Namaskar my favorite people! It's Friday! Made a quick trip to New Jersey and back on July 4th, Independence day, for a day. Spent some quality time with my friend. It's was a hectic trip, but well worth it. Just finished some grocery shopping for a small get together for some close friends tomorrow at our place. The hard job is done. "The menu". I have planned an extensive Konkani Menu. Will post the pictures in my next post. Little nervous and anxious at this time. Have to feed 15 adults and 10 kids single-handedly. Quiet a task. Planning to wake up early in the morning. Had a good day today. Was remembering good old days back in Manipal. Wish I had a time machine that took me back to those days for sometime. Song of the day: A Geetha Dutt song from 1956. This was before I was born. Wow! I still can connect to it. Nice tune and lyrics. Posting the link.
Looks like, thee net material salwaar was a fashion back then and it has come back now. Isn't that something? Fashion goes through a complete circle. I guess there is only so much a fashion designer can think off.
I know, I am dragging the post about our vacation little too long. I am going to end it today. Day 3 and 4 were the same. Went on water rides ALL day. The children tricked me into taking the scariest water rides. I was glad when it was over. It was so hot and we were walking bear foot. It was like walking on burning coal. Not fun! No one can convince that walking on coal is therapy. I have heard of people who pay money to have this experience. Well, good luck to them.

The 5 day trip was very enjoyable and came to an end very soon. It was now time to turn around and face reality. Got back on 17th, late night and quickly took over the responsibility of a maid at home. Next day, I had to resume work. It took me sometime to get back to routine. Thank god for pictures, I can relive the experience anytime I want. Good night my dear friends. Wish me luck for tomorrow.
