  3. what was it like before internet? well...it was world full of arrogant postmen and encyclopedias. The postmen knew that they are the only way you can maintain a long distance relationship... encyclopedias were the only way to get all the info you need without going through a lot of trouble.

    Then...it arrived. The internet. It humbled the postmen(though not all) and encyclopedias became equivalent to mere trophies to be displayed to guests.

    P.S., no, not your name, the other P.S., I am not actually back to blogging yet,just coming to update that art blog...
    its a new blog, like a small baby, needs to be fed or it shall die.
    Off I go... 4 days...

  4. Before the internet there were no mobile phones.

    People were much less annoyed on buses.

  8. Without the internet I would not have made contact with many of the people that are now part of my routine. I like to drop by and 'see' people like you! In this way it enriches our lives even if it makes other parts more frustrating at times!

  10. The inter web thingy is now so much a part of our lives ..we take it for granted I think. I am a richer person in so many ways because of it..being able to cite you as one of my best friends though we have never met is the best thing..and it gets better..as there are others out there who I can not imagine living without their words and minds being active in my life and time!I am daily so greatful to be able to do this!

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 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. :)

Like it? Tell me in comments.

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 …
