Morning Planets

Half our planets are lined up in a neat row this morning and every recent morning. I find it amazing because it lets me visualize the solar system. My life and all its problems aren’t important, being able to accurately visualizing the orbital plane of our solar system is what really matters in ones life!

It seems very hot this morning. I can’t tell if it’s really hot or it’s because I’m wearing a non-cotton shirt work gave me. I’m a cotton only kind of guy.

Taking a few days off, visitors down from the USA. Halfa day off today. Life is good!

hava gooday!

Planets In A Row

I saw this this morning.

This morning, I got up and went outside and saw the exact same thing as in the picture above.

it was very cool. Already, at 5 till 5 in the morning, the sky is starting to get pink.

Tomorrow and Monday are holidays here, so this is the start of a long long weekend.

I got a perfect score on my Duolingo this morning, to make up for yesterday.

Jamaica Apple Tree

I’m worried about my Jamaica Apple Tree, pictured above. It seems to be unhappy, lots of brown leaves and not many new ones Are there any botanical doctors out there in my zillions of readers?

Have a good weekend! I may or may not post tomorrow. Havva good-un!

wordless work week

Sundaysunset

Happy Monday to you all. Above is the sunset last night from the roof deck.

On the dawg walk this morning, Mars and Saturn were very close together. Maybe they’ll be closer tomorrow, but probably not . They’re making a triangle with Venus, very bright in the morning sky.

And it’s just another wordless work week after a weekend made up of mostly good parts.

Enjoy!

use it or lose it Friday

I’m off today. Another use it or lose it Friday. (vacation I have to use by the end of the year or lose it)

I saw the eclipse last night (early this morning). It was pretty cool the Earth’s shadow covered the full moon almost completely.

Today I’m going to the eye doctor, I supposedly have cataracts in one eye and glaucoma in the other. We shall see.

Is other than that I have a day of beach, reading, shopping planned.

Is tomorrow is a shore dive and Sunday is a boat dive.

And that’s my weekend plan.

Have a great weekend!

La Luna

I was out in Bodden Town last night and got these pictures of the full moon 🌙 soon after it rose. Quite a sight!

Finally, it is, again, FRIDAY! Yeay! I have no plans yet, but I’m ready to sleep late Saturday and Sunday. Late being 6 if I’m lucky.

Have a great weekend!

Cloudy Day Supermoon

Today is our first cloudy day in a long, long time. I was actually planning on driving the van instead of the scooter today. Just to see if it still runs.

I didn’t sleep well last night. It was a nice big moon and I was up, looking at it and walking around and thinking about stuff.

regular moon vs supermoon

The moon was huge when it came up last night, My mom said it was a supermoon. Later in the night, high in the sky, it didn’t look so big. (It wasn’t as cloudy last night)

Have a happy hump day!

Good News & Bad News

She’s gonna blow!

The bad news is that Betelgeuse is going to blow up. Possibly in our lifetime. This would be cool to see, but bad for Orion, the constellation.

The good news is that Betelgeuse is not going to explode anytime soon.

she’s not gonna blow.

Yeay for Orion!

Betelgeuse not Beetlejuice. Say it out loud.

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…

Have a good week!

Happy Summer!

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!

A New Day!

I am excited about today. The weather is supposed to be nice and sunny during my lunchtime!

It’s one hour before sunrise. I’m on the back porch. The Crux is near the horizon in front of me and Leo is overhead, with Cancer just in front of that. The sky is just beginning to turn light.

Apparently, it rained last night. I sat down in a big  puddle of water that was in my chair. Had to go change my pants. Funny huh? The chairpuddle was an inch deep AFTER I sopped it up with my butt.

I heard there’s a problem leaving comments here. I’ll be looking into it today.

Have a great day, I plan on it!

Have a good day.

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.

image

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)

image

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)
