An alphabet Meme

This is a meme from Sunday stealing  which I found interesting enough to do. Most memes are the same stuff that one seems to have done a countless time, if one has been blogging for a few years (which I have. I started this blog in October 2006!)
This one is an alphabet meme  which is the first alphabet meme of 2011.  I have tried to include lots of pictures to make it interesting :)

Here goes:


A is for Age:  



B is for Beer of choice: 

Vodka :P I don't drink Beer :)

C is for Career:
Writer and Artist

D is for favourite Drink:
 
Same as B :)

E is for Essential item you use everyday:  

My  custom made  powered sunglasses. (I have sensitive eyes--they eater easily :-))



F is for Favourite song at the moment:  



G is for favourite Game:








H is for Home town:



I don't really have a 'hometown'. (have never lived in a place for more than three consecutive years) I'm a true Indian.



I is for Instruments you play:


Learnt to play a few tunes on the Keyboard but cannot claim to 'play an instrument'

J is for favourite Juice:


Don't like juices much. Too sweet for me. :P :)

K is for Kids:
Two darlings (well most of the time :-))

L is for Last kiss:
A little while ago from my daughter.

M is for marriage: .

I complete SIXTEEN years of being married (to the same guy  heh heh) this year.

Snakes--I am petrified of them.

Q is for quote:

 
R is for biggest Regret:

For saying some stupid things which seemed terribly important at that time. It truly does not matter now. Wish I could take them back, but they have been said. The spoken word once uttered never can be taken back. It was a big lesson I learnt, in controlling my acerbic tongue.

My TOP TEN books for 2018

I have read 35 books this year. If you are looking to read MORE  in the new year, I have also written a post on it : 5 easy ways to read more and transform your life.

Since the end of the year is a good time to make a list, I thought I would share my TOP reads for this year. (It would be difficult to list all 35 I read, and also I didn't enjoy all)

So here are my top  ten in no particular order. (It was very very very hard to pick just ten).
I am not writing what these books here about as you can easily look them up online,  and read what they are about. Some are non-fiction in this list. They might have been published many years back--but it is just that I read them this year.

1. Nightingale --Kristin Hannah.






2. Childhood friend --Vaikom Muhammed Basheer



3.The Last Email --Mridula Garg





 4. Little Fires Everywhere --Celeste Ng








5. Bad Blood --John Carryrou.

6. Knight of seven Kingdoms: GRR Martin


7. The Little Prince:  Antoine de saint exupĂ©ry

On keeping diaries and journals.

In my book A Hundred Little Flames Gopal Shanker keeps a diary. I have based him on my own grandfather who used to keep diaries.

I too have kept journals and diaries ever since I was a child. This year, I am happy that I managed to write a page, every single day. In addition to my personal diary, I also kept an illustrated journal this year. I found it was great fun. I am sharing three pages from my illusrated journal, to give you an idea of what my journal is like.





You can see the date stamp on the top right corner of each page, and you can see how I have drawn something from my day. Often there is nothing dramatic in my day. They are just ordinary days. But what I like is to find something 'worthy' from that day, and draw it in the journal.
I follow just one rule for my journal--no recording negativity of any kind. I focus only on the positives.

In my personal diary, I write my thoughts--my goals, what I have to do in the future, and generally I record whatever happened tha…

This is how I welcome the new year

Happy happy happy new year folks!!! As I type this, I can hear loud party noises and fire crackers all around.
I dislike parties. I prefer being in a quiet atmosphere with my loved ones, doing something meaningful together.
We always light the lamp at midnight. It's a family tradition. You can see the lamp in the first picture, and my altar, illuminated by the brightness of the lamp in the second.

We thank the universe for ALL the blessings bestowed upon us.
And we welcome the new year with prayers and gratitude.


With this I come to the end of my blog marathon. 31 days, and I have given you all 31 posts!
Leave me comments. I love to hear from you.

 Happy New Year once again. May all your dreams come true.
