Its Discovery Day, a holiday Monday here in Cayman. It was supposed to rain for 10 days but it’s been mostly sunny. Hurt at last two of my low light plants pretty badly. I out them out for rain and they got sunburnt.
Below are pictures from yesterdays dive.
Also, on Saturday, I did the CIASA 800M Swim, I was pleasantly surprised to come in 3rd in my age category, willing a 3rd place medal. 3rd out of 5. I’ve never been a racer, I’ve never been on a swim team. I’ve been a lifeguard and swimming lesson teacher and scuba diver/instructor. I realized I am slow and steady,.one speed no matter how far I have to go. So I’m no longer obsessed about going fast, I want the t-shirt.
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.
I’m getting ready to get the house painted, and I planned to spend Saturday on moving a large amount of tile and cinder blocks that were next to the house.. Well, I went for breakfast first with friends and had a flat tire and it pretty much took 3/4ths of the day to get that sorted out. So I ended up moving the material on Sunday, and I got it done Now I can start worrying about the money needed to paint he house..
I still am not supposed to scuba dive because of my tooth and bone graft. Next weekend oughta be OK.
On a positive note, I went out and had a solo dinner and watched Cincinnati win. Very pleasing. I grew up in Missouri, but as a boy, I saw the Bengals practice in Wilmington Ohio, where my Mom is from. Plus, in Missouri, most people were Cardinals fans and switched to KC when the Cards fled to Arizona.
it was the first NFL game I have seen in probably 2 or 3 years.
I slept comparatively well last night, thanks to Lois’s Prayers no doubt.Thank you.
It was a good day yesterday. Went diving and met the contractor (who actually showed up on time). He trimmed the edges of the tile and filled in a few spots missed by grout. I gotta say, the job looks good!
Now I’m ready to have a party!
Below are a few pictures from yesterday’s dive. Ya got your standard Queen Angel, your daily Flamingos Tongues, not to mention Cool Courtney and Bermuda Brian..
And now it’s ā nuther Monday, which I’m actually looking forward to.
I had an interesting weekend, I took the day off Friday and went snorkeling with some friends. Saturday a quarantiner dude came buy to pay for his quarantine after his return flight Nov 6th. He liked the place, paid, and left for the airport. 10 minutes later he calls and asks if he can leave his car at the house. I said OK and that I would even give him a ride to the airport. (I’m so nice!) I took him to the airport and dropped him off. 10 minutes later he calls and he left some travel documents in his car could I go get them. Perturbed now, I came back home, dug through his car to find his documents and took them to him at the airport. The guy seemed shady, nothing he said was specific, I had a weird feeling, but ignored it, maybe he was just a weird kid. After I dropped off his documents, I went scuba diving. As soon as I was done diving and got back in the car he called again. Customs found $24000 in cash in his luggage undeclared. They took the money and wouldn’t let him fly. I picked him up and took him back to his car, at my house. He told a story about being a real estate auction investor and they wouldn’t take credit cards or checks it was only cash. I gave him his money back told him I thought he was a crook and that’s the end of the story. It really killed my Saturday, I missed my 8 o’clock appointment because he was late coming to see the apartment and pay, I missed my 10:30 appointment because I went to go get his travel documents. I missed my planned grocery shopping excursion because I took him to his car and get rid of him.
Saturday and Sunday I went diving and took the dogs to the beach Sunday. Pictures below
I have a happy Monday, trust your instincts, and have a good week!
It was a semi productive weekend. I got a lot of little tasks done.
Sunday was nice, I went to breakfast with friends. Then I went to the beach.
YouTube is acting weird. The video keeps playing over and over and if you swipe down to get to the comments and settings, it goes to the next video. . YouTube must stupidly be trying to emulate TikTok. Also the embed link won’t work, so no video for you, my dear readers, today. Sorry!
