Welcome to Brad's online memory archives.

Light Lunch

I don’t know what to eat for lunch at school anymore. I’ve been eating sandwiches. I liked that they were quick to make and quick to eat. But I’m tired of them. We have a snack time, and I’ve always brought peanuts for that. Yesterday I just ate more peanuts for lunch.

After school I was really low on energy though. And hungry. I was craving sushi, so I went to the conveyor belt sushi place – Genki Sushi. It’s not the fanciest sushi place, but I like it. I had a lot of salmon sushi, then some stuffed mushroom caps, then some more salmon. I was full when I was done.

    So fancy! That looks like a fun meal and the conveyor belt sounds fascinating! Deborah was telling me that she brought sushi for her parents (the cooked kind).

    I am sorry for your lunch situation. If I had to take my own lunch it would be a similar problem. No one wants to make food. Bleh. Maybe you can convince the sushi people to open a restaurant across the street from school. 🙂

    I recommend beef sticks and cheese sticks. Cheese sticks of whatever kind, though I like Colby Jack, and I highly recommend Old Wisconsin brand beef sticks. delivers them right to your door…or maybe not your Maui door…

Loving Lessons

Yesterday was a grading day, as usual. But not as usual, the grading didn’t take much time at all, because last week was a short week. Yay!

I stayed at school after grading, and did some lesson planning and other assorted paperwork and computer work. I really enjoy writing lessons. I’ve invented and adapted a lot of stuff for Religion and Language Arts, and have whole curriculums now. It’s nice to be older – I’ve had a lot of years to develop this stuff.

I got home with plenty of daylight to spare. I spent a little time out on my lanai. It’s cooler these days – only getting into the seventies during the day. Nice!

My hibiscus plants are blooming. Both are orange. One of them is solid orange with big flowers. The other one looks like this:

Decoration Day

I put up my Christmas decorations! Yay!

There are only a couple of things I do – I hang some icicle lights outside, and I put up a tiny tree.

The tree is easy, because I just put it away fully decorated. I did have to clean off the counter top though:

The icicle lights are easy too, because there are permanent nails I just hang them from. But they weren’t easy this year, because my shelving outside had gotten messy, and leaves and dirt had gathered underneath, making access to the plug difficult. So I cleaned up and re-arranged my shelves first:

Then I hung the lights:

The wires are white so they look snow-like. The lights are blue because I just like that color.

Rug and Board

I went shopping yesterday. Mostly I like going out on Black Friday because it feels so festive. All the people looking at all the stuff feels like a party to me. This time didn’t seem to have as many people as past years, but maybe it was just my timing. I was out early, but not super-early, so maybe I missed the first rush.

I did have a goal. I needed to get some bolts. I got a headboard from someone on Craigslist, and needed the bolts to attach it.

I started painting my bedroom a year ago, and haven’t finished because I wanted a headboard to protect the newly-painted wall from dirt. I got the bolts. Here are the before and after shots of the headboard:

I also wanted to get a rug for my bedroom. Since I was in a buying mood, I got it yesterday. I like it. It makes the bedroom feel more cozy.

I didn’t get to the painting though. Maybe today? We’ll see…

Wishy Washy

Yesterday I mostly stayed home, but I plan to go out to the stores today. I don’t really have anything specific in mind, but one thing I know I won’t be getting is a bigger washer and dryer.

There was one on clearance at Lowe’s, and I agonized over the decision to get it or not. It was half price because it had a huge dent in the front of it. It also had a higher capacity.

But it is 30 inches deep instead of 27 inches. That won’t fit in my bathroom (my laundry spot) without some major retrofitting. On top of that, clearance items aren’t eligible for delivery or installation. How would I lift it up the stairs to my house and get the old machine out?

I decided the time and hassle was not worth the savings.

Maybe I’ll see something today though… Happy Black Friday!
