As of late...

I haven't written much lately, I often take pics intended for the blog (specifically of my creative kitchen skills), and then never get around to posting them.

Aside from eternal picture taking, I've been working a lot, between the 2 jobs.  Sloooooooowwww internet connection makes work much more time consuming than it should be.  Hopefully this is not a permanent thing.  I try either dive or swim every day.  I don't always succeed, especially now that we are 2 hours ahead of my employers.  When I'm ready to be done for the day, they're just getting back from lunch!  It has its perks too though.  When I wake up at 9, most of them aren't in the office yet.

The weather right now is crazy.  Lots of rain, which brings some comfort.  Sometimes sun, which seems to appear about the time people have given in, and decided to weather the storm and go out anyway.  Ha ha!  I brought a lightweight rain coat with me, and am VERY glad I did.  I love it, it comes in handy this time of year.  No hurricanes have come even remotely close to us.  They say the rain stops about the first of the year.  I'm trying to appreicate it as much as I can, because it's going to be a loooonnnggg HOT summer.

Next week is Thanksgiving.  There are so many expats here, it's celebrated all over the island.  I have a couple of opportunities to spend the holiday with friends here and there.  I'm sure it will be a great time, wherever I end up!

Enough rambling.  Random pics, in perfectly random order!

The prettiest little girl

Kids from a local school came to CoCo View to perform traditional dancing

Loved watching them!

Darell (L) from Seattle and Marcos (R) from Honduras, looking for the owner of this T shirt they found at the bottom of the ocean on their morning dive. 

Same feeder, new guest.

This cute little guy was in my place the other night.  My neighbor probably thought I was crazy when she walked by and saw me crouched down, photgrpahing the wall next to my front door!

He is less than an inch long.  He was soooooo tiny!

I couldn't get anything next to him without scaring him away, to depict size, and explain just how tiny he was.  But this helps, wine cork board in the foreground.  Scared little gecko in the background.
This is Elwood.  He belongs to my neighbor, but prefers my rug for some reason.

Elwood can't be bothered by silly things, like moving when a door opens into him.

Yep!  It's true.  Toaster over cooking, at it's finest.  Not too shabby!

Storm rolling in today

I spent a little while trying to figure out what kind of milk this was.  Vanilla was my guess.  Until the cashier asked me if I liked Oatmeal.  Ok, so now it's Vanilla Oatmeal...??

By the time I got home, it had magically translated itself!  Orrrr, it's in English on the other side!
Alex, waiting for the rain shower to pass.

Currently, my 'desk'.  and my 'work attire', ha ha

Another friendly Gecko, eatin the bugs!

It never gets old

More tasty treats.  All of my fruit & veggies come off the produce truck in town.


  1. I really enjoy reading your blog and seeing your pictures. Is it wrong to be so envious at my age? Well, I am - so there!
