Not too many photos this week.
But I did bake Orange Cardamom teabread
to enjoy for breakfast in bed.

And there were a few other comforts too:
peanut butter & tea, flowers fresh from the market…

Scenes From My Weekend

I spent the weekend at work in Chiang Rai.
There were quiet mornings before waking,
and hazy skies from seasonal burning.
Flowers for our kids graduating
and balloons.
I taught a workshop on self-esteem and ended it with
a showing of Brave, because our kids need to see more examples
of strong women in media.
But then I see these kids who succeed
despite challenges other children across the world can scarcely imagine
and I think there are plenty of strong women
right here.

Scenes From My Weekend

Fresh mango lassi on a day spent playing hooky
Writing again; fun surprises in store for the kids at SOLD
Baking turtle thumbprint cookies
at the hubby’s request for “awesome cookies”
using a handwritten recipe passed down from his mom.

Scenes From My Weekend

Starting the morning with yoga,
Dot standing guard.
Followed with a cup of rooibos
And a late afternoon swim.
Dinner at a favorite restaurant
Fusion & cocktails – but no cocktails for me.
I had the roasted duck curry,
while Toby enjoyed oyster shooters
wrapped in salmon with a lemongrass-chili sauce.

Scenes From My Weekend

Fresh cut fruit & veggies
And summer pasta salad
with bell peppers, arugula, & parmesan
To enjoy poolside on a hot, hot day.
And when hot day turned to stormy night…

…a cup of rooibos tea and a book.

…and I looked down into the eyes of our 5- and 6-year-olds
and couldn’t comprehend the violence…

I dedicate these photos of Christmas and sunsets to those who shall not witness another Christmas or another sunset. In their honor, we must remember that which is most precious. Let the rest of us hold our loved ones close and dear this holiday season.

Let us each be the light in the darkness.

Scenes From My Weekend

You might say I’ve gotten into the Christmas spirit.

It started with a little Sufjan Stevens and prettying some jars for candles.

And then there were the paper trees.

Then, in between gift wrapping and tree trimming, there were bird seed ornaments.

And possibly even some cheesy herb biscuits. (Because I was hungry and all I had in the house was Bisquick, basil, and the last of the parmesan.)

Okay, maybe that’s not so Christmas-y.

But…paper trees!

I might have even infected this guy with the holiday spirit.

Maybe.

Have you caught the holiday bug yet?

a weekend spent baking Christmas cookies and
making Christmas crafts with the kids at my work

(the photo of me writing wasn’t taken by me

that is the talent of Mr. Tawee Donchai)
