Something Like This...

Sitting on the plane I know 3 things. 1) I just left the greatest place I know-home, and it’ll all be there when I return, so I will go enjoy Idaho and of course get the job done as best as I can . 2) This flight will be short and sweet compared to the South Africa trip, that will forever remain in my head as the longest sitting experience I will never forget. 3) Where I’m going is DARN cold, I was told by a few local Idahoians. Lovely…me no likey cold.
To pass the time I decide to work on one of the projects I’m tackling for the Kona-California Scholarship fundraising (and you all better support it when it’s ready for action). I pop open the computer, plug the head phones into the computer totally ready to jam while I type. The plane is of course noisy but I hear the music. With the head phones on I continue to turn the volume up. O-Shens “Island Jewel” is playing, I completely love that song and just imagine its being sung to me by some Island tan boy back home…but anyways, I am now full on jamming, head bobbing, smiling, even shaking the hips a little in my seat. Still the volume is too low so I make it go as loud as I can and discover the people near me looking quite funnily, I smile the kind of smile that says, “mind your own business” , then take off the ear phones to get my gum out of my bag only to find the head phones were indeed NOT plugged into the computer and the music was floating throughout the plane to everyone but me because I had the head phones on barely hearing it… ahh, what a start to a will-be-great-trip!
Well….Im arriving at midnight. Fantastic. Just in time for bed. Tomorrow I know I have a bike ride on tap, so if by chance anyone reading this in Idaho near the race, if you want to ride bikes with me PLEASE let me know. This island girl would love company, or a personal map to keep me from riding to the ocean, because back home it seems all bike rides land us near the ocean! Okay….that’s all the reporting I have to scoop you all on. Once I begin the Idaho experience I will hopefully have something more exciting, like a giant potato discovery or something. Till then, just a few of yesterdays “under the sun” day with Kainoa photos…

and of course my new nephew and his parents :)

One flight down, one to go. Hope somebody back home caught the sunset for me, the plane ride didn't have the greatest view. Next stop: Idaho (well, Spokane, then drive to Idaho....)
Thanks for reading...

I am laughing hard about the music and the headphones. If I did something like that I would be mortified because I have some songs with the "PARENTAL ADVISORY" tag on them.

You are going to do awesome this weekend making hashbrowns, french fries, and twice baked potatoes out of that course this weekend.

Think warm island thoughts. I hate the cold water too.
