Sorry ya’ll – – – – yesterday kind of suddenly turned into a long enough day by the time I got caught up where I needed to be – it was also late enough that I didn’t want/couldn’t start anything else. This whole week just kinda came rushing up and caught be a bit by surprise……. I ‘hate‘ going to bed knowing there are things that need to be done….. but this week has proved to be a lot of it and helped realize – that I can indeed can go onto bed and mostly fall asleep- even though there is stuff that needs to be done. I guess maybe part of the aging process ? It just gradually wears your old a$$ down until you are at the point – where you could ‘probably‘ do it…. but just to tired to try it and and just old enough to not give a damn if it upsets somebody…….. With the appropriate amount of training/practice– I think I just might like this particular phase of my life…… definitely some future in it I think 😉
Finished up the big group of divers we had in last week….. recreational divers plus a handful of them getting various certifications. They all done really good and I can say with all honesty, that this bunch has been one of the most fun, enjoyable groups I have interacted with since starting my new ‘job’ back in March. Lots and LOTS of picture taking for them and I have spent the last day or so getting caught up on all my pictures for them. Getting them edited and put up into galleries….. Believe it or not…. this past 5 days, I have taken well over [conservatively] 3000 pictures……. ya gotta love digital photography~! I cannot imagine shooting that much film (and paying for it to be developed). I am extremely happy to report during the last 14 dives I have made in the last 4 days…. I finally learned a couple of techniques [that I have been struggling with] that should up my picture taking game an easy 25% – 30%….. meaning way less editing time and much higher quality pictures~! I’m happy and excited!
Today, being a valued day off… had some work laid into it starting the day out. I’m pretty sure I have mentioned that we are hosting a backyard get together/BBQ sponsored by our local Dive Club — in memory of a fellow diver and friend. Figuring we are going to have a pretty good group of people eventually in and out of the house (use bath room, get water, etc.) that we probably ought to spruce the place up a little bit. We kinda ‘missed’ Spring cleaning so we were a smidge over due. In between editing pictures during rest breaks, we managed to give the general living quarters a dang nice sprucing. I took screens out of the louver openings (we do not have any glass in any of our windows) and took them out and washed out many months of accumulated dust blowing through them. There was sweeping in places that don’t ‘routinely’ get swept in, dusting….. OMG the dusting. My Bride went for a quick last minute grocery run while I tied into my grill. As it turns out… from seeing the inside of it – I apparently grill a lot more than I thought~! All said and done now… groceries, grill cleaning, store run, sweeping, mowing [I knocked it out this morning] it’s been one hellva productive day~!!! Going to do the Pier memorial dive tomorrow morning and take pictures as requested by the Dive Shop sponsoring the dive….. more pictures, but it will be my honor to shoot those pictures. Gathering here at the house after the dive…… probably wouldn’t look for a blog tomorrow…… we’ll see though~
Good Night Ya’ll + + + + + + + + + + + Thankx for stopping in~!
