New year’s eve: Today the church here met at the home of one of the members. We didn’t know the time and didn’t want to intrude, so we went to the beach and communed with God in all His handiwork. We went to three beaches and saw whales at 2 of them! At the third we saw schools of yellow fish right from the side, so we didn’t even have to get wet to ‘snorkel.’ At the 3rd I could also pick up a tower on the cell phone. I was so excited I called Gretta, and only got to leave her a message. Then I called our friend Joan, who is checking our mail at home and forwarding it to us. She doesn’t have email, so I can only be in touch with her by phone or snail mail. She was excited to get to whale watch with us over the phone! Then, can you believe it? My phone battery ran down! UGH! I didn’t need to talk to anyone, and at least I know how far I’ve got to go to us the phone, now.
I sent Trish pictures to put onto the blog. I have lots more pictures, but I don’t want to put too many onto the blog because the pictures make it so slow to load if people are using dial up. If you want to see more pictures, send me an email and I’ll send more pictures. I don’t mean to be hoarding them, but I remember when we had dial up services how cantankerous my computer got when I had a bunch of pictures to download.
Today we ate both breakfast and lunch on the lanai; that is so nice. We filled the bird feeder, so we’re enjoying fun birds, out there, too.
Today, I’m catching up on laundry. All those clothes I wore in Tijuana need to be washed and buried deep in my suitcase. Hawaii weather is wonderful! No long jeans until we go to the volcano and sleeveless tops. It’s watering day on the west side of the house, too. Remember, I love you all.
