Evening Concert

One of my former students was having a recital last night. It was a last performance before he goes off to college. He played violin and flute. It was beautiful, and so fun to listen to. I’m glad I went.

My picture was before the concert.

It was also fun because of the venue – the Wailuku Union Church. It’s one of the oldest churches on Maui. I’ve often been curious of the place when I’ve driven past. And now I’ve been inside! Nice!

It was getting dark by the time I left.

    Look at you – going out on a Saturday! That goes against our couch-loving natures, but I am proud of you. :). I bet the concert was lovely!

    I’ve wondered about how to see inside buildings that I’m curious about. Can I just ask to look around?

A Little Bit

Yesterday was Hawaii Statehood Day – that is, the anniversary of Hawaii becoming a state. We didn’t have school. Woo hoo!

I had big plans to go to school and get paperwork done, or maybe go out and have an adventure. Instead, I slept a lot and watched tv. By afternoon, I did feel a little guilty, so I went to get some potting mix for my hibiscus plant.

When I got home, I got a little more active and did a few small things. One thing I’ve been meaning to do for a while is use some bug spray in my condo. We get visited by an exterminator twice a year as part of our condo fees, but I’ve been seeing too many bugs lately. I got some over-the-counter spray that has been sitting in my cabinet for a while. Yesterday I used it.

I wanted to keep Gus away from it until it was dry, so I blocked the way to the kitchen. He stayed out. Hopefully the bugs will stay out too.

Plants and Birds and Gus

Since the contractor isn’t coming to work on my lanai until Monday, I decided to take my plants outside again. Since the plants were back outside, I also put some birdseed out there. Since the birdseed was out there, the birds came.

This pigeon immediately ate all the sunflower seeds - whole, without breaking the shells open!

Since the birds came, Gus was watching them.

He looks like he might charge at them, but he never does.

Suggested Purchase

When I ordered the new switch for my dryer, Amazon suggested something else at the bottom of the page – a new lint trap.

The lint trap is inside the back of the dryer.

Its the thing with finger holes.

My old lint trap was kind of beat up, and came open too easily. I decided I would get a new one. It was a good decision. The new one is sturdy and snaps into place firmly. I like it.

They really are identical.

A Dark Wait

To prepare for my lanai being worked on, I brought all my plants inside. I could have put them on the balcony by my front door, but I thought they might be in the way if the contractors wanted to bring things in or out.

I put some of the smaller plants in my living room, but all the big plants are in my spare bedroom.

Now that the contractor won’t start until a week later, I think I need to move the plants back out again. Besides the dark wait until this Monday for the work to start, they will wait until the work finishes… that could be several more days. I think they need their sun.
