The things I see - Sukhothai, Thailand

 ...a waitress placing the daily offerings on the restaurants two shrines.

First she put a bowl of fresh pineapple chunks in front of the little golden statue.  She then gave it a glass of water, from a bottle, not the tap. After came two bouquets of fresh flowers in porcelain vases and garlands of flowers to hang from the shrine.  She finished with a fistful of burning incense before kneeling to pray and doing the same for the smaller shrine to the right.

How about you? Did you see anything out of your ordinary?

My ordinary was pretty ordinary. This, however, is beautiful.

I am really really hoping that all the snow and ice is not the new ordinary. >:-(

Is it Thailand where red is such a prominent color? I do so love red.

Re red: I've seen lots of pink, actually. And the monks here were very vibrant orange.

I suppose it would depend on what you consider ordinary.I saw a child's face light up with joy as her grandfather unwrapped a chocolate heart for her during church today.

We put out bowls of moistened raisins for ladybugs, and this evening a ladybug was circling around the rim preparing to go in for a raisin.

Oh nifty! Where'd you learn to do that for ladybugs?

Ben learned it from a friend at his lab, who had it from a biologist.
