Around the house

Scenes from around the house. Simple things that make me smile, sweet treats to eat, new and old corners to explore and soft light to enjoy as it wanders across the rooms.

A little plant growing in water in the window. Took this early one morning, just after sunrise. Yes, I've been seeing the sunrise almost every day. And there's good and bad in that!

Soft evening light in the living room. Interestingly, this is not direct light, but it is actually reflected off the glass facade of a nearby building :-))

Playing with the camera.....a pretty border and packets of stuff beyond. Isn't it maddening how each year, we seem to accumulate more stuff...and not just the pretty-things-to-display stuff, but the boring-paperwork stuff.

A favorite little corner, where I spend my quiet time, my me-time with some green tea and a cherry surprise from the local bakery. Do you have such a spot too?

Sunlight coming in through the window is always a welcome sight.

I don't have a me corner but feel like I need one after seeing yours. Or maybe I just need the cherry treat.

Shalini said...

Thanks Anu! Need to have such a place to get away, doesn't one!

Pingos do Ceu, thank you!

Haddock, oh yes, it definitely is!

Emma, ha ha, yes a cherry treat always makes everything better :-)
