Show Me!

Robert from, Thoughts of a Father, is hosting, Show Me, his first photo project.  Rather than running with a theme for a week, Robert has a new photo request every day.  Today he wants to see me!

My schedule:

Monday — alarm rings at 4:45 a.m., I am ready for work and out the door by 5:30 and at work by 8:00.  I get off work at five do the crosstown crawl to OC’s office where we eat whatever I picked up for dinner.  We go to his Oahu Civic Orchestra rehearsal where he musics and I take photographs, write or just listen (I learned that I do have access to internet at Chamade University, where the rehearsal is held).  At 9:00 p.m. band rehearsal is over and we drive home.  Since night has slightly less traffic than day, we usually get to the condo by 10:30 p.m.

Tuesday — the same, except OC’s rehearsal is for the Honolulu Commuity Concert Band and there is no internet while I wait.  This past Tuesday night there was a horrific accident on the fhighway and we didn’t get in until almost mid-night.

Wednesday — I pick OC up after work and we start home.  Depending on “rush” hour traffic, the return home can take up to three hours.  Sometimes when we get home I cook, sometimes we stop for a sit-down meal (as opposed to take-out food eaten off styrofoam or wax paper at OC’s desk), the volume of traffic decides which we do.

Thursday  — Jazz Band practice ends at 8:30 p.m. rather than 9:00 o’clock, and there is no internet while I wait.  We’re usually home by 10:00 p.m.

Friday — looks like Wednesday, though we sometimes stop for a bit of weekend grocery shopping on the way home.

Saturdays — crash and burn.

Sunday — church and prep for the week ahead.

M is For Mangoes & Me

This mango tree is right outside our third floor window. There is another at the back of the house, too. The mangoes are a favored food for the peacocks, so when these ripen and fall the peacocks will migrate back to our side of the complex.

Me — not the best photo ever, but I don’t like my photos and won’t often pose for one, so I don’t have many to choose from.
