Uthraada pookkalam

Today is β€œUthraadam nakshathram. This is our Day 9 pookkalam.

Day 9 - Uthraadam

AndΒ  here’s what we designed on Day 1 – Atham, Day 2 – Chithira, Day 3 – Chothi, Day 4 – Vishakham, Day 5 – Anizham, Day 7 – Moolam and Day 8 – Pooraadam. πŸ™‚

And I’ve fallen ill 😦 Baaaad fever πŸ˜₯ I don’t even know how I managed to sit through to complete this one. Well, right at the start, I was so tired and had an aching body, that made me very clumsy. After drawing an intricate, reeeeely awesome design, I spilt water all over it and washed away all the lines 😦 By then, I was almost in tears πŸ˜€ And then, we just did whatever we could: the main intent was to finish it ASAP and get into bed 😦

My Thiruvonam‘s gonna be bad, sad and dull. Waaaaaaahhhhh 😦 😦 😦 😦 😦

Pooraada pookkalam

Today is β€œPooraadamβ€œ nakshathram. This is our Day 8 pookkalam.

Just 2 more days to go 😦 Am already sad this is getting over. Sigh!

Day 8 - Pooraadam

AndΒ  here’s what we designed on Day 1 – Atham, Day 2 – Chithira, Day 3 – Chothi, Day 4 – Vishakham, Day 5 – Anizham and Day 7 – Moolam. πŸ™‚

moolappokkalam

Today is β€œMoolamβ€œ nakshathram. This is our Day 7 pookkalam. πŸ™‚

Sorry folks, there was a jumble up with the order of the stars. It goes like this :
Atham, Chithira, Chothi, Vishakham, Anizham, Thrukkaetta, Moolam, Pooraadam, Uthraadam andΒ  Thiruvonam. On Thiruvonam, the last of the pookkalam is designed, as grand as can be!

So, I missed out Vishakham earlier, and had named that one Anizham. So, actually, today is Moolam nakshathram.

Day 7 - Moolam

AndΒ  here’s what we designed on Day 1 – Atham, Day 2 – Chithira, Day 3 – Chothi, Day 4 – Vishakham, Day 5 – Anizham and Day 6 – Thiru Kaetta πŸ™‚

Thrukkaetta pookkalam

Today is β€œThiru Kaettaβ€œ nakshathram. This is our Day 6 pookkalam. πŸ™‚

The border, with all that multi-colour flower arrangement, is the result of left over, almost-wilted flowers from the past days πŸ˜‰ Effective utilisation of the entire flower collection πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

Day 6 - Thiru Kaetta

AndΒ  here’s what we designed on Day 1 – Atham, Day 2 – Chithira, Day 3 – Chothi, Day 4 – Vishakham and Day 5 – Anizham πŸ™‚

anizham pookkalam

Today is β€œAnizhamβ€œ nakshathram. This is our Day 5 pookkalam. πŸ™‚

Ahem! Creativity dying out, i suppose πŸ˜€ Can’t tink of innovative designs anymore πŸ˜€ Lack of greens is very apparent. Lesson learnt. Tomorrow, there’ll be more greens πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Day 5 - Anizham

AndΒ  here’s what we designed on Day 1 – Atham, Day 2 – Chithira, Day 3 – Chothi and Day 4 – Vishakham πŸ™‚

Vishakham pookkalam :)

Today is β€œVishakhamβ€œ nakshathram. This is our Day 4 pookkalam. πŸ™‚

As is apparent from the relative lack of flowers, let me tell you…yesterday, we couldn’t steal 😦 I reached home late and was daaaaaamn sleepy, and couldn’t go flowers thieving πŸ˜€ Hence the sloppy design πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Tomorrow’s gonna be much much better πŸ˜€

Day 4 - Vishaakham

AndΒ  here’s what we designed on Day 1 – Atham, Day 2 – Chithira and Day 3 – Chothi πŸ™‚
