WELL, NOW!

It's pretty amazing here in Maui.

Beth and David arrive around midnight tonight.  I've known this for months.  So I saved up all the cleaning and laundry for today!  PROCRASTINATION at it's best.


Yes, I have a bi-weekly cleaning crew but of course they came LAST Friday.  So the cleaning is not as bad as it could be.  (Thank you Mr. Ralph for this luxury).  The guest room sheets are clean and the bed is made, I even found a blanket and set up a luggage rack!

It's a good feeling to have ALL the laundry done (including beach towels!)  And everything is hanging in my closet.  I've got my typical Maui sweats (matching cotton capris and short sleeve shirts) ready to hang out at home or the beach.  I've ironed all my "fancy" clothes in case we do something that requires that kind of look (trust me ... not fancy ... collars on my shirts or blouses over tank tops!)  It's a good feeling!


I have to run the dishwasher when I head to bed tonight.  Cold brew coffee is "brewing" on the counter top.  As soon as I finish this tiny blog, I'm heading to the store to get a few breakfast items.  Beth and David will be on Portland time, which is two hours ahead of Maui.  They may head out to snorkel before I get up, so will have a few things they can grab and go.

Of course, all along the way to get this stuff completed ... I took myself out for coffee (had to buy beans for the cold brew ... it's a different grind).  Then checked Facebook and answered a few emails.  Stopped to have my Cheerios with banana and almond milk.  Made my body scrub (coconut oil and sugar with a few drops of lavender).  



Finished off the day with a trip to Safeway, got myself a little frozen pizza and some red wine!  

Banana for tomorrow!

  1. Have fun with your company. I'm sad that Honey had to go back sooner than expected.

    1. Thanks. It was a really difficult decision for sure. And right after I dropped her off, I opened a box my kids sent ... filled with toys and treats for her.

      My guests just texted their plane is DELAYED three hours!! The car rental place closes before they get there but the airline will pay for a taxi (the pilot called in sick!) Ah! The glamour of travel!!

  2. I am selfish and just couldn't allow company if I had to send my cats out! This is my cats home too. Oh well--I don't have that worry. No one would ever want to come visit here. LOL

    1. There's a BIG difference here. You already have your pets ... anyone coming to visit you KNOWS that before they come.

      I did not have any animals here in Maui. So they made their plane reservations and car reservations and other island hops ... and THEN learned I had taken in a foster dog.

      Totally not their fault at all.

  3. You always have such a good time with Beth and David. As I recall, they love to cook - such healthy meals? Great all round. Have fun!
