Sun, 5 Apr 2015 18:54:07 EST Yesterday We had our granddaughter Mariana with us yesterday as we went to Lihue to get our car serviced. We were dropped off at Kukui Grove Shopping Center where we walked around waiting for the car to be finished. Mariana wanted to eat at "Mad Face" (also known as Genki Sushi) but the wait time was 30 minutes and she was hungry. She went to Claire's with Kat (our daughter) where she spotted an umbrella while hubby and I went to find some food the eat. Kat told her to wait until after lunch. They...

Sat, 14 Mar 2015 23:24:19 EST Another cold day This morning it was 55 again! Brrr.... these cold mornings make you want to stay in bed! Too bad I have to go to work. The afternoons warm up to the 70s so it's not so bad. Evenings and early mornings are when it's been cold! <BR> <BR> Happy sparking!

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 19:47:28 EST Funny Yesterday my bedroom clock automatically sprung forward one hour even though the instructions have a setting for Hawaii Standard Time. We don't do daylight savings time here. Nevertheless, when I went out to the dining room, I noticed the clock that hangs near the desk in the living room was an hour behind. I thought to myself, "Um, must be our granddaughter played with the clock." She sometimes does that when we say, "It's time to go home soon," and she will move the time back. Only thi... Mon, 9 Mar 2015 14:24:42 EST Back home It's so nice to be back home. Being on Oahu for two days was great, and it was a great conference. Got to meet my counterparts from Maui and the Big Island, and Leeward CC too. Sessions were great, food was good, hotel was nice, but it's great being back home. Got a late flight back last night, and it's nice sleeping in my own bed! Of course, I missed by hubby too! <BR> <BR> Happy sparking everyone! Sun, 8 Mar 2015 15:15:47 EST Tomorrow Tomorrow daughter and I go to Honolulu along with about 50 of us from the college. We are attending a two-day (yes, Saturday too!) conference on Oahu. Staying overnight at the Ala Moana hotel and fly back Saturday night. <BR> <BR> Only thing is that we have to leave the house at 5:30 to catch the 7 am flight! <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! <BR> <BR> P.S.

Thu, 5 Mar 2015 03:45:05 EST Girls Day It's 3/3 otherwise known as Girls Day. I had a picture of the castle I got as a baby for my first Girls Day, but can't find it on my phone.

Mon, 2 Mar 2015 02:32:16 EST Sad day Today my friend and I attended our classmate's funeral. He was our classmate since kindergarten, and although I hadn't seen him since our last class reunion (which was our 8th grade reunion), I often thought of him. David was riding his bike and was hit on super bowl Sunday. He was a great person and will miss him! <BR> Sat, 28 Feb 2015 22:10:13 EST Skipped yesterday It was a busy day time to blog. Anyway, I'm glad it's Friday! <BR> <BR> Happy sparking everyone! Fri, 27 Feb 2015 13:12:21 EST Had fun Yesterday we had a line dancing session. It was quite fun although my "two left feet" sometimes went in the wrong direction. Oh well, I wasn't cut out to be a dancer. "Need more practice!" <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Wed, 25 Feb 2015 16:10:01 EST Line dancing I'm not one for dancing. The only dancing I did was in high school when the bon season rolled around (during the summer months). Today our Active for Life team is sponsoring a Line Dance session for all to enjoy. We had a briefing yesterday, and hope I can remember the steps! <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Tue, 24 Feb 2015 20:11:50 EST Monday We have our Monday meeting today at 3 pm. Hope it doesn't go beyond 4 pm. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Mon, 23 Feb 2015 14:58:10 EST
