Woke up this morning, and in the dark, I dropped my phone. It shattered the screen. Bad. Trash can bad. So I had to go to work and get that new phone I was so unhappy with. The Ulefone. It’s my phone now.
Contractors are coming to start the tile job. Ther were supposedly off between Xmas and New Years, but apparently not.Thwarting all my vacation beach and diving opportunities.
Anyway, just a quick post becaause it’s Monday, and I post on Mondays.
It’s Monday again, and since I posted all my underwater pictures and weekend report yesterday, I have nothing for today.
Yesterday, I cleaned my workshop area a little, just the workbench and the junk on the floor, and stowed my generator for the non-hurricane season which starts in a couple weeks. I went to an evening barbecue yesterday, in the evening. Good chicken and ribs and potatoe salad.
Below is a picture of Lee Lee thee cat sleeping in a potted plant. It’s unusual because the wind was blowing quite strongly but I guess the shelter and comfort was sufficient.
This morning is still quite cloudy and quite windy but but the weather should improve soon. Hopefully I can swim my half mile at lunch, rain or shine.
I had a really cool topic for today, one that I could never forget. I forgot it.
I went diving Saturday and Sunday last weekend and it was very nice.
Yesterday at work, I put in vacation requests for my 18.5 days that I have to use by the end of the year. Is pretty much, I’m taking every Friday off and almost every Monday off until 2022. I had to submit a separate leave request for each day.
I was going to post a picture of the cat, but the cat moved. I’ve been trying to get a specific shot for 2 days and both times she follows me when I go to get the camera.
I’ve been trying to improve my sleep. My sleep monitoring app says I’m sleeping pretty good but I don’t feel like I am. I think I’m fooling it by laying still and relaxing even though I’m awake.
I am experimenting with the bed, changing blankets and and etcetera. A few months ago I got new pillows and slept really well for a few days after that. I was excited to go to bed to test the new pillow. Nowadays I can’t tell if I’m too cold or too hot and I’m switching blankets this week. It seems like I always wake up at regular intervals, and the regular intervals stay the same. It’s weird that I can’t tell if I’m sleeping well or not.
I don’t mean ants that fight each other like jousting or duelling, I mean I’m having a battle with ants in my house. I think I won the battle of the bathroom and now I’m attacking a regiment in the kitchen. I am attempting to secure the perimeter and cut off supply lines to the multiple armies with which I battle.
That means I sprayed all around the house with this ant killer spray. Wherever concrete meets diry
What’s I found an ants nest in a picture frame.
It’s an ongoing battle.
Outside in your flower pots if a plant suddenly starts to die odds are there’s an ant colony inside eating the roots
It seems to be a Caribbean wide problem, everybody I know has the same thing.
It’s Wednesday. I have nothing to post. So here’s a bunch of funny pictures.
Yesterday, my weather apps unanimously called for no rain, it poured and flooded town and I got soaked on my scooter. It didn’t rain a drop here. I’ll be watering the plants before going to work today.
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.
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.
