I can't stop with the cute baby pictures...
He is too cute for words.
When I pause for a minute while doing dishes and look out my kitchen window, this is my view...
If you look to the far left, you will see a tree that looks like a flame tree, but it is yellow. So vibrant.
Part of our back patio has become a plant hospital. I was digging around in the compost bin and look at the surprise that awaited me:
I had forgotten all about the Rota pineapple that we ate a few months ago. It is now in its own pot with a special spot in the sunlight.
We went to a barbecue down at the Ranch for Father's Day on Sunday and look at the neat caterpillar we found:
We are yet again without water in our tank. I finally had it and called CUC today. We pay them a flat fee every month for water, and today I basically learned that it is for nothing. Our water comes from a reservoir (and rain catchment off our roof) and when the water level gets high enough in the reservoir, then the pump turns on, sending water to the residents. If the water level doesn't get high enough, we are SOL. Yeah, made my day. The kind lady at CUC told me that if it was a hardship to call my Mayor. Why should I have to involve the Mayor? It isn't his problem. And it isn't a financial hardship per se, it is just another one of those things that makes me really miss home. Sorry Saipan, but today your CUC is at the top of my list of reasons why I dislike it here. Guess we will be calling the water company to deliver water AGAIN. More money out of our pocket. I am so tempted to write a letter to someone, anyone about this and how frustrating it is, but I am sure that it would go in the round filing cabinet.
