Confession

I ❤️ Coldplay!  Yup, I said it!

Carnival / Miss Universe

This was one of the many floats traveling the city tonight as part of the 5 day Carnival stretch in Belize. I liked it because it made me homesick for my friends in the Philippines.  I also enjoyed there were some drag queens, some mommas and some abuelas dancing!  Everyone being very authentic and having fun!

Chicken Sh*t Bingo

When I heard this was going down tonight I had to attend! There are multiple rounds and strict rules but the gist of the game is hold a chicken, move it around in big circles, move it up and down, “fluff” or blow gently on their tuckas and then set them down on the game board and hope the chicken poops on your number (or like this chicken did and go across two numbers at once 9 & 100) the lucky winner(s) has to take tissue and wipe off their number and take it to the bar to claim their winnings! People chant, scare, call and feed the chicken to entice them closer to their number. First for everything and I even saw a big chicken take down a huge cockroach!!

I love a rainy night!

What a great day at the cabin! I managed to finish my Home Depot order and that included my deck, shower, insulation, tools, cement, soffit, facia, gutters… The list goes on! Should have most of it delivered by next week. The deck could possibly be on back order..

Then after a full work day I relaxed on the deck in my screen tent for a sun shower. Quick 16 second video here:

Now I am eating a pizza during a huge thunderstorm! The best part is when the rain started I ran outside in a hilarious orange bathing suit some of you may have seen and began scrambling pails to collect water. LONG time since I have done that… certainly not in my apartment!

Rain Buckets

Blood, Sweat & No Tears

WOW! What a hard working industrious day. The rain kept me indoors for cabin work and I assumed I would be spend the day sleeping. Was I ever wrong! I woke up after 1 hour and got right into renovating!

I accomplished many tasks today but the most remarkable was the demolition of the kitchen cabinets! What possessed me to accomplish this task today (and alone) is beyond me but after only a few cuts and bruises I managed to remove the old cupboards, clean up after myself, and rearrange the entire kitchen for use this week!

Not sure the pictures tell the story but see for yourself!
