January is almost gone and as predicted by whosoever predicts such things, we have already broken our New Year resolutions. Well, at least most of them. Most worthy of mention are our resolves to write everyday and post at least twice a week!
By the way of an excuse, we present the fact that the last few weeks have been extremely exhausting.
First there were some parties – New Year and Bihu ( a harvest festival we mostly associate with yummy food). And then some cultural activities - theatre, dance and classical music festivals that dominate the scene in Delhi at this time of the year.
Some enchanting plays, some mesmerizing music and some soul stirring awe inspiring dance performances.
And then, when things were just about pawfect, Mummy fell terribly sick! To our utter dismay, she kept throwing up. When after a few hours we were sure she was done with clearing her gut of everything that she had ever eaten and drunk, she started at it again! Naturally she had to be on IV fluids and stuff.
Now, when your writer-editor-photographer-chief chef cum general care-taker is out of commission, it is extremely inconvenient. Though we tried to make things easier for Daddy to hold the fort by being on our best behavior and spent all our free time giving Mummy healing hugs, life suddenly went rather topsy-turvy.
Life’s slowly getting back on track again, though.
We always believe in silver linings.
The one in this ‘sickness cloud’? Well, a lot of innovative vegan food is cooking these days in our kitchen. Steamed, boiled and baked veggies, fruits, cereals and pulses. Dressed with fresh ginger( the spice, not the precious Dog!) and coriander leaves and dry fruits and juices!
And we are getting our fair share.
May Mummy stay vegan forever. Amen!
Ginger, Buddy and Shadow
