Yes , it's been a wonderful blogging year already. Can u believe that? It feels like just a couple of months to me :). Lol ! Speak about time flying! I wanted to celebrate this day but looks like I'll have to postpone it.
I'll be putting put a little contest soon as blogger is more cooperative with me ( hope fully within a couple of weeks). Besides I'm still wrestling with a horrible cold and cough to think straight at all.
And I'd like to thank all of my special blog friends who visit me here and and leave such wonderful and motivating comments. I've learn't so much from you all. Its been wonderful to find this great online family .

Within Me Meme!

I've been tagged by
Kathy for this meme.

Each player of this game starts with the 6 weird things about you. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly.
In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says you are tagged in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

1. I never measure anything while cooking , just put in the ingredients according to my guess....okay, I'm not a bad cook - it just sounds like that!

2. I always apply lipstick without the mirror and the same goes for my contact lenses too.

3.I always have 10-12 hairpins on my head at any given time except bedtime ofcourse!

4.We get the news paper home at 6:00 am but I always wait till midnight to read it. -Now this one really freaks out my friends , wonder why?

5. I dip my buttered toast in tea and eat it.- Dh is disgusted by this one.

6. I never leave a book incomplete- no matter how much I hate it !

Well, now I get to tag some of my friends. And I tag:

The days go by soooo fast's already been 5 days of working.Yay ! This is my first weekend. And I'm enjoying evey minute of it . I made an early start to the day , had breakfast and read the weekly magazine, crocheted for an hour and now here I am at the PC blogging. lol!
The day I returned from India I was greeted with a job offer. And in my holiday daze , quite apparently, I was not thinking straight. I had been considering going back to work sometime soon, but not immediately. I actually rushed off for the interview on the very same day. I didn't even stop to think how I'd handle home, work and my little trouble maker.Yes, I got the job and now I'm a kinder garten teacher! And to top it all , I agreed to off from the very next day.
Not surprising at all that I'm going nuts trying to juggle the home front , my kiddie & hubby ( who are both terribly used to having my full undivided attention) , unpacking, work and crochet !!!! But I must admit I'm enjoying teaching again.
Ofcourse, even though so much remains to be done , I'm back to crocheting from day one. No big project but just some simple towel edgings. I had not crocheted at all during my one monh trip except just once during a 10 hrs drive and was bored to tears. Dh couldn't take it more and needed to get some sleep he actually begged me to crochet. lol!! He thinks that's it's the one thing that keeps me out of trouble ( if only he knew- how much I spent on supplies this time !!!!)
This year I decided not make any new resolutions....I'm sticking with the old ones- finishing off the remaining WIPs and Learning to Knit. Lets see how that goes.

Happy 2007 ! A good start to the year.
Wishing you all a wonderful New Year! I'm back from my vacation in India. New year brings new things and changes. I have a job now - and I'm happy that its going great. I'm teaching kindergarten and so totally loving it. I started work as soon as I got back . that's why I've not been able to be much on the pc.
We also have a newcomer in the family- a sweet sister in law - my brother got married last month. And oh we had so much many things to tell about that....I'll get back to it later. Meanwhile , I'll say that my new SIL is just so sweet and great fun . We had some good time together and yes, the best part - SHE CROCHETS TOO !!! Yay! Finally someone in the family who I can talk crochet with.
I have my bloggiversary coming up soon.It really is shocking how quickly a year can fly by. It's almost a year since I started blogging. Wow! A year of rambling on .....and so many projects . Makes me happy.
I hope all of you , my dear blog friends, have a great start to the new year. And it gets better each day.
