Counting Colors

Some days it's orange, some days it's white,
Some days it's blue, nice and bright,
Adorned in golden, she loves to slip away, 
Always loving to have her way.

Today she's dressed in purple hues
Speckled with a reddish blue,
A beauty that she is,
The Sky, 
Have you ever wondered about it too?

Dancing in the Rain

Image
The shadows shift rapidly,
The Sun makes way for the dark clouds,
Big, fat raindrops fall to the ground,
Quenching the thirst of people all around.

Water puddles as far as you can see,
Frogs skipping away,
The tiny green shoots peep with glee,
While the Koyal in the tree is quiet today.

The rains have their own charm,
For humans, plants and animals alike.

Bright green leaves dotted with sparkling drops,
Waves in the sea dancing merrily,
Birds ruffling their feathers,
The soul of the Earth rejoices with every shower.


When you're happy & you know it, clap your hands!

"Raindrops on roses
And whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things"
The words from one of my favorite songs. One of those numbers which always bring a smile to my face and instantly cheers me up. Happiness to me is a light headed feeling, of not wanting the moment to end and a glowing face. Now, who wouldn't want it to last forever? But well, it's only the absence of something which makes you appreciate it all the more. Without sounding too philosophical now, I'll now write about those which give me my dose of endorphins! 
Flowers, birds, butterflies, trees, treks, mountains, seasides, puppies, et al (except any reptiles :P) make my ears perk up! Well, you've got it right- Nature and wildlife- my weaknesses. Being amidst nature makes me the happiest. And add to that the company of my favorite people- I'll be in heavenly bliss! Travel for me always needs to be …

Dr. Oetker FunFoods- Have you tried it yet?

Most of us these days have no time for a proper sit down breakfast. However, breakfast being the most important meal in a day, I usually end up grabbing a vegetable or an egg sandwich. I'm always on the look out for new cheese spreads, jams or just plain mayonnaise. So, that's when I came across the variants of mayonnaise from Dr. Oetker FunFoods. Apart from the plain mayonnaise, I also picked up the Tandoori and Burger mayo. All of these are eggless- so there's no need for the vegetarians to worry! :)

I usually make a plain mayo and lettuce sandwich when I'm in a rush. Other days I prefer sandwiches with vegetables in them. I mostly use finely chopped capsicum, carrots, onions & minced garlic. Add lemon juice to the mixture along with the mayo. Mix well and add it onto a slice of buttered toast. Cover it with another slice of toast. And voila! Yumm! Try it next time. You can also add cabbage in case you do have lettuce. 
Since quite some time now, I avoid tea in the…

Wonderings

Image
I wonder if the trees whisper , When their leaves rustle and swish in the breeze.
I wonder if the moon yearns, To come out in the day sometimes.
I wonder if the gushing water in the river, Rushes forth to reach somewhere.
I wonder if the tiny grass cry out in joy, When Dawn sprinkles dewdrops everywhere.
Oh, so many miracles, I cannot help but wonder.
How it would be if I could hear them chatter!
