Shutterbug Showcase – Relax

Getting relaxed

Watching rains, while have a cup of hot chocolate coffee, is my idea to get relaxed.

Relax! I cannot think of a better word now, after a hectic days of travel and shifting from once city to another. And, so is the theme Jennifer (@jennifernicholewells) gave to me for this week’s Shutterbug Showcase. Thank you Jennifer 🙂

Well, this view is from my room’s window. I can sit here for hours and watch the birds, the greenery around and the kids at school too (that’s on the right, not captured in the pic). That’s my idea of getting relaxed. What’s yours? Let everyone know through your blogpost. Drop in the link in the comments section below until the next prompt.

Going by the rules, here is the Shutterbug Showcase weekly prompt for @beckybwinch for August 4 – A Cosy Corner.

Shutterbug Showcase

There is no bigger pleasure than the family time spent together playing an indoor game with joy. Everyone is busy in their lives. Father goes for work, mother also goes for work, children go to school .At home, mother has to do household work, children have to do their homework or go to play outdoors with friends. There is hardly anytime left to spend with family. The whole week goes in a frenzy. It is the weekends that allow for spending a quality time with family, so why not utilise it with playing a game that is entertaining and at the same time helps in bringing everyone together in the house. Its not a wrong saying that goes, it is the house that is made of bricks but it is the home that is made of members. While such family times also give you a better reason to smile and rejoice. Photo clicked by me while playing the game of ludo with family.

My weekly photo propmt for today:- ‘smiles’.The next week’s propmt for @suzannebowditch is walls. 🙂
