The clock on my laptop screen says Mon 8:58 AM, which is the time back home in Novato, but here in Hawaii, it’s three hours earlier, 5:58 AM, and the sun has yet to rise above the horizon.
Super quick Monday Poll this morning, friend, because El Hub has instructed me to “step away from the computer, NOW!” Today is the last full day of my vacation, and tomorrow I head back to the Bay.
Happy and sad. Happy because I’ve had a great time here on Kauai; sad because I can’t bring the island back home with me to California.
- One thing you’d like to accomplish today?
Does getting pruny skin count as an accomplishment? Because today I’d like to stay in the water long enough to be able to say, “I’m getting pruny.”
Oh, and I’d like a mai tai… I mean, later today. I’d prefer breakfast first.
- Do you like salsa or hot sauce with your eggs?
Mild salsa, yes.
- What’s one beauty product you’ve been using a lot lately?
Becca Beach Lip and Cheek Tint in Watermelon. First, it smells like watermelon, which I love. Second, you can wear it as a blush or a lip stain (or both), and it applies just fine with fingers. Third, a little bit goes a long way. I barely have to use any to get a nice cheek flush.
- Did you take any lessons when you were a kid?
I took piano lessons for … a long time, LOL! Years and years. It was kind of forced upon me, though, and I didn’t really enjoy it at the time. I think I was too young to really appreciate it.
Ah, but one unintended side effect of those lessons was that my typing speed shot through the roof!
- Weekly goals:
I don’t want to think about the rest of the week right now. Today, I only want to think about today, and about enjoying my last day here.
And then later, when I’m back at home, I would like to start planning another trip for late summer/fall, even if it’s just a one-day road trip or a long weekend. Having something to look forward to makes everything better.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Not a lot to report about my day here yesterday (Kauai, Day 4). Just a lot of nothing, which was fine by me.
We did drive out to the south shore of the island to a town called Poipu and a place called Shipwreck Beach, which I’d heard has great snorkeling, but the water was a little too choppy, so we drove back and spent the afternoon reading and
eating playing by the hotel pool.
