"MISSED YOU"

Last 2 months just flew by and I didn’t even realize. Changes surrounded me from all possible sides, though all were pleasing.
Few days back, my little friend, whom I used to meet almost every day and now hardly any, came to me, kissed hugged and said “Missed you”. This was the last thing I had expected from her.
I just don’t know how what else to write or how to end this post, all I know is that I am gonna remember that moment for the rest of my life.

Email Clutter

At times I get some really nice emails which go straight to a good ones folder. Occasionally I used to post them here under the labels email, fun..
I was cleaning my inbox and came across many such good mails. Didn’t want to muddle my My Thoughts with just the copied mails so here I come up with a new blog Email Clutter, just for some fun and thoughts and yes forwarded emails.

Idli “Disaster and Recovery”

This was the 1st time I was making idly batter at home ‘from scratch’ to be specific.
I was so happy after grinding the rice and dal as the mixture turned as smooth as a cream. Since the entire recipe was from internet, as usual, there was the tip that we need to keep the batter in the warm place to enhance the fermentation process.

So when you live in a place where the average temp is below 10 deg C, you at once think of the oven as the safe warm place. So did I. Since my oven was not warm, I switched it on for 4 mins at 350 deg and then after some time, I place my batter in the oven with the lid tightly sealed.

Next morning, as soon as I woke up, I rushed to the kitchen hoping to see the batter double in quantity. Least did I know that I will find idly instead.
Yes, you guessed it right; I assume oven was way too hot for batter to get fermented and instead it took the privilege of turning itself into the idly, hoping to make my work easy. And yes, my huge idli was yumm.

water 2 tweet

All of us must have seen small bowls of water lying outside some homes and knew it was for birds, only if they didn’t have a dog, a pet to be precise, guarding this life saver fluid from dehydrated birds ;)

Honestly, I never realized, (ok I am not a duffer, So) maybe I never thought it this way, that during summer, when the sun shines ruthlessly, even birds need extra water to beat the heat and cool their teeny-weeny bodies, until I saw this:

So this summer, only if n when we have it here, I am gonna have a bowl filled with this precious liquid just for the birds :)

sweet special someone !


Is age what defines who your friend can be?
I say no, as my little friend is just turning three.

Big eyes and curly hair, as pretty as a little bear.
She is sweet, she is cute and at time can be a citrus fruit.
“All done” is her favorite word, which she chirps like a baby bird.
It’s RIGHT when she likes it and WRONG in another split.
‘It’s your turn’ and’ it’s my turn’, follow this order else you will be shunned.
Nick jr is all she requests, smiling like a spring cress.

Innocence & intelligence, describe her best, full of flavor like a lemon zest.

I Care


"I care not what others think of what I do, but I care very much about what I think of what I do! That is character." – Theodore Roosevelt

If you believe that what you are doing is wide of the mark then don’t do it for the reason that everyone else thinks this is how it should be. At the end of the day, when everybody will be over and done, you have to live with it

Serene


Breezy Out, cozy In.
Cuddle in a throw and a desire to know.


"Desire to know?", about C# .NET.
How dreary! I agree, yet i’m enjoying it.
