Hawaii Diaries 3

Hawaii is paradise. It sounds cheesy to say it, but there's music in the air there.
Bruno Mars

Day #3 Honolulu (December-16th 2013) began early as well. Blame it on the time difference or just my over anxious heart.
I was wide awake at 5am and, after getting tea and sour dough sandwiches from the regular cafe, I started to get ready.
That's when, the hubs said, "Z, its 6.30 and our bus is at 10.30...don't you think you are getting ready too early'"
LOL. Of course I knew, but seriously what else was I supposed to do?
So, finally after doing nothing we got on our bus. I was very cranky, but yay for the 'circle island tour'

STOP 1 -

Waiting for the bus :))

STOP 2-Waimea falls- Its a huge garden, where we went for a hike till the falls. Many people, swam but well we couldn't as we do not know the art. (Sigh)
Once we, sat back on the bus, our bus driver even treated us to loads of Hawaiian chocolates.

We made it :)

STOP 3 - North Shore Beaches- well, this was one of the best stops. I wish it was longer. I sat on the crowded beach and stared at it for awhile.
I just love this pic of mine...just 'cos it is so natural!

Have always wanted to do this :)
Stop 4-
Visiting a local fruit market

STOP 5 -
I am already feeling sad, here that the days in Honolulu are wrapping up. I got this pic clicked as souvenir?

STOP 6 - We went to the Turtle we did not see any turtles ;). Lunch, was at a secret island and after that the tour got wrapped up pretty soon.
(I was very tired as well)

One of the last stops, see I am so tired!

Byodo-In Temple

Secret Island

I went back to the room and zonked off (boo hoo) as when I woke up I was SO SAD, that  ' this is the end'
I am sad, ain't I ?

Sweet Dreams

What are dreams made of?

The first answer that pops in my head is this (start singing)
Sweet Dreams Are Made Of These...(By Eurythmics)

The second answer is 

I love this song

And, the final answer is that dreams are made up of our thoughts and what we want or do not want.
I also get intuitive dreams at times, like some years back I dreamt that my mom visited me with a friend, of hers,  who I had not met for years. And, the next day, it really did happen!!!

Anyways, to come to the point, I dreamt that I weigh 91Kilos.(200 pounds)
WOW!!! It was so scary that I had to soothe myself with home made frappacino and a pink mocktail.((Just let me know if you want the recipe;)

But, I think that dream was a warning from God. That, if I continue to eat, pray, eat, eat, eatdrink I will actually gain a lot of weight.

So, lets get back to business. It has been good 4 months and, I am sort of scared, to get back on the wagon.
(No workouts, no calorie counting)
But, I am going to do it :)

Do you get any warning dreams?

An update

Aloha, my friends. I have missed you all dearly.  

1. I was super busy with my kids, their exams and visiting my parents. 

2. My diet..What diet??? has been on a holiday--seems, I have forgotten all about why I even started this two years back. If you want you can read it here. I certainly need to read it all.

3.My kids start a brand new school tomorrow, they are going to be the third grade. I am nervous and excited at the same time!

4.I have been watching -The Good Wife- ((SPOILER ALERT)) why did they kill Will???? Why??? Why??? 

5. My kids won two awards, each, in their old school. :))

Have smudged that name of the school, for privacy! (he is holding an older award too)

6.. I watched Her...I didn't like it much? What about you?
