Yesterday, during their normal flight training exercises, military planes did fly-overs of all the hospitals in Hawaii. They did it to acknowledge the hospital staffs for their work during the pandemic.
The plane that flew over the Maui hospital was a fuel tanker. It came by at about 1:25pm, which is during my students’ independent work time, so I could go outside and see it.
The pictures don’t look like it, but the plane was flying really low. It was loud. It flew past only one time, but it was cool.
I guess I didn’t post about my car accident, because I was worried about legal stuff, but a while ago, I was in an accident and messed up the front of my truck.
Yesterday, I got it fixed! Yay! There is a new bumper and headlights, and a new (used) grill. I forgot to take a before picture, but it was just a big hole in the front. It was pretty ugly. And I was a little worried the hood would just pop up on its own someday.
I was a little unsure of spending money to fix it, but after I got it back, I wasn’t unsure anymore. I am so happy!
There is some wood trim kind of defining the kitchen area in my condo. The previous owner had some hooks hanging from that trim… maybe for lights? plants? Whatever it was, I didn’t care for the hooks, so I took them down. But the hooks were screwed onto screws, which were just sticking out of the wood. Dang.
I had no idea how they were put up there, and I didn’t really know how to get them down. I decided to just grab one of them with a pliers and try to unscrew it. It worked!
I took them all down last night. Next step, fill with wood putty and sand. Then I can paint the wood trim. I want to paint it white.
I always used to wear my socks more than once before washing them, but lately, I’ve extended the wearing time. I’m now going a whole week wearing the same socks. I leave them on the floor next to my dresser, and the next morning, I put them on again.
I have inherited a superpower from my Grandpa Hummel. My feet don’t smell like anything. After I’ve worn the same pair of socks for a week, if you’d sniff them, you’d see they smell like laundry. They look kind of dirty on the bottom because of walking around in them, but they smell like Tide and Bounce – even after a week.
My new wall paint makes it a little darker in my condo at night. I like LOTS of light. When I get home, I turn on ALL the lights. So now, because my walls are no longer white, I want more lights.
I went to Target to check out floor lamps. There was a line to get in the door. Here in Maui, the stores count how many people are inside, and they wait for some to leave before letting more in. They also require everyone to wear masks. I thought everyone was doing that, but now I’m hearing some places aren’t. It’s interesting to hear all the different responses.
Anyway, Target had a floor lamp I kind of liked, but not in the right finish, so I didn’t get one. But then I remembered that when I first moved here, Lauren sent me a bunch of housewarming stuff. One of the things was a little lamp. I set it up when I got home.
