As I gear up for week 2 of the Ultimate Blogging Challenge July 2014, I am also taking time to chill with my folks and notice what’s happening around me. The painting and renovation of our building is almost complete with the finishing touches going on. The rains have arrived, heavy on some days and playing hide and seek on others.
I’ve been catching up on my reading, oh the joy of reading!
I’ve been cooking a lot, preparing stuff to preserve and make our lives easier.
I took a walk around our area and shot a few photos. No long post today. Let’s get on with the photos already!
I walk on my terrace every evening and it is a delight to be there. So grateful to have that huge space to walk and enjoy nature! I can never get enough of these kites in the sky. Sometimes they fly so low, I keep expecting them to peck my head! Yeah right!
They circle the sky for an hour in groups, moving from spot to spot around the skies. Sometimes I wish I was there, flying with them, gliding with the wind, going where it takes them.
This mynah was so brave. Kept hopping around, unconcerned, even though I got close. Friendly chap!
And these? Common sight around our area. There are several white donkeys that sedately walk around as part of our lives. I love to see the baby donkeys!
Recently they cut a few trees around our building. We were so sad. But the power of nature is so marvelous – we saw the trunks bloom – fresh green leaves have begun to appear. What a sense of hope!
This one is my favorite though! A couple of weeks back, it looked like that stump would always look bare. But now, look at those pretty green leaves!
Some plants have been planted alongside the compound wall. They’re coming along pretty well!
Did you look around your area this week? What did you notice?
What made you smile?
Have a great week ahead.
Thank you for your presence here today! ♥
