Good morning! I hope all of you had a gr8 weekend. The more the merrier – a Friday shopping spree, a Saturday dinner (needless to say includes cleaning and cooking and more cleaning), a Sunday photo session – to feature the first home on home Shanthi home and a little bit of lazing around – were the highlights of my weekend. How about you all?
What did I shop – I just shopped flowers and flowers and flowers and more and more of them arrived with each guest coming in :-). So I have a Spring garden inside my house.
In the middle of the hustle bustle of cooking and arranging things – my son comes in at 20:20 and tells me - mamma in 10 minutes I am going to switch off all the lights in the house for an hour honoring the Earth hour. With many guests around (some formal ones too) and a dinner to be laid out soon, all my trials pleading him to postpone or cancel went in vain. Teenager he is and as determined as one can be :-). With support from all present at sharp 20:30 he switched off all the lights . The hour that unfolded was not that scary as I thought and was actually more fun with cosy lighting in every nook and corner and friends helping in the dark. Here are some pictures from the Earth hour at home Shanthi home :-)
As every coin has 2 sides, you will also find different views for Earth hour. But what it brought back home to us was a little bit more conscious awareness of the environmental issues, a genuine thought and appreciation for all those people in Japan and elsewhere in the world who are without the basic supplies for days at stretch.
coming to party treats - I forgot to take the snaps in right time and so here are some left overs :-) just on those I could get my camera on......
Prachi - here are the golgappa shots :-). A great hit.
Have nice week ahead
