I went to bed the night before at 8am. I had woke in the night and read and woke again at 8am. I had a bm, then I read for a while. Angel nursed and ran around playing. I drank warm lemon water and fresh squeezed oj for breakfast and shared with Angel. Then I listened to Eckhart Tolle while I dry brushed, put on coconut oil, got dressed and made my bed. I made a banana/date smoothie and avocado applesauce for lunch and dinner.
I nursed Angel again and then used Savana’s car to drive to the greenhouse. We snacked on dates on the way there. At the greenhouse I dug out a trench to make a garden bed. The ground was really hard and I dug out sections. I would dig until my arms couldn’t move anymore. Then I would pull the loose dirt out of the trench. I was very proud when I finally got a big rectangle dug out. Angel helped me fill the bed with soil. Then I planted tomato starts, rosemary and seeds for radishes, spinach and herbs. I was very proud of my hard work.
I wanted to do more but it was almost time to drive to George’s. I nursed Angel and she fell asleep. I put her in her car seat and drove home and grabbed my food. I drove to the shop where my truck was being repaired to get some things out of it. The owner Doug was about to close up the shop and sent me to the back to get into my truck while he helped another customer. I went back there but the truck was up on the rack. I went back and told Doug. He said he would help me in a minute. He finished helping the other customer. At first I started to get irritated, thinking “I have to get to work”! I caught myself right away and enjoyed listening to the conversation between Doug and the other customer. Come to find out, it was a conversation that I enjoyed hearing. The other customer didn’t have the full amount of his repair bill. Doug happily did a hand shake agreement with the customer that the customer would pay a hundred a month until his bill was paid off and he was able to take his truck with him. I felt very comforted knowing that if I ever needed to then I could make payments on my truck repairs. I enjoy paying things up front in full but options are nice. I was so glad that I chose to enjoy the moment and listen to what was going on around me instead of fretting about time and getting to work.
When Doug finished with the other customer he couldn’t lower the lift because of what was in the process being done under the truck so he got a ladder and was going to get what I wanted out of the truck. I asked if I could go up in the ladder because there was a lot I needed to get. I assured him that I wouldn’t get hurt. I climbed up and had to do some acrobatic moves to get the truck door open and transfer from the ladder to the truck. I had full confidence in what I was doing and did not feel fear in anyway. I gracefully moved into the truck and gracefully made it back down. Doug complemented my acrobatics and I liked that. I bought a quart of oil to put in Savana’s car but I couldn’t get the cap open, Doug helped me that which was nice since it was out in the pouring rain. I thanked him very much and then headed to George’s.
On the drive I listened to Eckhart Tolle, drank my smoothie and enjoyed the warmth from the heater. I was toasty warm and loved it. I arrived at George’s right on time. Angel woke up and we went inside. I talked with George’s girlfriend Peggy for a few minutes while Angel nursed. She asked if I could clean out their fridge. I happily did that while Angel played with George. I got the fridge looking shiny and beautiful and was proud of my work. Then I cleaned the kitchen. I sat down and ate avocado applesauce with tomatoes for dinner. Then I nursed Angel again and wrote my blog. I had another bm. Then I watched TV with George for a while. I took out the trash right before it was time to leave.
After leaving George’s I went to the grocery store and bought fresh squeezed oj and other needed produce. I had a great conversation with the check out clerk when he asked me about reading people. Then I drove home. On the drive I listened to a movie on Netflix. It was a great movie called “Christmas Angel in our Home”. Very cute and all about success.
When I arrived home, Savana and Tyler helped me unload the car. I put the groceries away and took a shower with Angel. We are in bed and she is nursing.
