rain...

summer has officially begun in these parts, with the first day of summer being a couple of days ago. today however turned out to be rainy all morning, with the day getting brighter in the evening.

rainy days are among my favourite things. there is something about rain that puts me in a really good mood - and if, like today, it is already raining by the time i get up and have my morning cup of tea, even better :)

rain is always good, but it is even more beautiful in the spring, when everything around looks so green and fresh... there had been so many rainy days the past month, and i had taken some pics now and then from our apartment balcony - i thought of posting some of them here today...

  when it rains, it pours - drenching our entire balcony and lashing down the glass door...

 a steady rain falling over the trees outside... 


a rainy day view of the opposite block in our apartment...


and the sun comes shining through... 

it was one of those days when the evening sunshine was so golden after a rainy spell, that it made even our balcony look all the more beautiful than it usually seems :)

mundane monday - #66

half the year has almost gone by already, and i realise i've made just one other mundane monday post this year. huhh. i suppose i haven't been taking that many photos this year. a few months back i got a new phone with a really good camera, and that has made me use my actual camera even less. this photo im posting today is one of those few from the camera this year.

this was taken a couple of months back, before i left for my month-long hometown visit. i was shopping around for some random stuff, when i saw this set of colourful measuring cups and spoons. they looked so pretty and i decided to get them for my cousin.
measuring cups are so handy in the kitchen, and it is always an added bonus if useful stuff is also pretty. they look so gorgeously colourful, don't they ?

the set of measuring cups that i myself have now, is this red one from ikea.


some more pops of colour here, here, and here !

incidentally, the old set of measuring cups i had was one of the early pics i took for the monday series. i realise they were pretty blah ones, though :)
