It is hard to believe that it was just a week and a half ago that we were in Kauai. The days pass so quickly, reminds me we need to savor each moment. On the last day, hubby and I drove to the old Pier near the airport. As many times as we've been to this island, we never had ventured here.
There were some locals fishing-it reminded me of what it must have been like decades ago.

I do love visiting this island, but I love being home. I had such fun with the granddaughters sewing this week and watching a movie with two grandsons-it warms my heart.
 The weekend was pretty relaxing~I took my neighbor to a local store that is only open two weekends per month. They have all sorts of accessories and the prices are so cheap.  I bought a necklace and earring set that was marked $11.95, but because I brought a friend, I got five dollars off.  Hubby and I went and toured a new vet clinic that is about 1 mile away from our house.  We were very impressed with the state of the art technology they have; they are big proponents of getting your dogs teeth cleaned annually.  I didn't ask what a new client work up would be, but I'm sure it will be pricey.  Hunter is fine where we go, it is just a bit of a drive now. 
Yesterday I had a pretty relaxed day; hubby had to work and so I've was on the computer, took Hunter for a walk, took a nap-but didn't really sleep, watched the 49'er game and worked on my quilting. 
Today I will see my doctor and see what he suggests about my blood pressure.  I am happy to announce that it has been going down slowly, but is still higher than normal.  Since we will be heading to Leadville this week, I don't want any issues with it, due to altitude.
I hope you had a great weekend and are sensing the changing of the seasons.
Noreen & Hunter


  1. Very fall-like here ... it was in the low 50's when I got up this morning.

  2. Sounds like you had a lovely weekend and the necklace and earrings were a bargain. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. I am like you. I love to go visit different places, but I love home the best!!!!
    I had a very relaxing weekend too. It was much needed!
    Hugs to you Noreen. Have a good week!

  4. What a beautiful place. Mom never went there either.

  5. How nice that you were in in the beautiful place. I always know how nice it is to see places but how nice to get home. I hope you get your blood pressure under control. Have a lovely week.

  6. Praying for you Noreen.....To answer your question on my blog, we did watch Holy Ghost. To be honest I did not like it as much as the others Ihave seen by this director. We did not like the neavy metal "Jesus" music...never have liked that. I wanted MORE Holy Spirit understanding I think. Todd White was it in again. Last night he spoke at the Sunday evening service at Bethel and he was so powerful!! He gave to testimonies and that alone I got more from than the movie. Just my opinion though :).

  7. There is no place like home!

  8. As always, beautiful photos from the Islands. Hope all works out with your BP. I was concerned when we went on our trip because the elevation in Bridgeport is 6500 with passes over 8000, but I took my meds and did okay. I was short of breath a few times, just can't over do it anymore :( Have a super week! Blessings, Cindy

  9. Your pictures of Kauai are amazing! So glad to hear you had a wonderful time. Hope your bp issues get resolved. Hugs to you and Hunter!
