I am a bad, bad blogger. Not responding to comments, not visiting my friends (Ameena, Anita, Deeps, Heather, Madhu, Malou, Styleonthecouch, Violetsandcardamom- I’m talking about you. Sorry.)
Reading: Knock At A Star, an anthology of children’s poetry, oraganised thematically. My mother gave me this book when I was little, and now that I am a mother myself, I have been reading aloud to my son. It’s a great collection of fun poems and limericks featuring everyone from Ogden Nash to Emily Dickinson.
Watching: Gossip Girl Season 1. All over again. I am on this trip of giving my brain ZERO intellectual nourishment while staring at designer headbands on Leighton Meester’s head. I’m on holiday. I believe I am allowed.
Listening to: Buena Vista Social Club. I have a whole playlist on my ipod, and whenever it gets rainy in Kerala, I have it on loop. I don’t know why. Perhaps it’s the tropical connection?
Wondering: Why do people assume that motherhood means you stop working, period? In the last 10 days at least 10 people have been shocked to learn that I (a) work from home and (b) people can actually work from home. Oh well.
Lathering up with: Forest Essentials Delicate Facial Cleanser with Kashmiri Saffron and Neem. Forest Essentials is a luxury Ayurvedic brand from India, and they use organic, all natural, locally sourced ingredients for their beauty and wellness range. And their products are just divine. And my skin actually feels softer!
I am gearing up for Kerala new year, Vishu. I’ll be posting pics of our banana-leaf New Year’s feast soon! Have a great weekend everyone.
