BOB AND CAMILLE AT HOME ON MAUI

 

CAT ON A HOT MOWER

 

Camille took a break after mowing the lawn next door and returned to the mower to find the cat taking advantage of the warm engine.

 

PEACE RALLY

On Saturday, October 26, Bob and Camille joined the Maui Peace Action to show support for global protests against a war on Iraq.  For more photos, click on Peace Rally.

CUT UPS

 

Bob shows off the ice cream carton he cut up for the compost pile.  Camille cut up nine nasty ni'oi peppers (small, red, ferociously hot chilies) for use in a new beer we named Nectar of Nine Ni'oi.  What else is going on around the house and garden?  To find out, click on Around the House

 

A PLANT TO KEEP THE GOBLINS AWAY

 

But will it work on our neighbor?  Probably not.  Anyway, Theresa's not evil, she's just posing as the Angel of Death to celebrate Halloween two years ago.  This beautiful plant will join the others in the garden after it has rooted.

 

FINISHING TOUCHES

   

After two years of digging and planting, we were inspired to plant a row of Ti plants at the top of our cascading wave of asparagus ferns to give it that finished look it's been missing.  Ti is generally planted to keep an area safe from Obake (Hawaiian Ghosts) such as the Night Marchers.  They say the Night Marchers will walk around the house rather than through it if a row of Ti plants are planted outside.

 

ONE OF THOSE MAGNIFICENT DAYS

 

October 12th was one of those.  Absolutely magic!

 

We're spending a few hours a month keeping the next door landscaping safe from molasses and cane grass.

 

THE FORD F 450

 

Bob doesn't have to share the new truck anymore.  His pride in his job shows in the care he takes of this truck and the way he always makes sure to let people pull out ahead of him in traffic.

 

VIETNAMESE PHO NOODLE SOUP

After all that playing around in the kitchen, we managed to produce this; a vegetarian soup made with tofu, udon noodles, ginger, basil, lemongrass, onion, carrots, soy sauce, garlic, sweet peas and chard.

 

SATURDAY AFTERNOON - October 5

 

This is typical - horsing around in the kitchen with champagne and sharp knives.  Good thing we're grown ups!!!

 

MOUNTAIN OF GOLD

Truly one of the riches in our life is this nourishing, natural fertilizer made from our household garbage.
