Chilly In Paradise

I'm sure that in most parts of the country right now temperatures in the lower 60's would be a welcome relief from the cold.

But in Hawaii, where we are used to the temperature being 82 degrees pretty much all year round, getting down into the 60's is very, very chilly. I can't say cold because certain people in my household (masculine type, one each) freak out if I say it's cold.

And it's not cold. We lived in Alaska for three years. I know cold.

But it has gotten down to 56 degrees here and our blood has thinned over the last two years and it is very, very chilly.



  1. It took me a minute to figure who that is sitting in front of the fireplace. Haven't gotten used to the new 'do' yet. :0)
    Great picture - SO funny!

  2. I completely understand!! I live in South Florida, but lived in Hawaii (on Oahu ~ Pearl Harbor and Pearl City) for 3 yrs....and now that I have either been subtropics or tropics for over 20 yrs my blood has thinned also. We have had a couple of really cold winters the past few years.

    I met my husband in the Navy back in 1990 (Great Lakes, ILL) and I was stationed at SIMA Pearl Harbor during the first Gulf War.

    I am a homeschool mom of 3 girls (11,8 and 3), and always get so excited to find other mom/family blogs in Hawaii since I used to live there. Brings back memories...though I wasn't a mom then. Really fun when they are military blogs since I was military myself. Or homeschool. If you know of any be sure to send them my way (let me know). THANKS!!
