Lest you think my blog is about to turn into All About Maui Inc., I promise you, it isn’t. Unless I move there of course. No plans as of yet, so I think you’re all safe. Since coming back from our Maui vacation, it’s been a little rocky getting back on schedule. I think I finally experienced […]

When we booked our trip for Maui, I sorda knew what was ahead. I’ve been there a few times before, but after 15 years, and me running the show this round, I wasn’t sure how brave I’d be. In other words, how adventurous would I be capable of? Would I take in the (somewhat expensive) […]

When I was first hunting for a place to stay in Maui, I called on Pastor Dwayne for his advice. Dwayne is well travelled, and at first, I just requested some suggestions to take to a travel agent. That all flew out the window pretty quick! I was quickly encouraged to book everything myself. Yikes… I’m […]

My friend Hanne had an old drill that use to belong to her Grandfather. We recently connected and she expressed an interest in having a toolbox made with it like I did to my original drill handled toolbox HERE. It’s been awhile… could I remember how to make another pallet wood drill handed toolbox planter?!  Not […]

15 years ago, I was in Hawaii for an entire MONTH. My son was about to enter the picture, and I had an inkling I wouldn’t be back to Maui for a good long time afterwards.  My gut feeling turned out to be right. Motherhood became my ultimate hobby, and then hard times hit. So […]

My front entry table was looking ‘tired’. I could either choose to tidy it up some, or start over. But…. I don’t know. I was ready to shake things up a little. You know how it doesn’t really matter how nice something is, it just feels old when it’s been around too long? That. So […]

Today was a very nice day. My son is at his Dad’s, which left me completely in my own element. It’s been awhile. My morning coffee started out on the patio. I could feel the heat of the day firing up, but was in no rush to partake in rushing. My Kicking Horse coffee was as […]

 With our muggy, summery days of late, it’s been nice to escape to the patio to take in the summer breeze. But I was missing one thing. While I made a handy little crate side table with a tray top, it wasn’t really perfect for say… a laptop. Being that I had two pallet sofas, another table […]
