Aloha


We arrived at our cottage on Kauai yesterday afternoon, and I'm still marveling about how all of the windows are open, were open all night long. It's the most pleasant temperature inside and out. Did I tell you that the shower is outside? Along with a bathtub? Can you guess what I plan to do after writing this post?

Since the windows were open all night, it was also pretty noisy in here, what with the palms blowing in the wind, the periodic rain showers and the crickets (or the cricket-like creatures) followed by the myriad of birds early this morning (including more than a few crowing roosters).

Michael slept through the beautiful racket, but not me. I was busy adding my own sounds to the chorus: coughing and nose blowing. I never mentioned in my last post that as soon as we left the wedding I came down with a cold. Seriously, it hit me the second we left Habit, and Michael ended up buying me cold medication in the middle of the night (he's got the in sickness part down). I'm feeling better than that first night, and you know what? I don't really mind being sick in Hawaii.

E: Sorry to hear you're feeling sniffly, but I'm not too inclined to be sympathetic given you're languishing about in a tropical paradise!

It sucks that you are sick! But you are right about one thing, being sick in a lovely place isn't so bad. I was really sick for 3 days when I first got to Australia, but it was not totally horrible, because I was in Australia!

The nice thing is you're probably always within arm's reach of some delicious tropical juices! Drink 'em up. Plus all that Vitamin D!

I don't know if you opened your gifts before you left, but I should have made a point to tell you that some of ours was edible! Whoops. Hopefully you did and you ate what was there. If not, I will remedy the situation in the future.

I hope you feel better soon.

Those weren't crickets chirping, they were geckos! So cute! Also, I forgot to mention the bleating goats. It is loud in the greatest way around here.

Brie! We love the (famous) cookies! They kept us going during our flights, and we still have a couple left. I'll write further praise of your treats in an upcoming email...

Wow! Looks amazing!

Check your cups for geckos before you pour hot stuff in. I speak from my Singapore sis's experience.

Get well soon and have a great time!

Blogging on your honeymoon is hardcore. I will have to allow Kelly to do the same.

I've got a new computer, WiFi in my cottage and nothing but time. This holiday was made for blogging.
