Happy Friday! After an especially intense week at practicum [I work with adults with severe mental illness], I think I’m a little too excited to have the weekend at my fingertips.
We’ve been transitioning to fall weather here on Maui [read: more rain], plus Halloween always brings up some weird stuff, so I’m hoping next week will bring more balance to the individuals I work with.
To add to the practicum craziness this week, we’ve had some strange things happening in our yard:
The house we’ve been renting for 3+ years went on the market quite a few months ago to be sold. They’ve got a buyer but apparently there are some things that need to happen before the sale can go through – including changing some things about our septic system.
So for the past week or so we’ve had a dude in a back-hoe digging a six-foot-deep
swimming pool hole in the front yard. I’m not sure what the rest of this process is going to entail, but we’ve been quite the talk of the neighborhood lately.
In other front yard news, we’ve got many o’ papaya healthily growing
as well as wayyy too many starfruit to possibly split between the two families on our property.
[I actually feel horrible that dozens have already fallen and rotted on the ground ]
And because we’re talking tropical fruit, I wanted to entice you all with the most deliciously creamy and beautiful avocado I’ve eaten all year [did you know that Hawai`i grows over 200 varieties of avocadoes?] :
[that’s an entrée fork for size reference ]
Okay, so the avo wasn’t from my yard – I picked it up from the farmer’s market this past weekend – but I wish it was!
We’ve got another fabulous Friday on our hands, which means I’ve got a great butt-kickin’ class to teach, a meeting, errands, and a few chapters to read before the weekend is upon us once more! Have a beautiful weekend!
