I have been awol for a while now. And my plate's been quite full. I've been busy with things and one of them is this. I've rediscovered Zentangle and I've spent the last few months tangling to my heart's content. It's been a blast. So much that I, the cheapskate, have signed up for the… Continue reading Plowing Away…
So, I made my mango pineapple jam and the oatmeal raisin cookies. Both turned out awesome but sorry, no pictures. The cookies are almost gone. Ka's in love with these cookies (and so is her dad!!). So, the next time I might just try to make them a tad bit healthier 🙂 As for the jam, the recipe… Continue reading The ‘Doing’ Phase
That's what my life is all about. Phases. Every few months (sometimes weeks, and sometimes even days), I go through one phase or the other.

It's funny how life changes once you get married. I had almost forgotten how much I loved colours until about 2 months back when I signed up for a beginner's Acrylic painting class. And then the flood gates opened and it all came back to me. The magic of colours. Shades. Tones. Tints. The play… Continue reading Colours…

And every time I watch someone dance, my love for it only grows multi fold.The person that I am, once that realisation has… Continue reading The joy of dancing…
Hoarders! We are a funny bunch. Nope. That's not the royal we. It's just an expression of hope that others like me exist. That I am not alone. And why do I think we are a funny bunch? Because we manage to complicate our lives with things that are meant to simplify it and bring… Continue reading We the hoarders
There's been a new development in my life. I am in love. With 'X'. I have known X forever. Enjoyed X's company. X has been a part of my life for a long long time. My parents were always proud of my aquaintence with X. Not something that worried them. They were just happy for… Continue reading I’m in love…..
We are minimalists...my husband and I. Which means we desperately try not to tread into the cursed forbidden territory of 'wants'. That is not to say that we always succeed. But we try.
