Belize Bird Facts
Flash back to last night – at the beach yesterday Cindy asked if I was having a day off and I said yes I think I can actually do it and – just manage minor work I did earlier. I spoke too soon – a random email I got form someone looking for Paul to help on website he did for her – getting Dichroic jewelry pictures and her hand painted greeting cards up reminded me that getting Belize Picture Jewelry in my store was a long standing task that I needed to cross off my list.
Since I was already in full work mode – I decided to get back to part 2 of bird posts from Colette. In order to finish this one I had to keep surfing through Elbert Greer’s Bird Pictures. It is a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack as he has so many Belize bird pictures – enjoyable task though as he takes great photos.
Where does time go I just realized it is 6:40 and I never got around to making my sandwich for lunch that I kept thinking about or starting dinner. Finally managed to pull myself away long enough to get the chicken legs breaded and in the oven.
9:00pm my chicken is calling so I am calling it quits for work – made it as far as page 33 of looking through Elbert’s pics and found only one off the list. Saw many many cool ones and saved some for future use.
10:00pm rain is getting a lot heavier now – some tv channels are going out – thanks Agatha. Mosquitoes are just terrible – we are burning a coil inside the screen door and it still has not stopped them from bothering us. Going to go help Paul empty our bedroom closet we are concerned about everything getting soaked if the rain keeps up through the night.
Monday morning 6:30am – still looking a bit gray out there but I bet the sun will try and come out later. I am glad our One Caribbean meeting got pushed back till tomorrow – gives me time to get more done here instead.
