Maui life is going really well. Everyone here has reached out with an invitation and I have followed up with reciprocation.
Friday night Lisa invited me to the NEW Maui Brewing Company that just opened a few weeks ago and is only about two miles away. We shared a sampler tray of six beers (they have 17 on tap!). I'm not much of a beer drinker but these were good! Then we walked over to a new restaurant and shared three side dishes and a fancy girl drink! She is an event planner and has lived here for at least ten years so it's nice to get the back story on things.
Saturday night I invited Leslie over for a chick flick and healthy girl snacks (of course her dog Mercedes was also included). After so much gabbing, I'm surprised we actually watched a movie! We started with Love Story (remember way back when??) but I decided it was a bit too sad so we switched to a Meryl Streep movie called Prime. Funny, romantic comedy (with a sad ending). I had veggies with ranch dip (made with Greek yogurt), cucumber slices to use as crackers for turkey salad, warm zucchini fritters fresh from the toaster oven, grapes and cheese. Leslie is my dessert person ... she brought apple slices and salty caramel dip. TO DIE FOR! Her hubby works til 11pm so we might just do this pretty often. With or without a movie!!
Sunday morning the South Maui Merry Widows (minus one) met for Breakfast. Everyone looked better than when I left nine months ago, despite one member having some severe dizzy spells that have not yet been diagnosed ... she is not able to drive. Perfect time to bring up my Village concept involvement.
Last night I topped it off at 50% discount night at our local Japanese restaurant with Bob and Paula ... neither of whom eat sushi! She and I shared three side dishes as well as a bowl of miso soup. Just a perfect light dinner.
And you've noticed the common thread? FOOD!!!
It's Monday morning here ... swim aerobics in an hour. Walking the neighborhood twice a day. My goals for this week.
