Since New Years day was on a weekend, today is the holiday (I hope). It’s good to start the first working day of the year with a holiday day off.
At least I hope it’s a day off, hope I’m not playing hookie on a workday!
i’ve been we working my way through a bag of Café Oro. Coffee from Honduras.
It has good flavor, but it is very dark and oily. Good flavor, but it looks very very strong when you pour it. I don’t regret buying it at all, but I worry about staining Mt teeth worse than they are already stained.
There’s only a couple more working days for me this year, today and tomorrow. I feel quite neutral about this year’s holiday season.
Yesterday I was quite stressed about the flat tire, having the tiling job going on and and payday so far away. We normally get paid at the end of the month, but in December we get paid early. Therefore there’s about 7 weeks between the December pay day in the January pay day. I seem to be the victim of some self inflicted bad timing. I got 2 new front tires yesterday and feel much better now. Relieved.
Below is a selfie of me at work. I took it to send to someone who was working from home.
My plan for today is to just go with the flow. I’m just gonna kind of hang out and see what happens.
Last night, around 3, there was a loud dogfight not too far from here. My two dogs, as well as the other million bajillion in the neighborhood, all went nuts. The dogfight lasted maybe 15 seconds max, but but the bajillion neighborhood dogs kept barking incessantly.
It seems like there is a lot more dogs in our neighborhood than I knew about or imagined. And who is just gonna let their dogs sit out in the yard and bark all night? Mine went in the kennel because they wouldn’t shut up, then they shut up.
It was a nice long weekend, I went out for Friday breakfast and beach, Saturday was an 800 m sea swim. I came in 4th out of 5 in my age category, I should have done a lot better. I was and still am extremely extremely disappointed. I need more training. I need to be able to double my breath rate.
Yesterday morning I went diving, and in the afternoon was the 1st night of Hanukkah.
When I write it here, it seems like a short weekend, but it was a good long weekend. I also mowed the yard and did a ton of laundry.
Today I start using up my vacation time. I could say wasting it. Starting today I’m taking Fridays off, Except today will be a 1/2 day, because I have 18.5 days to use. I will take every Friday for the rest of October off off and starting in November I will take Mondays and Fridays off. I’m taking off 3 days between Christmas and New Year’s. That will be the end of my leave for 2021.
2020 it was bad, 2021 has been much worse.
But the weather is looking good this morning and I hope it will be a nice day and weekend.
You are truly blessed to have such a holiday. Here, outside of the US, it’s not National Taco Day, (that would make it international taco day) but my heart will be with you as you celebrate your wonderful culture! Nothing is more American than the taco!
It’s a good Friday, had a nice Yom Kippur yesterday with an easy fast. I was only “lunchtime hungry” by the end, but I was thirsty thirsty thirsty! I think it was the first time since before my Bar Mitzva that I went to all the services.
Today is laundry, clean and catch-up day. (I’m using vacation days, as I need to be rid of them before the end of the year.)
It was a nice weekend, right up until today. Friday I went to dinner with my Friday night dinner club. Saturday I finished painting the roof (except I’m going to put another coat on.) And made it to the Annual Mango Fest in George Town.
I really wanted a Mango smoothie but for some reason they were gone, already finished. But I did have some good juices and bought a piece of art. Two Cayman Parrots.
I really like it.
Sunday, I finally made it to Ragazzi Pizza on the beach at Luca. It was my 4th time, but they had been closing early. Basically the advert was wrong. It was really good pizza and locale. I will be going back with friends.
After Luca, went to this little beach right in the middle of town. It has been calling me for weeks. So I went and found lots of sea glass. And I tried to take a video but instead got a series of pictures. Not sure what I did wrong, but the result was interesting.
Today is cloudy and rainy, Tropical Storm Elsa is to our north. We had heavy lighting and rain last night and this morning. Today, (bank holiday) looks lIke it’s going to be a write-off, which is OK in my book. Tomorrow will be sunny again, I hope.
