Day 6: Finding love in the daily grind

Another good day in the books, as close to perfect as it can get! I made another drive to Ka’u: Received some pleasant news: Took in this view while watering B’s thirsty plants: Went for a sunset swim: Strolled under starry skies to dinner with friends (only a few blocks away): Laughed over bottles of […]

Day 5: Lao Tzu on loving deeply

It’s been a busy day. I drove to Ocean View and back. For those of you not from here, that’s a 2 hour commute each way. That was a good bit of time to be alone with my thoughts. Here’s what I found to love along the way: Signing off with a quote that popped […]

I live with the Sauce Boss!

You guys, Hawea made the best BBQ chicken the other night. This picture doesn’t do it justice at all. She used Jack Daniels sauce for the base, and added some of Diane’s homemade lilikoi butter, sriracha sauce, and some agave nectar. The end result can only be described as “sweet heat”. It was so good […]

Day 4: Who loves to save a buck?

Last weekend I wanted to pick up a sugar scrub at Target. The cheapest option was about $4 (right price, weird ingredients). The preferred option with all natural ingredients was about $13. And that’s when inspiration struck! WHY NOT MAKE THIS USING INGREDIENTS I HAVE AT HOME? Sooooo… here we have it: DIY SUGAR SCRUB […]

Day 3: Loving when it’s hard

Today was not a “kumbaya-ponies-n-cupcakes” kind of a day. We have some new security measures at work, causing me to suspect that I’m actually working for an offshoot of the CIA. Simple things that we used to do in 2 steps now require 6 (not kidding), email flow has increased 8-10 fold (still not kidding) […]

Day 2: Big Love for Byron Katie

Yes, yes, yes!! I get to write about LOVE!!!! You have no idea how much this excites me. Many years ago, I worked part time at Prairiewoods Franciscan Spirituality Center while also working at my “real job”. My friends were advancing in their careers (passing bar exams, becoming seasoned teachers, getting promoted to management) and […]

90 Days of Love

Just when I thought I was running out of steam for this blog, inspiration struck. This morning, WordPress sent me a notice that my domain will expire 90 days from today, should I choose not to renew it. That means, in 3 short months, we will be celebrating Thanksgiving again and Hungry Girl Eats will […]

The last Snorkel Day of summer

Happy Friday, everybody! I hope this week was kind to you. It’s going to be a great day in Hilo for Deep and Beyond volunteers and participants. Here’s what it’s all about: A couple of weeks ago I saw this flyer in Starbucks. I emailed for more info and learned that Deep and Beyond is […]

Is there a method to the madness?

As I see it, there are a few different kinds of people in life. I tend to be a “list person”, meaning that I need structure and motivation to get (tedious, unappealing) things done. Being a list person is not the same as being an “order person”. An order person functions best when their environment […]

Focus forward & enjoy the ride!

Helloooooooo! Anybody there? I bet you thought I completely jumped ship, since I haven’t posted in so long. The funny thing is, it’s not for a lack of things to write about. I’ve been busy living life and loving just about every minute of it. The holdup is the fact that this blog always seems […]
