Our Big Island Adventure: Part II

On day three, we were up with the chickens and ready for some exploration!  We said goodbye to Hilo and made our way south to the Puna District.   Our first stop was the Lava Tree State Park.  We almost missed it, for this little, wooden sign was the only marker at the entrance.

A Little Heat!

  Danger! Weekly Photo Challenge

I am not a risk taker.  I prefer to keep my feet firmly planted on Mother Earth.  When I contemplate the Weekly Photo Challenge topic DANGER, two thoughts come to mind…

  • Pumpkin, our deadly barn cat
  • A live volcano, pouring hot lava into the ocean, on the Big Island of Hawaii

Although it is an extremely difficult decision, I think I will start with the lessor of the two evils: The Volcano! (Watch for an upcoming post about the killer cat!) Continue reading “A Little Heat!”

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.

The Exquisite Eggshell

If you have been reading my blog for a while now, you have come to the realization that I have a slight passion for chickens and ducks. The term addiction seems a bit strong, so let’s go with slight passion instead! Keep in mind, I love everything about my feathered friends, including the fact that they serve an amazing purpose…eggs! Eggs are not only a great source of protein, but they’re full of vitamins and minerals. What’s even better…they taste amazing! Once you have tried a farm fresh egg, you will never go back!

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…”

Spread Kindness

A weekend filled with kindness…

My Perspective…

Last Fall, Wifey and I spent the weekend in Indianapolis.  Keep in mind, we love to travel, but finding healthy and fresh meal options can be extremely difficult. Fortunately, we discovered a wonderful little farm to table restaurant, called Napolese Pizzeria. It was bustling and quaint, all at the same time. Continue reading “Spread Kindness”
