We haven’t bought a TV yet since we moved into the family house.(The house came empty..$ ouch!)
But between preparing to have a baby, building our own house, La finishing up 8 years of Art school and myself finishing another level of Montessori studies along with keeping up with my herbal studies and day to day working, I don’t think we've really missed having one.
When we do have free time, it often leads to a project. This is the latest.
La saw a garden shop locally selling these Nam Tok (waterfalls) recently. He went back a few days later and took photos then proceeded to come home and decide he could do it for a lot less. Besides, anyway for him to have more little fish ponds he’s up for. He spent the next week of late afternoons sifting cement, building, rebuilding, breaking brick and creating this water fall.
Then we went to a fish supply store and for 500baht (about 15USD) bought the pump and filter. We added fish from another little fish pond we have and transplanted some baby papyrus from another. So, all in all the project cost us under 30USD (1000baht).
It’s quite relaxing on the hot nights we are having now to sit outside with a glass of tea and listen to the water babble and watch the fish swim.
Although, being about 98F daily here now I wish it was big enough for me to swim in too. J
