And, maybe best of all, it rained today. It hasn’t rained in over 40 days, everyone is talking about a “mega-dought” in California, and water restrictions are in everyone’s future. Dave set up a catchment system to harvest the rain that fell on the roof, not fit for human consumption, but the trees won’t mind.
I’m afraid I dragged Ty and Phyl to Rosamunde’s Sausage Grill to eat. I figured any restaurant with sausage in the title had to be good. Nope, the sausages were only average. Still on top for delicious sausage is Ty’s husband Lenin. He grills the best.
A totally fun day nevertheless. There’s a lot of sewing ahead.
I asked the boys the other day, a series of questions.
What month is it now? -Janauary
What month comes next? -February
What special day comes in about the middle of February? (With a little from Mom) -Valentine’s Day!
Will you be my Valentine?
Kellen wasn’t too sure about answering the question, so he hesitantly said, “Yes.” Odin was certain of his answer, “No!” When I gave a Valentine’s treat to Kellen, Odin was horrified. “Wait! I changed my mind.” So I asked him again and he quickly said yes. A priceless moment.
Last Thursday, after work was over and errands had been completed, I went into my sewing cave at Justin’s for the next four days and came out only once. I got a lot done. I turned this black and white fabric (from my favorite fabric stores in Lihue HI)
into 12 piles of 2″ squares. There are about 700 here.
I came out of the cave on Sunday for a few hours and went to a historical society meeting and to watch the 49ers get beat by the Seahawks at Adrienne’s house. So sad, the 49ers lost. Time to put away the earrings until next season and eat a consolation brownie for breakfast on Monday morning. Ade made them – delish!
I am going to miss “my” upstairs bedroom
I will not, however, miss the owner of the boat Pat is standing next to.
This t-shirt was spotted at the airport. Another funny-to-me moment: my carry-on was pulled aside for further inspection. An “organic mass” had been detected – it was a candle, a gift from Pat.
This is the gully behind Pat’s house. From the other side, if you look through just the right gap in the fence, you can spy a secret garden and two people working quietly on their own plot.
Newly blooming spider orchids
One day’s catch:
Whale watching at Ahukini Point
with an eye out for the famous wild Kauai chickens and their flocks.
Yum! Lunch at Mark’s Place is a must.
