Texeira Toes (we won’t tell you whose toes these are) and new clothes (Aowl Owen and Kimberly Hope went looking for new threads for their concert Thursday — yikes, it’s Valentine’s Day!) — were the order of the day Sunday when the wind and cold blanketed the island.

Brenda from Showtime Characters was a victim of a power outage and Melissa McFerrin-Warrack had to make-do with whatever she could pull together for the keiki.

But this was perfect timing to view the “Dennis quilt” that is part of the Kauai Quilt Show, (kudos to Lea Ingram — you have to check out her dimensional work!) Jeni Hardy, and all those quilters (Cheryl Brady had to come find The Happy Camper at the OceanFest) who have work displayed — yep, the turtles went home Saturday!

Carolyn Larson, Lihue Public Library Branch manager, has her niece, Milan Liu, visiting from Pennsylvania and they are looking ahead to the American Culinary Federation, Kauai Chapter, brunch (it’s their 33rd, and the biggest brunch on the island!) coming up Sunday from 7 to 11 a.m. at the Kauai Community College campus (just look for the big tent!).

Have a great, safe Valentine’s Day, Kauai!
