Up With The Birds

For some reason Paul woke up very early this morning. I lay in bed and tried to fall back asleep, but all I could think of was how good an iced coffee would taste. Also debating if I should get up to watch the sunrise. 4:40 AM, still laying there a few minutes longer. I finally get up and start my day.

Stay tuned for more…

5:23 AM
Looks like sunrise watching will be a bust, it just started raining real hard. Good news is I’ve crossed updating my phone list off my list; always a difficult task for me as I’m dyslexic and often flip numbers. I keep a copy of my phone contacts on my computer as a back up, and it’s proved handy many times when someone rings me to get someone’s number, or has lost all their numbers and is starting from scratch. Michele in Playa has a good tip – email yourself your contacts, then you have it wherever you are, as long as you have PC access.

The rain stopped quickly, but it still looks a bit iffy outside. I’m listening to the birds singing and watching Amanda and Cal’s Mosquito Coast weather cam instead of going to the beach. We are so close, if it starts looking good for pictures I can dash out the door anytime. Going through my new emails and got to a hoax one. I have to admit that’s a pet peeve of mine, that people don’t bother to Google and find out if what they are about to send is a hoax or not. In most cases, a quick search will prove there is no threat and no reason to keep that email alive and circulating. If you value your friends enough to want to warn them if need be, don’t you value them enough not to send false alarms and spread fake emails?

6:35 AM
Raining again. This gives you a sense of how off and on it’s been. For the most part it’s been raining in short heavy fast bursts, except for Sunday night. Had planned to go to town later for some groceries, and hoping that we get some decent dry time to do so.

9:20 AM
Woo Hoo, it’s sunny again. Hope it stays like this so we can have aqua-fit classes on Thursday. Going to put a second load of laundry in and take a grapefruit break.

Mini chat been pretty finny since last night. BCB is working on some secret project and we all keep asking him for hints and lots of people are making outrageous guesses.

12:00 PM
I cannot seem to motivate myself to town today. The good side of that is I’m continuing on with house cleaning and making some headway. Weather is very undecided. We are currently experiencing extreme sunny periods alternating with bursts of rain. Still trying to dry furniture and cushions out on the veranda.

1:57 PM
Paul went to town to run errands; one of which was to get a bit of cash from my PayPal account. Only to find out he had an expired card on his hands. Luckily, Video Paul was here when my Paul called. It was easy to rectify the situation and get VP to meet my Paul at perk with my new card.

3:34 PM
Just got a message from Jo on coconut phone. They are at the airport, on the first leg of their journey to Newark, then will be headed this way tomorrow. I’ about ready to take a break from everything right now, it’s been a long day already.
