So far, 1/30/07

Image
Well, I didn't get a chance to update this post and several others before leaving for Costa Rica, so I'm just putting it up now as-is. Maybe I'll be able to fix it later - probably not though 'cause it will be almost 2 months later when I get back home...

Sleep:
woke at 6am for temp.
up at 6:30am-ish, officially at 7am
to sleep for night at ??

Food:
~12:30pm: ~6 -8 'cooking' bananas (what I grabbed this morning, forgot to count) & a couple of hands of lady finger bananas (probably only about 10 I'd say 'cause some were past ripe).
~6:30pm: mamey sapotes - one small (pictured below) and one medium - then too sweet to deal with for me... will have salad later tonight when home I suspect

~ 10pm: 2 avocados, 3 med. tomatoes, group of celery

Brought left overs from what I brought to store (work) yesterday to store (work) today & added some more 'cooking' bananas and lady finger bananas, one more lemon and an avocado. Ate the bananas and 2 of the sapo…

Female:

The Rest:
It started as a regular-ish day. I wanted the truck, so dropped my hubby off at the store to work for the day, and went back home to shower, etc. I had planned to go out at 5:30 for the evening and pick him up afterwards after the store closed, but at about 2:30 he called with a dilemma. A band he does music videos, graphics and other things for had contacted him because they …

Sorry, forgot to take a picture of my salad 'cause I was at the store and all..

Exercise:
I was going to run again today, for longer with hubby this morning, but his work schedule got all turned around 'cause he remembered that he needed to film a concert tonight so had to switch shifts. I needed to patch in some of switched shift in the evening and to do so, had to go in in the early afternoon to be there... so many weird things happened today - electicity out at the same time as my cell phone was tweaking, then both resolved at the same time... so many changes of plans that I didn't get much done at all, except adjust…

6am temp: 96.81 degrees fahrenheit, day 14 of my cycle, red day, no kid icons

7:55-8:10am: wake son for work at store, check email to see if I'll be able to Intern at FoodnSport's Fasting Retreat in Costa Rica (they had a cancellation). Yay!!! I'm in the running, along with some others. We'll see later. :)

8:45am: got 'up', but stayed in bed w/hubby, talking and such... LOL he looked up Spanish videos on YouTube to help me brush up on my Spanish if I'm going to Costa Rica. We found a nifty one with a little girl and some fruit puzzle pieces. The guy filming it (prob. the father) was quizzing her and it was perfect to learn the fruitas that way. :)

10:30am: actually got up and showered, etc. Did computer work here and there. Put oranges, lemons, tangerines somebody brought to us this morning away (after taking pics, of course).

11:30am: Drank about 1/2 gallon young coconut water, made ~32 oz. tangelo juice for hubby, who drank it too.

Noon: started to cut up very…

Today I slept in a little bit, not as much as yesterday.

6am temperature: 96.62 degrees fahrenheit, had the little girl icon, so I guess if we wanted a girl baby this is the time to try for it. Now that our son's 18 and all, I'm not so sure I want to have more children. I'll consider it again once we are on acreage we can set roots in.

7:50-8am wake up calls to son to get up and work at our store...

9:30am got up to shower and go running or do yoga with my hubby. He got us some new Yoga DVDs recently and we're planning on alternating running with them in the mornings. We haven't quite gotten into it yet though. He's still healing the cuts and stuff from the reef and rocks when he rescued the drowning person so running shoes are not very appealing right now. I'm still healing my back too. So we did neither this morning - got a nifty 4-wheel wheel barrow cart thing that dumps it's load like a manual dumptruck and carted all the coconuts we salvaged from a fr…

I think I'm going to title these by the date like I used to do in my journals pre-Blogger days. I'll put 'So far today' on a post that hasn't been completed for that day and post to it the next day to complete it, taking the 'So far today' at the time. I still need to figure out how to get the archive pages fully formatted how I want. They're still useable, but not quite right.

Slept in (sort of) today.

Female: Took my basal temperature like usual at 6am - was 96.69 degrees fahrenheit for those of you who are curious. It's day 12 of my cycle, a 'red' day as my hubby and I call it. It's how the Baby-Comp tells me whether I might be fertile or not. Red is fertile. There aren't any little boy or little girl icons though, so guess it's not as fertile as others - forget how that goes. All I know and need to know at this point is that in order to not have more babies we keep the unprotected adult activities to the green days. The amber a…

archives yet to be fixed...

K, so I decided to have just the most recent post displayed and for Blogger to archive the rest by the month. They're there, but you have to scroll down on that page to see them for now. I have to mess with the code a bit more to get that to work properly.

Aloha!

re-start of daily (or near daily) logs...

Image
Okay, I admit it, I'm out of practice. I forgot to count stuff for y'all. I'll get better at it as it goes. I'm also trying to figure out how I'm going to go about it formatting-wise with this new Blogger thingy. It automatically time/date stamps stuff so I could enter what I eat when I eat and such - if I'm online at the time...

Here's my day so far today:

water from 3 large young coconuts in the morning: ~8:30am
~12 large (for this kind of banana) lady finger bananas for breakfast: ~9am
~4 or 5 lbs of rambutan: ~4pm

I was pretty sleepy today so worked on catching up on my sleep a bit. I've been going to sleep sort of late lately and yesterday was a bit stressful 'cause my hubby almost drowned when trying to rescue a person who was drowning.

The drowning person was wearing a life jacket thing but they had gotten swept out into a really rough area by the reefs where waves were churning in various directions and such. There were 2 other strong swimmers th…

Yay! I've got Blogger tamed... I think

K, so I just re-did the template in Blogger and have it working. I messed with the template so it'd look like the rest of my journals as much as possible on the regular Web. I haven't messed with the handheld and other CSS yet though - so who knows how well that will show up. It also seems to be posting the most recent at the top, instead of the way I was doing it before. I'll see if I can adjust that later. I might have to switch the old one's around so it makes more sense and matches it in that way. We'll see how it does with the archives and such. Only time will tell...

Doing it this way gets me listed with them & gives you the ability to comment and such without me having to code it in myself. Nice.

I adjusted the rest of the site to include these Blogs in the links now that it seems to be working & I'm going to start posting what I eat/do and such again soon!

I'm also going to start telling you about my cruise and other things that happened while …

lauhala shoe at the beach

Image
Here's a picture of the shoe I made from scrap lauhala (pandanus) the other day. It worked pretty well - needs a toe loop though 'cause the bottom's sort of floppy. Not enough time or good leaves to make another. Took a few pictures of it with a cell phone camera and left it to compost. :)
