Cheer Up!

Well, we got that Monday out of the way. Now it’s Tuesday. I went to the eye doctor yesterday, my glaucoma is getting worse, although the pressures are lower, 14 and 18. So I got more drops. It can get worse, but under no circumstances can it get better. Nothing I can do about it. But I’m kind of crabby today.

Here’s a picture of me standing on my head this morning to cheer you up. From my security camera.

Have a great day!

Upside Down

Yesterday was my first of two classes about “How To Stand On Your Head” I did it! First time ever! I had a wall behind me, but hopefully next week I can get rid of the wall. I practiced this morning too.

i didn’t really think it thru, the instructor finally got me up and said “congratulations on your first headstand.” I said, in Beavis and Butt-Head style Hehe everything is upside down” Everyone laughed and I really enjoyed the class.

Overall, it was a good weekend. Mowed the yard. Glued the pot the cat knocked over. It needs more work, and it’s never going to be the same. But maybe it will be good for something.(artificial plants?)

The Bad Side

And the jungel-ish yard got mowed by me..

We have Sahara dust wrecking the weather and the sky is a grey-white of lugubriousness.

But its going to be a great week! I’m sure yours will be great too!

Mission Failed

All i planned on doing this weekend was cleaning the house. I failed gloriously. Saturday I went to breakfast with friends, then lunch with a different group of friends, then saw the Batabanu Carnival Parade.

Sunday I went diving then went to a yoga class, and then mowed the yard . Below are some underwater pictures from yesterday.

And now it’s back to work on a Monday and I don’t mind going.

Have a great week like I’m going to have!

Yoga Class

Last night I did a yoga class. I quite enjoyed it. It was a Yin class. Yin means:

It was very nice for kind of my first class ever. The instructor helped and everyone else didn’t seem light-years ahead of me advanced. I liked it much much more than I expected to.

I’m going back!

Happy Friday!

Two Bad Samsung Watches

I got a Samsung watch for my birthday in 2019, I really liked it. The display started flickering about May of this year. I went and bought another one, the Samsung Galaxy watch 2. The display on this one flickered after the warranty expired and a day.

I’m taking them to the cell phone repair place, I’m going to ask if they can be repaired. In the meantime I’ve got my old Garmin Vivosport back on.

I really did like the Samsung watch and the watch 2.

It was a good weekend, a lot of diving. Have a great week!

Another Day Off Friday!

It’s another day off Friday for me! I don’t have any plans except to drink this cuppa coffee. Maybe beach today.

I’ve been swimming the half mile almost every day at lunch time. Once this week, I finished my swim and got out of the water and saw a girl swimming pretty close behind me. She swam on by as I got out and walked to the shower. While I was rinsing off I saw her walking down the beach towards the start of the half mile. She had her goggles and I knew she was a fellow swimmer practicing for the races.

She was about 25 meters ahead of me, walking down the beach. She started to walk past the beginning of the half mile and I thought “Dang, she must have swam the mile instead of the half mile.” As soon as I had the thought, she she got back in the water and began swimming the half mile again. At least twice.

I want to try that now, swim the half mile, walk back to the beginning, and swim it again.

Maybe today.

Have a great day and a wonderful weekend.

Decrease Your Walking Time

I believe I’ve discovered a way to decrease the time I spend walking in the mornings. Without decreasing the distance walked. I’ll show you: go on, get up and walk. Now walk faster, faster still, a little bit faster, faster! That’s pretty good!

I believe the term that I should use for this faster walking will be “running”.

I shall get it to patented and copyrighted and I shall be rich for my invention!

Seriously though, it’s Wednesday, I slept good last night, I feel good now, I’m ready to go to work. I plan on swimming in half mile at lunch time like I did yesterday.

Have a wonderful day!

5K Walk For Recovery

A

It was a nice weekend. Friday was “Eat Poorly” day. I had dinner at Burger King and paid for it later. I felt bad all night and most of the day Saturday.

Saturday morning I went scuba diving with some friends and still have the pictures to be sorted. That’s why there’s no underwater pictures here today. Sunday was a 5K walk/run. It was related to this month being recovery month in the Cayman Islands. Afterwards a group of us went out for coffee.

Sunday afternoon I was invited to a small party at Smiths Cove and I went to that and it was quite nice.

It was a good weekend, it seemed like a long weekend, and it was a good break before going back to work today.

Have a great week!

Views I Saw

Here’s a couple of pictures, one I took yesterday at my beach lunch and the other from this mornings dawg walk.

“Loneliness.”

There used to be rock going across what looks like a channel in the pic above. It’s on this blog somewhere but I can’t find it now. I took this pic while I was sitting in the shade, reading my book.

I love this view.

Above is where I walk the dogs every day. The view isn’t special when I walking in that direction, but I always try to look back when I’m on the way back home, it seems much better then. I don’t know why.

16 Tuesdays ago, my wife left.

Have a good day!

Finished My Workout App

I finished another workout app. The 1st one I don’t remember the name of. I could probably find it if I wanted to look but, nah

The 30 day programs seem to have three 30 day programs in them

Six Pack Abs in 30 Days

Above is the one I finished yesterday. I finished the 3rd month/program yesterday. Today I had no choice but to repeat. I don’t have a six pack. Mostly the exercises were too easy with one hard one thrown in. The last week’s exercises were pretty good though.

So what’s next? I was thinking about a beginner yoga app, (I took one yoga class once and hated it) or flexibility app. I’ve never touched my toes in my life without bending my knees.

Suggestions welcome!

Have a good day!
