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.
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!
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!
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.
an anemone on the move
A common, I don’t know its name fish.
A baby eel poking head out its hole.
I didn’t see the 2nd eel until I was home looking at the pictures.
A biggish crab.
Is a very friendly turtle at the main wall.
And below is Saturday’s dive!
I’m dreaming of a White Christmas tree worm.
Queen angel fish and my dive buddy.
Is the same Queen angel fish.
A pair of 4 eye fish.
Is a tiny mantis shrimp in her hole.
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,)
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.
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’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.
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.
