October 21--Flight deck

Malida is on her way back to Thailand for three weeks to visit friends and family, so it's just me and the cats for a while. Her plane left at 1 am, and is still on its way. She will land in Taiwan in a couple of hours, then take a flight to Bangkok.

She was pretty excited about leaving, though stopped repacking her bags. They weighed out at just under 50 pounds each, for a total of about 100 pounds worth of stuff going back to Thailand with her. Lots of gifts, candy, old clothes, etc. I love walking through the village and seeing my old shirts.

What did she want as her last meal before leaving?

Malida and burger

"They don't have burgers like this in Thailand." she remarked.

We rested in the afternoon, then took a nice walk before we had to get ready to leave for the airport. It is a two-hour drive, and we got there about three hours before her flight left. I watched her go through security, and then drove home listening to a podcast.

Now I don't know what to do with my day.

October 22--Toe

It turned out to be just a normal sunday, sans Malida. I got up late, had coffee, did house chores. I went out to take a walk and do the shopping. Since my potassium is still low, I bought food that is high in potassium--Brussels sprouts, bananas, etc. The next critical step is to actually eat the foods high in potassium. I had a banana.

I took a walk along the creek. It was a nice day. About 70 degrees, and a little breezy. It feels like fall. I cam home and read for a while.

Malida called from Taiwan and we talked for a bit. She had a good flight. The middle seat was empty, so she was able to get some good airplane sleep. She will be getting into Bangkok in the next half hour or so and will spend about a week there with her friends. She will be there for the King's funeral, which is a big deal. She brought almost all black clothes.

Back to work tomorrow. Whatever.
