I Live Here
The other day, my friend Jean asked me for pictures of where I live. I realize I wrote that I planned on moving in, but have not posted pictures since I moved in my house. Here is where I live:
505 Easy Peacy – written by my Thai landlady
I live about 10 minutes outside the city, 15 minutes from the old city of Chiang Mai to the south near Hang Dong.
Guest room that has a brand new mattress and closet. Garden and rice field view. Come visit!!
Guest bathroom with tile floors that have a separating wall so the shower water doesn’t get all over the whole bathroom floor.
yoga/meditation room with view of rice field
Master bathroom with tile floors that have a separating wall so the shower water doesn’t get all over the whole bathroom floor – mentioned again as this is unusual in Thailand.
I didn’t like the stark white walls everywhere, so this was a temporary fix…
…but painting the wall and decorating made it better.
My favorite room in the house is the master bedroom, its purple decorative walls and rice field view…
…decorating to make it feel like my home
The fish pond in the front yard.
Entertaining Thai style in the front garden amongst the thai herbs, fan palm, plumeria, banana and mango trees.
Undoubtedly my favorite part of my house is the rice field view. Here are a few of the many pictures I’ve taken, as it’s a constantly changing landscape:
day after moving in view, Jan 7 before the rice was planted
Jan 29 sunset from my back porch
Egret in January
back when the rice was short I enjoyed watching the birds fishing Feb 5
Early February view from back porch
February 15 sunset view
The eventual greening of the rice and bird life make it a great place to sit and watch nature.
Everyday I wake up and feel fortunate that I live in this beautiful place. More gratitude to Thailand and its beauty.
