The superglue failing was a risk we took in early March when we fixed our loud/rattling bathroom fan with a drop of superglue. The fan started getting loud again right before we left for Hawaii, so the day after we got home I ordered a replacement motor from Amazon. Replacement motor = $40, replacement fan = $100. Life is much cheaper when you know how to fix things yourself!
We pretty much did nothing on Day 9, and on Day 10 hubby packed [it takes me 10 minutes to pack, it takes hubby about 4 hours] while I went on a 2 hour photo shoot around the hotel grounds.
Day 8. This was our most fantastic adventure yet! We booked an all-day trip with Blue Dolphin Charters to sail on their 65′ catamaran up the Nā Pali Coast, then 17 miles offshore to the Forbidden Island of Ni’ihau to snorkel.
On Day 6 we rented full-face snorkel masks and tried our hand at snorkeling on the south shore. On Day 7 we went back to the Lighthouse Wildlife Sanctuary where we saw Laysan Albatross & more Nene.
On Days 4 & 5 we did a TON! We checked out Wailua Falls, took a ride on the Kauai Plantation Railway and fed wild pigs, visited the Kilauea Lighthouse & Wildlife Sanctuary where we saw lots of Nene, walked out on Hanalei Bay pier, had lunch in Princeville, and visited Manini-holo dry cave & Waikapale wet cave. Phew!
I met hubby in 2011 & and married him in 2012. We decided to take a delayed Honeymoon to the Big Island in 2014 and loved Hawaii so much we’ve decided to retire there [someday]. Which meant we needed to check out the other 3 major islands to see which one we liked best 🙂 This year it was Kauai’s turn.
Poor Franc. He’s had a rough time of it lately. On the 10th his face was visibly swollen. By the morning of Saturday the 11th I was in full freak out mode. But thankfully after 11 days of antibiotics he’s doing so much better! But he lost part of his cheek/lip to an infection/abscess 🙁
This weekend I finished building the boxes which will frame each of our 3 in-wall AC units. Today after work I hung them up, mostly to make sure they fit [!!!] but also to see how they look. I love them! They look so good and the doors aren’t even on yet.
I HATE when I make rookie mistakes. I’m guessing we all do. For the past month I’ve secretly been working behind-the-scenes cutting wood & getting ready to build the 3 wooden box covers for our in-wall AC units.
As of March 6, last time I posted about the bookcase, I’d gotten one side of the shelves done [which took 6 coats of paint], and had started on the bookcase body. A week later the shelves are done [6 coats on each side] but I’m still plodding away on the body.
