I received some good news in my email, that I passed my third level sanskrit exam conducted by Samskrita Bharathi USA. Last weekend, I received an email saying the results would be announced in a couple of days. The nervousness I experienced whenever I received an email alert over the next couple of days made me think I should not write anymore exams. I was also curious to know the result, so I kept checking the messages frequently even if I did not receive any notification. But finally the results did come, I did do decent and passed the exam. But I am pretty much sure I will not write anymore exam for the next one year. The last level Kovida is really hard and I need to put in more effort. I cannot do that with so many distractions going around me. I also have to train myself, that I am calm before the exam, during the exam and when I get the results. It is not worth loosing one’s mental and physical health over an examination. If you want to know more and learn sanskrit please check out here.
This week we decided to start intermittent fasting. I did loose lot of pounds the past two years, but this is to maintain what I have lost. My husband is joining me in this and it is basically for the general health. We have started with 12 hours and let us see where it takes our family.
My special one has been cooking Tuesdays and Thursdays now regularly with my prompt and help. I can now say with confidence that I have got that into our routine and we pretty much sure will not fall of this cooking wagon. I have two instant pots and he is getting fluent with both. Indian cooking has lot of spices and it is going to take a lot of time for him to be independent, but in due course he can learn that too . I am taking pictures and making into face book reels. This is really difficult. I salute all the you tubers who devote their time to it. But taking pictures and going back to reels make me remember the dishes I made with him. I also post on my status and I am glad many of my friends have supported me. This really is encouraging and helps me keep going.
March is here but we have had a mild winter. We did not clean snow at all this season. Will the weather remain the same or have some surprises. Will have to wait and see. Eagerly waiting to go to nurseries and garden centers to shop for seeds and plants.
