I spent almost all day yesterday in the ER with Nolemana; they did every test in da book and still we have no answers for what’s troubling him.
Today I had to unexpectedly put my special cat, Makanani to sleep. I’d just gone in to renew a prescription for her and one thing led to another. Her kidneys were failing. But I wasn’t expecting to have to put her down.
It’s been a really rough two days. I’ll continue with the Mystery Road Trip in a few days, no worry.
Oh yeah… I got a huge chip in a front tooth today too.
I think I’ll just go to bed and hide under the covers.
Back on da road again aftah seeing da park and some nearby falls; I was still feeling wai maka cuz of leaving our friends, but excited at da same time about seeing one moa and her ‘ohana. (more…)
Ho, we were so tired da night of Day Four. I think part was having to leave Auntie dem after such a short visit… was really emotional foa me. Den we have one long day on da road and neva wen get to our motel till about 10 p.m. That day, we wen put about 450 miles on da car and about ten hours of driving. Was worth it, but we wen crawl into bed and crash. (more…)
All us ‘ohana had one amazing time talking stories on Sunday night. My cousin and his wife wen fix dis fabulous dinnah foa us, and while we ate we wen talk stories about da ‘ohana, like putting togedda puzzle pieces. My cousin had some info, and I had some info, and was good fun trying foa piece everything togedda. (more…)
K’den, da second part of Day Two. Had dis warning foa falling rock so we were extra careful driving down da road.
Diana over at Otterwise just honored me with the Deborah award.
This award was created by Ces, a fabulous artist. I love what she said about Deborah and her oak:
“Queen Nymph Deborah nurtures the acorn of a Quercus alba (White Oak) with grace, kindness, humility, caring, loyalty, hope, poetry and beauty. White oak, also known as Stave Oak is the most important lumber tree of the white oak group, it is high-grade wood and is outstanding in making tight barrels for whiskey and other liquids and was important for shipbuilding.”
I’m really touched. Mahalo nui, Diana. I especially love the part about shipbuilding because I’ve had a love affair with boats, ships, and sailing ever since my dad first took my brother and I down to Kewalo Basin where he used to work on sailboats. Later on, he’d take my brother and I sailing.
Brings back good memories for me…
Hea we go!
