Bike into Phon Thong for a few more bits and pieces for the wedding. An old lady who sells sweet fried caramel things at the market appears today for the first time since we have been back here. She has been on holiday with family down south but we buy some from her to eat with our coffee when we get back to the house.
Yet another lazy day due to congestion and lack of energy amongst other things.
Do manage to get out to the farm late afternoon and find that all the earth moving gear has gone although they are by no means finished. Water the trees and extract one more fish from the trap. There cant be many left in the pond now.
I had been thinking what a waste it was that all the trees that have been cut down so that the soil can be excavated were just lying around. Jai spoke with one of the village 'woodsmen' who is going to send a team out to the farm tomorrow - well, maybe tomorrow ? They are going to saw them up into roof timbers and floor boards for the new farm shelter that we will need someday. This has been on the cards for about 3 years now and we are just waiting for Jai's brother Sai to move his old house but he is always too busy sleeping in front of the TV or recovering from the previous nights hangover !
