I do not know why I am having a hard time knowing what to write today. I have plenty to write about this week, but choosing just one thing is not working for my brain. Maybe it is the fact that for some reason, Zoë woke up two times last night thinking it was morning and wanting to play, and I am tired. Maybe it is because I am over-thinking it. Maybe it’s because it is raining outside and that automatically makes me lazier. Where are you sunshine!?!?
excuses reasons aside, I have decided to do what is easiest for me and just tell you what is new and exciting in my life here in Taipei. Why choose one subject, when I can inundate enlighten you with everything I have been enjoying!
Three weeks ago I started attending Bible Study Fellowship here in Taipei. I joined the study back in California a couple of years ago, and have loved the time with other women of faith, as well as the opportunity to learn more about my God and His Word. The current study is of the book of Matthew and so far I am finding it fascinating. It is such a trip for me to be able to continue participating in BSF while I am here in Taipei.
This week is the Mid-Autumn Festival here in Taiwan, so everyone has a four day weekend starting tomorrow. This doesn’t really affect Chad and I, except that more of our friends are available to hang out. Hooray!
I am very excited for tomorrow night because we are going to have dinner with a family that I have been wanting to see since we arrived here. I gave Angela and Andy private english lessons when we lived here five years ago and grew close with their whole family. I have kept in contact with them through Facebook and I am ecstatic to be able to see them again!
Chad and I have been scouring the internet to find an inexpensive flight to get to Thailand. It turns out the price of flights to Bangkok have increased since we were here last, who would have thought… Anyways, I am getting excited to be in Thailand again. Mostly, I am drooling in anticipation of the excellent food there… and of course the beauty of the landscape, the friendly locals, and the wonderful shopping are a plus, too. Food always comes first, am I right?
Despite my anticipation for what is to come, I will be sad to leave our friends and everything else that makes Taiwan so wonderful. But I have another month here to enjoy, so I am taking every advantage. I wonder if Chad would agree that I should have girls nights out every other night? Hmmm…
We need your help! We are considering Hua Hin, Thailand for a place to settle for a few months. Have any of you been there before, or know someone that has? I have read up on it on the internet, but getting information from someone you know is worth its weight in gold! Or if there is anywhere else that you think is a must-see please leave a comment and let us know why! Thanks!
