5 tips to improve your relationship (blog marathon post 21)

Highlight of my day today was the harvest from our   terrace vegetable garden.

Here is what we harvested:

a) 1.75 kgs of tomatoes.
b) Some long beans.
c) 400 gms bitter gourd.
d)  Some sprigs of Parsley
e)  A bunch of Spinach

f) A bunch of Rocket leaves


Here is Satish posing with the harvest :)




I always feel gardening is a lot like relationships. Here is why

1. You need to invest a lot of time in both.

2.If you neglect it, it withers. If you, in your enthusiasm over-water it, it dies. In relationships space is the equivalent of water. Too much and your relationship suffers. Too little and you kill it.

3.You need a lot of patience for both. You do not get results overnight, in a week or even a fortnight :)

4.You need to weed out the pests ;-) Don't allow them. They creep in slowly without your realising it and you have to be extra careful.

5. It needs a lot of nutrition. In a garden we need to give it nutrients. In a relationship the nutrients are loving gestures like a hug, a kiss, expressing love, a small thoughtful gift or anything that makes your partner feel loved.

  In case this post has motivated you to start your own garden, here is a guide I wrote.
If it has motivated you to think about your relationships, that's great too :)

You can tell me what you think in my comment box. Go on! Don't be shy or scared. I do not bite :)

Till tomorrow--happy nurturing and a happy happy Saturday!

  4. yes, nature teaches us lots of lessons.the need is to look around, introspect every tiny sound ,and action....even the breeze and rustling leaves tells us there is grace even in acceptance.if we are sweet to others, we give a joy even to the grieving souls...

Are you missing a sign? (or What do you think this means?)

Yesterday, something strange happened to me.
In the mornings and in the evenings, I always take my dog for a walk. Sometimes, we go thrice a day.
Yesterday, in the morning, when I went for my walk, I saw this.

 It was a little rope which was lying in my path in the shape of a heart. I just found it cute and amusing. So I clicked a picture and posted in on my Instagram stories. (I keep posting  throughout the day, tiny snippets from my life.) Those of you who follow me on instagram, must have seen this in my feed. You can see my foot and my dog's paw in the above photo.

Then I walked on. A few minutes later, I found another rope/chord lying on my path--and this one too in the shape of a heart! I clicked another photo.

Here too you can see my foot and my dog's paw.

I had read a lot of posts from Erin Pavlina, as in the past many remarkable coincidences kept happening in my life. Erin has written a very useful piece,where she explains how to tell if something is a sign from the…

A few happy things!

Over the last few days, I have been making a portrait every single day, as a part of#Risedrawas well as the May Drawing challenge. Initially I was posting my portraits every single day, on this blog. Then I realised that not too many people read this blog for  my portraits :) Also I do have a dedicatedInstagram page for my art where I post daily!

I didn't see any point in duplicating the same here. Especially because, I also post it on sktchy app. So to post it a third time on my blog, didn't make any sense.

 In case  you do not have an Instagram account, you can still click on the link, bookmark it, and see it from your laptop :)

Apologies to all those who have written to me saying that they are disappointed that I didn't post daily here--this was the reason.



Also a big thank you to all of you who interpreted the 'heart signs' that I had been seeing everywhere.
I want to tell you all, that the heart signs continued the next day too! It was the craziest thing ever…

A nameless relationship--a short story by Preeti Shenoy.

Today---just a photo for you.

This picture was clicked a little while ago. I posted it on my Instagram  with the caption:
Hang on to everything that makes you feel good ! Hold tight and do not let go. Especially true friendships. <3 I am blessed to have some great friends in my life, and that reflects in all my books, all my writing. My novels are mostly heart-warming and always look at the bright side of life.

But what a lot of people do not know is that I write very dark short stories.


One of my short stories has just released.
You can get it here:  http://amzn.to/2osqRam

(It's not an e-book..It is a short story and it is available only on Kindle. You can download the Kindle app if you do not own a Kindle)

That's all for today.
New post tomorrow.
