wrapping it up, yet again...

i've said it before, and i'll say it again - fall (or autumn) is a jinxed season for me. it is seriously uncanny that it happens every year at almost the same time. ugghh... see here and here, and you'll have an idea of what i'm grumbling about. anyway, its that time of the year again, and things arent being any different around here. we are finding ourselves again at the beginning of another end, of wrapping and packing up yet another house... 

one certain advantage it has though, is that it helps me in my goal of being a minimalist. i really think a lot before buying or accumulating stuff, knowing that i'll always be dealing with it all before the end of the year.

mundane monday - #56

coming after a considerable break, today's monday photo just happens to be a splash of colour ! not that i planned for it, but i just saw it and realised it would look beautiful.

this is a bottle of fennel candy - or candy coated fennel - whichever way you prefer it. though i'm sweet toothed, i personally find this too sugary for my taste. and yet, it looks so colourful that i was tempted to take a picture of it :)

fennel candy is common at most indian restaurants, given at the end of a meal as a mouth freshener. it is also very much a part of indian weddings, called 'meetha saunf' in hindi, and 'arisi mittaai' or 'palli mittaai' in my mother tongue tamil. it is also common in south indian weddings to have the names of the couple written with this fennel candy, on a tray filled with sugar ! the colour combination of pink and orange itself reminds me so much of an indian wedding !

find one more photo of this here .
