Creations – 2018

This year has been quite a creative one for me. I have mentioned time and again, how my hobbies keep me sane. I remember my childhood days, how distracted I used to be during studies, would feel hungry, thirsty, visit the loo, pester mom and so many other things. But when I sat down, painting…

Another difficult Monday

What do you do when that perfect creature you want to be, is killing you? The person who wakes up early in the morning, to get things ready for breakfast and lunch because she doesn’t want to be labeled a lazy DIL, who does nothing at home. This despite having gone late to bed last…

I dream about

Having my own business. My creative and artistic learning put to use. Turning a distant passion into an everyday reality. A beautiful space, called home. Adorned with hand-crafted stuff. Peaceful and inviting. A shelf full of books, a seat by the window, a cup of tea and the time to enjoy a good read. A…

Catch up post!

It’s been a year since I am on leave. The time to get back to work is close, I report next Monday. I feel so bad when I think of being 8+ hours away from my baby. It is so hard for moms. They have to choose between their career and being a mother. If…

Z – Zeal

For once, without sounding boastful, I would like to give myself credit for lasting through this blogging challenge. The zeal with which I took up this challenge was much more when I compare it to the last time I took up the challenge. I was also more at ease when in comparison to the last…

T – Time

Some days are a race against time. Today has been one such day. What started off with cooking and packing for office at 6.30 in the morning is yet to come to a close. The day at office was hectic with a long list of work lined up, back to back discussions and meetings, clarifications…

S – SmartBin

If you are a gardening enthusiast, you would be well aware of home composting techniques. Now there are a wide variety of options available to do the same. SmartBin is one of them. The first version of SmartBin, involves two stages of composting – one anaerobic and another aerobic. While the first stage gives you…

P – Passion

Time and again my thoughts keep revolving around the fact that in all these years I haven’t been able to identify what is it that I am passionate about? What is it for which I can stay awake all through the night and work for and not feel tired or worn out? True that I…

N – New

From the past couple of years one of my resolutions has been to try something new. As in everything, I know I could have done better, but I am glad for a few things that I have tried in the past year. Usually there are a whole lot of things that I am interested in,…

J – Journal

If there are long spans of my absence on the blog, you can be sure I am writing my heart out into the journal. Similarly if I am here blogging, there will hardly be any entries in the journal. I somehow find it tedious to write into both, rather I feel I will be repetitive….

C – Colors

As a teenager, when I had to pick clothes, my choice of colors would almost always be shades of brown or grey or pastels. I wouldn’t even look at the bright colors. Yellows and oranges would be a big no-no! I wonder why I was like that? The dresses I chose looked dull and Dad…

B – Books

I still have to catch up with the post for B, ain’t I? From writing nothing for months to writing two posts a day. So unlike me. But a challenge is a challenge and I need to try at least a decent amount before giving up. 😉 I have been trying to get back my…
