New babies and a giveaway I received!:)

Dear all,

Hope you all are doing fine . I was in my hometown with my family and returned this Monday. Thank you for your well wishes . Back home , I got busy with loads of laundry work and regular household work too. I did not get enough time to get in touch with blogging and all of you .

A week of blogging break feels like a month’s break to me . After a little bit of procrastination, blame it on fatigue , I decided to set into gear and drive straight towards the blogland. Some of the tasks at home can wait . I need a break from the daily grind .

Around 15 days back we had new babies at home . Well, thanks for the wishes. They are not mine . A common bird in India known as Spice Finch (scaly breasted ‘Munia’) owns a nest in our balcony behind the AC. It was at a height of 9 ft . One fine day we heard lot of baby chirping voices. Raj got a webcam attached to a long stick and we got a continuous video stream in the laptop. That was our daily entertainment for few days.
Here are the two videos (of many that we recorded). It may not work on iPad. Hope you and your kids will enjoy.

1st day of flying. Nooo mom! That’s so high and scary!!

2nd day, after a heavy breakfast, let’s move…let’s move!!

The one who flies in and out fast is the mom or dad. It was so interesting, she came in and out again and again to show how to fly and also tried to give a push to the babies to move forward.

Also, when I was back, I received a giveaway gift from Ruth B. I love this pretty cross stitch rose. Thanks Ruth! Do visit her. I enjoy reading her posts.

Thanks again for your lovely comments and wishes . I am home ! :)

Have a nice weekend!

  6. Welcome home, Preeti :) I enjoyed seeing your baby birds and I have a new respect for the meaning of "leaving the nest!" The cross-stitch rose is so beautiful, I glad you have it to enjoy. I am finishing a little crocheted cap for my soon to be born grandchild.
