Back on the mainland and reality

Yes, I decided to come back from Hawaii. Oh it was so beautiful there! And peaceful, friendly, and no worries, which is one of the mottos there. I was on the Big Island and it was absolutely amazing. The Pacific was a beautiful crystal clear blue. We visited Volcano National Park and circled the island. Each quadrant of the island is a different type of scenery and climate. From the warm sunny Kona side, to the rain forests of Hilo, and the deserts and plains around Honokaa and Waimea. I have never seen or experienced anything like it.

I know we were tourists and therefore everyone tries to be friendly to us, but they just seemed to be genuinely nice people who have a good attitude towards life in general. It was even more apparent to me after I got home and spent a day running errands around South Philly. But lets not go there.

Unfortunately, I did catch a terrible sinus infection before I left, and was sick as a dog when I came home. So, I'm not ready to share my pictures. As soon as I do, I'll put a link up to them.
Of note, I am trying my hardest to catch up on all my blog reading and stuff, but you guys have certainly been busy. My goodness! So please don't think I stopped reading :)

Next time, I'll post my purchases (there is one yarn store on the BI as far as I know), and what I knitted, which was hardly anything. Until then, take care and happy knitting. (This guy moves about as fast as I knit sometimes.)



  1. Wow! Your back from paradise. Welcome home. You must be so refreshed after 2 weeks of relaxing. I can't wait to see you pictures. I'll live through your vacation until I can take one of my own! LOL!!!!

  2. I'm so glad your long awaited dream vacation was truly a trip to paradise! But I am glad to have my knitting buddy back! So welcome home. Can't wait to see all the pics.

  3. YAY, you are home! I hope you feel better soon. Love the pictures you did post and can't wait to see the others. : )

  4. Welcome Back! We are glad you came home even if it sounds like paradise!
