Fall Comes to Kauai
The leaves are turning and there is a nip in the air – it is time to get out the warm clothes and… oh wait; never mind, I live on Kauai now. It’s still shorts and Aloha or T-shirts and slippahs 🙂
However it is getting a bit cooler and the breezes are nice. It is still beautiful beach weather and there are still beautiful beaches.
Here is my latest update
The cats – I haven’t written about them lately because they appear to be doing as little as they possibly can. They are getting along fine and have fallen into the Aloha lifestyle. Here are some pics to prove my point.
Projects- Yes the carport bathroom is still ‘almost’ done but we have now plumbed in the drain and water to our little mango-wood sink. It’s really nice to have the sink operational now. We just want to add a mirror and finish the floor. We are still deciding between deck paint and slate tile for the floor. One is easier, the other just looks way cooler.
The yard – The plants are doing well. The pineapples and papayas are growing like crazy and the citrus are growing – albeit a bit slower. We’ve also planted some more colorful plants like hibiscus and plumbago to give the yard a bit more color diversity.
Work – Work is keeping me busier than I thought it would, which is good. It’s always good to have more work than not enough that’s for sure. One of my clients has me traveling back and forth to the mainland regularly. Not ideal but it’s part of the deal and I’m racking up travel points for sure! Barb is doing well at her job though the job can be trying at times. But it is a school job with hormonal kids so you know what that means.
The Band – We have a Halloween gig tomorrow! It’s at a block party in Poipu so I’m looking forward to getting out the electric this time and getting my rock on. The guys tell me that a lot of people show up to this thing so it will be fun to be in front of a crowd again.
Visitors – We are having some friends visiting from the mainland this weekend. It will be nice to get together with them and have a BBQ and a couple of drinks. In November my aunt is coming out to visit during the Thanksgiving holiday, my cousin and her family will be joining her so it will be great to see everyone and do some tour-guiding.
The Neighbors – We have some very cool neighbors who continue to give us fruits and veggies. Check this out.
So, it is all good right now. We are busy, busy, busy but loving the island. There is Art Walk in Hanapepe tonight and we may go – The Right Slice pie company of Kalaheo sells chicken pot pies there that I can never resist…
