Sometimes at the end of a long, tough week, this works wonders.

Bonnet House

You know what’s a pleasure?

Going somewhere that is completely outside of your daily existence.

The difference may be as simple as an estate house, bright and colorful,
with perfectly sculpted gardens.

Or it may lie at the edge of a pond, so clear
you can see the bottom even as it falls away from you.

Perhaps, it is in the treasures you spot tucked away in a corner somewhere.

Or, in that chance encounter, coming across the mated pair of swans
just as a groundskeeper drives up to feed them.

Yes, that might be it.

Homecooked Food

One of my greatest pleasure in life is food. I can talk about it, think about it, browse about it, dream about it, and first and foremost enjoy eating it. (Thank God for my high metabolism.)

I'm blessed that two wonderful cooks, my mom and mother-in-law, have taught me so much, which makes possible for many a fine meal to be cooked at home, and is evident in this meal of curry chicken, assam prawns, aloo gobhi, naan (courtesy of my cousin), and rice.

Of course, the ultimate is when the mommies visit, because that just means I can do all the eating and very little of the cooking! LOL.

A Glorious Sunset

Is there anything as breathtaking as a sunset? I can almost hear the day issuing a last 'hurrah' as it gives in to the night. In this Floridian sunset in March, it is as if the the winter months are saying "goodbye," as they coax these glorious colors from the sky to herald in the Spring.
