Rain. Stop already.

12631387_1256154904411317_1964279461614208802_n02/25/2016 It’s pouring here. I mean, like a deluge of rain, our cistern is full and overflowing. As the weather station so aptly comments:

Nailed it. It rained over 4″ so far this morning.

All dogs are inside, shedding and sleeping. They do both simultaneously, with ease.

I had a quiet week last week, so quiet I don’t remember it.

I had promised Nidia that I would help her count her remaining inventory of TOM’s shoes so she can place her order. The day we were to do it she was sick so I met her son and his girlfriend Abby at the bodega and we counted shoes FOR 2 HOURS. We had to sort them by size, many boxes had random sizes in it, it was a semi nightmare. I came home and made a spreadsheet for Nidia and there were 1759 pairs of shoes left. A mere drop in the bucket of the 15000 we hope to deliver this year.

it was so hot in this small room, no breeze at all.
I was a dirty sweaty hot not in a good way mess by the time I left there.

Of course, I did the BJ’s gig on Friday and hung out with my regulars. On Saturday Carmen came here at 11 and we went to the airport. It was Carmen’s first day, indoctrination by fire. We had 4 flights arrive at almost the same time. Mass controlled pandemonium. Carmen enjoyed it and is ready for another Saturday. I was so exhausted by the time I got home that I melted.

Sunday was a day of nothing. I don’t even think I got dressed at all on Sunday until after I showered in the evening and then it was clean sleepwear. Lazy lazy day.

Monday was beach day again. I had friends coming from the west end of the island, they were meeting us at Oak Ridge and following me to Barbon. I picked Carmen and Brett up, got gas, met Lauren and Lori and we were off to the beach.

A BB gun for entertainment..it’s all fun and games until somebody shoots their eye out.

We had a small crowd, Roger brought his grill and music, no volleyball that day but we were all in the water for a long time. I had plans on Monday night so we had to leave the beach earlier than normal.

This is the detail on the new pirate ship nightclub that is being built down the road. It’s a scab on the pristine end of the island as far as I’m concerned.
Going to cause some accidents due to looky loos..


In all it’s glory??
View coming up hill approaching it.

Monday night we went to my friend Milesse’s house for dinner with 3 other couples and my buddy Eduardo, the cop. We had a great time, a fabulous meal and the company was excellent.

Eduardo and me

We were at Milesse’s until after 11 PM, which is crazy late for us. Normally we aren’t out at night, roads are miserable to drive on during the day, at night they are beyond horrible.

Wednesday I had my cleaning girl come and do all the windows and the window tracks. She dusted, scrubbed the porch, the upstairs and the steps. The house was clean for a few hours, until the dogs came in.

Our friends Sam and Chelsie came for dinner last night. They were going to come at 5 but Sam had to go move 4 boats to a safe harbor due to an approaching storm. They arrived at 7 and left around 10. The sky was still clear when I took the dogs out on the porch but I put one of the rain curtains down in case. When I woke up this morning it was flipping pouring and has been off and on all day long.

Highway, Max and Lola

This coming week is going to be a real busy one. This is just a quick update, a calm before the storm type of post..

Hasta luego.

Living on an island was a life long dream of mine. In 2012 I moved to Roatan and lived there for 4 months, went back to the US, packed up our belongings and sold our house. In Oct of 2013 we moved there permanently. Our house was completed in July of 2014 and we moved in. After 6+ years, I was ready to go back to the US. I made the move in Dec of 2019 and my husband came a year later. Here we are in Arizona, waiting for our island house to sell so we can sell this place and move on. I guess I'm more like a traveling mermaid.
