Polar Vortex Monday

polar.vortexIts record cold temperatures this week in the US because a polar vortex. Here I think temperatures are probably normal,  but it seems cool, and the ground is very wet with dew. It was good sleeping weather here last night, two blankets, cuddled up against the cold. Besides,  I don’t even know if we’ll feel any effects of the polar vortex down here or if so, when.

All I can say is KEEP WARM!

Rainy Friday

It’s a cold rainy Friday. It’s been raining for days. I’ve been driving the car not the motorcycle all week.
I haven’t been to the beach since Monday at lunch time.

I’ve discovered I don’t care about the weekends if it’s going to be raining,

I just deleted a long rant about work because it was not appropriate for this blog. I try to remain politically neutral here.

I’m going to get going now, and wish you a happy weekend.

I think foul weather makes me insane.

Two Days Till Thursday

Well, Monday is gone. now it’s Tuesday. payday is day after tomorrow.

Last night we went to dinner at Macabuca. It was pretty good food and there was a nice sunset.

Yesterday in town it rained hard almost all day. West Bay didn’t get drop. I couldn’t go on my beach lunch yesterday because of the rain and I was on the scooter. Now it’s nice and clear but I wonder it’s going to rain again today. 30 percent chance haha!

We’ve had a new coffee maker now for about a week. I suppose it makes acceptable coffee. It is one of those Keurig kinds with the canister.

My studying has been going extremely slow. I’m afraid I’m going to have to get up even earlier in order to study and accomplish anything.

That’s it for today. Have a terrific Tuesday!

Five Days and a Wake Up

image

Monday morning again, it’s hazy and gray. The sun coming up this morning looks just like the sun did setting last night. I don’t ever recall any weather quite like this in Cayman. Breezy yet hot.

Five days and a wake up till vacation. Very eager to go.

It was forecast to be windy this weekend, so I didn’t take the boat out. It didn’t turn out to be so bad. I need a trailer hitch, so I have some independence.

I mowed the yard yesterday, and The Wife did some landscaping. Looks goooooooood!

Have a good week.

Good Monday Morning To You!

Back to work today. What a weekend. Saturday flew by. Saturday I looked at my watch and it was 11:30, five minutes later, it was 2:30, and five minutes after that it was 5:15! Today they should be delivering the boat we won, Holy  Cow, it’ll be real then!

Sunday we went snorkeling, and The Wife tested out her new Underwater Camera, a Nikon  AW 100. Blue.

She got some good shots even though visibility was crappy.

Yesterday I let the chickens out around noon, and when we got home from the beach they were nowhere to be found. We were afraid we lost them but at sunset, all four came home and didn’t even try to get away when I picked them up and put them in their cage. It was very  pleasing.

There has been another lost chick around all weekend, this morning I put her in the cage with ours, She is barely bigger than an egg. The Wife won’t be pleased.

It rained hard this morning but  now it’s all clear… Scooter or car? Scooter or car?

HAVE A GOOD WEEK!

TGIF!!

I am glad it is Friday! Every day this week, it was hard to wake up.
Last night, we went and saw Despicable Me 2. It was verra verra good!

imageMost of you readers have the day off today. Like yesterday… and tomorrow, and the day after that… You lucky dawgs.

Weird thing happened Wednesday, On my desk, I found my scooter insurance bill, and my Society Of Broadcast Engineers renewal, late as all gitup. So I ran down and tried to pay  my  insurance and they said it wasn’t due, I paid it. My durn SBE membership was a different story, it lapsed and I had to renew like a delinquent. But I don’t know why the bills got missed, and how one got paid and the other didn’t.

Also, yesterday was the first sunny day in one whole week. I had a beach lunch and feel better for it. I hope it stays sunny for a while.

HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND!

Queens Birthday, and Chicken Troubles

Today, I slept super late late, (6:45) and have a sore back to show for it.

Trooping the Colour It’s a holiday here today, Queens Birthday Holiday. Happy Birthday to the Queen. The picture above is from The Celebration this year.

I think a Queen would be a good idea for the US, keep the government the way it is, but add a Queen (or King) to straighten them when they get out of line. The US Government has gotten way way way out of line. On the other hand, maybe I don’t know what I’m talking about, because Elizabeth is a good Queen, and I don’t know what it would be like with a bad queen.

This weekend was a good weekend, we had some rain, and some sun. We went to a great party yesterday with lots of good food.

Four of our five chickens attacked the smallest yesterday and she was near death. We separated her from the others and have been giving her water with an eye dropper every hour and she is getting stronger, But we need to find a way to get her to eat. She has barely grown since we got her, while the others are quite a lot bigger. They are getting hard to catch when we let them loose in the yard, but the wild chickens are much bigger, and want to peck them.It’s turning into quite the task, raising these chickens.. We need a coop outside…

Have a good week, Sorry if you’re working today.

Thursday Ramble.

I ended up going for the Nexus 7 with the Sharkk keyboard. I figured there’s nothing yet to replace my laptop, but I can replace my Kindle and use my laptop less. I ordered them on Amazon and should get them next week.

The first tropical storm has formed, Andrea. Here we go. Andrea came from the system that gave us that rain last week.
