carpenters and the rain...

* I am not talking about me with a cup of chai on a rainy day with 'The Carpenters' singing rainy days and mondays always get me down... well, actually they do:-(
* I am talking about the kinds armed with saws, polish, hammer, nails...

* the ones for whom we wait with bated breath.
* the ones who tranform our homes into a dream.
* scrap, scrub, hammer, hammer, bang, to my ears.
* but, hey wait...did I hear pitter-patter too?

* "Amma, polish can't be done, no sun, won't dry"
* my dreams get postponed to another weekend.
* I grab my camera and shoot the weapons abandoned due to the rains.
* BTW, blocks of wood make interesting coasters;-)

the days gone by...

I have been missing-in-action for a while ~ Sorry.
Lots of things have been happening here~
* We moved into our new home last month.
* Our previous home was featured in BBC Good Homes, India Edition. Thanks!
* Kindness in many forms touched my heart.
* An Autumn Mouse traveled all the way from Poland to have hot 'chai' with me.
* Another birthday passed by.
* Lots of dreams and aspirations.
* Loads of hard work.
* 'Love in the time of Cholera' was finally finished and moved to the bookshelf.
* I promise to be more active in this space. So do drop by:-)
Have a great day!
