Hello! and how are you? How was the weekend? Ours was satisfyingly busy, with a dinner party on Saturday and some much needed R&R on Sunday. Many foods were cooked and consumed, the chef received several compliments (!!) and all the samosas vanished twenty minutes into the party. :D There were flowers and children and animated conversation. All was well and a heavy food-induced coma lulled us into sweet sleep.....
Some of the graceful tulips that brightened our weekend!
These were the colors of my weekend. Also pictured is a native American warbling bird whistle - fill it with water and it produces the sweetest trilling bird song. Such a simple concept and yet, so precious! It's made of clay and it kinda, sorta, reminds me of the little mitti-birds (clay) and animals that are available during the festive season in India---my mom would pick up some brightly colored beauties each dusshera for me to play with when I was a child. Isn't it funny/cool that almost all ancient civilizations have these underlying threads and connections? Almost as if it were ingrained into our very core, into our human-ness. Perceptions of beauty, the lilt of a lullaby, language, math and science, our understanding of the earth and the universe beyond...there are more similarities than not. I wish we could all remember these before we let superficial differences color our judgement.
The new week beckons as do several projects I have committed to (some mostly to myself--but I hate to disappoint anyone, most of all myself)....so, hopefully as the week progresses some will take shape and I would be able to share pictures with you. I'm also waiting for a sunny day so I can take some pictures around home and share them....we've been dealing with overcast skies for the past few days; I hear Monday is to be bright and sunny (it is Sunday night as I write this), and I'm SO ready for the sun.
How was your weekend? Wishing you a bright, sun-shiny week ahead.....I'm linking up to Patty's weekend round-up.
