Sidetracked

I sat down with my coffee this morning to post.. Then I started reading emails. Then, because of the angle of the sun I could see dust where no dust was seen before. So I dusted. Then I remembered I made myself an overnight oats, So I ate the overnight oats while I read article about color e-readers.

Now it’s almost time to walk out the door to go to work and I haven’t posted yet, so this is it.

Last night for supper I actually made chicken tikka masala, which came out quite well. I will try it again soon.

Have a good day!

Micro Pictures

Or, pictures of small things.

It was a good weekend. It went out to your dinner Friday and it was a very poor service but good company. Saturday was a beach day, and I went to the flowers one mile sea swim Saturday afternoon and watch the finish and saw a lot of friends there.

Yesterday I went diving and took the pictures above. A fish in the last picture is the biggest thing in the pictures, About an inch long. The 1st few pictures are of a sea slug type creature that you could easily fit 25 of them on your little finger fingernail. They were so small I used a magnifying glass to finally see then before I could take the picture. I couldn’t even see them on my camera viewfinder while I was shooting the pictures. They have been cropped extensively. The little shrimp on the anemone was much bigger, you could probably fit 10 or 15 on your little fingernail.

Yesterday evening I went to the pizza on the beach event again, And again it was over when I got there even though I got there 2 hours before the end of the “event”. The whole restaurant (Luca) started closing at 6 due to slowness of business.

And now it’s a back to work Monday hurray.

Have a fantastic week!

Anxious Friday

I didn’t sleep well last night. I kept thinking about something, I don’t know what. This morning I feel, I don’t know, nervous. I just want to get this day over with.

There’s nothing wrong, No reason for me to feel this way, It’s all in my head.

Last night, Movie night was kind of disappointing. The prices were much higher, and My hamburger was much smaller. The waiters and waitresses were telling everyone to complain about the prices. The place was much lower capacity than usual. The reason is, That because of covid the hotel was closed, just the pool restaurant and beach bar was open. Now, With the opening of the hotel, I guess the management is greedy for some rapid cash. The Weston has a bad reputation for discarding the locals, They were nice when they needed us, but once they get some overseas visitors, they’ll turn their backs on the ones who kept them afloat. We’ll see, hope I’m wrong.

I don’t want to be negative, on this fine Friday morning, so I’ll bid you adieu and say “HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!

The Abandoned Kayak

abandoned

This kayak has been sitting here at my secret lunchtime beach for an easy six months. Probably much longer. it used to be used by the submarine company Atlantis Submarines to paddle out to their submarines. The submarines are a long gone, I think they’ve been sold. But the kayak remains. (Technically speaking I think one was a submarine and the other was a glass bottom boat, but I think they’re both gone) I have 2 kayaks which I have not used in a long time, This kayak is like the 1st kayak I ever bought, a Malibu 2. Therefore its value is sentimental only, but it must be a very old kayak that deserves to be cared for and loved.

I’m not even sure this place is still here.

Tonight at movie night is “Die Hard“. I’ve been told the food prices have gone up because technically now the hotel is open, but I’m going anyway.

Tomorrow is Friday, hip hip hooray! Have a good day. (That rhymes)

Discovery

I think, that taking pictures is directly related to the ability to come up with the topic to post about on my blog.

Yesterday was this day a plain day, not too much happened, Nothing worth posting about. Pictures make the post.

This is my discovery for the day. Perhaps rediscovery is a better term. It’s because like I’ve always said, the picture makes the post!

Have a fantastic day!

Cleanup Progress

It’s Tuesday now, thankfully. I ran out of paint yesterday and went to get more, but all the stores were closed because of the Queen’s birthday. So instead I cleaned the second half of the pantry downstairs. I removed the chest type freezer, and all the shelves and cleaned the floor underneath. It came out good. The house is getting pretty clean.

I have been cleaning common areas and areas that I didn’t pay much attention to, areas that I considered the wife’s domain, but my areas are still pretty messy. Is my desk and my workroom especially. Today, (along with paint,) I’m buying more storage boxes. And I’m throwing a lot of stuff away.

Sunday night I went to a pizza party on the beach that happens every Sunday. I got there when they were closing but it is something worth checking out in the future. Something to add to my weekly ‘movie night on the beach’ routine.

I’ve been using voice-to-text more and more often. It seems to work pretty well.

Have a good day!

Happy Birthday Queen!

Today is the Queen’s birthday holiday. Her 1st birthday without her husband.

It’s always nice to have a long weekend.

It’s been another good, productive, weekend. Saturday I trimmed the bushes and mowed the yard. It came out well. The yard and bushes look good. Yesterday I started repainting the roof. I got this rubberized roof paint that seems pretty good . I will finish that job today I sure hope, unless I run out of paint.

The weather here has been weird this weekend. Weather report says overcast, but while it’s not really cloudy, (you can see the sun and airplanes and stuff) the sky is white and not blue.

And now for a couple of amusing pictures from yesterday:

Excuse me for waking you up, but would you mind getting up from your nap, getting out of bed, getting dressed and taking us for our walk? We know it’s three hours early but pleeeeese?
Look at those dawgs, getting walked early AGAIN! But will we get our food early? Noooooo! Let’s kill them all!

Have a nice week!

Second Warning

More than a year ago, my mother sent me an article from the newspaper about Chrome and it was time to get rid of it. Now, it’s come up again, in an article I just read. So, I installed Firefox.

II haven’t uninstalled Chrome yet, but I will if Firefox seems OK.

I am glad it’s Friday. It’s been a rainy week and it looks like more of the same for the weekend, but I’m looking forward to it.

Have a good weekend!

No Movie Nite Tonight

Tonight the Westin movie is some musical. None of us are going.

I stayed up late (for me) cleaning the floor. It looks good, but it’s not shiny, like soap film on the floor. Maybe I’ll give it a swab with some plain water tonight..

Below are pics from yesterday, “front yard color”

I had a super good day yesterday. My brain seemed to work at peak efficiency and I worked extra hard and got a lot done, including finishing a major task done. I was complimented on the sound of my fast typing. I said “All ya gotta do is spell every word wrong, then go back and fix it, and and it sounds like you’re typing twice as fast.” They said they didn’t think so, which is true, I was kickin’ ass. I also did laundry, went grocery shopping and cleaned the floor.

Have a good Thursday, day before Friday!.
