Every conversation is about Olivia. Of course Hurricane Lane was just here, so everyone is awakened.
Took my water coupons to the concierge and stocked enough water to outlast the coming storm.
Purchased enough non perishables.....
The balcony chairs and table are inside, moved by staff, just to be safe.
So, I’m thinking my departed husband’s favorite month to visit has to do with surfing because the storm waves are good and the surfers were plentiful at Waikiki. I am going back to reserving his birthday in October, days are shorter, perhaps less thrilling in their nature, but I find them pleasant enough.
Another thing, what were all those children doing on the plane? They should be in school! Parents don’t know how undisciplined their children are until they travel with them, and then it’s too late to try, on a six hour flight. Hope it’s a September thing that doesn’t creep into October.
I walked the beach, rested on the sand, watched the waves, the surfers, paused at the spectacular flowers and trees....took it all in yesterday: sunny and warm, knew the storm was coming. So today, all gray and windy, doesn’t bother me that much.
What goes around, comes around.

My brother comes to Idaho from Vermont for hunting season in October. His eyes twinkle at the game he spots here as opposed to what is rarely seen in Vermont. A couple years ago he circled Alaska before stopping here on the way home. Overwhelmed by Alaska, though he had been there to visit in-laws before, he was pretty much done with hunting, so it was story time with folks here. The women in my family carry guns to the hunt, not pots to cook with, and since I grew up in the city......the invitation to go with them......is always declined. Gathering wood, open fire, no dishwasher....no thank you. There are women who take pleasure in that, but I have never been one of them. Bad enough that I can cook in a kitchen with all the amenities. Anyway, my preference is a memorial for my husband the week of his birthday in October which is what I am going back to after the storms of September in Hawaii this year. Except next year because my daughter has children in school and baseball, football practice allows only two weeks in July. Every two years the family gathers in Hawaii because none of them wants to visit Idaho, having moved to the winds from it after college graduation. Timeshares may be bad investments, but if used as we do, they have paid for themselves.
