What’s better than stalking your first born on Instagram? Getting a life, and getting your own instagram account. I have always wanted to do more with photography. Maybe getting an instagram account will be the nudge that I needed.
After I signed up for a wordpress account, I hung out for another three months before I wrote my first post. Perhaps my instagram account will follow the same path. But I feel hopeful. I really think I will do better with instagram. After all, how hard is it to post a picture every now and then? Plus, I have already made progress. My first picture is up and everything (although, you’ve already seen this particular picture recently).
So. Look me up at (is this how you say it?) momto_2cuddlebugs.
See you over there! 🙂
We bought this little (plastic) tree from the local Michael’s store when little N was two (and little A was a distant bundle of joy planned for “sometime in the future”). We’ve added an ornament or two (and sometimes four or five) to this tree every year. Buying new ornaments over the Thanksgiving weekend has become a much anticipated tradition in our household.
Every year, we consider whether to upgrade to a bigger (or a real) tree. But I find it really hard to retire this cutie, with all the memories that it holds.
Wishing you a wonderful holiday season! 🙂
Little A created this for Heritage Day at school. Growing up, I was a complete “nyana-sooniyam” with respect to Art (and continue to be so). In fact, art was the single biggest terror of my life till 8th grade (when art lessons were finally no longer on the curriculum). So. It gives me immense pleasure that both the munchkins enjoy art so much, and come up with such pretty creations.
Hmmm…. lucky that they take after Dad here, no? 😉
As I was driving little N to a birthday party at a local skating rink, she and I suddenly saw this giant Buddha statue in the backyard of what appeared to be a residence. Turns out it’s not a residence. The sign on the property reads “New Jersey Buddhist Vihara”. We have seen this statue several years back. I recall being just as impressed by it back then as I was on saturday. Somehow, just totally forgot about it with the passage of time.
So. It was such a pleasure to suddenly see it again! Don’t know why all things Buddhist give me so much joy. Surely, I must have had some serious connections to the Buddha in a past life.
Oooh, maybe I was a little Bodhisattava? 😉
Went pumpkin and apple picking yesterday afternoon at our local farm. It was a lovely, sunny, more-warm-than-nippy, perfect October afternoon. Totally my kind of day. 🙂 The apples looked soooo pretty, perched high up on the trees.
Hope they taste as good as they look!
Can’t get away from traffic jam even on an over-priced Gondola ride! 😉
Venice, June 2014.
This little guy drives N nuts. His favorite food is N’s hybrid lilies, but he can (and will) chomp on every other plant in our yard as well.
Personally, I think he’s quite a looker. Plus, with my pollen allergies, don’t really feel too bad for the lilies. Sorry, N. Think I am just more of a zoologist than a botanist. 😉
