Happy New Year !

To a new beginning ! The Thai new year is 2555 which is read ” song ha-ha-ha “. I have a feeling this will be an exceptionally  happy funny year.

I’ve been sewing like crazy, making gifts. Luckily, I’ll be meeting my friends later this week so I still have enough time !

We took the kids up to the mountains and stayed at a cowboy resort called Panther Creek. It looks like this :

Complete with trains, teepees, cowboys , and Indians. The kids were pretty excited.

Our bedroom view looks really pretty, after I ran the photos thru several filters ( heheee ). So I’ll be remembering our dried out corn field like this :

Picture perfecto ! The weather went back to normal hot , but that didn’t stop me from wearing my scooditen ( scarf+hoody+mitten).

I’ve added bear ears to match the bear paws mittens. This is what I’m sewing  for my friends, with  regular hoods and pockets , of course.

We also went to a cattle ranch which belongs to the parents of my kid’s friend. We saw lots of milk cows.

The kids ran around and had a great time on a mountain of hay stacks :

and make friends with a stray dog. I think she is giving him a massage.

We also went to Palio , a Italian-style village mall. There were too many people there.

So we escaped to one of the many vineyards at Khao Yai  🙂

The grapes are ready to harvest mid January. They look so yummy !

Next post coming soon. Expect water buffaloes.
