Celebration treats! Eid Mubarak and Happy Ganapati!

Our doorbell keeps doing the ‘ding dong!‘ thing today…

More than the normal everyday type activities, we’ve had folks dropping off treats.

Our driver showed up on his day ‘off’ to share piping hot stupidly delicious home-made vermicelli payasam.

All a part of his sharing the joy of Eid! Completely humbled.

And then the bell rang again with more savouries and sweets – from the building society meeting…

Doorbell treats

Yummy doorbell treats!

We also just had Ganesh Chathurthi with pandals popping up all over – with the final step vasarjan – immersion of Ganapathi idols – with processions to the water, lots of noise, dancing and celebration.

For those not familiar, Ganesh is the elephant god and remover of obstacles. I could do with a few obstacles being removed about now… but that is something to focus on another day…

Today is instead to wish all my friends celebrating  – Eid Mubarak and Happy Ganapathi!
