Finally Friday

I’m glad it’s Friday.
Monday I start a school for work. I’ll be in Miami all next week.
Hurricane season hasn’t even started and there’s a storm out there. Tropical Storm Ana.

Yesterday it was nice and sunny. Today should be the same. I’m riding the scooter to work for the first time in over a week.

I ordered an espresso tool from eBay. It is like one my Mother-In-Law has.  I love it. I am excited.

It has a scooper on one end and a tamper on the other. Greatest thing since sliced bread!

Have a FANTASTIC weekend!

Goodweekend

It’s Monday after a good weekend.
I went to the beach and laid on my sundeck. The only productive thing I did all weekend was plant some bougainvilleas. Thank you spell checker.
Work should be busy this week. I’m going to try to not get emotionally involved.
That’s it! Have a good week.

It was a good hike, we were both tired when we got home. Sunday I did some painting and fixed our ice machine.

Have a good week!

Friday

Yeay! It’s Friday! Been a long weird week.
Monday didn’t seem like Monday because it seemed like last weekend was a day short.
Tuesday seemed like Monday
Wednesday and Thursday were timeless non-specific voids of white noise in a black hole.
And now it’s FRI-DAY-HAY-HAY! Yeay!

Wednesday and Thursday this week, (without sound)

Tomorrow The Wife and I are going to hike the Mastic Trail. No  plans for Sunday yet.

Have a good day and weekend!

Can’t Get Going Monday

Got up, showered and dressed, sitting zombie-like in the sofa ever since.
We went and saw Sponge Bob 3D last night and I have a popcorn hangover. I probably ate at least 6 cubic inches of popcorn.

It was a good movie though. Especially the 3D effects.

Have  a good week, talk to you tomorrow!

My Very Eager Monkey Just Stole Ugly Neighbors Peanuts

I made that up, years ago so I could remember the order of the planets in our solar system.

The reason I was thinking about this is because this morning I was thinking about a photo I saw of Earth and the Moon, taken from Mars, and that I’d like to see one of Jupiter from Mars.

Right now I’m sitting outside, drinking coffee, looking at the Moon and Jupiter, side by side.

On Monday, this week looked insurmountable, now it looks like we might make it to the weekend.
Our houseguest leaves today.

First 2015 Weekend

It was a good weekend, they’re always good.

We have a visitor here from Minnesota. It’s super cold up there. She’s been sick. Yesterday was her first day at the beach.  I didn’t go, I was home, clearing the branches off trees that hang over into our yard. I cut a lot of wood! It made a huge difference in the back half of the back yard, it’s much brighter. Maybe some grass will grow there now.

Kinda not looking forward to work today, first full week of the year, first week in a few weeks. Hope it doesn’t seem too long, or too painful. The wife has the day off, she’s going to Rum Point with Martina, our guest.

I’m sitting here on the back porch, under an orange light bulb, watching the full moon go down behind the trees. It’s just starting to get light. Faint glow. Did you ever notice that in the winter the moon follows the path of the summer sun in the sky? And in summer the moon follows the path of the  winter sun? That’s why it’s winter here and summer in New Zealand.

I feel like I could go on for a long time, but that’ll do for today! Have a good week!

Busy, Productive Weekend

It was a good weekend.
Saturday morning I went to the beach. Then at noon I went to town and rented a big jackhammer. Then Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning I dug 3 big holes in the yard and planted 3 trees, an avocado, a breadfruit tree, and a Desert Rose. TheĀ  desert rose is more likeĀ  a bush than a tree. Then that evening was the Wife’s works Christmas party, we played Miniature golf and then went and had a dinner. 17 years on the island, and that was the first time I had ever been to the mini golf course. It was fun!
Yesterday afternoon I went to the cigar bar with a friend and smoked two big fat cigars and watched American Football. For once I was not disappointed in the football.
One thing that didn’t get done this weekend was that I need to re-caulk the bathtub, and I meant to clean my “desk” and fold and put away the clothes I have piled up on top of Sheba’s kennel. That’s one thing I didn’t get done.

Well, the whole weekend fits into a couple of short paragraphs.

Happy Monday! This is the start of the big week!
