August’s Misses And Kisses

After several friendly nudges from JMS & G3, my friends from US, I began writing “Dear Diary: Misses and Kisses” from January 2009, sort of a monthly summary of all the tides and ebbs. Now that I am a blogger,  the caption has evolved slightly but the concept remains the same….. Kisses: Starting the blog…

Apology Time

To all three B’s: In one of my earlier post, I wrote: For years he had been talking about this momentous, upcoming event and now nary a word from him nor his family. It now appears that ‘nary a word’ is incorrect in this issue. Apparently ‘Papa B’ had sent an e-invite to my office-id…

Clay anyone: part 2

Remember the “lovely lillies’ and ‘pretty pansies’ I shared earlier…well my new guest was so impressed with it all that he decided to help himself to an all ‘you can eat buffett’ resulting in this sorry plight:the greedy fella did not even spare the plant……. Thankfully, my new pest guest, hasn’t mastered his ballet lessons…

Thanks “Honey-Bunch”…

I am blessed: with each friendship I not only gain a friend, but also gain an entire family. I revel in their successes and joys, I ache in their miscomings and pains. Since June 2008 I lost a friendship to ‘Egotitis’, and I realised the full extent of the pain when I saw some pictures…

Coffee musings….

I admit I’m an unashamed coffeee lover. Most mornings eventhough I crave for a cuppa and manage to brew a fresh pot, I have no time to sit and enjoy one. Often times, monday morning coffee at my office-desk is the first whole cuppa since friday, that I enjoy without zapping and re-zapping ewww…..indeed! Today, I…

Roaring Lion Lays Down His Mane But NOT His Hope: Teddy, my HERO…

I admit I had recently been wallowing in some self pity and self-indulgence but this morning at five am, the news of  Senator Edward Kennedy’s transition, jolted me right out of it. “Noooooooo”, was my first thought, but then as I heard the radio announcer drone on his bio, I knew I had to post…

With Friends Like JMS….

After these next two weekends I am about to experience the much dreaded ENS- yes, the  ‘Empty Nest Syndrome’. For the last ten-twelve years, my life has practically revolved only around my son and now he is leaving home to pursue his higher studies. He has made me very proud; securing admission in a prestigious…
