Monday already?

Despite less-than-super lagoon conditions, mana_triniand a few of his colleagues went spearfishing today, so that meant I got the house to myself for fun-'n-games cleaning. I got everything done except the mopping, but that is a *quiet* chore and I can do it in the morning while J is sleeping (he gets off work at 7:00). For the first time in several months, he is back to patroling on the boat. Today--tonight, rather--starts his three-day cycle.

So, while he was out on the tossing sea, looking for our supper, I did the aforementioned cleaning, scads of laundry, made that cd of photos for Sakina, resized and uploaded other photos, worked on slmcgaw's business logo (mostly brainstorming and testing out ideas), and chatted with her and frigg. Still haven't done any writing, but I'll get to that as soon as I post this.

J came home a little after 4pm with three fish: a grouper, a parrot fish, and one I don't know the name of in English. I took the parrot fish to Sakina and asked her to make us "poisson coco" for tomorrow's lunch. That way I won't be banging pans around while J is trying to sleep. That's the reason I gave myself anyway. *lol*  Sakina is a great cook, and any excuse to have her prepare a Mahorais dish for us is a good one.

After J rinsed his hunting material, we went to B&N's house, ostensibly to make sure it hadn't been burgled, but really to take hot showers and sip hot chocolate on their terrace while watching the sun set. A relaxing end to a productive day. Now I've got to get those words written.

    Autumn on my mind. Maybe because we are moving into the heart of our dry season, and the days are getting cooler. Maybe because I'm already…
