Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. Polona — it was a brief stop on a packed itinery, but we did manage to squeeze a bit of fun out of it.

    Dr. John — the past several weeks has pretty much been “one of those times.”

    Melli — Well, at noon we sign the lease on a two bedroom condo. Come visit.

    Mumma — it is a great ocean, isn’t it? Is it as blue there as it is here?

    Kat — yep — and it’s even better when you find the exact perfect place for the right price and the lease terms you want …. we sign at noon today.

    Nessa — come stand by me.

    Doug — I knew I could count on you for compassion. Not.

    Brooke — mostly we’re busy, but we’ve taken a couple of minute breaks to look around and convince ourselves — me mostly — that I’m really here.

  2. Melli — you and OC take all the fun out of everything. Our appetizer this evening was served on a very fancy triangular plate. I asked OC to clean it really well so I could put it in my purse …. he said no. Pft. 🙂

  3. Where did I miss you leaving Friday Harbor and arriving in Hawaii? I love looking at the Ocean (not so keen about going in it). The Atlantic is definently bluer ~ Much Colder

    Good luck in finding your house.

  4. haha, the wave hit you three times, hmmmmmmm sounds like someone was indeed taking their time, haha. But you look incredibly happy, and what a beautiful place to live. All looks wonderful 🙂

  5. Pauline — I love it here. My skin is soft again!

    Bill — it happened pretty fast for me, too. Too much had to be done in too little time — and none of it left room for blogging.

    Nea — whenever you need a break from your family, hop a plane …
