It’s Raining, It’s Pouring

7:34 AM
Late start this morning, but it’s pouring rain and I could not help laying in bed a bit longer. Been raining since about 1:30 AM. Rainy weather in Belize provides perfect conditions for snoozing in bed. Paul and I both woke up and rushed around checking the windows. I forgot that my radio was outside, but luckily it was in a dry patch when I found it.

8:20 AM

Rain is letting up a bit. Finishing of my first coffee of the day and chatting with Sharon on the coconut phone. Amazing how sometimes chatting with friends can put life in a fresh perspective. I say that because chatting with Sharon about all the good changes going on in her world is spilling over and making me feel excited about what’s to come for us all.

Erin and Jo start their journey here tomorrow with an overnight in Newark, and then turn up here on Wednesday for 10 whole winter free days. Enough of the computer for now – time to go clean house.

What a difference in the weather since yesterday, which was bright and very hot; perfect for laying in the hammock reading and listening to the radio. Today brings cool gray skies and puddles; perfect weather for staying in and getting things done. Belize weather is anything but predictable, but sometimes you just need to role with it.

I got a jump start on my work yesterday by filling in my blackboard list ahead of time. So far I have 10 important and fairly quite detailed things to do on my weekly list, and I keep adding to it as I think new things.

Almost finished cleaning our bathroom. Taking a quick blog break then will finish up and enjoy a hot bath. My plan is to alternate between cleaning something, filling in parts of my list and blogging. Having a short attention span, I find it makes things easier to do small short bursts of something, then move onto something else. It makes for a lot on the go at once.

Request from San Pablo neighborhood watch: if you see a light that is burnt out, please tie a colored fabric around the pole or something easily identifiable, and let BEL know where the bulb is that needs to be replaced. We all love living in a safe San Pedro, so this is a simple way to pitch in and keep it that way.

Shout out to Tina and Tim. Tina had to fly back to the states as her dad is not well. We are sending good thoughts your way.

1:00 PM
Enjoying a coffee break and deciding what comes next. Paul is still not felling 100%, so he’s taking a short rest break to recharge.

2:15 PM
FYI from F.O.T.H.S (friends of the humane society) please pass it on – today’s meeting is postponed due to rain – meeting will be held tomorrow at Road kill at 5:30 PM.

Just joined Hub pages and got my profile done , and I started a notes file in my social media folder. Will make a page soon, but probably not today, as I’m off to do some chores, aka get the bottles ready to put out for someone to take and sort out our plastic bags. Doing bags is a good one because I can sit in front of the TV.

8:23 PM
Got a few groceries and video Paul dropped by. Tacoboy and I are tag teaming dinner; I did the prep and he is doing the cooking. We are having rice and chicken stir fry with green pepper, onion, garlic and honey soy marinade. Yum. If you are feeling winters cold chill, check out Video Paul’s YouTube page to warm you up.

9:45 PM
It started pouring rain again, but it stopped almost as fast as it started. There will definitely be some big puddles tomorrow. We’re feeling content after a nice meal and watching TV.

Sorting plastic bags

  1. Thanks PureLove10

    Maria sells fruit and fresh juice Michele so if bags are clean she has taken them from me for re-use.
    I saw post about crochet bags on a recycling site and was hoping to find someone who could teach the school kids how to make them.

  2. What does Maria do with her plastic bags? Have you seen the items that La Gringa in Honduras crochets out of these bags. Very cool. Ridiculously time consuming, but cool.

  3. WoW… this is a very interesting story of your life!
