New Year’s Eve, 2016

David and I recently dined at Morton’s Steak House. That’s Caesar’s Salad on the table:


We are going to stay home today and tonight, because we want to keep to ourselves. The neighbors on our street will probably burn firecrackers to welcome the new year, but we plan to close the windows and turn on the air conditioner to prevent the smoke from entering our house.

We are happy with our home, our plants, our artwork, and our music. Somehow, we have managed to make our marriage work, and there is no need for a divorce.

What do I expect in 2017? I expect to maintain the status quo.  There is peace in Hawaii.  No riots, no looting, no interracial violence, no terrorism.  Let’s keep it that way.

And I’ll continue to write this gigi-hawaii blog. It’s not a Ph.D. dissertation, nor is it the holy Bible.  It’s meant to be light and breezy, showing the world what my life is like in Hawaii.

To all of you, who hail from all parts of the world, I say, “Aloha and mahalo for stopping by.”

    Happy New Year to you both 🎉
    We will spend the evening at home too and that is fine with us, but we will celebrate Jan 1 with a 1st day walk.

    I remeber those firecrackers at New Year’s in Hawaii. Smokiest place in the US on new Year’s, I think.

    Happy New Year to you, too! I will also be staying home and having a nice and hopefully quieter eve without much going on, letting 2016 pass by. 2017 will be awesome.

    We went to the early movie (Manchester by the Sea) then went to bed early. New Year’s Eve is for the young. “Aloha and mahalo” to you as well!

    I agree with Tom Sightings. I saw that movie yesterday and was asleep by midnight. Other than my neighbors setting off fireworks, it was uneventful. Happy New Year to the both of you. 🙂

    Aloha from the Washington coast, brrrrr….it is freezing cold and I fear ice and snow to boot, but warm with friends in a tiny cabin people we are closer to than blood family since we both my hubs and I were 5 years old, some have mates, (wives & hubby’s some widows and widowers but we all stick together)! We will feast some more on fish, lobster, clams, mussels, salmon and spuds, corn and veggies, we had sparking cider for our NYE’s toast and are all so happy to be alive..Life is for the living and enjoy each and every moment, we will travel on the Amtrak to seattle to spend a week with our only child before she heads to Sundance in Utah for the big film festival we do it every January..aloha and peace, joy and love to you for 2017 and forever!XXX()()()()()()XXX
