The first time someone told me that grass had to be torn up and overseeded every fall, I thought they were crazy! I just assumed the grass would automatically be green year-round since it's paradise! The problem would be that bermuda type grasses are the only ones that make it through the extreme heat of the summer here, and those grasses go dormant in the winter time. So Craig took on the overseeding of the front yard yesterday, and I tamed the jungle we call our backyard! I won't show any photos of the overseeding because it's ugly! And it'll be ugly for two to three weeks!
The torchglow bouganvillea are really pretty right now. All the shrubs are coming back with the cooler 90 degree temps.
After I finished working, I went into the house and found my Bengue from the supermercado on Isla. It has naproxen in it and really works. I'm going to buy multiple tubes of that stuff when I'm on Isla. I don't think it's been approved in the U.S. yet.
Which reminds me! Three weeks from this morning, we'll be waking up to one of these beautiful Caribe vistas! (If you can't tell, the excitement is mounting!)
After all the work, I took a swim in the pool yesterday. We've had it covered, so the temperature was still 88 degrees. Wonderful!
Last night, some friends who live in a retirement community 30 minutes out of town invited us and another couple for dinner. Their neighborhood has canal/lakes that wind between the houses, so we sat outside on their patio watching the sunset with the water and palms as a backdrop. It was beautiful!
The minute we got home, my head hit the pillow and I was sound asleep for the entire night.
We still have some chores for today, but I'm planning on working in some fun. After all -- all work and no play . . . .
