Here's a pic from the final performance late in the night. She's a young, talented singer/songwriter. (You can hear what she sounds like on YouTube):
It was my bro's birthday, so we ended up popping champagne in the wee hours of the morning in celebration. And below, here's me in my PJs having a cup of tea early this morning, taking in the view before driving home. ^___^ There's a definite difference between Tobago waters (from last weekend) and the Trinidad shoreline. Our waters are way darker, there's a lot more forest/natural foliage and it's not manicured for tourism.
I had a wonderful time, and thank you guys for all the good wishes. Here are two more photos from the trip. The first pic was taken on Monday evening as the sun was setting, showing off my hard work decorating around the house/pool, making it all festive for my cousin's birthday celebration.
And the second pic was taken the next morning, as we were packing up to leave. I sat by the pool and did a little sketch in the house guest book, which we all signed. :)
I am quite looking forward to going back to this place when next I visit Tobago. :)
Oh! One last random thing - This week I took a photo of a flowering plant that we have at home. It's a single stem with no leaves, and it only blossoms once a year, for a very short time. We have had this plant for years, but I have no idea what its name is. So I'm posting it up here in the hope that someone knows what it's called. ( Can you identify this flower? )
Left work Friday afternoon, headed straight for the airport in a mad rush, flight got delayed for 3.5 hours, reached there late in the night, utterly exhausted. But all that was worth it, just to wake up to this the next day:
Tomorrow's the birthday celebration and then going back to Trinidad on Tuesday. I applied for the day off on Monday, but gonna have to call in sick on Tuesday and face the consequences on Wednesday.
( So worth it though. 2 more pics... )
In typical introvert nature though, I needed a little quiet time to myself today, so I decided to stay home, and left my cousins to entertain the tourists around the island. *g*
General: Any rating is fine for adult characters but please don't make anything sexual with characters under 16 or explicit with characters under 18. No non-con. Minimal violence in kids' cartoon fandoms. Thanks for making me something! Some prompts are more specific/detailed than others; it doesn't mean I like those fandoms more, I'll be happy to get anything for any of these requests!

2. Sick ferret today. Pretty sure it was just too much of the supplement we give her to help with dry skin and itching. The need to replace the cardboard we've been using in her cage is now bumped up to by the end of next week.
3. Turns out we have termites. Just around the front door and in one corner of the garage. My door ramp has to go as it's infected. It'll cost us about $1500 to treat and get barrier sprayed. Thank god for grandparent money. This also means the hostas I was going to plant in the courtyard can't go in yet. Went out and bought some window boxes to start them in. The package the bulbs are in got wet when the garage flooded a bit two weeks ago and the bulbs started to sprout. So that's tomorrows before work project.
