San Pedro Belize

Wet Wednesday

Forecast for Ambergris Caye Weather:  It’s a wet one.

So far we have had about 3 inches of rain from Tropical Storm Karl and it does not look like it is stopping anytime soon. TS Karl is hitting north of us and the wunderground tracking map shows it alternating between a tropical storm – tropical depression and category 1 hurricane. Even though it is not directly over us, it is causing a lot of rainy weather in Belize.  I did a quick check of the windows when I woke up and was pleased there was no water around them. Went to go let Molly out and found a big puddle by the front door – the rain was blowing that way and found its way in through the space between the door and jam. Of course, neither Molly nor Basil wanted to go outside.

D Sea – is having a wine tasting with Premium Wines on Sat. Sept. 18. Wine, Cheese, Fruit, Crackers. Stay after and Lily’s Treasure Chest will serve dinner for anyone who wants it next door at her place or on D Sea veranda – please pass it on. To see who is coming you can check D Sea Facebook invite.

10:am looks like rain is finally letting up a bit.

5:03 pm busy day doing behind the scenes work as a result did not blog as much as I had planned. Paul going to pick up sausages on the way home so I can cook us a nice meal. It is cooler now so I will bake them in the oven with veggies on the side.

5:33 – Been working through details of Alan’s fabulous donation for 10 pairs of rain boots (Size 9=2; Size 10=4, size 11=4. Total of 10 pairs) to the very worthy San Mateo Empowerment Project. Letting Kim who is heading the project know of the donation and how Eric and Vernon helped coordinate getting the boots down with Tm Tam and the Word at Work Church in Amarillo Texas. TT is always willing to lend a hand and does such great work here in Belize.

7:56 pm – Cooking dinner was a total flop – it was going really well and then poof the gas tank empty. We never got any warning signs this was coming – usually, we can tell by a slight smell that the tank is running low so we get it filled in time.

    Basil is doing good Nadia he and Molly are both safe and sound inside right now while the rain falls. What are your skill sets and area of interest in regards to helping?

    Stop teasing me I have visions of bacon wrapped meat dancing in my head ha ha – you are a total professional compared to my skill level – what I would not give to have you here. Start playing lotto so you can come down when Chunky and Ruthie are back and celebrate.

    See if you had your own professional (well I wouldn’t call me a professional, maybe food junkie) cooking your meals running out of LP wouldn’t have happened. On a side note, I sent a CBT happy for you with Rumpshaker as she has arrived on the island.
    Stay dry

    Wow you have a lot of rain Harold. The boots we found here at Harmouche Hardware are about $55 Belize. That would be great if your friends are up for helping out – thanks for your efforts.
