recently

Some sights from the past week. Since the weather has morphed into the most amazing weather ever, we've been trying to spend more time outside. It's such a change from the claustrophobic and oppressive heat and humidity of the summer.  And wow, the light has become so beautiful again. Inside the house, it's warm and soft, inviting and captivating. Outside, it's enchanting and makes everything glow.

The gulmohars trees are growing fast, and some are even flowering. I love this curved glass building and have taken many shots of it. I never seem to tire of it, especially in the wonderful evening light.

A little art in E's room. I made this years ago, before I had even thought of a baby, but last year I used this and another similar one (which is now on the opposite wall) as Christmas decorations, and I thought they would be perfect for her room. Back then, she still was in our room, so I hadn't really bothered with doing up her room for her after we moved into this apt. It's not the greatest or most creative art, but I really wanted something I had made to be in her room.

Not to be outdone by the evening light, here's some morning sunshine on the living room table. I love how it streams into the room, warm instead of blindingly bright as it was in the summer. We've had several foggy mornings, but this morning, I had the windows open and it even got chilly inside!

Shalini said...

Thanks Shilpa. The fruit bowl is from our trip to Bangkok many eons ago. It's mango wood apparently.

Thanks Vineeta. I hadn't thought of that one as something that I would print out....that's why it's so great to get opinions on it. Now, you've really made me look at it again :-)
