the joys ..

Simple crafts at home,the christmassy set ups,some old pine cones,the red cushion made from mopping cloth, the blue mittens,the white flowers and plumerias that add to the joy of a winter day...

December baking is on its way,cherries,preserves ,fruit cocktails and cocoa ,almonds and pistachios are waiting to be in a cake...

these wintery days....

The weather is chill these days and we have been enjoying it in the comfort of the home.The morning teas ,the rajais and warm sun in the terrace and the subtle light that descends into the living room.Even in the chillness,I open the balcony to invite the light in.I usually go on a late morning walk and bring back the blue flowers.The blues that filled the urulis and the evening glow in the balcony and the chillness is on its way back..

the winterlist of holidays...
tea and the cacti

Waking up from an afternoon nap and this is what i saw..wonderful

Pure magic

Lovely Morning and Ponmudi

Having spent a peaceful night among the hills,we woke up to a lovely morning .I hoped that we would be able to see the sunrise,but alas if theren't much of clouds.It was too cloudy and misty and cold as it rained the whole night.The earth was wet and we could feel the wetness and the cold creeping through was wonderful...The morning chai  was hot and it kept us warm.Some small yellow hill flowers and plumeria from my morning walk.A small rivulet on the way that made all of us playful and so many photographs made my day..




These made my day and i hope they made yours too...These made my days definitely brighter and put me in a good mood

An evening in Ponmudi

 A Heavenly hill station and some treasured memories.A journey made during the last monsoons,last year when we went to the South.There were a treasure trove of images after the trip and till date couldn't finalise which ones were the better among  them.
Ponmudi,actually being near to our home,there isn't any need for a days stay there,but we stayed there to see the early sunrise.It was monsoon time and we generally couldn't guess the weather changing rapidly there from rainy into cloudy.. We stayed at "Golden Peak" the only hotel in the lower sanatorium.Theres an upper sanatorium also,where the hills drop down into valleys at all sides and the view is just amazing if there isnt much clouds.I am much of a nature lover ,but trying my hand at nature photography was for the first time.I hope the images will weave the story for my readers..

winding paths and the hairpin bends
dieties on the road
roadside prayers 

interesting small temples

almost reached the lower sanatorium

Hotel Golden Peak 

Small huts on the hill
a quick trip to the upper sanatorium

the view on the way

a lonely tree

rolling clouds,making their way for rain
way too windy,my little one and my dupatta
connectivity and hills

the light,my world filling light,in awe

i saw the rainbow and jumped in sheer joy

mists gathering on to the hotel side

rolling mists getting covered outside the room
 the most beautiful and the most wonderful view  

There were so many wonderful things that caught my eyes today.All things that i loved came down on earth a day for me.It happened as though I had a secret desire and the wish came true ..was it because i passionately wished for it..You all have a good nights sleep till i tell you what happened the next day...
