Friends Faux Family Farewell

My visitors leave today, I am quite sad about it. It was a very short trip.

Yesterday was so rainy, we could barely make it outside. But we had a two meal day consisting of a late big breakfast and and a late big lunch.

The highlight of the trip, I suppose, was Jessika taking the intro to scuba class at Don Fosters.

I am so sad to see them go. My life is forever enriched, seeing Jessika again. She was born (with her twin sister, Veronika) on the day I got out of the Navy. I wish they were my daughters.

Tomorrow it’s back to work for me. This morning my weigh in was 163.8, pounds an alarming new record low weight.

Have a great week!

International Women’s Day

Happy International Women’s Day! International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women, global holiday, celebrated annually on March 8 to commemorate the cultural, political, and socioeconomic achievements of women. (Wikipedia)

My mother and sister fly out today. It’s been a good visit. I’m taking them to the airport this morning and then going to work.

I hope you have a wonderful International Women’s Day and a fantastic Tuesday!

210 Duolingo Days

I meant to post at 200, but now it’s 210 days in a row I have been studying with Duolingo. I almost lost my streak once but found a way to earn Stars. (Once you run out of stars, they try to make you pay.) But by “practicing” lessons, you can earn Stars. Then you can complete a task in order to continue the streak.

My mother and sister fly out tomorrow. At first it seemed like 2 weeks was too long, but now it seems like 2 weeks is too short.

it’s another Monday, ugh. I slept ok, feel pretty good. I got a negative covid self-test this morning.(twice a week for work) and the weather is looking good for the next couple of days.

All is well. Have a good week too!

Yet Another Happy Friday!

Its the start of my mother and sisters last weekend here.

We have no firm plans, we’ve pretty much covered the bases, as far as tourist things are concerned. We’ll go out to dinner, the beach and anything else they want to do.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Thursday Feels Like Monday

i took the day off yesterday, ND I’m putting in for half a day off today.

my mother and sister

Yesterday we just kinda hung out. We went out and about in the morning and afternoon. Last night I cooked on the grill last night.

it was off and on rain and looks like more of the same today.

Russia invaded Ukraine this morning.

Safe Arrival

My mother and sister arrived yesterday. They seem to like the apartment pretty well. My mother said it was much larger than she expected

I’m taking the day off work today. Nothing special planned. It rained a little on my morning dog walk.

In the news, Russia says it is looking for a diplomatic solution. The west seems to be ignoring this and threatening sanctions. Options are: make Ukraine a netural country, or do not let them jioin NATO. Ukraine joining NATO is understandiblly not an option for Russia.

Today is the ex wifes birthday. Happy Birthday ex wife!

Busy Week Monday

Good morning!

it was a good weekend. I got the apartment nice and clean, I fixed the gate, which was saggy. I repotted my avocado tree. I went diving and I went to the beach.

The water was rough and the visibility was poor yesterday. But it was still a nice dive, my first in about 3 weeks.

Today it’s back to work and tomorrow my mother and sister arrive to stay in the apartment.

I hope you have a good week!

See you tomorrow!
