Very busy this morning. First thing was to walk the dogs before 6:30. Then I worked with 2 of our workers today to put more sun shade up on a veranda that was getting too hot for the solar power batteries that live there. After that we put up 4 pairs of eye hooks for my new elastic resistance tubes that will let me continue with the physical therapy for my shoulder. I'll be trying out new exercises tomorrow. Next, we marked the 3 palm trees that needed to be removed because they were shading some of the raised garden beds. We have far too many coconut palms here, so it is good to thin them out a bit. The guys love an excuse to use the chainsaw and made short work of cutting them down and removing the trunks and fronds. The vegetables will be much happier with their new-found light. So our first project was to minimize sunlight and the last project was to maximize it! Go figure.
Here's how the day started:
|5:57AM - False Dawn.|
|True Dawn - 6:24AM.|
The day has lived up to its start with a light breeze just ruffling the surface of the sea as the day has warmed up. The iguanas have been busy digging in the warm sand. The sun rules all life down here.
I'll wrap up with 2 sleepy pups in their new beds.
|Clove, with her deer-like legs tucked up.|
|Barnie, with her amusingly short legs and long body.|
Beautiful, your dogs look so contented. Good luck with your shoulder and the garden.ReplyDelete
Thanks, e. You are seeing the dogs at their best, lol. I have high hopes for my shoulder and the garden.ReplyDelete
Those dawn pictures are keepers. I hope your shoulder goes well. They can be stubborn at healing.ReplyDelete
Those dogs look as if this is the life!
Thanks, Boud. My shoulder is doing really well - almost no pain now so I can concentrate on rebuilding muscle. I was able to stop taking the NSAIDS about a month ago. I am quite fortunate.Delete
Glorious photos. Ain’t no sunshine here so far today.ReplyDelete
Hope the sun comes out for you, Mitchell, or that you at least get some of the rain that I know you love.Delete
Far too many coconut palms seems like an oxymoron!ReplyDelete
After reading your comment, I did a quick count of the coconut palms I could see from the veranda - at least 50 and I know there are quite a few that are out of sight! Better too many than not enough!Delete
I guess that men and their love of chainsaws is a universal thing.ReplyDelete
What sweet doggies!
Universal and useful!Delete
The dogs love their new beds and actually seem to be a little calmer. I wish they were that sweet all the time!
Beautiful panoramic images Wilma.ReplyDelete
You should make a canvas out of then and stick them on a wall somewhere in your place.
Thanks, Roy. I've been thinking of getting a display screen to cycle through some of my favorite digital images.Delete
I miss Barnie and Clove! They look so comfortable on their new beds. Give them hugs from me!ReplyDelete
I bet they miss you more! They ae really enjoying the beds in this cool damp weather.Delete
