil went to bed. I was just getting Angel out of the tub when the Airbnb guest called and said he thought he was just down the road from me. I talked him to the house and showed him around. He left to get dinner.
I took a cold shower and went to bed with Angel. She is nursing and might possibly fall asleep.
Thank you for reading my blog. Good night 😴
