Early morning beauty… (And some happy, tasty eats)

One more day and I can officially say “TGIF!!” Since yesterday was a state holiday, there was a mid-week break, which sort of made the week fly by. I’m getting back on track with morning runs. Here’s what it looks like at 5 am when I start out: By the end of the run it […]

Ch -ch-ch-chia!

For quite some time now, I’ve heard of the wonders of chia seeds. It’s been tempting to try them but every time I start to venture in that direction I chicken out. Having survived intestinal blockages, it sometimes freaks me out to think of intentionally ingesting anything that is said to “slow digestion down”. That […]

Hiking Puu Oo Trail

This morning we met up with some buds and headed out for a hike off of Saddle Road. It was a great way to spend the morning. Talk about beautiful !! Life is good! All in all, it was a short hike (about 3 miles). For the record,Hawea is making good on her Valentine’s day […]

Sunday Tea

These are things only really understood by those of us who have been there. Thankfully I’m not afraid of eating anymore – like she describes in this post. For sure, I developed a complicated psychological relationship with food, and it feels like only now, I’m beginning to find some peace and balance. Maybe I’ll expand […]

Check out this two-tone juice!

It’s been a tasty couple of days around here. The green juice revival continues! This was a breakfast of the “Mean Green”, and a banana with peanut butter. Aren’t the kid-friendly dishes great?

Or is there just some message I’m meant to hear right now ? Maybe it’s a little of both. Sharing this here reminds me that I meant to […]

Inspired to live and be well.

Man, oh man! We were a house of sick puppies over the weekend. We started with a fun outing at Reed’s Bay, followed by an afternoon visit to the grocery store and dinner at home. I share the water picture because there are no photos of what happened next. In a nutshell, it went like […]

Mung bean noodles?!

Just the other day I was noticing that I eat some weird things these days. Then Vea brought home these mung bean noodles. I kept an open mind and guess what ? They were pretty good! Especially when topped with clams, mussels, shrimp, scallops and a light cream sauce. Is this why my clothes aren’t […]

Early morning running

Who wants in on my little secret? ….. (Pause….. Building suspense …..) ….. I really like running… In the dark! It seemed a little nuts at first but I have come to love the calming reassurance that comes from starting the day beneath the moon and stars. Yesterday, I was surprised to see that the […]

2nd outing: Reed’s Bay

I don’t remember if I shared here that last month a few of us decided to start a monthly hiking group. Our first outing was to Volcano National Park, where we hiked Byron’s Ledge trail. We had so much fun that we decided maybe we should throw a water day into the mix. So today […]
