It's gonna be a great day today. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Wed, 29 Jun 2016 15:46:19 EST Tuesday It's a great day....not much interruptions. Boss isn't here (he's on vacation) so there are not too much traffic in the office. That's really great. Too bad it's not like this all the time, and I would be able to get a lot done! <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Tue, 28 Jun 2016 22:15:34 EST Monday It's another Monday. We have a holiday coming up next Monday. Yippee.... I know we just had a holiday on the 10th, but I look forward to holidays! <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Mon, 27 Jun 2016 21:52:38 EST Tropic Care Tropic Care is a free, short-term health care for the residents of Kauai. They came on 6/20 and will be here until 6/29. There are three sites: Eleele School, Kauai CC, and Kapaa Middle School. They offer free medical, dental, and vision services. I went to get some reading glasses today. It's a great service they are providing to our county! <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Sun, 26 Jun 2016 20:39:22 EST No snoozing We got up at the "crack of dawn" this morning to participate in the Kauai Mayorathon in Kapaa. Our free bus pick up was scheduled at 5:45 am. Bus didn't get to pick us up until 6:50. There was some miscommunication with the bus folks. Anyway, we got there and enjoyed the free breakfast and entertainment. Hubby won a $20 Jamba juice card! <BR> <BR> This blog is called "no snoozing" because it was another day of waking up early. During the week I get up at 4 am and leave home at 6 to head for... Sat, 25 Jun 2016 20:54:41 EST Went to Maui We had our secretaries meeting on Maui today. It was great to see most of the secretaries (one campus could not make it). I had lunch with two Maui retirees who were my counterparts (two different offices) many years ago. It was nice to see them again after more than 7 years! <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Sat, 25 Jun 2016 00:55:39 EST Library night It's library night and week 3 of the summer reading program. It's exciting to participate in the program! <BR> <BR> Have a great day!

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 05:05:54 EST Happy Father's Day Spent the day at the beach (again), this time to celebrate Father's Day. Our son and his family stayed at the cottages on base and we had lunch and fishing time with them. Of course I'm not a fisherperson so I was under the tent. It was hot! Hubby had great day. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Mon, 20 Jun 2016 03:26:35 EST Not a typical Saturday This morning, hubby, daughter, and I got up to go to the Lawai Kai beach which has no beach access but the public can climb/walk down the mountainside to get there. It is a beautiful beach. We volunteered to survey beachgoers from 8 am to noon. Our target was 14; we got 7. Not too bad for interrupting beachgoers. Anyway, this is our first and last time to do this! Four hours of being at the beach and asking a few (20) questions. <BR> <BR> Now it's laundry time! It's breezy but late. They are... Sat, 18 Jun 2016 23:20:49 EST Clerical retreat We had a clerical retreat today. The day started off with a tour of Kauai Coffee, then off to Koloa Neighborhood Center for our meeting. We had lunch from Koloa Deli (ordered sandwiches and salads), then a session on DiSC Personality Assessment. It was quite interesting. Anyway, it was a fun day! <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Fri, 17 Jun 2016 23:21:19 EST Library night It's library night...and the summer reading program is in full swing. The goal is to read 20 minutes daily...and it is something I look forward to doing. <BR> <BR> Last night we had to babysit our three grandchildren because their mom fell while running and had to go to the ER. She is not critically hurt, but she had some coral pieces in her injury. We had a nice time with the children! <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Thu, 16 Jun 2016 14:53:29 EST Hump Day It's hump day...and you know what that means? A great day! The weather's not that great, though. It's been raining here and at home.

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 04:31:03 EST Monday It's a typical Monday...quiet and nice. Today is the first day of our summer session, but there are no problems so far. Have a great day! Mon, 13 Jun 2016 15:24:37 EST Baby shower Daughter and I went to a baby shower today. It was fun...but we didn't win anything. There were games like mixed up titles, nursery rhymes, guessing the number of candies in the jars, the diaper game (where chocolate candy bars were placed in the diapers and we had to guess what they were). It was a nice gathering of coworkers and new friends. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Sun, 12 Jun 2016 21:45:13 EST Saturday Feels like a Sunday because I had a holiday on Friday. It's laundry day, but the clothes are in the dryer because it's sprinkling off and on...more on than off. So I gave up hanging the laundry. <BR> <BR> Yesterday we tried a new hair stylist (or barber) who is my classmate. The one we used to go to in Kapaa retired suddenly, and he was my hubby's classmate. Anyway we like our new person so we will be going to him on a regular basis. After the haircut, we went to Ishihara Market for groceri... Sat, 11 Jun 2016 22:13:41 EST Oh oh Almost midnight.... need to post! Sat, 11 Jun 2016 05:59:36 EST Busy day It was quite hectic today. I was the only clerical person in the office, but as far as phone calls and visitors, it was calm. The work that I had to do because of "last minute" requests was a bit hectic, but that's okay. I have tomorrow off! Fri, 10 Jun 2016 05:27:04 EST Hump day Hubby's coming to Lihue today because he has errands to do. We are having lunch at Garden Island Barbecue. We haven't been there in a while so hopefully the menu is good. <BR> <BR> Have a great day! Wed, 8 Jun 2016 14:49:11 EST Tuesday It's Tuesday. Nothing exciting happening today, and it's quiet.

Mon, 6 Jun 2016 15:39:06 EST Sunday The weather is nice today; better than yesterday. Got a text that our grandchildren will be over today. Now, do we clean the house first or after they leave? That's the question! Their ages are 7, 5, and 2. Hmmmm....guess it's better to wait. <BR> <BR> Have a great sparking day! Sun, 5 Jun 2016 19:12:02 EST Saturday It's a gloomy Saturday. Laundry is in the dryer today, no line hanging for us. I'm sure tomorrow will be sunny as it been this way for a few weeks now. Drizzly on Saturday and nice on Sunday.

Fri, 3 Jun 2016 19:51:11 EST Library night The summer reading program will begin soon. There's children's and adult groups, and all you need to do is read a book, and you get a prize. This program has been going on for a long time, but in the last four or five years, they added the adult group. It's nice because our children took part in this program, and now they are adults and have their own children. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Thu, 2 Jun 2016 23:07:19 EST Hump Day It's hump day of a four-day week. Nice! Have an eye doctor's appointment this afternoon. It's my 6-months checkup. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking everyone!

This morning we attempted to put up our Sunsetter Easy Shades; however, we need to get some lumber to add to our window frame due to the screens sticking out further than we anticipated. Then it started to drizzle so we put everything away. Otherwise, it's a great day of relaxation! <BR> <BR> Happy sparking!

Sun, 29 May 2016 19:00:57 EST Saturday Today we went to a workshop on "weeds" and how to get rid of them. It was very interesting. We also went to the community market, got some beans, had lunch at the Deli and Bread, and then went to Costco. Doing laundry now, but it's in the dryer cause it's raining! <BR> <BR> Last night we attended the play "Carnival" that the college put on.
