I went to get my car serviced yesterday and while it was in the shop, I went to the local mall (where I hadn't been in a long long time) and was walking around and happened to see this THING moving down the mall.
It was MOVING! I was astounded. It had lights flashing and went back and forth. I asked someone working at one of those little kiosks and he told me that this is for SECURITY. It is filming everyone and everything and moving around to make sure it covers everyone. WEIRD!! What have I been missing??!!
And then, not to be outdone, I went for a snack and saw THIS, which was stationary, but WEIRD nonetheless.
It was animated and talking! What has happened to malls?? VBG
I promised I would show you some pictures from Diamond Head, which was an old volcano in Honolulu. It was also used as an outpost during the war, although the top was very small so it only had a small area for watching for enemies! ;-)
It was a pretty strenuous hike up, involving some VERY steep steps. I was too winded to take a picture, and I'm sorry I didn't. But here are some shots. If provided a beautiful view over the water and the old crater.
This is Diamond Head from the beach. We hiked up to the tippy top!
Here you can see the outer edge of the crater:
Look at the colors of the water!! Isn't that gorgeous??!! You can see we were pretty high up!
This is looking in the other direction, towards Waikiki Beach. Water still beautiful!
I continue to be amazed at how some people seem to think that rules don't apply to them. There was a big sign telling people to STOP and not go any further. And the DANGER warning sign was obviously unheeded!
We had a fun girls' weekend in the warmth and sunshine, sans husbands!
it's still good to be back home; I'm babysitting today for my grandkids and we are having them with us this weekend! No sewing for me but there is a quilt show put on by my local guild and I'm going on Sunday. Quilt pictures to follow, I promise.
My friend Claire shared this quilt with me that she was putting in the show. She is so creative.
She designed a block of the month every month this past year for the guild, using scraps. I think this was one of the first. I love how she cut off the boats at the bottom and the top. She also has a longarm and did a great job quilting, I think.
Have a great weekend!
