the little things of daily life

I keep thinking that I need to write more about the little things, after all, that's what I like to read on other blogs. The simple things that make up our days, the mundane, the repetitive, even the boring. So here are some photos of the little things in my life lately.

Little plants giving out roots in water. So delighted with this development, since I thought it happened only with Money plants...Scindapsus. A week ago, when E woke up early-early and refused to go to sleep, I took her for a walk so that I could pluck some more of these.

Little birds hanging around the hallway. I've had these for ages, but just never got around to hanging them. I actually didn't realize they were in a mobile kind of format. I had thought they would just be hanging on a single string, so was pleasantly surprised when I opened the packet. This spot gets a draft of air from the ac so the birds are always gently moving, which amuses E quite a bit.

I love to play with her toys too! I especially love arranging them in the window to inspire her to do different things. Just wish the light wasn't so harsh.

I love the bird mobile! Are the birds made of fabric or wood, or what?

Shalini said...

Ramesh, thanks so much!

Val, not sure what they are made of, but it's very light and the surface is covered in feathers, so it's very realistic. My ma-in-law got them from the Surajkund Mela in Delhi, which takes place every year in February.
