It's been a rather full Tuesday. Here's what I've been up to.
Woke up at 5:30 and got ourselves over to the Open Market. That's Hawaii's term for Farmer's Market. The produce always seems fresher than what we see at the supermarket.
Came home and Art worked on the doors again. He has put up the folding doors for the linen closet and we worked all afternoon yesterday to get the guest bathroom door up. It's still a work in progress. So he tweaked it some more. (We've got about 12 doors that need to be put up.)
We made a special stop at Costco to get gas. It cost around $3.37 everywhere else on the island but was $2.66 at Costco and well worth the trip. I don't know when I saw gas under $3.00. WOW!
We still decided to do all our errands in one trip to Honolulu to conserve gas.
It's another voggy day. We could not even see the Koolau mountain range that is usually crystal clear. The sun was barely able to break through. That volcanic smoke from the Big Island is no fun at all.
We made a quick stop to drop off some lettuce we got for our sister-in-law, Nancy at their apartment. I know she must think I'm crazy when I told her I was blogging this.
And off we were again. We went to Tripler Army Hospital where I dropped off my hemocult slides (you know, poop slides?) and some of my blood. Why they painted a military hospital pink, I have no idea.
Then to the post office. I hope you all know the benefits of the FLAT RATE box. That is a wonderful thing, especially in the islands.
The next stop was lunch with Art's cousins at Gyotaku restaurant in Honolulu. Reminded us of Japan again. Yummm...
Our afternoon had a bright moment when we talked to our daughter and granddaughter on web cam. She's talking now. She says, "Bappa" for Grandpa. But "Um huh" for me. Hmmm... Who, me? Jealous? Nah... I'm still the one she wants to sing Eeensy Weensy Spider.
And the day's not over yet.
