The Lull Before the Storm

I sit here watching a steady rain falling on the bright green foliage in our front yard. We are awaiting land fall of Tropical Storm Darby. We are hoping it does nothing more than drop a lot of rain with not-so-strong winds. We are very thankful it didn’t remain at hurricane status!!

We have plenty of provisions and fingers crossed we don’t lose power.

The prediction of its path has changed a bit and now Kauai is set for a direct mark. We are the little round island shown as green just above the 8 AM Mon.

Now we just wait.

Not only for a storm, but the arrival of our guests from Norman. Imant, Becca and their two small children are set to fly out Monday morning and, we hope, the storm will be well ahead of them so that they don’t have any delays.

Our other friends, Steven and Gwen, left mid-week and are now safely in China visiting their son. What a wonderful time we had with them during their stay! We celebrated 30+ years of friendship with good food and drinks, lots of laughs, and mostly sunshine during their stay.

Steve Gwen visit 0716

They were enchanted with the island and we showed them the highlights…Kalalou Lookout, the Waimea Canyon, Anini Beach, Poipu Beach…and we enjoyed eating out several times. Here was our sunset during dinner at the St. Regis in Princeville.

Muddy hikes and a kayak tour up the Wailua River to Secret Falls. It was so much fun having them here to see just a tiny part of what Kauai has to offer!

With the arrival of our other friends, we will begin a major project to the house…new hardwood flooring!

All the carpet will be ripped out and this will go in its place. One bathroom will be getting a makeover as well. Won’t this be fun!? :/

I hope to get at least one more top quilted before the storm hits and/or the Gammill longarm gets moved. Wish me luck! πŸ˜‰

Have a great Sunday!

    Hope the storm is more a Storm at Sea than on land.
