Being aware...

One of my goals in life is to become a vegetarian. But, I have to start some where and I had the perfect opportunity to do so. I was away from my family with a coworker on a conference. My coworker being a vegetarian become a huge influence. I have not being eating meat for past week. I have been dutifully preparing them for my family though. 

This has open up so many options for me. I am not a compete vegetarian yet but I am doing my best to get there. The most difficult part will be giving up eating fish because I grew up loving it! 

This is my breakfast! not too bad this is a combination of grains such as quinoa and millet. Greens  - Kale, chick peas, soft tofu, sautéed onions and hint of thai red curry powder and smoke paprika. I relished the earthly taste with a slice of toasted whole wheat bread.

Little note cards and post it notes get stuck in the physical mailbox at work. I have been pondering on this for a while how to make elegant invitations for everyday activities. This was in my to do list for a long time. I decided to work on it by simply stamping them. 

I love to get hand written notes in my mailbox. The idea of someone taking the time to write a note is a luxury in the society we live now. I know I have fit in to this society with connivence on many occasions complaining who has the time to write “thank you” cards e- cards are great! But there is a side of me waiting for those hand written notes and cards. 

Here are some samples of cards I have been working lately.

Long Waited Northeaster...

According to the forecast we were hit hard with wet and wild weather. This was m second experience of a blizzard. As of Thursday afternoon we were not sure about the school cancelation. Finally when they decide to cancel the school on Friday and wait to snow fall I was relieved about the school cancellations. Both schools were out actually many schools were out.

I wanted to take few pictures before the snow fall and after the snow fall. It was a lot of snow and continued until Saturday mid afternoon. We finally decided to dig our way out to the driveway to clear the vehicles. Panduka and Niegel decided that they can handle the job without me and I was relieved from the news. That was a lot of snow for eight to nine hours. The wind was a bit out of control. I saw lightening in my town with snow fall. We almost had our power out but it came back. 

The snow was dry, fluffy, and light. It was almost two feet. The drifts around the kitchen window was almost high as the window. We are ready for more snow this Thursday!
