Chiang Rai had a rainless day today.  It was a relief to not have to deal with things related to rain.  The air was clean and the temperature was mild.  The sun even tried to peak out a few times.  

This week’s ‘Easy Monday’ seems to be stuck at one person knowing the song.  That can’t be.  Read/sing a little more of the chorus and let me know you know this:  “You’re __ __ __ I want to talk to in bed, __ __ __ that turns my head.  We’re still havin’ fun, and you’re __ __ __… __ __ __ that makes me laugh, __ __ __ that’s my better half.  We’re still havin’ fun and you’re __ __ __.”  Clue:  An individual who remains dearest.

This evening we will go to the temple for the first service commemorating the passing of our dear friend Sutheera’s father.  Earlier this year her mother passed away.  Her dad and mom arranged the memorial at our house for Blue.  Times like these make me very grateful for the people in my life.  They also remind me of the ones who are no longer here.  

We basically spent the day at home.  Lisa’s left hand is very swollen from the injection yesterday.  The doctor told her it would happen.  She’s half-way through the 2 day ice therapy suggested by the doctor.  Along with that, there are the effects of all the medicines that they put in her yesterday.  

Out on the main road that intersects with our soi (small street) there is road work going on.  Actually, it’s work that is in the road.  It looks like there is a storm drain project starting because a long trench is being dug.  I have seen these projects in other areas and they often take a long time to complete.  We may be using an alternate route for months.  Oh well, if it keeps things from flooding then it’s worth it.

Today’s photo is from the Hill Tribe exhibit at the mall.  The thing to remember is that all of these designs are hand-stitched.

Have a Happy Tuesday.
