Really Good Weekend!

It was a really good weekend. I got the front yard mowed in between downpours, I fixed a silly mistake I made on one of the anti chicken lids on the planters. I re-did the tripod that is helping the Otaheite apple tree stand up straight (I think it’s slowly falling over since it fell in Hurricane Grace and I stood it back up). I cleaned the floors in the whole house. I dissected a cherry tomato and planted the seeds. (We’ll see how many come up.) And I went to a “Sashing” for the Cayman Islands Miss Universe contestants. It was super fun!

Lisa is sponsored by One Heart, and she works there. I was invited to attend by the owner. I was so happy to be there!

Sunday morning I slept 90 minutes later than usual, which is huge for me. I barely stayed up past my normal bedtime. I got up at 6:30! Can you believe it!?

And now it’s a back to work Monday. Weather’s supposed to improve. I can mow the back yard this week!

Have a great week!

Happy Good Luck Day!

Friday the 13th is better than any Monday! Friday the 13th’s historically have been lucky days for me. As well as black cats.

It’s supposed to be rainy as well. It”s clear and sunny now. I put all my plants out last night, and if it doesn’t rain, my low light plants will get burnt. Hope not.

Also maybe I can get the housecleaning done that I FAILED to do last weekend!

In any case, have a lucky day and a fantastic weekend!

Late Night Snacks

Last night I went out for a late night (about 8:30 pm) snack. I ended up at a Venezuelan food truck and had a Pabellon. It was like a sandwich with beef and black beans and it was really really good. It was in sandwich form and was perfectly what I wanted and I didn’t even know what I wanted. I’ll be back there for sure.

I took a picture of it, but the picture doesn’t seem to be on my phone. I have noticed, that on this phone, the spacebar sometimes doesn’t work and frequently I take a picture and the picture doesn’t take. Quite annoying. I’ll have to be more careful in the future.

we had a good rain this morning, and now I’m off to work. Have a good day!

Watta Weekend (So Far)

On Friday I went diving early and was home before the internet man came and supposedly fixed my internet. Then I trimmed the hedges, and mowed the front yard. I went to town and picked up a dozen 18×18 pavers so that I could double the size of the backyard patio below the apartments back porch. I also did a lot of shopping, running around and errands. Saturday I went diving again, and the sea was rough when we got in, and super rough and pouring rain when we got out.

Then, Saturday afternoon, in the rain, I laid the pavers down in the backyard, what which isn’t easy because they all have to be leveled.

My body is sore from so much physical exercise and bending over, and my left calf is very sore because diving Friday I had a very bad cramp just before I got out of the water. I feel all beat up but good.

Friday we did a good deep dive at the main wall and and Saturday we stayed kinda shallow at the mini wall (Different dive sites) and today is too rough and weathery for diving period.

There was an 800 Meter Sea Swim scheduled, that was canceled Saturday. There was a Coral Fest exhibition for Sunday that was canceled because of covid. The sea swim was previously canceled because of covid, and was canceled yesterday because of the weather.

Below are pictures in 2 groups, Below is Friday’s dive.

And below is Saturday’s dive!

Today is Sunday, but it’s not sunny at all. It’s cold and windy. And on-and-off-again rainy.

I had a weirdish breakfast, my bagels were frozen, so I had a pretzel instead. ( If the salt and pepper is on the other side of the eggs,)

Eggs over easy with a pretzel.

And I’ll talk to you tomorrow!

Nov 2021 Already

Hard to believe it’s November already. Tropical storm Wanda formed in the Atlantic, that should be our last storm this year simply because there’s no more names in this year’s storm name list. Yeay!

Afraid of a Friday night thunderstorm.

I had a very nice weekend. .I went to movie night Thursday unfortunately by myself. Friday I don’t remember much. I got up early and went and saw my marriage counselor. (It’s like closing the barn door after the cow got away, I know.) Then I went and had a nice breakfast on the waterfront. I went to the beach to swim my half mile, and it was too rough. Later on at home, we had a good thunderstorm.

Starting (I guess) Friday, it was stormy and windy and cloudy and rainy almost all weekend. Yesterday I turned off the air conditioner for the 1st time point may or June. Hopefully I will enjoy a few months of lower electric bills.

It was too rough for diving or swimming all weekend, I did get in the sea and took a Long Beach walk with some friends.

Yesterday, although we didn’t dive all weekend we (our informal dive group) did go to a very nice brunch at Luca. And I forgot to take a damn picture , I meant to…

And now it’s a Monday morning November 1st. It’s still cloudy and we have weather and it’s supposed to rain again tonight. But I’m in very good spirits.

Have a great week!

We need rain (it’s raining)

It seems like it’s raining everywhere but here. I’m in the mood for a couple days of good rain. Maybe we’ll get some rain from the storm after Fred.

It was raining a minute ago, but it stopped. It HAS been raining, just not enough. Seems like it rains everywhere but here. Here being in my yard.

It’s cloudy and rainy enough to stop you from going to the beach. It stops you from riding your scooter instead of driving your car. But it doesn’t water the plants.

Anyway, I can’t control it, so I might as well not worry about it. HAVE A GOOD DAY!!!!

Wednesday Washout

It’s Wednesday. I have nothing to post. So here’s a bunch of funny pictures.

Yesterday, my weather apps unanimously called for no rain, it poured and flooded town and I got soaked on my scooter. It didn’t rain a drop here. I’ll be watering the plants before going to work today.

I guess I’m driving today.

Have a Nexellent day!

Farmers Market, Worth a Checkout

I’ve been meaning to attend this for quite some time, maybe today is the day. There’s a different farmers market near where I work everyday, but it’s only full and busy on weekends. This once a week might be really good.

Got a letter yesterday from the power company, they want to put a-pole in next to an existing pole in my yard. The new pole ewill have 2 anchors in my yard. I guess it’s gonna be no big deal but I’m meeting the person from the power company this afternoon. I just hope they don’t recommend offense. They insure me they won’t.

I have a quarantiner moving into the apartment this morning, It’s only 5 days now people come on down! I have somebody else interested in renting it as soon as they move out on a month by month, basically looking for somewhere to stay while they find somewhere to stay. Then I’m expecting visitors in October!

For some reason I’m running quite late today, My exercise took longer than normal I think. And the dogs and I had the maximum length morning walk.

The weather app calls for thunderstorms today but right now it is perfectly clear. Scooter or motorcycle? The great daily dilemma.

Have a good day!

Random Fridayness

Two Spotted Eagle Rays inside the house

Itsa FRIDAY! It rained last night and it’s lighting-ey this morning.

Above in the picture are two spotted eagle rays. I had one, and had the other and decided to take a picture of them both.

Last night I considered going to Movie Night, but went outside and it was raining. Later, I checcked the Westin webcam and movie night looked like I was missing a good one. But a few minutes after I took this screenshot, I looked again and there were water droplets all over the camera. So it did rain at movie night after the below picture was taken. I don’t even know what the movie was anyway. Someone else told me that Tom Felton, the actor who played Draco Malfoy was there.

And it’s Friday, The only thing planned for the weekend are more house repairs (electrical) and lunch with the wife.

Have a good weathered weekend!

Day After July 4th

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.

Have a wonderful week!
