Sunday Salon Hawaiian Style

Aloha from Hawaii! We arrived mid-day Friday. My husband has a conference this week and I tagged along. We are staying at Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore of Oahu. Heaven! 

I'm listening to: Flip by Martin Bedford. I will finish up with this thought-provoking story when we return on Wednesday.

I'm reading: Divergent by Veronica Roth.  I have finally started this popular, dystopian novel after carrying the book around for weeks.

Book reviewed this week: 
-Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor.  Loved, loved, loved it. A new favorite!
-Entwined by Heather Dixon. A retelling of the Grimm's Fairy Tale Twelve Dancing Princesses. Surprisingly dark and scary.

Scripture: Psalms 100:4-5 Give thanks with a grateful heart

Around the house:  Our home away from home. A view from our balcony.






From Karl's kitchen: Karl, a friend from college, made BBQ teriyaki beef, chicken, and ribs. He served it to us while we played on a white-sand beach.  Maholo, Karl, it was a special day.  And remember, you promised to send me the marinade recipe!

Off for some snorkeling! Aloha!
