Random posts are fun (my earlier ones here & here). So here goes one more –
I had made a quick visit to my hometown on some official purpose early March and I got to spend some time with my niece. She is growing up fast into a chatty kid, entertaining everyone at home, 24*7. 😛
March ended on a good note for me and with the start of April, I am looking forward to Spring; for it means Bohag Bihu, holidays and a visit to home. 🙂
It time to bid goodbye to my all-time favourite vegetable – fresh green peas. Frozen ones can never replace the taste of the fresh ones. 😦
I love this combo of jeera-aloo with green peas
With summer stepping in, I am getting prepared with a fresh wardrobe; loose, flowy, breezy, comfortable – these are the things I am looking for in my clothes for the season. I have already stocked a few maxi dresses, palazzo pants & long skirts. 🙂
A new café called 11th Avenue Cafe & Bistro has opened up in my town. Owing to the location (Dighalipukhuri East), ambience & menu, its quickly becoming a favourite place for me and my friends. Last week we had this English Chips garnished with shredded chicken and cheese and it was absolutely yummy! 🙂
With some allowances I got from office, I bought Maa a brand new refrigerator and a washing machine and to say she was delighted will be an under-statement. I love it when I succeed in making them happy! 🙂
I am lagging behind with my book reviews. I feel guilty especially for those which were sent to me by authors/ publishers. And this is why I have now started accepting review books very selectively. Anyways, with office life a bit relaxed now, I plan to complete all my pending book reviews.
I always keep a close watch on the plants on my balcony garden. But even then somehow this plant was not noticed by me for quite some time; maybe because in the last 3 years, it refused to grow beyond 2 leaves. Yesterday I suddenly discovered, to my utter delight, that it has some buds and is ready to bloom; I guess to welcome Spring.
One Sunday, me and my sister had taken up the task to re-pot all of our plants with the new (riverside) soil that I had managed to find & bring home. I am guessing the re-potting helped the above mentioned dormant plant of years to bloom finally! 😛
I am driving my car regularly now and with each passing day, I am getting the controls of the car under me. With a few hiccups here & there, I am managing fine. 🙂
Have you been checking out my Photo Friday posts? I love this weekly feature that I have started in my blog. It helps me in posting regularly, at least once in a week. 🙂
