Thinking..Thinking blogger award.

Bob-Kat had a nice surprise for me yesterday. She awarded me a “Thinking blogger award.” Yesterday being All fools day, I did not react immediately. The waspish cynic lurking inside me felt happy, but did not want to be fooled .So I waited until today. Then I realized I had been a fool anyway, as her post was dated 31st March!

Part of the honour of being nominated is also that I get to give it to five blogs that make me think. There are many blogs that I like, but ones which make me think---well, I had to really think! I went by contents of the blog,on what issues the blogger wrote about .Did it make me stop and think? Did it affect me in any way?

myspace layouts, myspace codes, glitter graphics


Here are my choices.

Love is stronger than pride by Devil mood : She posts about different things. At times, introspective, at times about issues that she feels strongly about, at times photos, but every time, it makes me think!

Forever England by Tim Young: It’s a poetry blog. I was delighted when I first discovered it. He writes instant poetry—some of them really touch me deeply—and almost all of them make me think.

TO&TFTBG by Paul: He posts a collection of quotes or things that inspire him or make him laugh. He writes about movies that affect him too. Each of his posts really make me think.

Hooky Beach by Somewhere Joe: Each of his posts are a masterpiece. His simplicity and his acute power of observation, and also what he writes about, really makes me think.

The fifth one, I really could not decide. There are so many posts that made me think. But not the whole blog. There is a blog (Damn,it’s a shitpot) which I discovered recently and one of the posts made me think . Pardon the language—I don’t find it offensive. But if you do, please refrain from reading.Tyler Durden's latest post made me think too.
One of Gawpo’s posts really moved me and made me think.A lot.

The participation rules of the award are simple:

1) If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think
2) Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.
3) Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote.

  1. It was my pleasure :-) Your blog always makes me think, even if it's simply about how lovely your art work is and looking at the composition and taking something from it.

    I will have to check out the blogs you have made an award to sometime soon. They sound like a good read.

    Fancy thinking I would April Fool you! To tell you the truth I completely forgot what day it was!

Daughters are so special. Post 3

Hello dear friend :)

This is my third post in this blog marathon. Those of you who are  here because of my Instagram post do hit subscribe that you see on top of this page, and you will receive my posts in your inbox.


Writing this like a letter, feels very nice. It is as though I am pulling up a chair, sitting down in front of you and having a chat with you. I read all your comments in my last two posts, and I have replied too! I think that is the nice part about blogging--that we can connect one-on-one, through our words.



Today, I went out with my daughter, and we had an amazing time.When she and I go out, I always drive my car and she plays her choice of music. It's a girls trip, and we cherish this time that we spend together. (you can see stories of our day on my Instagram handle)

I come from a family and background, where women never worked or drove a car. My mother has never worked, neither had my grandmother nor had my great-grandmother. None of my aunts-- either on my m…

A few books I LOVED reading this year. Post 13

Hello there,

It has been twelve whole days since I started my blog marathon. Time has sped by so fast. In fact, the whole year has sped by so fast. It feels like just yesterday that I was preparing my 'reading wall' which I do a the start of the year. I started this two years ago.
If you want to know what a reading wall is, clickHERE.

It's basically a list of books that I read the entire year.

Many of you have been asking me to recommend the 'best books'. I am reluctant to do so, because tastes vary. It is like  person asking me to  recommend what they should eat. The recommendation would  depend on whether they like South-Indian, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Japanese , Singaporean or any other specific cuisine. It would be meaningless to recommend Idlis to someone  who hates South Indian food.

This is the reason I do not recommend books. My tastes tend to be eclectic. What is outstanding for me might me egregious for you. So, unless I know the person very well, I …

A quick and easy DIY for clearing charger clutter. Post 4

Hello!

How are you doing today?

The one thing I dislike very much is clutter. Clutter bothers me, and messes with my mind. I am a huge fan of the Konmari method. If you do not know what that is, and you want to get rid of clutter in your life,  do read Marie Kondo's Life Changing Magic of Tidying. I highly recommend it.

Here's what I did today.



Neat, isn't it?

It isn't hard at all. I made it myself. This is how I did it.

Step 1: Find a suitable box. I used an amazon box.



Step 2: Make a neat slit in the side.



Step 3: Place your extenion plug inside the box, and take out the wires through the slit.


Step 4: Decorate the box! I used washi tape for the edges to make them neat.




And oh--I also made extra hole for the phone charger wires to come out.


Since that side is against the wall, I didn't bother to decorate it, as it is hidden.


I was mighty pleased with it. :)
