Oklahoma

Oklahoma is a funny place. I wish I meant funny in the amusing sense, but I mean it in the odd and difficult to explain sense.

Such a nice collection of children's books for the festival! We really appreciate the books, and I look forward to finding new readers for all of them.

Bookcrossing goodies


Bookcrossing goodies, originally uploaded by allysther.

Thank you, AlterEgoZoe!

Funny thing about this box of books--they were shipped from Stroudsburg, PA by someone who had no idea of my connection to the area. I did not even ask for the books!

They are to be a part of our massive release in May at the Hawaii Books and Music Festival. A dear friend of mine put out a call for books and I offered to receive a few of the boxes. This was completely out of the blue for me, and made me so happy.

It has been so cold here at night! I'm awfully glad that these kids came up with a good way to handle things. Sledding in mid March.

Baby birds


Baby birds, originally uploaded by allysther.

Wendall and his friends spotted a bird's nest in a fallen branch at the park. They ran home to get me, hoping I could help. We decided to move the nest to a protected spot in the crook of the same tree. Now the boys are very proud of themselves. We will check on the babies tomorrow.

Quilting project

I am *this* close to finishing the last project, so of course I throw myself headlong into the next. Some day I'll learn to enjoy reaching the end of whatever it is I might be doing.

Saturday afternoon


Saturday afternoon, originally uploaded by allysther.

Wendall feels it is important to have all of our errands done by noon. His friends know this, and start ringing the bell at 12:15. I don't offer lunch, though snacks are readily found. Dinner, however, is always large enough to share.

Sending aloha to Hilton


Sending aloha to Hilton, originally uploaded by allysther.

We went to Turtle Bay tonight to watch the sun set and to toss a lei into the surf for my father.

My brother spent a few minutes trying to set up the perfect shot. Sadly (for him) I managed to be in the best spot.

My father was the first person I knew with a mobile phone. Each of the 12 volt batteries was good for 45 minutes of talk time.
