Works For Me Wednesday: Toys Edition


Works For Me Wednesday is about “toys” this week. The themed edition of Works-For-Me Wednesday is titled: The Toys Worth Buying Edition. With Christmas around the corner, we are posting our family’s favorite toys–the ones that won’t end up in the garage sale pile in a month! Let me suggest a few from our past:

Ceramic Tea Party Set – We got a set for our daughter when she was three and now that she’s 10 she still occasionally plays with it. Sometimes she uses real food, sometimes pretend – like a pie made out of play dough. Speaking of play dough…. that leads me to the next suggestion…

Wooden Clay Play Set – This playset encouraged creativity and gave my kids lots and lots of hours of fun.

Lego – It’s a classic. My son started building it when he was 3, he is now 11 and still enjoys it. Of course the designs he builds gets more complicated. We buy Legos every year and we had accumulated tons of pieces. But it’s all worth it.

and for a classic free toy: BOXES – like these:

Maui Voting Stations Are Organized. How About Yours?

I voted this morning around 8:30 AM. There was a very short line, but everything is so organized – the flow is great. I read on the internet that in other States there are problems of long lines, not here on Maui.

If you have not voted yet, go out and vote now. Don’t take for granted this special priviledge we have as Americans. Let your vote count.
I was in a rush this morning to vote before I go to work that I didn’t think about bringing my camera. The photo above is from Honolulu Advertiser. Click here for their article. Their lines are longer than what I had experienced here on Maui, but it’s still better than other States.

Lobster


Friends of ours went diving on Sunday morning and came back with this awesome catch! They all know I love lobster so they brought it to our house to cook. We had a cook-out with our families – lots of ono grinds! Aside from the lobster, we they also caught some fish which we fried – yum!

I guess this is one of the perks living on the island – my friends enjoys diving and fishing, I enjoy eating their catch :)
