Looks like another rainy weekend..There was a sea swim Saturday that has already been cancelled and I was planning a little get-together at my house that looks like it won’t happen. I didn’t get my painting done last weekend anyway, I maybe can finish that or at least do a little more.
I have four pineapples growing in my yard. Below, you can see 3 of them.
Can you see all 3? They’re there!
Happy Pi day! 3.14. i got out of the Navy March 14 1985. Went in March 15 1979. Long time ago!
it rained last night! I was awake for my 2:30 insomnia session and it rained good for about 15 minutes. Puddles on the road this morning. The plants needed it a lot. Tap water just doesn’t do the trick like rain.
NASA just launched a rocket called Artemis to the moon. It has an empty crew capsule, will orbit the moon, return to Earth, and splashdown into the Pacific. There’s an article for you to read HERE.
I am also reading a book entitled Artemis by Andy Weir, (who also wrote The Martian, which became a movie.)
I have been pretty much unable to put the book down since I started it a few days ago.
Artemis is (was?) a Greek goddess. She was very affiliated with the moon, as you can see HERE.
(Not sure if the above image is Artemis or Diana. I guess Diana is the Roman version of Artemis)
Anyway, it’s my Thursday off. It started POURING rain about sunrise strong winds and driving rain. I don’t know what’s going on weatherwise. But it doesn’t matter, I’m just going to be reading my book.
This morning I picked my biggest pepper ever off my mutant plant. This is the plant seeded from the bell pepper seeds but the peppers are all shaped like the picture. They taste like bell peppers though. The other plant makes bell pepper shaped bell peppers.
Went to have a dental cleaning yesterday. She had her forearm on my chest and my head was touching her side. It occurred to me that “this is the first time I’ve felt anybody else’s body heat in probably two years. I think that’s why greeting hugs from friends don’t count as human contact.
Anyway, it was interesting.
Yesterday, it was raining and I took a lunchtime nap in my van. I think I slept really deep and hard. Tess good.
Last night I dreamed I was on the beach and the ex wife came walking by. She was wearing a modest black one piece Nike swimsuit and had a dog on a leash in her right hand and a yellow kitten in the crook of her left arm. I didn’t see the dog I was alone on the beach but scrambled to get away from the person sitting next to me as I stood up so she wouldn’t think we were together. The ex wife was smiling and looked happy and healthy. It was a pleasant dream and good to see her.
Today is a Wednesday, the weather is looking good. (West Bay (center of the universe) DID end up getting some good rain yesterday after all, if you read yesterdays post.) I expect today will be a snorkeling lunch hour.
Ya know what really grinds my gears? The fact that it rains everywhere else except in my yard
As you probably know, I live in West Bay (center of the universe) and as for being on an 8 mile X 22 mile island, it sure does segregate the rain. I can drive home through flooded streets all the way home only to find dry pavement and sunshine starting a quarter mile from my house. Repeatedly and consistently.
Right now there’s clouds all the way around here, thunder, lightning and I can actually see rain coming from the clouds…over there. Not a drop here.
There’s a saying in Cayman, and you have to see it to believe it. “It can rain in George Town and not in West Bay, but when it rains in West Bay, it’s raining all over the world”
Yesterday i reported that I dreamed about it, today it is a reality. The cat has a new bed in her new “secret hiding spot”. She got in it immediately after dinner and seems to like it very well. Yeay!!
We had a good rain shower this morning before the alarm. Our dawg walk was nice and cool with very clear, starry skies. I picked some lettuce and used it in my lunch (chicken wraps).
And the weekend is almost upon us. I have targeted the areas in the yard that need weekend attention.
