On some days, life is between the cup and the book ..

From inside the book, such papers fall off.. I found a boarding pass and a baggage tag. I think I bought this book on the date from the boarding pass, one December in 2009, from the airport book store at Mumbai. As is practice I keep the boarding pass as a book mark to remember the journey.

Life is always full of colour, on the plate, in the bowl, in our daily sights…

#flavoursometuesday – the goan pork vindaloo

#flavoursometuesday – the goan pork vindaloo. Every kid’s taste buds are formed at their parents’ kitchen. Most often, the mother.

.

.

Therefore we grow up to judge taste using her dishes as the reference point, whether the mother cooks well or not. I’m fortunate to have an excellent cook in my mother and father. Have been spoiled crazy with food all my life .. 😊

This vindaloo is a family favourite. One of those just yummy yum, out of the world tasty dishes on the plate from MJ’s kitchen..

Let there be light! Even if it is a little glimmer in the darkness around!

The table looked beautiful with the colours of the veggies, the men were working with. It was a random decision to take a picture …

But then I realised that it looks like the Indian Flag. 😊

I thought I’d share a thought for the next few days like a regime! May be I could share a thought and a picture … (Let’s see about the latter, later)

Here goes..

When I realise I’m growing lazy or that I don’t do what I am supposed to do, I begin to list- all kinds of lists, not just to do ones. But I tend to list everything I did in a day or in the first hour after I wake up, for instance, to account for where I was, what I did, where I focused my energies on – to keep track of how 60 minutes went by.

And it does wonders, because I always find something I do which I never realised I did like a habit.. for instance, I realised this morning, one of the two things I do after I wake up is #1 open the windows and #2 keep the kettle to boil without fail before I shut the door to the world around me to peacefully sit on the pot 😉

The blood moon!

How many of us saw the moon tonight .. /last night, the night that just passed..

I’ve always been attracted to the stars in the skies. Was it in class 3, we had constellations as part of our science textbook? I’m not sure now.. but I remember Orion, the big and small Dipper very clearly from a long time ago in school, often looked up to the sky to spot them .. after that .. wherever I’ve gone, I’ve found people (who later became friendly and a few close friends) who were equally interested in star gazing.. the stars slowly gave way to eclipses.. and today it has come to this bluemoon-supermoon-totallunar eclipse-thebloodmoon in the sky …

It has been a wonderful ride so far.. spotting the red moon that looked very similar to Mars in the sky… Interacting with people who are excited about it the same way I am…

Today I met a couple of people who were also gazing at the moon, such as, this older gentlemen. He assumed I was a Maharashtrian Brahmin, waiting in my pyjammas/house clothes to see when the moon turned fully white, run up to take a bath and begin my dinner..

What I didn’t tell him is I already had my dinner .. at around 6.30/7 pm, and was there only to watch this spectacle.. but between watching the moon and texting my moon gazing interested people on my contact list, I had the opportunity to talk to, share smiles with, say wow, and participate in the wonder a few others saw in the moon tonight. I don’t know whether we’ll meet again, but for tonight the moon up in the sky and waiting for it to turn from red to white was our conversation starter..

How did you spend your evening then ..

Tea …

I’m not your regular tea person. Nevertheless, on some days I love to have a cuppa. Like tonight .. in fact the whole day, I was sipping my tea, mixed with the juice of a lemon, honey ..

It has been cold around here, the sun has been shy.. the tea kept me warm..
