Today is my 1st day of a vacation I’m taking to clean the yard after the hurricane. I have 3 vacation days and a weekend. It will be a lot of chainsaw work and a lot of carrying away debris. I also will construct a major tree holder-upper for Jamaica Apple tree my wife grew from the seed.
And that’s about it for today. Happy Friday and have a good weekend!
Woke up before the alarm ⏰ this morning because of thunder and lighting. (I really would like to not wake up exhausted sometime). I did my exercise under a clear, starry sky with storms to the south. When I finished my workout, the first raindrop fell.
I used a little red umbrella when I walked the dogs. Umbrellas are fun!
It was a weekend with thunder and rain and sun and beach and diving and dinners out. Overall it was a well rounded weekend. I used a new underwater camera and had a “card error’, So I didn’t get very many shots.
Also, I’m reading the book The Great Circle. , It isn’t bad, But it seems like it is going on forever. It started off great, but now, to me it seems full of irrelevant information, Page after page of stuff I don’t care about. A whole chapter, They’re eating lunch, I don’t care. I’m thinking about putting it down, DNF, Did Not Finish. I expected a wonderful adventure, but it has vast boring sections. On the plus side, I do enjoy the parts where you know what people are thinking. Kind of hard to explain, hearing people reasoning in their heads. The parts where she’s flying her airplane are great.
The tree above is huge, gnarled and ancient. If you look at its base, you’ll see where it grew over a brick wall, which runs right through the trunk. I’d like to know how long it’s been there and I’d love to know the story behind the brick wall.
There was thunder and lighting this morning. But it was all to the south, in town. George Town gets flooded and not a drop here in West Bay..
