We have been deep cleaning rooms. I lost my voice due to mold or gecko poop. (Not sure which.) But it has been good to clean. We are also making trash runs. Did I mention yet that dropping off trash — even electronic trash under a certain size — is FREE here! Free! (They weigh you in and out to charge you everywhere else I have lived.)

Outside of a lost voice. I am good!

The lady here is renewing the lease and wants almost $8,000 for monthly rent.

Nope. No. No.

So we’ll probably be looking for a cheaper place.

Just FYI.

So the last four times that I went to the beach were sporadic. One time it was at 10 AM, one time at 2 PM, once around 4 PM and once around 5 PM. I pretty much swim in the same spot each time.

The last four times, I have had a Honu breach and look at me. A giant sea turtle.

A local family that I see in the same spot were very excited to see it. They said you see the sea turtles all the time down by the military bases, but they have never seen one on this beach at this location before that day. I mentioned seeing it the last four times I swam in a row. Dave, my housemate, when I mentioned it to him said he has only seen one “Honu” at that beach in the 18 times he has lived in Hawaii.

Look up “meaning of honu” in a search engine.

So, I started watching this series two weeks ago. Sog through the first 2 episodes because all the next ones will make you ache with laughter. (The link is there. It is just very light colored.)

Drove today

My roommate had a procedure today. So, I drove to Honolulu this AM. It was the first time I have really driven any length of time in the last seven years. The highways here are odd. Terrible. No rhyme or reason. And the parking garage for the hospital is build down into a ravine. And no one understands round-a-bouts. Or how to park and drop off a person.

But I drove.

Tonight is women’s small group. My one time a week around females. They talk a ton. There Biblical knowledge seems young? Immature? Developing? A lot of them are college students, so they are still very young.

I am old.
