Sunny days are finally back! =)

I really know that I should be the last person complaining about weather but with winter even Hawaii is subject to gray and cloudier skies and a notable lack of sunshine as has been the case for much of the past 3 weeks or so here. But today is just beautiful with hardly any clouds and the blue blue skies and sunshine have returned! \(^o^)/☆

Hm…now I'm off to work as this is a six day work week!….and a rarity as it's a night shift. :/

    It's always nice when sun shines & you don't have to wear WINTER CLOTHES. When you next time have dark, windy, rainy and chilly day please remember how different things could be somewhere out of Hawaii. Like here in Finland for example. Today we got cloudy weather with temperature around -2 Celsius (-1,8 F). I'm just waiting for spring & summer here. Oh, forgot to say that it's snowing at the moment.

  4. Hi Ann! I'm so not used to working anything more than five days so my body is saying please please please stop!! >_< I hope you're doing well and I imagine it must be so cold there!!! Too much for me!! When we get into the low 60's or 50's I'm already like an ice cube! ^ ^

  6. You are so right Zush!…..I'm so silly to be thinking that even our darker weather is in any way that bad as it isn't compared to just about anywhere else! 😛 Sorry I'm so spoiled rotten! >_< I would never survive in Finland unless I never left the house during the winter and could stay in a heated room always I'm afraid (´⌒`。).

    No you're not too pathetic 😉 I'm always dreaming about Hawaii when I've cold feet and my nose is freezing. And if you someday have chance to come to Finland… and if it happens to be winter season then you just wear warm winter clothes and you will SURVIVE.

  11. We actually drove a bit when this photo was taken as I live more in the central area of the island but it's not really that large here so happily getting to the beach on any side isn't too far away. ^ ^ It's really a wonder that I don't go to the beach more often as I've gotten really really fair skinned since I stopped going swimming.

  12. I've just never experienced such cold weather in my life as I've always lived here although I have hiked up pretty high on one of our neighbor islands and it got pretty cold there but nothing like the temperatures that you're faced with daily during the winter. ^ ^ I would be all frozen stiff and I'll surely take all of your blankets!! 😛 I wouldn't mind skiing as long as the slope wasn't too steep and I could take my time getting down. =) Please don't laugh but ice skating actually frightens me more as I'm just so afraid of the blades on the ice skates and I have this inner fear that I'd get slashed by them somehow in the midst of me being clumsy (´⌒`。). But if ever went skiing someone would have to help me the entire way otherwise I may freak out! >_<;

    lol, I can give you some blankets or even super warm reindeer pelt to keep you alive. Now I try to imagine how could it be possible to hurt yourself with skates when you are wearing & skating with them. It's almost impossible accident to happen. By the way, people here are skating here also on sea ice when it's thick enough. I skated on sea ice last time two years ago. It's quite a awesome experience.

    Reideer pelt (fur) looks like this. I got one of those for my mom and dad some years ago. It was a Christmas present to them. When you wrap yourself inside it you don't feel chilly any more.
    If you fear northern winter you can always visit here in the summer season. Midnight sun is also quite a unusual experience in the end of June. Sun shines then even at midnight.

It must be really difficult surviving such temperature shifts and I usually say that I prefer the cold to it being too warm but our "cold" is in the 50's and even that doesn't happen very often so surely I'd have a hard time coping with such extreme weather that you experience there. Our summers are really humid though and you find yourself dripping sweat even when you're just sitting doing nothing as the humidity is really high here and in this case I would prefer a much drier heat if I had a choice. ^ ^

Hmmm…your descriptions are too much for me! 😛 Awkward and ordinary…I think that best describes me. :)LOL I could never survive for a long period of time in a really cold environment! Back in 2006 when I visited Las Vegas the weather was really strange that year and it got into the low 30's with the wind chill and it was so cold for me that I had to go back to the car during qualifying day at LVMS on Friday because my body was numb and I actually was in pain (´⌒`。). I couldn't believe how cold it was and the overcast skies weren't helping either. When we were leaving our seats I got the most funny stares from some of the other fans there as I knew they were thinking I was so weak not to be able to stand the cold! >_<; Either that or they may have just thought that I looked strange as I didn't see a single other oriental fan at the track the entire time we were there over 2 days. :/I'm hoping that the 2 a.m. shifts stop soon and actually for today and tomorrow we started at 4 instead which is so much easier! 🙂 February 15th!

(´⌒`。) I kept my hands in my pockets near to my body but they still went numb. A friend later told me that I should gain some weight because I'm way too think and if I weighed more I wouldn't have been so succeptible to the cold weather so much…….so in essence I'm being told to eat more because I weigh too little! 😦 Hmm….I don't think I could do that though, not just to keep warm especially since I don't normally stay in a cold climate. ^ ^

    Thank you! Between my full time job training (if accepted) and my part-time first job, I expect to be pulling five 13 hour days (+ the time it takes to get ready for both) per week for the next two to three months, before all levels off, and I settle into two part-time jobs.
    I'm hoping to wind up with five hour-a-day shifts between the both, equalling 10 work hours per day, (with two hours of prep and travel time between them.)
    -25 hours per week at one job, maybe 20 hours per week at the other. -That should make me more comfortable with enough money to continue to pay my bills and to fund my musical needs.
    -I hope this works!
    I am grateful to find employment in a time when millions of others are losing theirs, and I hope I can use this opportunity to grow and be someone again.
    -Once again, I am TOTALLY grateful for your patience with me as I struggle to get back on my feet.
    Not only are you a treasure, you are a beautiful treasure, and I hope you never feel any differently!
