B for Blessings

Blessings are there is every persons life. But we fail to recognize them and thank God for them.
I thank God for my parents. My father passed away 12 years ago and my mother lives alone in Goa out of choice.
I thank God for my three siblings though I may have many problems with them.
I thank god for all my relatives, friends, good and bad.
I thank God for everyone who has come into my life and I have not really appreciated them.
And last of all I thank God for my lovely family.
My husband who has been a good person, worked hard for his family before marriage and now works hard for Magali and me, and gives us a very comfortable life.I  have not been a working woman since over 20 years and I have had a lovely life so far though I may grumble sometimes.
I thank God for our daughter Magali who was a surprise for us. She knows why I am saying that.
So thank you God for all the Blessings given to me .
With love,

A is for Andheri

For those of you who don't know, Andheri is a suburb of Mumbai. read more about it here.
Taken from here.
This is the place where I have spent 44 years of my life, the first half in Andheri (West) and after marriage in Andheri (East). It has changed a lot since we first came here so long ago. It was deserted, & a lot of it actually had forest cover. Now it is becoming pretty crowded. I have fond memories of the cottages and time when I used to play chor-police with my friends. It is basically one of the largest suburbs of Mumbai & I love living here.
This post is part of ABC Wednesday, I have been convinced by my daughter to start the ABC Wednesday challenge so I can post regularly on this blog! She is taking it too!
Have fun,

Being lazy and not blogging

Hello everybody,
It has been a very long time since my last blog post and though my daughter Magali has been after me since a long time to write a blog post, I have been very very lazy.
After my husband arrived on 11th April from Brazil we packed our bags and left for Goa the same afternoon.
The time we spent in Goa really flew fast and we enjoyed our stay there especially at Haathi mahal at Mobor.
After coming back to Mumbai we spent 5 days at a resort here and I was in no mood to blog even though the internet was not disconnected at home.The little time I was at the computer was spent reading the newspapers and doing other things like checking mail and replying back.
We left for Kovalam Kerala with high hopes, because until this holiday we were lucky to have really great holidays in India and abroad. But I was really sorry that I had booked into a resort where the people as well as place was not really to our liking. Everyone in Kerala was out to take us for a ride and to add to it was the weather with Thunderstorms and heavy rain which forced us to spend our time in our room . We did not even have cable TV for 10 out of 14 days we were there at Kovalam. The only saving grace of the place was the scenic beauty.
Life is busy now as my husband is at home and is hungry all the while.So I spend time making some different things for him to eat. Even Magali has cooked a lot of food for him and he jokingly tells me not to get her married soon as she has to cook for him when he comes home. And sometimes when he is angry with her he tells her now that she is 18 years she can get married and go live separately.
Will try to take a tag a few days later.
Take care,
