Chiang Rai had a pleasant, cloudy morning and a rainy afternoon. Good for napping (555). Now we’re pondering the weekend weather in Bangkok, where the forecasts are for hot and rainy at times. Oh boy.
This week’s ‘Easy Monday’ song is still loved by many. Here’s the last verse: “Tears are running, they’re all running down your breast. And your friends baby, they treat you like a guest. Don’t you want __ __ __? Don’t you need __ __ __? Wouldn’t you love __ __ __? You better find __ __ __.” Clue: It was the summer of what?
This morning we did the Big C run and then went to the mall for coffee, and eggs from Top’s. I mention Top’s because the way the parking lot is all messed up, there is a special section for parking. When we pulled in, I mentioned to the guard that we needed to park for Top’s. No problem, he pulled the little gate aside and we parked right in front of the entrance. At this time, the mall was still closed, but having access to the market let us walk over to Starbuck’s, get our coffee and then walk back through the mall (now opened) and buy our eggs. It was a brilliant morning (555). While we were there we saw two people we know. It happens like that and it makes us smile.
Nitchanan is on a school break for one month. Today, when we returned, she was in the midst of a meltdown. By the time we sat down for lunch, she was over it and ready to join us. First she distributed the pillows and then sat down to eat her food. She did pretty well, considering the distraction of wanting us to see how she eats (gross). There is nothing more ‘entertaining’ than a little one showing you the food that is in their mouth. What? One of the constants is Nitchanan trying to slip upstairs. Fortunately, she knows to wait at the bottom until someone goes with her. She has been known to go all way up by herself, but I think she got a lecture. It’s never a dull moment with a curious two year old.
We have been in several texting conversations with Tatt, trying to get a handle on the logistics of his graduation on Friday. It has finally been determined that the best thing for us to do is to come to the university after the ceremonies are over, since we can’t really see them except on a remote big screen. We’ll meet with his family, take photos and then go to lunch. He is very excited and wants everyone to be comfortable. What a guy. Of course, more will be revealed.
Today’s photo is Daku and Chopper, hanging out upstairs. You can see that Chopper is no longer the ‘Little Dog’. He’s a big puppy and we have to remember that he doesn’t always know how to act. He’s cool until he gets too excited. Being upstairs is helping him to mellow out.
Have a Happy Tuesday.
“Feelings are just visitors.
Let them come and go.”
