Raining Cats and Dogs..

Its been raining incessantly since the last two days…This morning also ,the sky was all cloudy and the rain showed no sign of relenting.I read in the morning newspaper that this kind of rainfall was abnormal in the city at this time of the year.I switched on the computer to put up my FB message and lo and behold…..a loud CRASHhh.The system is right next to my bedroom window and I saw a huge Banyan tree on the other side of the boundary wall come crashing down into my garden breaking all barriers and taking the wall, fence,pots et all..I shrieked in horror expecting the tree to probably break the windows and the walls.IT was that huge.In an instant ,all the neighbours,umbrellas in hand, had gathered to assess the extent of the damage despite the pouring rains.I am yet to realise the actual damage done to my garden but my view of the rains has been blocked by the fallen tree.

This is what we did …

…last summer.It feels good to be back after a rather long hiatus.Lots of things to share and lots to catch up on.We spent our summer break with the hubby in Assam.No ,it was quite peaceful out there at that time with none of the drama that has suddenly gripped the state.

It was a nice and carefree break sans planning and itineraries.We could get up when we wanted to and munch about the whole day long.The true essence of summer holidays….The best thing was that we managed to escape the extreme heat of  the North and instead enjoyed the monsoons of the North-East.Although mainly confined indoors,we took out time for a short vacation to the neighbouring state Meghalaya and did a lot of things with Munch and Perk, which we otherwise never get time for,due to our busy schedules.Munch andI  utilized our afternoons in making something or the other while the father and the younger one slept.

These are the coasters we made through paper coiling which Munch had picked up in the summer camp just before leaving.The colourful table mats in the background are also something we created by sponging different coloured paints.

This napkin holder was created out of popsicle sticks.She also painted some grass and flowers on them.

We turned this piece of bamboo into a spoon and fork holder for the dining table.

And here are some bamboo pots which I painted.

And then these pebbles which the kids loved painting..

This is a picture frame made with handmade paper sheets I picked up while shopping for all the paint and stuff.

Mpre  about the fun we had in my next post…till then…enjoy and have a nice day.
