Friendship has truly sustained me in being able to live in Asia for all of these years. As I talked about in a previous post (click here to read “The best and worst of my life in Asia”), I love being able to “do life” with wonderful people over here. The people that come and go from here are a special group. Between my local Asian friends I have made and the Americans, I am blessed to live and learn from so many wonderful people.
It is also a particular joy to be able to see many of the expat children grow up while living overseas here in Asia. Two of my favorites of all time live in the same complex as I do right now. Noah Littlepage (see video above and pic below) will be 2 years old in two months and Maddox Musgrove (see pic below) will be 2 in the fall.
Sundays are typically pretty laid back this year. In years past, I have had to travel on many weekends, but this year I am able to stay home most of the time. This has been
a wonderful blessing. As a result, Sundays have taken on a certain pattern this year.
After some stuff in the mornings, most of the Americans living here will get a lunch together. Most of the time it will be at a random local restaurant, but today we hit up sushi. There is an amazing Japanese restaurant that has recently opened up. It is tremendous.
On the way back, I took the above video of Noah riding on the back of his father’s (Scott Littlepage) motorbike. I was driving mine, so the camera angle was pretty rough. Probably not the safest thing I can do! Anyway, I love seeing Noah in his seat, so I wanted to get a quick video of it.
The afternoons are pretty random. Sometimes we study language and other times we get outside and play football or tennis or something.
In the evenings, we have started a new tradition called “Meat Sundays”. There is very little beef served over here, so we have tried to dedicate Sunday nights to that of meat consumption. It is a celebration of all things meat. . . and friendship.
We gather over at Maddox’s house. His Dad and Mom (Chris and Ann Marie Musgrove) grill out whatever meat we can pull together. We eat and talk and maybe watch a TV show or two that we have downloaded from the previous week.
Tonight we enjoyed some steaks, burger patties, a few chicken wings, and other stuff we scrapped together. For entertainment, we watched a few episodes of “Community”. Yet another successful Meat Sunday!
Anyway, I really do love Sundays this year, so I thought I would share this one with you.
Have a great week!
