Rainy days

Lazy farm day today. Got up late, woken by a yapping toy poodle, who just showed her happiness to see her "mommy" again: Robbie had just gotten back from feeding the fowl ("Geflügel") in the coop ("Hühnerhof"). Started working early, took only little breaks, mostly to read a book, currently Sydney Sheldon's "Rage of Angels" (Zorn der Engel) or the ATA magazine from the American Translators Association, which had an interesting article about how to cope with working from a virtual office instead of a real office with colleagues. Quite some helpful tips about time management, organizing and stuff like that. It has been raining on and off today, from little sprinkles to downpours, finally it stopped, the sun came out and I could hang up some laundry. While out there, we saw a snake today - luckily a harmless one, a rather pretty Speckled Racer!
Robbie just took a stick and tossed it out of the barbecue grill where it was hiding. It eats frogs and rodents ("Nagetiere") and is completely nonvenomous ("ungiftig"), so we didn't kill it.
The lunch yesterday at Sanny's Restaurant was great, we met an old lady, Marion A., who is 73 years old and full of energy and life. Very refreshing! She brought a homemade bread (buttermilk with some seeds), which was still warm. We ate it while we were waiting for the real food. The restaurant is a lot different from other Belizean restaurants, it has table cloths and real chairs (not plastic chairs), you sit outside and they have curtains at the open spaces which sway in the wind. Very pretty.
Back to work now, still 2 jobs waiting today ...

Hi Jana and Robbie,
great idea, your Blog.
Where is Sanny's at? I never heard anyone talking about the place. Didn't run across it either.
