Grocery Store Etiquette

I have so enjoyed sharing my Big Island Adventure Series with everyone, but after a little trip this morning, I felt the need to share an entirely different type of adventure…the grocery store!  By doing so, Wifey might be saved from my 50,000 word chatter about this experience, when she arrives home this evening!

Mixed Emotions

As Mother’s Day approaches, I am filled with mixed emotions. Each year, I focus on the beautiful celebration of my three children. I am over the moon excited about the young adults they are becoming. They are beaming with confidence and are blessed with so many gifts. They fill my days with joy and laughter… I can’t imagine a better gift!  Yet, while my heart is filled with love, as this special day approaches, there is a small dark cloud that always lingers, leaving my emotions a bit unsettled… Continue reading “Mixed Emotions”

Kitchen Renovation: Part II

There is a light at the end of the tunnel and I can finally begin to see it!  We are in week four of our kitchen renovation!  Although it has been a bit of a challenge for me to live without my favorite room in the house, I have persevered and survived the insanity!  Be ready for lots of yummy recipes coming your way, once the kitchen is complete! So today, I thought I would share a photo update of the progress from the past few weeks… Continue reading “Kitchen Renovation: Part II”

Chicks and Ducks and Fox, Oh My!

I am passionate about every aspect of Mother Nature.  I feel most alive when I am outside, feeling the cool grass under my bare feet.   I completely understand the complexity of the circle of life, as well as the necessity of a food chain… until it involves our girls. We have a new visitor on the farm and he was NOT invited. Mr. Fox has decide to dine here at Indigo Acres and although he is stunningly beautiful, I am having a difficult time respecting and loving this sly creature.

Lessons From a Sea Turtle

I have always had a passion for sea turtles!  Last October, while visiting the Big Island of Hawaii, I had the most amazing opportunity to view these stunning creatures, up close and personal, on the Punaluu black sand beach.  This breathtaking experience is one I will never forget.  Although my time with them lasted only a few hours, the lessons I learned from them will last an eternity.  We have so much to learn from these magical creatures…  We just have to stop and listen… Continue reading “Lessons From a Sea Turtle”

One of Those Days…

For those of you who have been consistently following my ramblings, you might recall me mentioning having a little health “hiccup” over the past 6 weeks. I’ve been trying to avoid surgery, but unfortunately, it was inevitable.  Last Friday, I had my little OR visit and I’ve been trying to be a good little patient and follow the doctor’s orders. Continue reading “One of Those Days…”

Learn to Ride the Waves…

A few weeks ago, I focused on what to do when life gives you lemons. Most of the time, I choose to make lemonade. But, what about those times when you can’t make lemonade and you don’t have the answers to solve the problem? Then what? These have been my questions over the past week. Yesterday, it came to me.   I was looking through photos, from our anniversary trip to the Big Island last October. There it was… My answer was picture perfect… Continue reading “Learn to Ride the Waves…”

And the Saga Continues…

The Force has been on my side this week!  I survived Week One of the kitchen renovation project. Three weeks and counting…  I can only hope and pray that things remain on schedule. Overall, I think the project is going well. Or, maybe I’m just getting accustom to the fact that one part of the house or another has been in chaos, over the last three years. The exciting news… I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and it will be worth it once everything is finally complete. I have my sights set on June 1. It is always good to plan a little wiggle time! Continue reading “And the Saga Continues…”
