K-brow: green fire and a new little toy
I know it's Project Spectrum's Fire focus, but I'm drawn these days to the green fire of these spectacular farmers market stirfry leaves; chard, kale, beet greens, spinach, mizuna and friends. Call it spring tonic, but call me in time for dinner.
Here's another bit of green, though a cooler view, through the gates of a local temple, shot on my dog walk with Ella last week. We have so many temples and shrines in our area; this one is adjacent to Nuuanu Valley Park. I love its gates and the floaty paper flags they fly.
After a few days of mourning the irrevocable death of my hand-me-down 1999 Sony Vaio laptop, which had always been a good little trooper, surviving 2 major resurrections and hard use from P and myself for 9 fun-filled years, I cowgirled myself up and rode on over to the Apple website and picked out my new laptop. Years of pumping artificial life into the likes of the Vaio and the old Blueberry iBook have allowed me to justify the purchase of a new computer, one which will be here in just a few days...
No pix, suffice to say it's a mid-range macbook with bit more memory added. Yay. yay. yay.
