Happy Monday!

Twas a good weekend, productive and fun. Friday I got off work early, went to the beach then went home and I mowed the yard, I only got the front done because the grass was so deep and wet. (When I say grass I really mean weeds!) Then our dinner club went out to dinner Friday night and it was quite nice. Saturday I went diving and then had coffee with friends at Waffle Monkey. Good coffee! Then I came home and mowed the backyard, it was much easier and drier. Saturday afternoon my quarantiner moved out, free of covid. I have somebody else possibly going into quarantine here on the 13th of this month, which will be nice.

Sunday was another diving day, followed by a washing two dogs who needed it bad and seem to feel much better

And now it’s a back to work Monday and I actually don’t feel so bad about it.

I have a great week!.

Covid Is Back

We knew it would happen when we started reopening our borders. Yesterday, for the 1st time in more than than a year, we found 2 cases of locally transmitted covid. Yesterday at the grocery store, I noticed probably 1 in 5 people wearing masks.

Star Fruit Tree

Several months ago I ate a star fruit. I saved the seeds and try to germinate them. I use the wet paper towel in the dark method. Of the 3 I tried only one sprouted. I put it in a pot and nothing happened for a long time but today I noticed it had come up. I hope she makes it!

it’s Friday! And looks like another yard work weekend.

havva goodun!

Twigs Unlimited

I’m headed back to work today. After 3 days of vacation and a weekend, all used to clean up after Hurricane Grace. The yard is as clean as it can be. I started off clearing a few huge logs and ended up with an unlimited supply of tiny twigs, forever getting smaller and smaller.

endless twigs

In the end, yesterday, I ran the lawn mower over the whole thing, grinding up what was left. I’m done for now. I’m trying to save all the plants I can try to save. I am pleased with how things turned out, yard-wise.

And now:

Looks like more storms are coming.

Oh well, I am powerless over the weather. Have a good day!

Save some get rid of some

The yard cleanup is progressing, closer to done, clean up some cactus palm fronds and little sticks.

I’m trying to save the plants below. They came off their tree. There’s two buckets, one plant seems to be doing well, the other, not so well.

Trying to save

The branch below was huge, a third of the tree. The limbs covered a large area of the yard.

Big part of tree, gone

I’m trying to save the Jamaica Apple Tree, I made a tripod and stood it back up.

quite proud of my tripod.

I really need to rebuild the carb on my generator, which wouldn’t start when I needed it.

It’s a nice day, but hazy from some Sahara dust blowing over.

Have a great week!

Back to normal?

It’s back to work today for me. I’m going to request some vacation time because I need to clean up the yard and do a lot of work after Hurricane Grace. It might not have been a hurricane when it got here, but it was one when it left.

I have a lot of cleaning up to do, tree branch removal and general clean up of the yard. My paint locker blew off the porch and all the paint and gas cans were submerged underwater and they have to be gone through to see what’s good and what’s not good. Plus the paint locker itself must be repaired or replaced. There is too much to list here. And, work has been pressuring me to use up some of my vacation so yeay!

Sun’s out, let’s dry up some of this stuff and get ready for the next one!

Have a productive day.

Dayjumble

I noticed that my posts are usually a day off. My Monday post is usually about the weekend, My Friday post is almost always about Thursday, Most of the posts (that rhymes) are about yesterday. I guess that’s the way it’s gotta be, unless I started posting in the evenings.

Below are four pictures from my scuba dive yesterday. Some of these are among my favorites that I’ve ever taken.

It was a good weekend, Friday night dinner club, Saturday mangrove festival in town…

Also Saturday was family fun day from work at the beach. It was fun with a lot of people and a lot of food and I want a $25 gasoline voucher playing bingo.

Sunday I went diving and to the beach ⛱. And had my regular beach pizza 🍕.

I didn’t do any of my chores. I didn’t paint, I didn’t clean, I didn’t mow, I didn’t trim the branches on the trees. And right now I don’t care.!

And now it’s Monday and I have a dental appointment today. Oh boy!

Have a great week!

Green Things

Pictures of green things today.

Underside of a date palm (I think it’s a date palm)

My wife’s new leaf sprouting bottles in a box. So cute! A lady at work was throwing it away, and I saved it.

Our newest batch of bananas, just about ready for picking.

I feel guilty because I owe everyone comments. I appreciate each and every comment I receive. Thank you!

Have a good day!

No News Is Good News

It was a great weekend! Friday I stayed home while the Wife went out to Oktoberfest. Not my cuppa tea)

Saturday I went to the beach, wife had to work (only for two hours). The beach is full of seaweed, and I had the whole 7 Mile Beach to myself! Didn’t see another soul. The sea’s been pretty  rough, with the wind coming opposite the normal direction. Good sand n sun tho, it was great!

Sunday, we took Sheba to the beach at Barkers, not much seaweed there, came back, gave Sheba a bath. Then I trimmed the tree in the back yard. It had branches hanging down almost to the ground. After that we went to a friends house and hung out by the pool.

And I watched Football, Redskins won,  Dallas lost.

It was a good weekend.

Super weird dreams last night though. I had a brain twister about the anomalies of the number 96. And a different dream that someone was building real structures of optical illusions. There was a corner of a building, a house really, that was up on a pole. It had a still-alive woman from olden days, still young and not affected by time. And more illusions. Too weird to retain in the brain. Waker-uppers. I got up and laid on the back porch for a pretty long time, since
sleeping wasn’t comfortable. 

But it was a good weekend! I feel pretty good this morning, despite lack of sleep. We’ll see now the day goes.

Have a good week!

Wednesday Words

Wednesday Words?? Crappy title.

Today I’m taking my mower to the lawnmower doctor.

I put it in the car last  night and poor poor Sheba thought we were going somewhere.

It seems a shame. I take the mower in the car, then I’m stuck with the car all day instead of the motorcycle. Being on the motorcycle was good yesterday!

Our tree is finally getting some orange in it. It needed that rain last week. Most of the similar trees in town have been  orange for a long time. Town gets more rain.

I don’t have anything to post about. Brain not working, I guess. I’m still on my first cup of coffee.

Take ‘Er Easy!
