Maui felt calm. The pace is slow even though there are LOTS of walkers and runners along the paths. We walked and walked because we are now wearing pedometers (I've been calling them our bumpers) and shooting for 10,000 steps. The happy part: steps add up quickly. Yay!
We had fun together, lots of fun! Looking at this photo, I'm a little sorry that I cut my own bangs.
Here's a slow little fellow.
This is a very scary sign, right? We are now quite mature in our thinking; We don't like to get all sandy. Jelly fish? No thank you. We were so close to the beach that we could hear it while we swam in the . . . swimming pool. I do like bobbing around in the ocean, but with Bill's hip surgery looming so close, I didn't want him (or his nurse!) to take the chance of going head over heels, at the mercy of the South Pacific waves.
So, no surfing either. As if!
A rainbow! We're home now and the trusty furnace is pushing the temperature away from the 40's, into the high 60's (inside!). Brrrrrr.
Flying through the night makes for a crunchy neck. Bill's outside corralling the one million leaves that fell while we were away.
I am happy, happy, happy to be home. I read a lot of novels during our vacation and I do believe that when you read partially sad stories, even if the characterization is remarkable, you can tend to feel a little burdened. Words are powerful, duh. So, I am going to take a break from brilliant fiction writing and restore my soul with Brambly Hedge and the shoe books (Ballet Shoes, Dancing Shoes, Theatre Shoes, and Skating Shoes).
I have lots of ideas for every-day-blogging! I wrote them in my journal while we were away. I'm feeling a bit fuzzy-headed so I am going to have another cup of coffee and some Halloween candy.
Thank you for coming by and reading. Aloha!
