I seldom have breakfast at home unless I'm not going to work then I either go have my morning meal in the nearest restaurants near where I live. I have so much time this term and I often go to this house just a few steps from my home for breakfast. The old lady maybe of eighty years old prepares the food and the husband assists as getting the plates and wash them at a time. He also serves the customers preparing glasses with ice and he often goes in and out of the house for the plates putting them back to the rack after he finishes washing about three or four plates. He also brings the rice cooker for rice refill on the display as usually more customers come in.
One thing I like in this place is its simplicity. It feels like you are in a family and being prepared for a meal. The place is nice, this old couple opens their gate and have the tables in their front yard. While you're eating you can hear the AM radio station being played by a seemingly old radio at the same time you can enjoy watching their plants in the other side of the yard and some fishes in different pots. Of course the old couple are also very friendly. As observed, the Thais are quite as friendly as the Filipinos and I can observe that they're basically the same in terms of dealing with neighbors.
Today was kinda different one for me, in the past days I used to sit facing the other yard but I had the other direction today, not by choice though but availability. As I had my soup and spicy pork dish I noticed this one very thing hanging on the post.
It's a normal calendar with marks on it. The couple I supposed the man marked the finish dates making one find it easier to distinguish the exact date of the day. I am amazed seeing the marker tied right in front of the calendar. On one hand, I realized that it's not getting interesting for me to check the dates anymore these times. I used to have major plans for this year and sadly these I have to discard. I'm an organizer person I can't live a day without checking my itineraries however, lately I start disliking looking at it. Not that I hate the calendar but I think it doesn't feel any better when I know that whatever I do, these days come to pass and in my end these are all wasted. On the other hand, I don't like pressures so I choose to go with the flow, slow down, plan things out and see how things go in the coming days.
Time flies so quickly, loving it or not, it just is.
