Too Busy

I’m too busy to fix my blog. I have a really good excuse though. 

 

My mom is here and we’ve been too busy shopping and eating and playing tourist to spend much time contemplating blog themes.

We’ve hung pictures, rearranged furniture, bought bookcases, found COSTCO, gotten lost, tried to go on a submarine (no-go as there wasn’t enough visibility underwater), made our own volcano:

…bought Aloha wear, went to the Windward side of the island:

… and persevered until we found Ladybug Plants in Waimanalo — possibly the best plant nursery ever! The plants are plentiful, the staff unbelievably friendly and helpful, and the prices are great. 

And we went to Dave’s and ate Mochi ice cream just because:

I was tempted to try the Taro ice cream because it was purple, and maybe pair it with the greenest Green Tea ice cream I’ve ever seen, but the idea of pasty Taro wasn’t enticing me. I’m not sure I’d go for Mochi ice cream again though. The ice cream was good, but the mochi around it was kinda like bland fondant and I just didn’t find the combo exciting. I much preferred the gooey/crispy pairing of last weekend’s poi mochi. Now I’d like to try some real Japanese mochi just to round out my mochi experience. Dave’s had all manner of Bubble Drinks though, so obviously I’ve been hiding under a rock all these years and am the last one to discover these!
