Saturday was jam-packed with bible study, downloading pix, lunch at home and a nap. then the real fun began. We spend most of our Saturday evenings with a group I call the Saturday Night Crew. We started out with some geo-bachelors Bill worked with and added a few couples along the way. We've since lost our geo-bachelors and are reduced to three couples who love to eat out together. We visited one of our favorites - Pizza In The Sky. I believe they serve the best pizza on-island!!!!
We have recently hired Mamasans to clean twice a month and their vacuum cleaner finally bit the dust - literally. This meant that the House of Traquair needed to acquire a new dog-hair-sucker-upper if the bi-monthly mission was going to get accomplished. Since we are living in the land-of-not-many-choices and we needed to acquire this lovely tool in less than three days we mulled over the few options we had at the Foster PX and made our choice. We are now the happy owners of a Dyson with a net weight of 18.5 lbs and has a telescope reach wand that extends 17 ft. With a 5 year warranty and Lifetime HEPA filter we paid more for it than I want to admit. Suffice to say that my Mamasans survived their first day with this monster dog-hair sucker-upper and are willing to return in two weeks.

Tuesday is my PWOC Bible study day. This was our second week in our summer studies and I continue to be blessed by our fun scrapbooking study on the Fruit of The Spirit. We gained a few more participants and shared our creatively diverse pages with each other. As in true PWOC fashion, we headed off to lunch at one of our favorite local haunts - Su Su Soon!!!

Wednesday I continued the scrapbooking fun with Jana, Kim and Ginger. I actually accomplished one small project, started another, enjoyed some AWESOME home-made chocolate-chip cookies and spent the morning chatting with my creative friends. We couldn't stand to part so we continued our fun while doing lunch at the Cafe Latte in the Kadena O'Club. God has truly blessed me with friends who are creative and love to eat - He is AWESOME!!!!!
We closed out the day with dinner at our favorite Thai Restaurant - Somchai's. I love their food but I have to say that I love that they call us by name and we can chat with the owners while they cook and prepare our food. No, we aren't sitting in their kitchen but we are really close. Richard, who does most of the cooking, LOVES what he does and prepares our meals out in the open with only a "bar" between him and his customers. I missed it so much while I was stateside that I over ate, of course!!! Then we scooted home to watch "Taking Pelham 123" with John Travolta and Denzel Washington. Great movie but be prepared for the language - lots of colorful language. It goes with the movie but it's still sorta hard to "hear"!!! I wish it didn't have to be that way but as I have come accustomed to saying recently, "It is what it is".
Have a great week and I'll see you next Thursday!!!!! P.S. I am having trouble figuring out blogger and I have no idea to fix the spacing issues I am obviously having. Just so you know, I do know that the spacing in this post is off and I had to choose to publish this now or never publish it out of sheer frustration!!!! Obviously I chose to publish - enjoy even with the spacing issues!!!
