Tue, 23 Aug 2016 00:59:51 EST Sunny Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6222134 It's a sunny Sunday. Day to house clean which is our usual ritual.

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 20:02:07 EST Nice Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6221611 It's a nice, sunny, breezy Saturday. The laundry is hanging outside, getting dry with the sun and wind. It's great to have that extra day this week. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Sat, 20 Aug 2016 20:06:34 EST TGIF http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6221055 It's a holiday for us today.

Fri, 19 Aug 2016 05:08:29 EST Hump day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6220096 We're going over the hump. It's especially great since it's a short week with Friday being a holiday. We'll have the two grands that day since it's only a state holiday, not a federal one. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Thu, 18 Aug 2016 05:33:56 EST Convocation http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6219443 It's back to work for faculty, and we had convocation today. It was quite long, so it dug into my "work time." Lots to do and not enough time, especially since I was off yesterday. Stayed a little late to catch up on some things. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Wed, 17 Aug 2016 04:52:21 EST Vacation http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6218759 Took another vacation day. Hubby had his follow up for his eye surgery. Picked up the two grands from school today. We're not used to having two after school. It's gonna take my hubby some getting used to. <BR> <BR> Have a great evening! Tue, 16 Aug 2016 01:24:13 EST Lazy Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6217987 It's Sunday, and it's nice and warm. Housecleaning today. Off tomorrow to take hubby for eye check. Then it's back to the usual. Friday is a holiday for us. Yay...we get our haircuts on Friday. 7:30 am...so gotta get up early. Oh well. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Sun, 14 Aug 2016 20:21:34 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6217584 Laundry day, today. It was nice and breezy. Got all of the laundry hanging out to dry. <BR> <BR> Grands are here. Parents went to dinner at the new restaurant, Japanese Grandma's Cafe. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Sun, 14 Aug 2016 02:30:26 EST Yesterday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6216829 We had an active shooter drill yesterday with all of the important personnel (first, emergency, red cross, etc.). We were hiding in one of our offices for about an hour. Glad it wasn't longer than that, but it was good practice. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Fri, 12 Aug 2016 15:08:11 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6216308 It's library day today. I can't wait to see what new books are out there. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Thu, 11 Aug 2016 18:07:44 EST Hump day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6215802 It's hump day....yay. It's the middle of the week, and the weekend is getting closer. Nothing planned for this weekend so it should be the usual. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking everyone! Wed, 10 Aug 2016 21:15:19 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6215328 Wow, it's winding down. The "summer" is coming to an end. Faculty return to duty on the 15th. So quickly the summer has passed by. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Wed, 10 Aug 2016 04:51:46 EST 8/8 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6214703 Our granddaughter was born 8 years ago. She's celebrating her birthday with a "pirate" cake and a dinner at Kauai Ramen. We will join them tonight! <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Tue, 9 Aug 2016 04:39:54 EST It's Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6213971 It's another Sunday. However, our granddaughter is here because she didn't want to go to Lihue with her family. Last night they stayed at the Grand Hyatt, and my daughter-in-law has a friend who is diamond status. They got a really nice suite--top of the line. It was like a condo and it was super nice! They even had access to the Grand Club which is similar to the eticket club at the Disneyland Hotel where they have four "mini meals." We had a light dinner and desserts. <BR> <BR> Happy spark... Sun, 7 Aug 2016 22:06:31 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6213433 I got my hepatitis A shot today. Hubby got his on Thursday but because he is under Medicare, he didn't need his doctor's prescription. I had to wait for my doctor's prescription. There's an outbreak currently on Oahu and a few cases on Kauai. It's quite scary since an airline attendant is one of them who got it. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Sat, 6 Aug 2016 21:09:48 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6213082 It's Friday. I was busy at work helping our new Office Assistant with different tasks. Not much time to spark today! <BR> <BR> We attended the last bon dance of the season. Bon dance is a celebration to honor the dead and there's Japanese dancing, food, games, and fellowship. I saw two of my high school classmates there. It was quite nice. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking. Sat, 6 Aug 2016 06:51:41 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6212489 I took the day off to be with hubby who had eye surgery today. He has angle closure glaucoma. He's home now recovering. It wasn't too bad, but he needs to rest. He also got a hepatits A shot today. There's been an outbreak in Hawaii, and even some on Kauai. I need to wait for my doctor to send the prescription over to get my shot. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Fri, 5 Aug 2016 01:03:06 EST Hump Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6211946 Yay it's hump day. I'm off tomorrow since my hubby will have eye surgery. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Thu, 4 Aug 2016 05:52:19 EST Rainy day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6211047 This summer has been weird. We have more rain than usual. Today's a rainy day. Luckily when I arrived at work, it wasn't raining. Then it started to pour a few minutes later. My timing was good today! <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Tue, 2 Aug 2016 14:22:36 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6210480 It's Monday...and August 1. The public school started today. Granddaughter is in the 3rd grade; our grandson starts kindergarten. We will have only one going to the CDC on base...our little granddaughter who is 3 years of age. <BR> <BR> Have a great sparking day! Mon, 1 Aug 2016 16:11:17 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6210018 It's Sunday....mostly sunny but a few scattered showers. It's our house cleaning day. Going to tackle that now. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Sun, 31 Jul 2016 22:31:29 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6209534 It's Saturday, laundry day. Had a late start so the towels are in the dryer. The rest of the clothes are dry. We went to Subway to use our "buy one 6" and get a 6" for free with a purchase of a fountain drink." We got our veggie patty sandwiches and drink. I also gave away four $1 off a footlong coupons that I had and didn't plan to use. Coupons expire tomorrow, so I saved 4 people $1 each. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Sun, 31 Jul 2016 01:12:42 EST Missed a day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6208799 Well it looks like I missed a day yesterday. Daughter took vacation, so I went shopping after work. Went to the library briefly (just under the wire before closing). <BR> <BR> Glad today's Friday! Happy sparking everyone! Fri, 29 Jul 2016 14:25:01 EST Hump day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6207700 Yay, it's hump day. Tonight we are attending a KIUC (our electric cooperative) meeting. They will be giving light bulbs, bags of rice, and chili and rice to the first 350 attendees. We are going after exercise to get our goodies...and of course, to listen to what KIUC is up to. <BR> <BR> Have a great sparking day! Wed, 27 Jul 2016 14:48:24 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6207079 Hubby has a dental appointment in Lihue today, so we have a lunch date. Not sure if our granddaughter will be with us. She was supposed to stay with hubby, but who knows? <BR> <BR> Have a great sparking day! Tue, 26 Jul 2016 14:11:37 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6206525 Yay, it's a new week. We have a new permanent employee starting today. It's been six months with a temporary person (who could do everything except for a pcard), so it's great to have someone who can do all the tasks needed for the division. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Mon, 25 Jul 2016 15:53:28 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6206049 It's a muggy Sunday. Tropical Storm headed our way. Hopefully it won't be too bad. House cleaning today. Starting to rain... <BR> <BR> Happy sparking everyone! Sun, 24 Jul 2016 21:18:26 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6205637 We went to Lihue to get hubby's car serviced. Then headed to a hurricane preparedness workshop at the armory. Grands came over for a little bit and we picked some tangelo off our tree. Now to head to the post office to check the mail and then have dinner. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Sun, 24 Jul 2016 01:35:33 EST Last night http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6204958 Hubby and I attended the CDC (Child Development Center) graduation for Pre-K students. Our grandson was one of the graduates. It was a nice program to see what they learned. There were 8 graduates, and 3 of them going to Eleele School with our grandson. After the program, there was a dinner at Shenanigans. We got the pizza and pasta buffet. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking! Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:48:35 EST CDC graduation http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6204444 It's library night and our grandson's graduation from the Child Development Center (CDC). I'll make a quick stop at the library first before heading home. Hubby and I will then go to the graduation. Grandson starts kindergarten in August. <BR> <BR> Happy sparking!

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 19:33:36 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6203293 It's Tuesday. Things are quiet here. I am attending a distance learning session this afternoon. I've never taken a distance course so it should be an interesting experience. <BR> <BR> Have a great day! Tue, 19 Jul 2016 16:29:01 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6202828 It's a quiet Monday. Not many interruptions, which is very nice.

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 21:32:48 EST Great news http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6202154 Yipee...I'm so happy. I had jury summons and needed to call about the case on Friday after 5 pm. What great news it was to have the case settled! Yay. Jury duty is such an interesting activity; however, it takes up much of your time. I would prefer that all of the cases be settled without having to use a jury trial! <BR> <BR> Today is house cleaning day. The usual Sunday activity. Yesterday our son and his family came over. My computer was acting up, but of course, it didn't act up when our ... Sun, 17 Jul 2016 19:49:17 EST Not the usual Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6201769 Today I slept in and had a good rest! We had breakfast and then headed to the library to get our free book! Then headed on to the post office, then the grand opening of a new restaurant in Hanapepe called Japanese Grandma's Kitchen. Food is good but a little expensive, but not too much variety. We can substitute because we are not meat eaters nor shrimp eaters so our limitation was veggie tempura. We ordered take out and they forgot to include the rice and salad. I called them and they delive... Sun, 17 Jul 2016 01:14:03 EST TGIF http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6201084 It's Friday...at last. It's been a long week, but it was nice to be at work.

Wed, 13 Jul 2016 15:20:56 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6199329 It's Tuesday. I think it will be a nice quiet day. So far, it's been a good day. Nothing exciting happening here. <BR> <BR> Everyone, have a great sparking day! Tue, 12 Jul 2016 15:36:20 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6198686 It's Monday. The janitorial staff are waxing our restrooms in the building, both upstairs and down. It will take a whole week! We need to go to another building....oh well. <BR> <BR> Have a great day!
