Its a quiet Sunday at Cocobeach.
Dado, our construction guy, lives a good 3 hours away and choses to go home every second weekend. He opts to work when he is still on the farm and those are the days when things like the stair case with a landing appear in the goat house. His team mate takes the day off.
Bernie or Aljay will take the day off - the other one had taken the Saturday off. Analou does not work when we are not there - which is most weekends.
The gardens will get worked on. Seeds planted or seedlings transferred.
All the animals will be fed and watered and eggs will be collected.
Mrs Oz is on her way to Bali. She was supposed to get the dawn plane to Manila but it was cancelled. She pulled out all stops and got on a alternative carriers 830 plane so she could make it on time for check in. As she is travelling on a frequent flier ticket from my old Continental/United days of world travel, the Manila - Denpasar flight is actually Manila - Bangkok with an overnight in BKK - Denpasar Bali.
She is excited to be able to stop in Thailand and visit a friend she worked with at St Johns Medical Center in Santa Monica that repatriated to Thailand.
I have a long history with Bali and took Mrs Oz there 5 years ago - at the start of this adventure. She is staying for part of the trip with my Balinese family - they adopted me on my first trip when the patriarch met me and decided we were brothers in a former life. From that day forward, I am treated like a son and brother by these amazing people. They are by happenstance the royal family of an area of Bali so hanging out with them opens the doors to the most amazing cultural experience one can imagine.
Mrs Oz is on a shopping mission. She will buy several oil paintings and I have a rather unusual thing I want her to bring back to our beach
I want a terrcotta version if the peak of this roof. It will be placed on the top of a Balinese inspired Bale (gazebo) close to the beach in our front yard.
Ours will be a little larger - maybe 16x16 with some ourdor furniture and a bar.
