Where I’ve been and where I’m going

It’s been a whirlwind week.

I visited a friend on Kauai and enjoyed the lush, green scenery. So many wonderful waterfalls!

We ate, we pinned (mutual Pinterest junkies), we worked, and we played.

She did jagua (a body art dye made from the South American Genipa plant -- lasts 1-2 weeks) and I did henna (from the Middle Eastern henna plants, stains the skin and lasts 1-2 weeks)

I got home Sunday, and today I finished my muumuu…

I made this muumuu in sewing class!

And tomorrow I fly back to the mainland for 8 intense days.  I have a day in San Diego, then Hubby and I will fly to New York on Thursday.  We pick up Java from the pet hospital on Friday, and the fly back to San Diego with both cats on Monday.  The cats will stay in San Diego and we will return to Honolulu for the final 4 weeks of sabbatical on April 2.

I will try to post from the road, but given that I’m leaving the laptop in Honolulu and I find the iPad an awkward tool for blogging, there may or may not be many posts.

I leave you with a view of Anini Beach on Kauai… amazing to find a secluded beach on such a crowded island! It was so beautiful and peaceful that I could have stayed there for days.

      I hear you about overcast weather! The two days I spent in San Diego (1 on the way to New York and one on the way back from New York), it was raining! But since the lawn is still dead, I’m assuming it didn’t rain too much…

    I love to look at your beautiful pictures of Hawaii! I can almost feel the breeze and the sea air! Love that muuumu! Can’t be in Hawaii without a one and not to mention a Hawaiian print shirt!

    Hope all goes well with the cats. You are one busy body!
