Everybody talks about weather, but nobody does anything about it. - Mark Twain

We all love doing our homes.  SO TRUE.. But what if the decor adds up to savings.
YESSSSSSS... Recently I have installed a Solar light in my kitchen.  And Believe me it is fun decorating as well as saving and a positive step towards GLOBAL WARMING...
I am a very nature loving person and try using natural light during the day..and actually I cannot stand by the bulbs and tube lights during the day time.  The same I teach my daughter(well my teacher instincts.. and actually her current topic in school is Environment also) to use as much as you can NATURAL LIGHT only.
I always loved my Kitchen WINDOW and now to add to its charm is the SOLAR LIGHT (so effective and useful)
 A look during the DAY TIME
The solar light panel is hung outside the window where it gets the maximum sun rays
 A closer look of the window sill
and fantabulous look during NIGHT

To get more into the detail of my kitchen window sill.  Check this post out!!!!


We know more about Tom [Cruise] and Katie [Holmes] than we do about global warming. We're the most entertained, least informed people in the world.

-Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.,

To prove the above quote wrong, each one of us can do our bits to prevent GLOBAL WARMING....

1.      Turn off the lights when you leave a room. Use fluorescent Lamps (CFL) .

2. Turn off your computer or the TV when you’re not using it. Unplug chargers when not in use.

3. Wait until you have a lot of clothes to wash before using the washing machine.
4. Take shorter showers. Heating water uses energy.

5. Close the blinds on a hot day if the sun is shining in. Dress lightly instead of turning up the air conditioning. Or use a fan.

6. Dress warmly inside your house when it’s cold, instead of turning up the heat.

7. Offer to help your parents keep the air filters on your AC and furnace clean.

8. Walk short distances instead of asking for a ride in a car.

9. Plant trees.

Certain thoughts are prayers....


 Keep your dreams alive. 
Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself,
vision, 
hard work, 
determination, 
and dedication. 
Remember all things are possible for those who believe.


You can tell the size of your God by looking at the size of your worry list.  
The longer your list, the smaller your God. 


God is at home; it is we who have gone for a walk

What are you reading today?


This lovely weather is so awe-inspiring.  The fresh breeze and  so green everywhere does not let me budge away from my beautiful garden for hours these days.  
 That reminds me of, some two days back, I went book shopping for my husband on his birthday.  What cached the glimpse of my eyes was this book about WARREN BUFFETT-THE SNOWBALL.  I am a great admirer of him.
Forgetting that I had come to buy book for my husband, I was determined right away to buy this book.  Well I picked up couple of books for him too and not to forget a book for my daughter and to close the bracket my sweet maid is also a book lover. (it is always.. if BOOKS ,then for the family-LOL..)So I picked up a Hindi book on Premchand for her also.
  Although the book was quite overweight and will I ever be able to complete this book.  But believe me I thought may be I would be able to read  4-5 pages a time only.  It is this book about billionaires which is really this entertaining and brutally honest.  A thoughtful and intimate biography of the globe’s wisest investor.
 So what are you Reading today?

OLD IS GOLD..

I had a pretty good collection of very old coins.  Coins which are more than 100yrs old from all over the world.  But the collection is of no use unless it is seen and appreciated.  For days they  were closed in the bottle.  That is absolutely no value.  Then I thought of giving them there space and the actual importance. 
As OLD IS GOLD...

 Just got the frame from the market.  And can you be believe it,  I made the mount myself and pasted the coins on it.  Not very tough but took good time. 

 and as goes the saying HARD WORK PAYS..
I placed it at the corner with a height just above the sofa,  
So that it can be visible and readable if required.
That made an antique innovative corner in a contemporary home.

some more rains..

drops of water on the leaves just after the rain,  
which is so mesmerizing
the first lemon on my lemon tree
the curry leaves draining with water
Water droplets just after the rain on the window
so fresh and beautiful
and last but not the least
my baby's feet,  which are not that small now

loving the rains..


The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk.
The rain makes running pools in the gutter.
The rain plays a little sleep-song on our roof at night...

Cleaning with magnificence

I always needed an Aluminum Ladder for day to day life and use. But just I was hesitant to buy it because once it is not in use I had seen it lying at places soaking under the sun throughout like a trash or junk in verandas or porch.

But then I got an idea, bought it the same day from the market. I tell you guys it is worth buying ... actually so useful.

And then got it painted and WHEN NOT IN USE, it came out to be a stunning WHITE stand with shelves for pots standing pretty in my kitchen garden



And now my  ladder is not just a ladder as it had a make over to a beautiful artifact of my kitchen garden when not in use.
