Well, it decided to rain today for like the first time all winter long....( yep, my luck as always ) . Apparently we have 3 "cold" fronts moving through the islands over the next few days. ( FYI-it was 81 degrees and muggy so I'm a little confused by the term"cold" at the moment ) Anyway, not only did we have some periods of heavy rain but the Kona Winds were making a total mess out of everything.....I saw one lone Kite Surfer cruising off Pahaku Beach this afternoon so at lease someone had an idea of what to do with their time ( I, however did not )
I started my morning with a random Beet Juice
2 local Oranges
2 stalks of celery
pretty good but I wish I had some ginger on hand....
2 hours later when Carlos woke up we headed to Hawaiian Village Coffee so he could get his Kona fix and I decided it was a good day for a Bagel and Cream Cheese
After "Brunch" it cleared up for a bit so Carlos convinced me to play another round of "Frisbee Golf" with him in Kapalua...
Let me just say this.... when you live in Hawaii and you're broke and TVless, you've got to get really creative when the weather goes to shit. Anyway, The Maui Zen Day Spa sounded pretty freaking fabulous by 2 pm ( ummm not that I went ).
So, Carlos left for work and I decided to make myself useful and go on a much needed shopping trip. I actually ended up going to 4 different stores because certain places have better prices on certain products. Get my drift?

Alright now...I'm thinking a movie for this evening however I can't decide between Gael Garcia Bernal and Vintage Harrison Ford......It's sort of stressing me out actually. Anyway.....
