Monday Woes

Well, here we are on a Monday. After months of drought, the forces that be chose  my vacation to make it rain.

I read  some books, Orange Is The New Black, (not like the tv series). I read the Divergent trilogy/ the first two books were good, the third, had to put it  down.

It’s cloudy and thundery right now. It’ll get sunny again when I go back to work.

Rainy Winter Friday

Oh what a difference a day makes!

Yesterday was sunny and hot, today is cloudy  and cold.. It rained hard yesterday afternoon and last night, today, promises more of the same.

Today I was going to load up the kayak and head for East End to try and find the wreck I saw from the air. However the weather isn’t good for such ventures. So, at the moment, I don’t know what I’ll do today.

I’ll just have another cuppa coffee,and give it a think!

Happy FRIDAY!!!

Thursday Thoughts

Today the best I could get was 14 jumps.
The dogs are out in the yard and I am posting before my shower.
I have nothing in mind to post about so I’m just rambling
After I posted day-before-yesterday, I downloaded Wunderground. It seems by far the best weather app.
Glad it’s almost the weekend
That is all for today.
Over and out!

Experimenting With Weather Apps

I currently have three weather apps on my Nexus 7, 1Weather, Accuweather, and Intellicast. Weatherbug was in the running, but has been eliminated because the widget consistently quits working.

image

I like Intellicast quite a bit, but it wants to search for your location every time instead of just loading your default location. I’d like it if you could change the default view instead of it opening to the map every time. Difficult to navigate. But it is definitely the coolest weather app I’ve found.

1Weather boasts that they’re #1in the world, but I don’t know who says that, probably just 1Weather. Simple and plain (plain meaning ugly), easy to navigate. However right now it says sunny and it’s raining.

image

Accuweather is ok, something bugs me about it that I can’t quite put my finger on. I’m going to say it’s probably the best overall, good display and good widget. But it’s not the one I like best.

image

I would love to be made aware of whichever weather app you use and your thoughts on it.

Work today, don’t wanna go. Have a good one!

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.
image

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.

image

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.

image

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!
