A belated HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!
Was just reminded I missed sending out hugs to one and all. And yet it’s never too late for…
To update you on our Valentine Day’s weekend…
The power surge during the storm killed our TV. So in the afternoon, under sunny skies…you know our Hawaiian weather, bad one minute, glorious the next…we went to Best Buy to get a new one. Stopped by W&M Burger in Kaimuki on the way home. It took me a while but I managed to eat a Royal Burger. Do you remember that place? [Hugmamma here: No, I don’t, but you’re making me “ono” for one…with all the fixins’!]
We watched Maleficent later that night and I loved it! I especially liked the idea that “true love” exists between a child and a parent. I realize Maleficent wasn’t Aurora’s mother…but she acted as though she was because of how she doted on Aurora.
Didn’t do anything special for Valentine’s Day. Just had take out from Zippy’s. Ate something from the fridge instead.
Sunday afternoon friends from our son’s soccer team stopped by with dinner. They visited for a while which was really nice. After they left we heated up the food they brought for us…squash soup…chicken/eggplant stir fry…Chinese style veggies and long rice. All yummy!
That night we packed up a futon and blankets and went to Sandy Beach.
Sat in the back of Brad’s truck.
I drank hot chocolate; he had coffee.
We looked up at the heavens…and watched the stars.
Lots of shore fishermen were out that night.
After the storm the previous day, Sunday was calm and clear.
On Monday we met Brad’s friends for a picnic and some shore line fishing.
Brad caught one Oio. That was about it. He gave it to a family fishing a little ways down from where we were.
His friends brought tons of food. The aromas coming from food cooking on the hibachi smelled so good! I made sure to bring something I could eat…including leftover squash soup.
Later when we arrived home…WOW!!!…we found a cooler full of food in our garage. Thanks to Brad’s sister.
Today, Tuesday, I was back at work. Boy! Was my in-tray full!
Didn’t have to cook dinner tonight since we still had a bunch of leftovers.
Checked my blood test results. Everything still looks good. And if I’m reading my numbers right, some of them may have gone up.
Tomorrow is the first day of the second cycle of my chemotherapy treatment.
Oh! And they changed my meds from capsules to tablets which melt more easily in water. No more trying to swallow the gummy, outer coating of the capsules. Yuck! Should be lots quicker to take. Won’t taste better, but at least I won’t be in the bathroom for half-an-hour.
That’s it for now. Until next time…
…love to you, your family…
…and all my well-wishers!
