Today's post is a photo post--these are snapshots from my home.

View from my rooftop  






Gift from a good friend. Roses and a bottle of wine                                        







A part of my garden. Can you see Mr.Frog? Sadly my dog murdered him :)




No matter how insane the day, this is my moment of peace. I light this lamp daily.      




Hot summers call for cold watermelon juice.On my balcony.  




Love this Buddha. A gift from another good friend.In the background is the book I am currently reading.




Yes, I grew this and it bloomed. Oh the joy!









I am not very fond of Jasmine but Satish is. I grew this for him.   




If you are sharing pictures from your home, I'd love to look :) (I love looking at home pictures)

And if you haven't read Satish's guest post, please read! I love how he wrote it.

See you tomorrow, folks!

  2. There is a quote regarding home which I remember since a long time don't really know the author -
    "Home is a place you grow up wanting to leave, and grow old wanting to get back to"

    Loved your Watermelon juice pic... Cheers to the home

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.



So, your favourite character Ankita is back! This book takes off where the first one ended. The first book has an epilogue which tells you what happened fifteen years later.
