When the cook is sick and you have no rice

My husband who is the main cook of our family has been sick since New Years Eve with the stomach flu. This means that our girls and I have had to do the cooking. I’ve been down with Vertigo since the day before Christmas Eve which means we haven’t gone shopping since before then. Well the rice cookers (our girls) failed to tell us that the rice was almost gone. Now if you live in Hawaii the starch must haves are either (/or/and)rice and poi. Auwe! (Ah shucks)
What to do now? Got potatoes? Yes! Okay, we can have hash browns with our corned beef with onions and eggs! Ah, life is good!

Frosted Windows

The picture from a frosted window looks pretty, but it’s not a true picture. It’s when you step to the other side of that frosted window do you see the true beauty that’s out there.

Happy New Year 2018

Happy New Year 2018!

Today is the official start of my blog.
I look forward to the start of this journey as I see what paths it will lead me down!

Goal for the year?
I got a couple how about you?

Another of my goals is to be able to connect with people worldwide! It’s a modern take on pen paling without having to write every letter individually and buy stamps (which have gone up tremendously)since I started pen paling along time ago.

May you all have a happy, healthy, and prosperous year! (This Year is the Year of the dog).



Sometimes we have to look at things from a different perspective to see an unexpected picture.




  • I have been diagnosed with Meniere’s. Most days I can go without taking the medication, but not today.  Carry on, carry on, carry on, . . .

My Gardening Journey

It All Began in 2016

I started a garden because of the high cost of fresh vegetables (and because our oldest daughter wanted cucumbers).

Start up costs

If you are resourceful it will cost you less than a $150.00 to build your green house and hydroponic beds, buy the seeds, fertilizes, and dirt.


Fresh veggies right outside your back/side door, connecting with nature (plants love to listen to Hawaiian music and you talking to them), quiet time to de stress (unless there is something eating, or making them sick), and lovely flowers to adorn yourself or home with,just to name a few benefits.

This is just a test

I have done it Igor, I’ve created a blog! Ahhh haaa haaa haaa!
