This and that's of my life..

Pin It Now! Hello ! Is anyone here ? This space had almost lost hope of a post from me. But i love this space. Because it welcomes me every time I come here. Without any ifs and buts. Its there listening , waiting for me - to pen down my thoughts, and all what's going on around me. And there's lots !!
  • Its Halloween time and part of the year that makes me the happiest. All the Indian and western festivals lined up. We at home are all set for Halloween party at Aamod's school. I volunteered to make some treat bags. I made them using these cute pumpkin craft on Martha Stewart's website. The little ones been telling everyone that "we are having lots and lots of pumpkins at home".. :) If you need any more details for the goodie pumpkins leave me a comment and i can post it for you. But its really easy. All you need are some pipe-cleaners and some orange colored paper napkins.
  • We are giving in to the gorgeous weather we are having here. Trying to spend the evenings in the park and weekends visiting what else but pumpkin patches. We spent last weekend at Dewberry Farms. The little one enjoyed the hay rides, pony rides and all the activities. This place does not have lot of options for vegetarian food so its better to pack a picnic lunch if you plan to visit it soon.  
  • I created an account on pinterest last month and what can i say- am hooked. I am learning a lot of new recipes, time and money saving tips and tricks and a whole lot of DIY. I have created 3 boards and pinned a few brilliant ideas - come over and have a look. My id - suparna shaligram.
  • I happened to spend some time at the local barnes and nobles bookstore where i found this book- The happiest toddler book by Dr Harvey Karp. I ordered it from the local library. It has lots of strategies to deal with kids emotions early childhood years. I found that I was unknowingly implementing parts of the suggested strategies but it was good to confirm and understand more about them. As our families get nuclear its a welcome reassurance.Its a good read for anyone having growing kids.
That's what's up with me. I have lots more planned for the coming weeks. 
Will keep you posted. :)
