My June 2014

The first half of the year is gone. Went by very fast. It was a super busy month for me with activities in Javi's school and several friends visiting Bangkok. Busy is good. 

Started June keen on living a healthy life by exercising and eating healthy. Well, I ended the month regularly exercising. The healthy eating part was a struggle. I was calorie counting, then stress and PMS came and my EQ was too low to log my calorie intake. 

This is my 27th month joining Fat Mum Slim's Photo-A-Day challenge. I am not tired of it. It's a good mental and photography exercise for me. I get to document my days this way.

And here's how my June went:

1. Joy (The smile of a four-year old who just jumped on the bed.)
2. Doing (Play time for my two boys. I love how they really play with each other. Especially when I need to do something like cook our dinner.)
3. Family (My family, in Coke can version.)
4. Ordinary (Today, we rode the train. It's a normal thing here in Bangkok. Traffic can be terrible. Train is very efficient. No rude or impatient taxi drivers.)
5. 11 o'clock (The mall just opened. Caleb and I are off to buy our monthly household supplies. I like running errands when the mall just opened. I can finish my tasks in less than an hour.)
6. Adventure (Every single day is an adventure with this little one and his big brother.) 
7. Pattern (I love polka dots!)
8. T is for... (...the Thai version of the Harry Potter series.)
9. We live here (Reflection of our apartment building on another building.) 
10. Flying (There a number of birds flying around when I took this photo. I didn't want to zoom in as it will ruin a good photo. It was a beautiul morning.) 
11. The beginning (It all begins with zero. Planning to be more active and keeping track of my movement. While I don't have Fitbit, this pedometer should work for me.) 
12. Pastel (We went to IKEA and I went gaga over these colors.)
13. Simply (Thankfully, the plastic flowers in our building lobby are now gone. A real plant is better than fake flowers.)
14. Cross ("At the cross I bow my knees. Where Your blood was shed for me. There's no greater love than this")
15. Lovely (Fresh fruits serve as great table or kitchen counter display.) 
16. In the shadows (My early morning walk to the gym) 
17. Peaceful (At this time - before sunrise - I am the only one awake. It's always a good start to a busy day when I get time alone before the boys wake up.)
18. Quirky (Our souvenir from the Siem Reap trip. Javi is scared of it but Caleb plays with it.) 
19. Habit (As much as possible I start my day with my morning cup of coffee, journal{s} and quiet time.) 
20. Yay! (It's finally the weekend)
21. Here I am (At my favorite xiao long bao place {Din Tai Fung}. Really yummy!
22. Growing (We attended a birthday party of my eldest son's classmate. These kids are growing up so fast.)
23. In this moment (My coffee times are precious. Even if I just sit in a coffee shop and think about nothing.)
24. What June looks like (Lots of early mornings for June) 
25. Sun flare (It was very cloudy the whole of yesterday. There was only a short glimpse of the sun and all I could see was clouds.) 
26. Dreaming (A trip to the Filipino store with a very low EQ resulted to this. Now, I am dreaming I can eat all these without gaining a pound. Aack!)
27. Loving (My latest shopping finds: cute gift bags and something for the nails.) 
28. Bed (It has been a busy and productive week. I look forward to good night's sleep and a relaxing Sunday.)
29. Delight (Seeing them always this close warms this momma's heart.)
30. The end  (We had a staycation of sorts. The husband was working though. Time to head home.)

How was June for you?
