My fingers are bloody... at least, that's how they feel.... sort of like hamburger... no.... sausage.... no.... ah yes... Steak Tartar! But the music was worth it. I really shouldn't have not played for the few months prior to the move. I can't believe how quickly my fingers softened up!

Right now she's in a hotel somewhere in Shanghai, China. She was supposed to be back tonight but the last leg of her flight got canceled and she has to pull an overnight.

But I guess that how it is in nature too; the male makes an attractive nest to draw in the females. I'm more of a decorator than she is anyway. She's more than content to leave the walls bare, have no decorations on shelves, etc. I'm the one who fills up the spaces with souvenirs 'I' buy when we travel. The most I can remember her buying when we are off somewhere is a T-shirt... I'm the one who looks for 'native crafts' etc.

Now, a before-bed cup of "Hot Water."

Hey, did anyone catch the intro for the new 'designer' water called '90H20' and selling for $14 a bottle. And I'm sure they will sell to a LOT of people! I will NOT be one of them. I don't need to buy the Aqua version of the Emperor's New Clothes...

You've got to be kidding, right? I truly do not understand why anyone would buy. Certainly I'm with you and won't be one of them.

Tea #3. Then a quick trip to some stores while my wife and daughter are out.

I have no idea what I'm making for dinner.

Good morning, everyone! There is nothing that makes a house more of a home than some good growing greenery, bringing the outside together with the inside. Today's the day to start my green stuff growing. Really turn this place into a home!

07:15 I've already filled my mug twice with Twining's "English Breakfast" tea, and am thinking about getting dressed and going downstairs to see the food lady. I've seen the sunrise, drank some tea... now it's time fo food!

God, I wish I were... I always enjoyed seeing the people in France drinking "Saratoga Springs" bottled water, then going to Saratoga Springs, and seeing the people there drinking "Evian" bottled water... People will complain about spending $3.50 for a gallon of gasoline, but gladly shell out $2 for a liter of water... and in most cases, their tap water is exactly the same as the stuff in the bottles. I have to drink bottled water in Thailand. No drinking from the tap anywhere in the Kingdom, but at least I only have to pay 50 cents for 25 liters, delivered.

It would work. You DO realize what "Evian" spelled backwards is...

And while I enjoy them both, and eat them often when I feel the urge, I need a bit more quality in my teas. I feel like I'm 'slumming' drinking the Twinings that I have until my boxes arrive. Just thinking about drinking my 'unbranded Keemun' almost has me in tears... (Pitty me, people... but I'll be strong... the boxes should be here by the end of the week. Can you see it now? A crazed Stitch tearing open 48 shipping cartons trying to find the ones with all the teas? LOL!)

Can 'unpacked' read as 'dumped on the floor?' We have a rather large dinning room, and as yet no table nor chairs. It's going to make a lovely 'dumping ground!'

On another note, when a Thai food vendor lady tells you the dish is spicy, you'd better believe the food is SPICY... I feel as if I've been chewing barbed wire, but yet I have this really big smile on my face.

Maybe one or two more mugs of tea will help. It couldn't hurt, right?

Ah, the difference between Twinnings and "unbranded Keemun". Or my Keemun Xian Zhen. Though sadly, I've had tea in expensive hotels and restaurants where Twinnings in bags would be a huge step up.

Not much tea today, just my morning Anniversary Breakfast Blend. All the rest of the day was Diet Coke or water as I tried to stay hydrated. Hit 29, and while I realize that is NOT hot compared to many places, it's very hot for here, and we're not adapted to it. Nor do we have any sort of AC to compensate either. (Plus, with a west facing house on the side of a mountain, just off the Harbour, it's a LOT hotter than that in the afternoon sun. )

The secrete is ... Thailand! And it's no secrete. Everything is ridiculously cheap here. A really big breakfast costs me about a dollar. Lunch today cost me $1.50 (USD) and only that high because I ordered two glasses of ice tea. And dinner was $1.75 Rent on the two-bedroom condo is about $350 a month, and we don't need a car so no car payments. Thais live on less than 50% of that, and live comfortably. In comparison, we are living like Kings.

Opps! Gotta go pick up my wife at the airport! Yippee! Oh... before I forget... I found a place that sells Bombay Sapphire this afternoon. I didn't buy any as I was carrying a lot of stuff at the time, but I'll be back...

Seven Sons. Packing up my tea to take home. They are making everyone take home electric devices that are not provided by the employeer. So my tea kettle goes home. I am keeping the teas that can be made at 185 and 175 and some of the blacks that I am less picky about.
