Monday Morning Blues After A Fantastic Weekend

Here we are, Monday morning. Again. I got the Monday Morning Blues.

Friday we went to Royal Palms beach bar. The wife wanted to dance. There’s a link to Royal Palms in my menu bar

Saturday we went shopping and got new suitcases for our Canada trip in less than three weeks. Then we had lunch at a place called Icoa. I had a Maine Lobster sandwich that was very good, and the staff was super nice. Then we went to a pool party and had a beef curry dinner at a friends house.

Sunday I mowed the yard, and my lawnmower ran good for a while, then quit. I just had it fixed. I was able to get it running by putting some duct tape on the throttle. It’s going back to the shop today. After I mowed the yard, I took sun on the  porch while the Wife went on a catamaran cruise. She didn’t get home till late and was mad because the staff made the people leave their shoes on the dock, and when they got back, one of her flip flops was missing.

This morning I was doing my exercises and we had a sudden, heavy downpour. I got soaked getting the stuff inside and closing the doors and windows. Now I’m drinking coffee and getting ready to go back to work.

All I gotta focus on is making it to the beach for lunch.

Have a good week!

My BDay Gift To Myself

For my birthday last week, I bought myself a fountain pen. I think they’re cool and increasingly uncommon.

It sucks, my writing looks terrible using this pen.

I think I’ll give it to my wife….

I wasn’t ready for this week, after my vacation weekend. Yesterday was tough, today I don’t wanna go to work. Waaa Waaaa.

Personal New Year

Tomorrow is my birthday, 7-11.

image

I’ll be 55.

When I turned 40, seems like about 5 minutes ago, I thought, “My life  is approximately half over  (If I don’t screw up and get m’self kilt)”. This second half seems  to be moving a lot faster than the first.

I think that birthdays are good times to make new years resolutions, after all, it is the start of a personal new year, isn’t it?
My resolution is “no TV when the sun is above the horizon”. I gave up television totally before I got married, now, the Wife likes it, so I end up watching too, and getting addicted. I like Modern Family.

This weekend, we’re going to East End for a mini stay-cation. It’s gonna be GREAT!
We have a young woman staying over to take care of the dawgs.

You know you’re getting old when you call a pretty girl a “young woman”!

Have a good weekend!

Busy weekend coming up

The  Wife & I have  a busy weekend coming up. Manufacturers of her work products are visiting and she will be quite busy. When she’s busy, that means I’m busy. I’m sure I’ll have better stories to tell after the weekend!

Glad it’s Friday, but not sure how “weekendish” this weekend will be. Today is the last day of my Airport Operations training and it has been very interesting.

I have some friends visiting too and hope I can go diving with them.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Friday Again!

You’ll be happy to know that I got my lawnmower back yesterday, all safe and sound and clean and shiny and fixed

Story on the news today about stowaways on British Airways, one almost dead and one found on a rooftop, fell out when the wheels opened. It’s not official yet though.

Saw an overturned cement mixer yesterday on the way home from work. Took some phone photos.

That truck had to be going a bit fast to do that. There’s a driver looking for a job now probably..

Weather is still weird, I’m ready for sunny days again!

Have a good weekend!

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!
