Looking at recent photos in my camera; I was busy outside of my sewing 'corner'; distracted by the days of summer ! ...
I took my nephew fishing
and shared in his delight on his victory; however tiny !
Paddlers passing by
Then off to an o-bon festival; an annual Japanese Buddhist tradition that honors the spirit of ancestors passed. In Hawaii, the festivals serve as both a ceremony of spiritual remembrance and a celebration of cultural heritage and community; where everyone is welcomed to dance and EAT.
Sadly, instead of a kimono, I donned on an apron and slaved over a hot wok making ANDAGI; Okinawan donuts; an Island Favorite !

We finished off the month of July with a trip to an EAT THE STREET event; a gathering of local food trucks; serving up ono kine grindz (Hawaii's way of saying "delicious eats"). This is a new truck featuring yummy fried chicken and FRIED spam musubi (rice ball). Did I tell you how much Hawaii folks LOVE canned meats??
Hope to be back soon with a tut ~ till then
Happy Day (*^_^*)
