During Bloganuary prompts in January there were two prompts. One, who was my inspiration and the other what was the road trip I would like to take. Amazing as it happens I did take a surprise road trip last week to Dallas from Pittsburgh to celebrate the person who inspired me. Long before the pandemicContinue reading “My Road Trip”
I am on a roadtrip to Dallas. It can be called a pilgrimage too. The past few days I have been at Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple in Frisco. The dazzling architecture made me feel nostalgic . Inspite of the hot weather every vistor takes time to capture their picture in front of the Temple.
We are on a road trip this week and I am currently in Tennesse. I thought the plant outside my hotel to be rose but it looked different as I approached it closer. The leaves look like those of roses. For Cee’s FOTD
I love my religious rituals. I keep blogging about all the Hindu festivals I do but this Friday I performed Varalakshmi Pooja. A prayer invoking Goddess Lakshmi who gives wealth and prosperity. The prayer time is short but the rituals that involve start the previous day and end the next day. So I am busyContinue reading “Rituals”

The past few years I make my son participate in dry roasting the ingredients and making into a powder. Usually this quantity lastsContinue reading “Some Kitchen Work”

But silk has undergone so many variations and we get soft silk and silk cotton sarees now, which I indulge without spending too much.Continue reading “Silk varieties”
Last year my garden was attacked by a bunny . He munched anything and everything that grew. Growing plants was hard. It was depressing to start my garden this spring. But I am raising an autistic boy. So I always have hope. So we started with so many precautions. But the bunny family had multipliedContinue reading “Touch wood”
Another hibiscus variety from my garden. After two years this plant has grown well and is blooming good. It seems this is a drought resistant plant and needs little water. Starting July 15th until November 15 the Hindu calendar is full of festivals and my altar in my prayer room gets decorated by these flowers.Continue reading “Rose of Sharon”
