A moment in the sun

There are times you want to be yourself, not a mom, not a wife, not a friend or daughter......just collecting yourself, an appointment with oneself, a moment of reflection, a moment of being so lost and engrossed in deep and sweet thoughts. My husband captured my moment of self reflection in my lovely rose garden.

One of my favorite Movies

In the recent times, there have been a bunch of new movies that I watched. I liked them as I was watching it, but then totally forgot about it later on. That was the impact of most movies that I saw. And then came along Julie and Julia. I had just started blogging my recipes and was finding it really difficult as I'm no tech buff. I always admired Meryl Streep. She is so beautiful and charming. I'm not sure if she has any plastic surgery done, but she looks 'normal' and 'real' to me in these 'hi plastic' times.

Julie and Julia was a breath of fresh air. I really loved the movie. Both the female characters were awesome. Meryl Streep, however; took the cake. I particularly loved the bond her character Julia Child shares with her husband Paul Child. There is no age for romance and love. It is a really deep, emotional feeling. This movie did a wonderful job of  portraying that.

My husband and I really enjoyed this movie immensely. We were cozily tucked away on the big chair sharing a single blanket between us. We had finished dinner alost a couple of hours earlier. Huddled together, we enjoyed hot tea and snacks while my children were happily in dreamland. Guess what I made the next day, Chocolate Mousse!

A Comic Strip Scene From A Real Party:

This picture is from a party we had attended. The food was served in the garage which was connected to the backyard. The breeze was cool and pleasant. I don't know how hubbyji used his camera to create such a lovely comic strip scene of people there. I'm in the dark green sari right behind the girl holding a plastic bag. Bet you would never know it was me!

My Hubby's Cooking:

Guess my husband got inspired by all my cooking videos. He decided to make a Potato curry, dry style, his own way, and also give me a day off. The lovely curry turned out so awesome, it was all gobbled up right after the pics were taken. We ate it with hot rotis. My husband can be an awesome cook if her desires to.

Cockroach at a Pizza Joint

We were to pick up five cheese Pizzas for a birthday party on our way. After we picked up the pizzas and simply heading toward the door, guess what we saw? Well, we did not tell anybody at the party, but were just surprised.

Fresh Organic Green Chilies From My Garden

There is such a pleasure  in eating something freshly plucked from the garden. These few chilies, though terribly hot, were all gone in no time. A friend of ours who loves chilies just vanished them in a jiffy when he had come over for dinner.

The Irresistible Cloud

We saw these clouds as we were running out on some errands. Hubbyji had to stop in the middle of the road and start taking these pictures. The cloud was so massive and so unusual. It was white and fluffy and then instantaneously changed colors. Passerby's and people who saw my hubby just stopped their car right in the middle of the street and started clicking away.
