My neglected blog deserves some TLC
I've been busy the last week with a 7 day blogging challenge over at my blog Someday Somewhere so unfortunately this blog took a back seat and was neglected :( But it's time to give it some TLC.
I'ts been an exciting week with the America's Cup taking place in San Francisco with Team New Zealand and Team Oracle (USA) in the finals. And Team NZ is currently sitting at 6-0 so 3 more races to win for TNZ to take the cup. Every kiwi must be crossing fingers and toes. We had one heart-stopping moment this morning when the TNZ boat nearly capsized but thankfully came upright again. Go kiwis.
On Monday 9 September we celebrated Ganesh Chathurthi the birthday of Lord Ganesh. The festival lasts for approximately 10 days after which the idols are immersed into the sea. It's one of the grandest festivals and one I enjoyed a lot when I lived in Mumbai. Lord Ganesh is believed to be the remover of any obstacles and has great wisdom. All new ventures or auspicious events begin with a Ganesh pooja (prayer ritual). Here's a picture of one of my Ganesh's but of course we won't be immersing him into the sea. May you all receive many blessings and joy from Lord Ganesh.
We've had some incredible weather lately - sunny and not too cold. Some spectacular skies too. Here's a picture I took some days ago. Reminded me of fairy wings.
