Twas a good weekend. We have a quarantiner staying in the apartment. Saturday the wife and I did some shopping and final touches getting the place ready. Our quaranteeny arrived late Saturday afternoon. After 24 hours, he says the apartment is marvelous.
Later this month, quarantine here in Cayman is going down from 14 days to 10 days. I’ll be glad when it goes down to zero (if you’re immunized).
Sunday, wifey went to a “Plant Swap” and I went diving and also got some sun.
Maybe there’ll be some underwater videos here tomorrow.
And I get my monthly co-void test this morning. Another Q-Tip up the nose…
Happy first day of summer! The longest day in the north, Shortest day in the south. First day of winter in tge southern hemisphere.
It starts at 5:34 Cayman time today
I like it better the two days the sun passes directly overhead in Cayman. It only happens in the tropics.
I got up this morning, walked to the sea and swam a little, walked home and showered, dressed, etc etc etc. Now I’m ready to go to work. Well, not ready, but I’m still going. My back still hurts when I bend over. Fon’t know what’s up, never hurt for this long before.
Well, have a good day, a good week and a good SUMMER!
Happy First Day Of Summer (in the northern hemisphere) and Happy First Day Of Winter to everyone else!
At 11:39 local time this morning, 16:39 UTC, the sun will reach it’s northernmost point in relation to its orbit around the earth. Today is the longest day in the northern hemisphere and the shortest day of the year to everyone else.
To me it’s kind of a sad day because, well, ya know, the days are getting shorter. In reality though, it’s the first day of summer and the hottest part of the year is coming!
Speaking of the hottest time of year, yesterday we got a new hot tub. But I don’t think we’re goingo turn the heat on (yet)
Maybe when we get into the cold dark winter.
Have a good Sunday and a GREAT SUMMER! (in the northern hemisphere. Have a great winter everyone else)
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!
This week has flown by. I can’t believe it’s Thursday already.
I got my scooter back yesterday. It seems to be running OK now. Call me paranoid, but now it seems the brakes are worse. I’m not taking it back.
In the news, at the end of this year, we should see a comet in our skies. AND, if it survives it’s trip around the sun, we should be able to see it in the DAYTIME! I remember that comet in 1997, Hale Bopp it was cool.
I remember looking at it, and it was weird, because it felt like looking at something that you couldn’t quite focus on properly. I didn’t have my binoculars then. I got ’em now! I hope we get to see it!
Today should be a good day at work. I’m looking forward to the weekend. Let’s go lets go lets GO!
