October Already!

omg! October is already going to be over and I haven't even posted much yet! where did the time go o.O

My BSNL Broadband has some trouble, that's why I wasn't in touch with my facebook, Gmail and blogging for 4 days :D  Now I'm back after my Dusshera Holiday's and here what I did in the mean time :) (blogging from office :D)

This Dusshera went quite fine. I had 4 holidays in series and I used them to full.

Sunday first half went in birding. My blog friends would hardly know that I’m a hobbyist Birder that means, I enjoy watching and photographying birds. I go on common/interesting bird searching, participate in migratory bird counting in the State and also participate in Bird welfare campaigns. (I'm also a butterflier- You'd know this from my Photography Blog)

This time it was counting Open billed Storks nests for study and research purpose at the Nandankanan Zoological Park, Bhubaneswar

Many wild-lifers and naturalists participated in it. These birds are very huge and beautiful specially in flight. I was amazed to see their nesting ways. We got into groups and counted nests tree wise.


Later in the afternoon we had a lunch out with our relatives. We all traveled far out of the city with our grandmother and of course chiku had to come along.


Later in holiday's I cleaned my room as much as possible, cleaned as many clothes and decored one of my naked shelf with beautiful newspaper and 'kite paper cover' :)


A she dog has given pups in our backyard.. Sweet na! :) Our family absolutely adores dogs.


I completed reading Life of Pi..A very interesting and adventurous novel. Now waiting for the movie. Now reading The Hungry Tide by Amitav Ghosh.


Baby-sited my grandmother and pet dog, while my family went off to visit various Puja pandals and enjoy their time :)


On the final 10th day of Dusshera, we all did puja at home. The vehicles and machines and instruments were worshiped. I went shopping with sister and visited one Durga Puja pandal on the way. It was so full of lights and decorations and colorswow :)


Will be back soon with more October Updates :)

Have a lovely weekend :) Hope you are having a fab time!!
