He has three beautiful children (two girls and a boy). We celebrated with a dinner at Kauai Ramen (I had cold noodles and tofu), and a vanilla cream pie (not from Kauai Ramen but from the Right Slice). We also had a Bavarian chocolate pie (from Right Slice) which I thought was way better than the vanilla. Can't you tell that I love chocolate. Anyway, the chocolate was a belated birthday treat for our daughter-in-law. Frankly speaking, I don't t... Fri, 5 Feb 2016 04:26:53 EST Hump day Getting over the hump...busy day doing lots of travel.

Then we add the General Education courses. We are short one Office Assistant, so that means the other OAs need to pick up the pieces. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking!

I'm on vacation today but very busy. We went to Lihue to pick up our new car. It's a 2016 Subaru Outback. Actually it's hubby's car. We traded in our 2005 Rav4.

Sun, 24 Jan 2016 18:07:22 EST Saturday It's Saturday, laundry day. Granddaughter slept over with her aunty (normally she sleeps with grandpa).

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 03:47:14 EST Hump day It's hump day and a short week. Hmmmm...sometimes short weeks are good, but sometimes they work against you when there's lots to be done. In this case, it's a busy week so... <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Wed, 20 Jan 2016 16:19:21 EST Feels like a Monday It's Tuesday but it feels like a Monday. It was nice to have a day off yesterday. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Tue, 19 Jan 2016 15:02:49 EST Holiday Today was a holiday for us. Kinda lazed around the house but got some cleaning of some old stuff done. Got my 10,000+ steps with my fitbit, but only 9 stars with the Spark Activity Tracker. Oh well... <BR> <BR> Tue, 19 Jan 2016 03:16:42 EST Magic! Daughter and I went to the Magic! concert tonight which was at the PMRF base. Admission was free and it was an awesome concert! Lots of folks but room for more. Not overly crowded. Music was great! Glad we went! <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Mon, 18 Jan 2016 04:19:40 EST Saturday Yesterday's post was really Friday's post.

I am waiting for this madness to end! Next week should be good. We have some irate students because we had to cancel classes due to low enrollment. Sorry, we can't please everyone. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Thu, 14 Jan 2016 03:52:40 EST Tuesday Not much time to do spark today. Happy sparking!

Sun, 10 Jan 2016 18:17:42 EST Retirement luncheon We attended a retirement lunch at Poipu beach. It was a little windy; however, it was nice and sunny. Menu consisted of hamburger/hot dogs and all the fixings (not for me), portobello mushroom burger (that's for me!....and it was great!), potato salad, kale salad, potato chips, garlic edamame, chicken wings, sashimi (not for me), and of course cake, cookies, and other desserts. It was great to see so many retirees attend. What a great party! <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Sat, 9 Jan 2016 20:24:37 EST TGIF It's Friday. Today we have our "Forecast Luncheon" which is in place of our annual Christmas party. It was very nice to have a free lunch and time with staff. Lunch choices were kalua pig, pork laulau, ahi fish with salad, but I got a "chinese special" which was a oriental chicken and chop suey. Other than that, we were busy taking care of a lot of business that detracted from our usual work. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Sat, 9 Jan 2016 03:26:05 EST Thursday It's Thursday, library night. The past two weeks I wasn't able to go to the library because they were open only until 5 pm for the week of Christmas and New Years. I was a little bummed, that that's how it goes. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Fri, 8 Jan 2016 03:48:07 EST Another busy day It is going to be another busy day. We had an early morning meeting, then another meeting at 2 pm. Happy sparking! Wed, 6 Jan 2016 15:31:12 EST Busy day Today was convocation. The program wasn't too long so it wasn't bad. We had a "four fishes" seminar (1-1/2 hours) after lunch. That was quite interesting. These activities take a lot of time away from work, however, they are mandatory. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Wed, 6 Jan 2016 03:30:54 EST Monday It was a busy day. Our boss had his faculty meeting. Went to pick up items ordered for his meeting: 3 fruit platters and some muffins. Got a message on my phone that they lost the order. Called Safeway; got things straightened out. Went to Safeway to pick up order; no communication between the front desk and deli/bakery departments. Cashier had trouble with ringing up order. Got back to campus just in time for meeting. Everyone enjoyed the treats! <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Tue, 5 Jan 2016 03:35:34 EST Sunny Sunday It's Sunday. Tomorrow is back to work again, with faculty coming in. It won't be quiet....too bad. It was so nice to have two weeks of "quiet time" without much interruption and phone calls. Oh well, can't have it like this all the time. <BR> <BR> Have a great sparking day! Sun, 3 Jan 2016 17:24:35 EST Back to the grind Well, the new year holiday is over. It's back to the grind, with today being Saturday, it's laundry day. It was nice to have that extra day to spend time with the family. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking everyone! Sat, 2 Jan 2016 19:54:11 EST 1/1/16 Happy New Year everyone! Wishing everyone a great year. <BR> <BR> It's a holiday for us. Had lunch at our son's place. Lunch was: sushi (made by daughter), nishime, potato/mac salad, namasu, beer battered cod (a little salty--from Costco), ahi with seasonings, chicken curry. Sure feels like Saturday.... <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> Fri, 1 Jan 2016 20:22:17 EST Hump day It's hump day. Two more days for 2015 then it will be 2016. <BR> <BR> Have a great day everyone! Wed, 30 Dec 2015 17:13:52 EST Tuesday We're slowly nearing the end of 2015. A few more days and then it will be 2016. Hope everyone has a great week! Tue, 29 Dec 2015 15:02:58 EST Monday, Monday Yes, it's another Monday. It's been pretty quiet; I like it this way. <BR> <BR> Happy Monday!

Have a great day everyone! Sun, 27 Dec 2015 19:36:10 EST Birthday Today is my birthday, the day after Christmas. We went to look for a new car for hubby and then we had dinner at Kim Chee #9. Dinner was Korean food, and daughter surprised me with a chocolate dobash cake! We then had cake with our son and his family. It was a nice celebration! Sun, 27 Dec 2015 02:44:55 EST Christmas day We went to our son's house for brunch. We had some Japanese food (nishime), potato macaroni salad, kim chee omelet, cinnamon roll french toast, chicken/apple sausage, and chocolate pudding.

Fri, 25 Dec 2015 21:14:37 EST Alone It's Thursday, the day before Christmas. I am the only one in the office. Everyone else has taken vacation. It's quiet so it's great. <BR> <BR> Merry Christmas everyone! Thu, 24 Dec 2015 14:36:47 EST Hump day It's hump day, and two more days of work (counting today, of course).

Oh well, have a great sparking day! Mon, 21 Dec 2015 16:51:51 EST Another windy day Boy the winds are gusting and blowing. It's a crazy windy day. Seems like it's getting a bit cooler and wintery. It's almost time to take out that extra blanket! <BR> <BR> Have a nice sparking day! Sun, 20 Dec 2015 15:14:07 EST Windy day It's Saturday and laundry day. Boy it's windy and gusty. Guess the laundry will dry very quickly. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Sat, 19 Dec 2015 17:13:25 EST Busy but nice We had an early morning meeting today. It was sort of odd to have a meeting at that time of day. We also had a natto lunch which was awesome. Great food (natto, that is). Everyone who came enjoyed it! <BR> <BR> Happy sparking!
