Monday Montage: Thailand Birthday

By Chad M.

Stepping into the shoes of my illustrious wife is always daunting. She keeps up the blog with devotion and drive, and sticks to the schedule with a perseverance I can only admire. I am the erratic one. The “this is a good idea” for a moment sort of man. Check out my blog. I recently deleted all content, not that there was much, and most of what was there was an excuse for not writing more… I don’t plan, schedule, or do “lists.”

That being said, you know things are dire if I am keeping up this blog when Jenny simply can’t. We’ve had our off days before, and I wrote my excuses for her, and then it was Britain’s fault, but this time it is due to illness. Yes, sickness has struck the Mitchell household. After several plane rides, a Thailand birthday, and rainy days, Jenny and Zoë’s immune systems have yielded to the bug.

Don’t worry, they are all right, the doctor checked them for anything serious and all seems okay… but in the meantime you will have to put up with my humble offerings on the Monday Montage.

Without any further ado, here they are:

Last day in London. Zoë and Me. (We even have lightsabers in real life.)

Finally back in the land of good food and sun... and she gets sick... :(

The food didn't make us sick... It is ideal!

    Very arty sunglasses shot!

    Jenny, get well soon! Not that we don’t like Chad’s blogging, but being sick is just not cool.

      Thanks for the props! I do what I can when the wife is unavailable. 🙂 She is on the mend… but we are thinking of collaborating more often on the blog so it is less of a surprise when I am here! 🙂

    I am sorry Jenny and Zoe are sick! Tell them to get well soon! Happy Birthday to the Beautiful Zoe! I am just reading your book description on Amazon. Wow a published author, congratulations! Your book sounds really exciting! I have only published articles in scientific journals 🙁 xoxo Fanni

      Thank you for the well wishes and b’day wishes! And thank you for looking up my book! Getting published in scientific journals sounds far more impressive to be honest… 🙂

    Poor things! Hope they get better soon! That dish looks yummy! Anything with shrimp is my weakness.

      Shrimp… I love them… At one time I almost got sick of them living in Asia because in Taiwan they make you peel your own… I was too lazy… 🙂

      Thank you! I think I may have to eat it again today… Craving fresh Thai food after being stuck in the house for days!

    Great pictures! Get well greetings and a birthday greeting, too! I agree with someone else, the photo of the plate of food made me so hungry! Lovely food! Thanks for the Monday Montage, and I hope the sun makes everyone healthier quickly!
