Shortly after noon, daughter took a lunch break and we decided to order Thai food from our favorite local Thai restaurant. They were a tiny little "hole in the wall" place with a few tables set outside when I first moved into this neighborhood, but they had the best beef fried rice, ever. Over the years, they expanded their restaurant a little bit - now there is a roof overhang where the tables are placed, but they are still located in the same place and they still make some of the best Thai food, around! We ordered some of our favorites over the phone and went to pick up the order.
Except, there's some road construction going on on my road, from neighbor T's house to the top of the lane. Fortunately, the road in front of my house could be driven on, provided I could leave my driveway!
|Yes, yet another construction vehicle blocking my driveway!|
I spoke to one of the construction guys and he raised the skids so I could pull out of my drive way! I don't know why he couldn't have parked with the skids raised, but, I guess it was easier for them to have the skids down.
Anyway, I was able to go with daughter to pick up our lunch:
|Spicy Glass Noodle Salad, with chicken and shrimp|
|Even spicier Drunken Noodles with chicken|
|Beef fried rice|
These pictures were taken after daughter had served herself! As you can see, the containers were still almost full! We had leftovers for dinner and there's still enough for at least another couple of meals for us.
In the afternoon, daughter continued to work and I took a nap!
Later, after we had tea, we went to the mall to do some shopping for shoes for us both to wear with our saris to the weddings and for a couple of outfits for daughter.
I bought a pair of flat, gold colored shoes for myself:
Daughter found a pair of high heeled strappy sandals:
Today, I am grateful for:
- Insurance called back saying the billing has been taken care of and I don't need to pay it
- Dancer seems to have recovered from his earlier distress
- Having daughter home, even if she has to work
- Being able to take some vacation time off to enjoy being home when daughter is home
- Afternoon naps!
How was your Thursday? Did you do anything to celebrate the solstice? Do you like Thai food?
