Corona, Recumb & Activities, Chok D and more…

On Sundays 7 August Siripron was a sick and she thought it came from her flue injection. On Monday before work she tested negative on Corona but after I biked she was already home again feeling not well. Tuesday went the same for her after a few hours of work. On Wednesday in the afternoon she tested positive on Corona and she had to stay 7 days at home. The same day I got also some of the symptoms and because I had to go the next Monday back to the dentist I tested myself on Friday morning and yes, I tested positive too. For Siripron the quarantine ended on Wednesday 17 August and for me it was 2 days later. For now we still are coughing a lot.

Because my Java bike isn’t 100% oke I was already thing about an indoor bike as a possibility for cycling when the bike would be in the repair shop. On Monday 8 August I ordered a recumber (NL ligfiets) indoor bike and I ordered also Garmin sensors for speed and cadence. I was very glad that the indoor bike came on Friday 12 August, so I could indoor bike during my quarantine days.

For the “virtual challenges” I am still busy with the “Conquer 2022”, the year challenge of 2.022 mile (3.255 km of cycling). This month I virtual walked & biked in Brazil (the Estrada Real), Ireland (Wild Atlantic Way), Middle Earth part 4 (The Eye of Sauron), Morroco (a Sahara Trail) and in Papua New Guinea (Kokoda Trail). I finished China (the Silk Road), Denmark (Copenhagen), Japan (Nakasendo Trail), Spain (Route of Don Quixote) and in the USA (“Pacific Crest Trail”).

Chok Dee (our dog) is not doing great. He has many tics and he also has a skin problem (I think it is scabies – NL schurft), he scratch himself until he get wounds. For now we don’t walk with him outside the garden and in the evening I brings him sticky rice because he normal eat that after walking to the house of Warunee. We bought and use now special shampoo, we use a special spray and we bought anti tics medicine.

We had in August some days with many rain but the last few days it is very warm/hot (about 36/3 degrees). For the fruits in our garden we’ve got many Lam yai (longans) and we brought them to family and neighbors. Siripron went again almost every weekend at least one day to the rice field to do maintenance.

Other things that happened:
– The family of Aon (Thanyalak, girlfriend of Benz) send us a box with Durian.
– Our car had his yearly maintenance for 6.261 THB (that is about EUR 171).
– The septic tanks of the toilets/waste water had to be emptied again.
– Friday 12 August the Queen mother had her Birthday, and that is Mamma Day.
– On Tuesday 23 August I went to Kham Ta Kla for lunch, bread and sausages.
– Siripron had a luch with some other small hospitals.
