Ways to open up a dead blog.

I haven't felt like writing a blog in a long time. I guess life is consumed with other things and you get busy and just forget you have a blog. Well I can promise you from time to time I do come back here and read some of my older posts. Just waiting for that inspiring moment to restart my dead blog. I have been reading a lot lately rather than spending time on the internet. Facebook just seems to drive me crazy and I am super annoyed now that every post is about some "like" or "dislike" or "check out this article" or "look at this website". There is no substance to people's lives on facebook anymore, nothing really about their lives just interests and really I was on facebook to connect with people, not to read and debate things. I was more interested in seeing pictures of what was going on in their lives and what was really happening in their lives. (keeping in touch you could say).
Anyways I promise I will be back with more to say, but for now just hold tight and there are things to come.

an afternoon of baking....

 On the left we have cake batter fudge and on the right we have rice krispy squares. Delicious hopefully! I had found the cake batter fudge on pinterest and wanted to try it out. And rice krispy squares are just always good to make.
A macaroni shaped marshmellow we found in the bag.. it was delicious to eat.

another hawaiian adventure....

we stopped at the dole plantation, it was a little disappointing, there were no pineapple in the bushes to look at.

welcome to haleiwa, a small surf town on the north shore, it was a pretty tiny town, but really neat to explore.

The Vans triple crown is going on right now in Haliewa, but unfortunately today the waves were only like 1 to 3 feet tall, so no competition today, or at all this week according to a guy who was walking there.

Standings so far, not much competition left until the finals....

small back road adventure we went on that took us into the middle of nowhere, but we explored the town completely.

Cool looking surf shop

Rules for visiting the sea turtles on the beach...unfortunately too many people did not follow the rules it seemed.

A sea turtle up on the beach just relaxing in the sand.
The red rope is the boundry you have to stay out of. The lady on the right side had a book that she was trying to find out what kind of sea turtle it was, as there are a large variety of sea turtles.

mmmm mcdonalds outside the polynesian was an alright lunch stop.

no trip is complete without a stop at this beautiful park across from kualoa ranch. very picture perfect.

and the stories continue

#4- Life in a snowbound cabin
It's day 250 stuck in this cabin. I think the walls are starting to close in. It's very white outside, I haven't seen outside in over a week. I am almost out canned food. The water well is frozen over. At least my food in the ice chest is staying cold. I have fashioned a hunting bow out of a stick and some string I found. I am using my knife blade to make the arrows sharp. I am planning on going hunting for a deer or maybe a moose. I need some meat to eat and the fur will make me a nice coat and maybe a blanket too. It's very cold in this cabin too. I need to go venture out and get some firewood as well. I have a little stack left but need to dry out some more wood. I wish I had a telephone, I would call someone, being stuck in this cabin by myself is kind of boring. I keep winning at chess. Murphy my dog isn't much company, he's pretty lazy and naps all the time. I will find a way out one day, a way off of this mountain and find civilization again. If it ever stops snowing.

#5- Write a letter to your landlord.
Dear Landlord,
 I am the tennant in apartment 76. I wanted to write to you so you would address some issues. First there is a strange odor coming from across the hall, from apartment 79.  It smells like stinky old socks and it is quite strong. I haven't seen the little old lady come out of there in a few days. I knocked, but she did not answer. So I believe she is not home, but I would like you to please address the odor. Everytime I walk by her apartment, it just wafts out from under the door. Secondly, the garbage room is over filled, I think the garbage men are on strike but that doesn't mean you can't take care of it. It's quite gross, all the old pizza boxes and bag upon bag of garbage. It's time to invest in a new system of disposing of garbage. Maybe relocating the garbage room. Thirdly, The little boy who lives in apartment 12 was trying to sell chocolates door to door. After closer inspection I discovered these are not at all chocolates, but I believe they come from the resident cat you have living in the foyer downstairs. Could you please get rid of that cat so the little boy stops profiting from his "chocolate" sales. And lastly, there is a man living in the laundry room, I don't believe he is paying rent and he is kind of creepy looking. He keeps asking if I have anything that he can sell and for some reason many residents are complaining that clothes and laundry soap are disappearing. Could you please kindly evict him since I believe he isn't paying rent.
Sincerley, the tennant in apartment 76
