Mm-mm Fish!

Mmm I beheaded, gutted, and cleaned them all by myself!
Then I invented a papaya, mango, citrus salsa to go on top!
SOOOOOO good :)

Richard tried it but decided it wasn't his favorite so ... I ate them both :D
I felt a bit like Cat from Red Dwarf:

The post to end all posts!

Sorry that was a bit dramatic. I'm not actually stopping just slowing. On top of working full time, trying to keep our house in order, growing a  tiny garden, being stuck in traffic somewhere between 2 and 3 hours a day,  and working on projects from my drafting business, I'm also trying to squeeze in as many awesome adventures as physically possible. This translates to zero 'down/bored time', meaning the blog may get pretty scarce. And even then, I think they will be more like the original posts, all pictures and very little text. Sorry.
However, I am going to charge up my headset so if you ever want to chat between 6:45-8:30am or 5:00- 6:30 pm (Hawaii Time) Shoot me a text and I can call you :)

So quick update:
We had an awesome Labor Day Weekend! We did the Aiea Loop trail, 4.5 miles plus a little extra for off shoots. It was long but really nice! It is one of my current favorite trails. It is completely covered with strawberry guava. (it is a terrible invasive plant, but it tastes SOOOO good)  Next time, I'll bring some tupperware and fill them up.
We didn't bring the camera, but here are a few phone shots.
Me eating a snack and enjoying the view:
 An Amazing root system:
 Roots with a veiw:
 This is one of those off shoots, it was so beautiful. It just kept going too:

My tiny little Meyer Lemon tree has six little lemons on it!! I am so very excited. All my herbs are doing well and my yellow and green zucchini plants are HUGE, but still have yet to give me anything :( I need to be better about fighting off the aphids and the evil ants that farm them.

We have lured several house geckos into our home to help with the bugs! We have at least 3 residents and have noticed a huge improvement on the nasty cockroaches! Our favorite is one we have dubbed ninja gecko. She wont move if you look at her, but the instant you look away she moves a few more inches. She is extremely patient... I have never been able to catch her actually moving.

Well that is all. See you when we see you :)

Growing up always seemed like such a hassle, Getting old even more so. 
In the not so distant past I honestly felt, it would be best to check out and leave this rock before age 40. 
But the older I get, the more I start to realize that every stage of this life is a grand adventure,
So you know what?
I think I will grow old:
