Life does go and there is much to be thankful for.
On Sunday we lost someone and with in the hour someone else came into our lives. Rangit [the young man on the left, our very capable store room manager and right hand man became a father. He and his wife Angelie welcomed their first child a boy into the world. Mum and baby doing well.
After Karlu's wake we will take time to celebrate properly [ usually it happens around 20 days after arrival] here.
Butter churning is in full action Nandu, in pink and famous as our block print lady also knows about butter churning. Here she is showing Reckha who does cleaning for us how to make butter.
Some mornings there is a small line at the back door of people with a kettle to collect some.
Good, good nutrition in buttermilk as well as delicious and refreshing in hot weather.
Every so oftern I soften and make him Biriani and put a table spoon full over the top. It is delicious but very far from everyday.
OHHH and, a big 'and', Praveen's 2 youngest boys are staying with us for a few weeks of the school holidays...this is a big one as it is being thought that they may come to us to go to school.
Huge changes perhaps. A part of me [and Praveen as well] love our alone-ness. Fulfilling family responsibilities at a distance but the boys will grow up and especially the middle one Monish, without a Papa's guiding and hand is the type to get up to big mischeif.
Perhaps taking them on now, we will see they stick at their schooling, better guide their growing up and have a lot of fun along the way. Many details to sort out, but things are going well.
Happy day to you, be kind to someone :)
