Xkcd; Web comic

I don’t like reading comic’s and even if I do try to read one, then most of the times I don’t understand what they are speaking/saying/laughing about.

Friend had posted this link, xkcd.com, on the facebook. As I had no idea what it was, I clicked on it and here I am sharing it with you.
Good that I didn’t know what this page was gonna be about, else I wouldn’t have been there and would have missed it.


Enjoy!!

Prologue; Quotes, I believe in

Currently, I am not blogging as regularly as I would like to. Oh, I am not busy & occupied, it’s just that, hmmmm, I don’t know :)
But now I am determined that I willpost a post’ every Monday titled as “Quote, I believe in”. It will contain a pic, which I will take during the previous week, followed by a quote which will inspire me/us for the rest of the week.
I don’t think it’s difficult to keep-up with it ;) So check this space, every monday, to be inspired.

my fish is no more :(

Couple of month’s back I had posted about my fishy fish
And yesterday my fish died, after staying with us for 6 months and 19 days to be precise.
It doesn’t feel good when I see the empty fish bowl. I am gonna get another one in December.

Today friend had come home with her 2 year old daughter. Little one was asking “Where is fishy ?”. My fish is being missed and remembered by everyone. But I am glad that it stayed with us for so long.

I think I can cook now………..

….and why do I feel this. Keep reading !!

Last weekend, my friend’s was shifting an apartment and I don’t have to say what a hassle it is especially when you have a kid and you are not well. Least I could do to help her was to make her some lunch / dinner.
Also, I had invited a friend for lunch.

So here is what I cooked:
Chole, Mushroom Peas, Spinich Panner, Aloo Gobi, Capsicum Panner, Dahi vade and Gajar ka halwa with rice and roti (these are all Indian dishes which are made from scratch, no frozen or ready-to-eat stuff).

Your efforts will not pay-off if it’s not edible, which has happened to me few times.
But not this time :) everyone just loved the food.
Friend who has seen me cook couple of times, was shocked and couldn’t believe that I can cook so well. Well, even I was surprised..... hahaha.

Now I feel that I am ready to invite people for dinners and lunches and will be able to cook & serve at least few of the dishes confidently.

Didn’t know that all will like the food and I will be blogging it, else I would have clicked some pics and shared it with you.
No problem, as there is always a next time.

Mount Ranier; Sunrise Point

2 weeks back when the temperature here at western Washington was at all-time-high we had been to Mount Rainier; Sunrise point.

Here are few pics:




After hiking for couple of yards, I was tooo tired to go up-the-hill and wanted to come back. But thanks to hubby for not letting me come down, as the view & cold breeze at the top was worth the effort.

Smile :)

I received this in an e-mail. I loved it and hence sharing it with you.

A little girl walked to and from school daily.Though the weather that morning was questionable and clouds were forming, she made her daily trek to the elementary school.
As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up, along with thunder and lightning. Mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter would be frightened as she walked home from school and she herself feared that the electrical storm might harm her child. Following the roar of thunder, lightning, like a flaming word, would cut through the sky full of concern, the mother quickly got into her car and drove along the route to her child's school.
As she did so, she saw her little girl walking along, but at each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look up and smile. Another and another were to follow quickly and with each, the little girl would look at the streak of light and smile.
Mother's drove up beside the child and called to her,"What are you doing? Why do you keep stopping?" The girl answered, "I am trying to look pretty, God keeps taking my picture".
"Face the storms that come your way and don't forget to SMILE!"
I know you SMILED!!!
