7 Things about me

I was tagged by Swapnae for this meme. And the rules are :

List 7 random things about yourself on your blog.

Tag 7 others.

Leave a comment on their blog to direct them to your site to get the rules.

So here goes :

1. I can read Erma Bombeck books several times and still laugh my head off at the funny parts everytime I come across it.- Dh cannot understand how the same jokes can have me laughing aloud everysingle time I read it.

2. I miss the lovely 'chaat' that you get to snack upon in India, especially in Bombay. I love pani puri, bhel, aaloo chaat , chinese dosa etc...

3. I have atleast 6 dresses ironed and ready to wear at all times. I love impulsive outings and like to be ready at all times.

4. I try my hand at every craft I come across- ofcourse not all attempts are successful.

5. I love comedy shows.- Friends, Bill Cosby Show, According to Jim , and many other funny movies new and old

6. I think Saree is the one of the ultimate Elegant outfit.- Although I don't wear it often , I think it's the classiest one .

7. I just cannot resist popping bubble wrap.

And , it's my turn to Tag now , I tag Sue , Mimi , Tandi , Vik , Ulla, Kimberly, & You!

You don't have to do the meme, only if you wish to:)

ETA : This has taken 6 trials to publish .....sometimes blogger hates me !!

What I've been upto
I've been Mia for sometime ....... not in a crochet rut (Thank God!) . And I've finally found the camera as well. And yes I'm still at the unpacking and settling in - I seriously wonder whether people everunpack every single thing and put it away in a proper place when they move or do they keep some stuff packed until they move again just because those things aren't really needed urgently ? Just wondering .......I'm thinking of actually doing it.
Oh yes , coming back to why I'm not blogging regularly , I'm having a whole of guests coming and it has been such fun. A lot of work and tiring too but great fun. I like having people over and entertaining guests and yes cooking too for big groups! Dh thinks I'm just nuts if I enjoy all this work.
On the crochet front , just finished posting off three exchang packages. Sorry I had to post the packages before I found the camera so no pictures to show. I had also included little Christmas tree ornaments ( my own little pattern - again nothing original and it had a few beads too) which I wanted to take pictures of .....but the Camera chose to remain hidden ! I'm also working on a lace edging for a dupatta for my really sweet aunt and I'm working with black thread in size 20. It's been not so easy and since the the lace is 9 yards ,it's taking forever to do.I was thinking of adding in beads but I'm not so sure now.
Pearlin, Swapne and any other word press bloggers I need your help please! I've commented on your entries several times but they don't appear. Just thought I'd let you know.

Mums are special, always!

Wishing all my 'Mom' bloggers a wonderful Mothers Day. I feel that everyday is a Mother's Day since we all work so hard at the job of being a Mom.And ofcourse our rewards are greater than any other- the love of our little ones to whom we are always special. This morning my little fella was telling his friend that Mom is the bravest and knows 'everything' !!!! - do I need to say that it was a lovely start to my day!?!

Great going VIK !
I've been blogging for over a year and have come across many wonderful fellow bloggers and online freinds who besides being wonderful people are also so thoughful about others, especially the less fortunate ones. Vik of ' Like Grandma ' blog is one such wonderful blogger. I've always believed that every single step( however small )in thje right direction always matter the result. Taking the initiative to do the even teensiest thing that can make someone happy or atleast cheer up a little is far, far better than just sitting back and watching while time and opportunity fly by. I believe that there is no better time than now!
Vik has come up with this wonderful thought about helping people and everybody is welcome to join in.

KNITING FOR HOMELESS - check it out !

We are doing way too many things right now but if can manage to give just 15 mins in a day to this cause, I'm sure we can make a difference. I signed up as soon as I read about this. Will you join in too ?
