Chris and Angela surprised me with some more gifts. Chris must think I'm brainy as she gave me the "mensa" sudoku book. I had to cheat doing the beginning book so I'll be lucky to finish one of these. It will be fun trying. The lace weight yarn no doubt will languish in the stash for awhile until I get up my nerve to tackle another lace project. It is a very tempting color, hmmm. The vintage pin is very dressy and I already got some compliments wearing it to work. Thank you ladies:) I made my niece a couple fused rings on a chain.
My niece and her husband visited from Iowa City. I just happened to be on vacation so we walked Hoomaluhia, Waikiki and went to the Bishop Museum. One exhibit was about how the Polynesians have ties to the Chinese of 7000 years ago. The planetarium show was about the Hokulea. The Polynesian Voyaging Society traverses the vast Pacific using the stars and waves. I got a little better understanding of the constellations. It's mind boggling that people in a canoe found Hawaii. If you miss it, it would be 2400 miles to the next closest land mass!
Hoomaluhia was very beautiful. The huge Panama Flame flower was in bloom and the ducks were lined up for their lunch.
Here he is, my nephew-inlaw, the Duck Whisperer!
