Goodbye, my Oreo

After a tough fight with age-related illnesses, little Oreo went on her journey this afternoon to Rainbow Bridge. She was such a special bunny to us and it was especially tough to lose her because she was our vey first rescue. When we found her at a high-kill animal shelter over 9 years ago, she was placed in a holding area dubbed "death row" and was only given one week to live due to over population at the shelter. She was an abandoned bunny, only about 3 months old when we got her and we are lucky to have found her at the right time. Goodbye for now my little Oreo. Run free and do bunny twirls under the rainbow. Mama misses you terribly.

Ornamental Musings

My friend is hosting a holiday ornament exchange party this Friday where each guest is to bring one ornament. It makes it especially hard for me since I've seen some very pretty ones in so many stores, and I can't seem to decide which to get. Here are a few of my favorites from Pier 1 and Anthropologie:

Have a Snow Day!

Create some snow today! The more snowflakes created by the end of the year, the more donations given to The Salvation Army.

Create your snowflakes now.

A Few of My Favorite Things

I’ve been hit with the flu bug and have had it for about a week now, pretty much right after the Ho'ike. All the running around and preparation for the performance, combined with being around a flu-stricken co-worker, finally took a toll on my immunity. I stayed home from work for a few days and did absolutely nothing but curl up in a warm afghan, cuddle with my pets, and watch a few of my favorite movies: Sleepless in Seattle, Serendipity and The Wedding Planner. Somehow, watching these girly movies that have common themes of nostalgia, belief in fate and wishes, got me listing some of my most favorite pastimes, places and comfort items:

~Foggy San Francisco mornings
~Steamy kitchen windows while mother makes chicken and rice soup
~Finger drawings on said steamy kitchen windows
~Shopping in Union Square with mother
~Smell of eucalyptus while walking in Golden Gate Park
~Seeing the red glow of sunset glistening on downtown San Francisco high-rise windows while walking to bus stop after work
~Sancha ballet shoes
~Wearing said Sancha ballet shoes while dancing at Academy of Ballet School
~Mac and cheese
~Potatoes and gravy
~Spam (extra crispy, please) and rice (typical ono ono Hawaiian breakfast!)
~Cheese ravioli
~Vanilla malt
~Lindt chocolates
~Mint chocolate gelato
~Driving down the SF Peninsula and stopping at beach to make sandcastles with Josh
~Rainy, warm Maui days
~Snorkeling with sea turtles in Hawaii
~The purring and snoring sounds of my rabbits and dog
~Picking apples at an apple orchard in the Fall
~The sound/beat of the ipu heke (Hawaiian drum)

I can go on and on...
