to one and all. Thanks to Swaram for sharing this video. We followed this video and made our own Ganesha for the first time this year using air dry clay. Adi was super excited. She made the head, ears, decorated and painted the idol all by herself. I emailed the picture to her class teacher as Adi wanted to show it to her. This is the first time we were trying our hands on clay and both of us were mighty happy with the end result. Had a deep sense of satisfaction when Ganesha was placed at pooja place and worshiped today morning. I didn’t make much for the platter though. It was just kesari and sundal (channa). I was scared to try the kozhukattai remembering my past
Home made Ganesha – Sculpted by Adi and Ani 🙂
Platter – pooja time
Do you see those pretty white flowers, they are from these beauties we got home two weeks back. The two beauties are decorating the living room window and backyard pathway.
Gosh! Never thought I will miss the basket mums – seeing them fills me with nostalgia and a deep longing for fall days in Houston – I need to figure out where I can get mums in Singapore – wishes for the festive session

I am in love with the basket mums esp. those 5 mins I spend in the morning to water them.. 🙂
