The scaly-breasted munia or spotted munia nests in our house every year. At least for the last two years. They usually come by around Aug-Oct and build their nest. This year they did the same. 2 out of 4 chicks survived. Interestingly, the little ones dont have the same pattern as the adult ones. The chicks are fully dark brown, whereas the adults have a beautiful scaly pattern on their underbelly.
What started out as an 8-books-till-december challenge, paved the path for me to get in and out of Narnia 7 times. In a true Narnian style, I chanced upon one of the books of the series, which was Prince Caspian, which led me into this whole world of Narnia and I ended up completing the entire series (of 7 books) – The Chronicles of Narnia. I would absolutely recommend this series to anyone – kids and adults alike.
When I posted about my reading progress of this series on social media, friends asked if I was reading this book for my child or for me. I would say what CS Lewis ( the author of The Chronicles of Narnia) used to say:
any story worth reading as a child is worth reading as an adult
Anyways, that brings the total books read this year to 10. I need to finish two more books to finish the revised goal of 12 books this year.
I have also been working on two other projects:
Knitting – Made this baby muffler for my little one.
Secondly, the 28 days of Moon Project, which turns out to be more challenging that I thought it would be. More update on this on another day.
