Busy week.

Started with a party, making good use of the new deck in front of the cottage. Guests showed up half an hour after this.

Happy first birthday to “Junia Junior” (Baby Keanu).



We got water hyacinths from our friend George in Nausori.  Hyacinths will be the low tech filtering system our pool when we get the channels created.

For now the hyacinths are just in the pool itself.


Yesterday, today and tomorrow – one of Fiji’s “winter flowers”

Full of blossoms, petals blanketing the ground.



A sack of toads …. whee.

This came from cleaning out the fish pond.  Why?


The number one comment on last week’s blog (on Facebook) was that the maggots did not look gross.  I had cropped the photo super tight.  So HERE.  THIS is what I found so gross.

You’re welcome.   (gag)



Akka finally got his citizenship.  Yay.  To celebrate we dug the foundation on the site of what will be his and Monica’s house – across the field by 3 unused fish ponds.

Excavation turned up a lot of wild turmeric.

We also dug the foundation for Junia and Nicole’s house at the end of his piece of land.  Photos coming by and by.


Happy week, everybody.
