Monday Montage: Please Hold…

This week we have been going over and over what our future plans may be, and the only answer we can conclude at the moment is that we have to hold on. I feel like I have gotten stuck in travel voicemail this week that is telling me, “please hold… and the answers will be given to you when God is ready”. We have to wait and see.  And be patient… which is my least normal way to be. Yep, that’s right, I am extremely a little impatient. Travel (and motherhood for that matter) have taught me to be more flexible, to be more positive, and maybe even to be more fun-loving, but I am still working on the patience thing.

I have been sitting and trying not to tap my toes waiting for some clear direction on where we should go next (or if we should stay). Meanwhile, we have been making the most of  our “time left” if that is what this time turns out to be. Which means I actually have more than a few photos to share with you today! Although I am sure that you all wanted to see some more gates, am I right? Well if you really want to see the gates, you can look at them again in my post from last week. This week for my Monday Montage, there are no gates included… just some of the beautiful and humorous things I love about this stunning country. I love Thailand.

A new beach that a Thai friend took us to. It's gorgeous and calm. A great place to take toddlers. It is near Cape Panwah, but I am do not know the beach name. It is primarily a locals beach. What a find!

Ramubtan and Mangosteen fruit is everywhere in Phuket right now. There is so much that people are pretty much just giving them away. They are so delicious!

I never knew that a frying pan could be "Fashion,  Comfortable, Healthy". Only in Thailand I guess.

Mojitos for 50 baht ($1.50 USD)  at the Weekend Market in Phuket Town. Yummy!

This is what the Weekend Market looks like in a deluge during the rainy season. Good thing it is hot enough so that one's clothing dries immediately.

I believe that this Boot's Pharmacy sign means to read "Winter flu shot" but I think that this signage is actually more correct in its description.

We had dinner in this really cool Sala the other night. I want one!

    I too am anxious about what the future holds for my family. I am at “that” point where I am no longer challenged with my job. Shh don’t tell my boss. It’s too constricting. Sad, I know. Sigh.
    I know those fruits! Only we call the hairy ones Rambutan. 🙂 Love them! And yes, I’d like a Sala too!

      Yes, the hairy ones are rambutan. Wait did I put the wrong name? Now I have to check. The purple ones are mangosteen.
      Also you should probably just quit and write full time because your blog is awesome. That’s my opinion 🙂 good luck with the future (and if we come to the Philippines we are definitely coming to Cebu! I think a meet up would be awesome!)

        If only the advertisers think the same! LMAO YES! A meet up would be so much fun! Yay, I’m getting excited thinking about it!

    Sending you energy for the patience you need. I enjoyed another glimpse of Thailand while we can. 🙂

      Lol! I was going to say the same thing! I would love to try the mangosteen as well. Over here and l think in most of Europe, the shots are actually called jabs. Our dogs just got their rabies jabs. First time l heard it, l laughed, because it is more accurate isn’t it? Good luck with everything.

    I need to work on my patience too! 🙂 Thanks for sharing your photos! That flu shot sign is interesting … my kids would agree with that translation.

    I understand how you feel about no clear directions. I am looking forward to your travels or stay in whatever country you decided in future. Life is never boring with toddlers around and I am sure you will be happy no matter which part of the world you are in 🙂

    You’re not alone in your wait! We are also listening to the same “please hold… and the answers will be given to you when God is ready” message :). I’ve always wanted to try Mangosteen – how does it taste??

    • andthreetogo

      It’s a little like a lychee, but sweeter. It’s a little slimy sometimes but still delicious!

        Slimy but delicious – ha! Have to try it!

    Love the “Salah”(?) so cute! I also loved the Mangosteen you introduced me too when there. Nothing as tasty as fresh fruit right off the try in my book! Glad your enjoying the “moments” while waiting for direction.

      Isn’t it pretty? I want one. 🙂
      Thanks mom!

    DON’T TELL ME I’VE BEEN USING UNFASHIONABLE FRYPANS?!

      I know! I had an existential crisis because I realized that my cook ware has been so unfashionable. Now that I know I am glad that I can share the knowledge I have gleamed from my time here in Thailand 😉

        I will throw everything in the bin tomorrow and start anew.

        And then I suppose I’ll have to do it all again next “season”.

        OMG – HOW OFTEN DO COOKWARE FASHIONS ROTATE??

          Oh no! I didn’t even think of that! I will have to start setting aside money in our budget!

    Mojitos for $1.50? Look no further!
    Seriously though, you’ll know when it’s time to move on, if everywhere else makes you happier than where you are now.
    It’s never easy making a move, but I’m sure you’ll give it your best, whatever you decide. 🙂

      Thanks! And the mojitos will make the decisions smoother right haha!
