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.
