Sitting at my front door

We have some elephants sitting by our front door now. Thankfully they don't require any feeding:)...they look pretty though and I may find a small plant to sit on them one day.

Our new home

We are now in Chiang Mai and getting settled into our home we are renting here. It is fun to have a yard to work in again and watch things grow.

We have been busy shopping for necessity household items and slowly it is beginning to feel like home. I still have lots of deep cleaning I want to do especially in the kitchen and bathrooms so I can know it is clean. :)

Our shipment of boxes should arrive this week and then we have to begin unpacking. Today we took a taxi "tuk tuk" to a shopping center and looked around and priced items we still need to purchase. I am looking forward to getting the kitchen items, as it still needs a stove and oven ...then I can do some cooking :). I bought an iron today so our clothes can be taken care of because when you hang out to dry they don't look quite as nice as coming from a dryer.

Chiang Mai is in the winter season so the temp's are very pleasant for us ranging in the 70's and even a bit cooler in the evenings. This is so enjoyable and a pleasant break from the hot and humid weather in Singapore. I am told the summer months will be much warmer though so hopefully I have some fans by then to use.

I will take more pic's of the inside of the house soon so you can see it too.

Boxes ready to ship

Today was the day that our boxes were taken to be shipped to Thailand. I have included some of the activity.

Now we can pack our suitcases and will be ready to depart this Sunday. The apartment looks rather bare in this corner now with all our "stuff" taken away.
Do pray with us that the items will clear customs without delay and the boxes will arrive at our new house in Chiang Mai in a little over a week. Stay tuned for further updates when we arrive:)..........
