~ Remember the reading slump that I was telling you about some time back? The last two books that I read did not pull me out of it. I just went on reading them, and they got over. That’s about it. However, over the weekend, I picked up Annie Sanders’s The Gap Year For Grown-Ups, and got hooked to it instantly. It is chick-lit, yes, but the storyline is interesting. At least, till now, and I am almost half way through the book. Fingers crossed for this to be the book which pulls me out of my slump.
~ Suddenly, I seem to be surrounded by loads of juicy books that I absolutely HAVE to read. I want to rush through each one of them, so that I can get to the next. At the same time, I also want to savour each bit of juiciness to the utmost, for as long a time as possible. 🙂
~ It has been a while since I cooked for the Alphabet Cooking Challenge. I do have something in mind for E. Hopefully, it will get cooked soon!
~ The OH took the day off work yesterday, just like that, to spend time with me. It had been ages since we did! I was thrilled. It reminded me of how therapeutic such unplanned breaks are. We went out for some time yesterday, and it was good not to have to face the usual crowds that we have to deal with, wherever we go, on weekends.
~ What’s with the prices of vegetables being sky-high these days? I can hardly find any vegetable which is below Rs. 80 a kg, except for cabbage. And, I am tired of cooking cabbage. Decent coriander is nowhere to be found, either. 😦
~ In spite of my social life being extremely low-key in the past month, I have been procrastinating badly on my freelance work. Not great attitude towards work, I know. I am not proud of it. I have, however, pulled myself together today, and am geared to do the best I can. Wish me luck with that!
~ Remember this little one? Well, she has grown up to become one of the most adorable babies I have ever seen. She recently had her head tonsured, and is now looking all the more adorable!
~ I had a Baskin Robbins ice cream for the first time in my life, last weekend. Yes, I am slow like that. 🙂 I had a scoop of Swiss Delight mixed with one of Praline. Delightful!
~ Amma has returned to her place, now that the OH is back from Delhi. She has left a huge vacuum in place of her. How do I fill that?
~ I am in love with the sound of glass bangles and anklets, all over again. Everywhere I go, I put on glass bangles and chunky anklets these days, both of which herald my arrival much before I become visible, causing everyone to turn around and look. Yes, I know I am not a cow, but I love the sound! 🙂 I love the feel of them on my hands and feet, too.
~ I am looking forward to the festive season to begin in August. I want to experience all the cheer and warmth that comes with it!
So, that’s about it, people. What have you been doing lately?
