it has been a super long week. so long that i wondered if there was going to be an end. half way through i thought i would drop. there are so much to get done at work. and i feel under the pressure most of the time, not from peers but from myself. that is why i am so grateful for friday night and weekends.
so after work today, i just went out for a walk down the market that is just 5 minutes away but i barely go there. i went to a movie shop to rent some dvds then get some food for dinner and breakfast. what excited me the most was the oranges! i LOVE oranges. that just made my night.
the 1st year in chiang-mai, i explored so many restaurants…especially the fancy ones. some days i would just walk down to a coffee shop and spent my luxurious hours reading and relaxing. but i guess after a while, you feel like the place becomes home to you. then you just feel like no place is better than home…even the luxuries of coffee shops like starbucks which i so love.
that is why i was so content tonight just to walk to the market, rent some movies, get some food in a plastic bag and take them all home to enjoy.
did i ever mention that mom is coming to visit?! i have been missing home a lot this past week. and God is just good to bring home to me. 🙂 although it would have been great if i could go there. but january it is…i will eventually get to see my new home!
the weather here is cool during early morning and at night. i hope it gets cold soon because i want to wear a jacket to work. 🙂 it gives me an excuse to not be in uniform. hahaha. well, i will still have to wear the blue shirt (compassion color) and black skirt…but on top of my shirt will be something different. something out of “the blue”…out of routines.
the moon is more calm tonight. it was bright and glorious the past week as it was the full moon. but tonight it looks more serene…and a little mysterious with 1/4 of it hidden under the dark.
i have got cheese cake in the fridge. and a bag of peanut butter m&m. mmmm….indulgences over the weekend sound perfect!
sometimes we just need to let go and have some fun.
