So, we've been living here on Kauai just over a week. It still feels like a dream and I can't say that it's totally sunk in yet. It just seems amazing to me that we're actually living here.
This past week has been mostly spent trying to get organized in our little home, buying food and supplies and getting the kiddos enrolled in school. We're staying in our condo which is just under 650 square feet until we buy a home. It's cozy but, we're making it work. Nobody has flipped out and lost their aloha yet.
My husband is back to work. He works from home. His schedule is 5am to 1pm. He really likes the hours and doesn't mind waking up early. It's been great to have the rest of the day to enjoy together.
Yesterday we got to see my husband's cousins and auntie who are visiting from the Mainland. They timed their vacation perfectly. Any sooner and we would've missed them. We hung out at the beach for awhile then invited them to our house for pupus and dinner. Pupus (appetizers) was cut up papaya, poi and poke. We kept dinner super simple....ordered take out from L&L Hawaiian. We got chicken katsu and stir fried vegetables with tofu. It was delicious and an incredible value. We got enough food to generously feed 11 people for $45! And we have left overs!
The farmer's market here on Kauai have a wonderful variety of fresh fruit and veggies at prices comparable and sometimes cheaper than what we used to pay in San Diego. One of our favorite venders has everything for $2 each. Basil, okra, papaya, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, water spinach and more. It's easy to eat healthy here.
Thanks for reading my diary!
