Here is what I did today and thought of today

I think my lucky stars are shining bright. I just won 200 dollars in a drawing for a survey that I had participated in some time ago, you know I never used to win anything so that is why I thank my stars. Now my dilemma is what do I use it for so I went into this store to get a few clothes for me and could not find any that would fit and one thing that did fit had some damaged areas so I had to leave. Well do you have that issue, I mean I am petite so I always have a hard time finding the right clothes for me... I mean I have scoured a number of stores for that reason and I have the hardest time finding the right fit. Sometimes I do wish I had my own custom made clothes and even jeans for that matter ( well that's pushing it too far probably) . Can you believe I have not been able to find a good pair of jeans in the last 7 years.............arrrrrrgh.
I hate going clothes shopping for myself and somehow you just turn into this concierge for your kids even when you go to shop for yourself..........unbelievable....anyways so the clothes shopping trip was a flopshow. While shopping and doing my regular household and motherly duties I was also thinking about my blog and what I will write about today....well I thought of writing all my interests......they are finding the best deals on stuff....I love frugality....I think it is such a virtue and I came across this blog today. It was quite interesting. I also like this website for finding good deals on stuff, since I am a mom I have to confess my undying love for these shoes for babies and early walkers. I love watching Oprah and love ER although I haven't seen both in a long time now but I definitely wish I could. I also found a nice spa that I would want me and my friends to try out....maybe mother's day treat...hmmm ....sounds relaxing already.
Earth day happens to be tomorrow. I am not too much into the green movement but I will definitely do my part in keeping our planet a nice place to live in....GO MOTHER EARTH !!!!!
I think people ought to have more tolerance and gratitude in their lives... I do try and follow that advice.
what i don't like is when people just act "Holier than thou" with me or anyone else for that matter...and believe me I know a friend gave me some lilacs from her backyard yesterday and they smell so nice.........I am also thinking about how I am going to use that big box of mushrooms I got from Costco, and did I mention how it is my favorite places to shop, also on this list are stores like Target, Burlington coat factory (although ours is not that close), amazon, and that is a whole another blog that can be contributed to shopping....anyways time to catch a few zzzz's .....

I was thinking of .......

Today I was thinking of my favorites, hmmm I would like to share a few blogs that I came across in the last few weeks, one of them is designmom, coolmompicks and notmartha and niralimagazine.....also I thought of hearing a few of my favorite songs... like Back at one by Brian McKnight, I believe I can fly, You gotta be tough, you gotta be strong, I will remember you, And I miss you.....Some hindi songs I would have loved to hear today....Goonji si hai, KANK title song, tum pukar lo, Tere liye hum hain jiye...aa chal ke tujhe mein le ke chalun...etc. etc. this list will never end since I absolutely love music. Something I did today was have a nice cup of tea with my friend and the evening... also called my best friend and neighbor at 10:45 pm well I can call her anytime she is a darling.....will share another recipe tomorrow that I tried last weekend.

kuch meetha ho jaye ( Lets start with something sweet)

Hi all,

thought of starting the blog with something sweet and I came across this recipe for mango icecream which is a treat for most Indians who live out of India. Well even for those who live in India. But this recipe calls for Cool Whip which I am not sure if its available in India, anywho I found the recipe on sify in the icecream section. It calls for 1 can mango pulp ( I used Deep brand-Kesar mango pulp), 1 can sweetened condensed milk ( I used Eagle brand but I guess any other brand should work as well) and 1 container of Cool Whip ( 8 Oz.) and 2 teaspoons rose water ( available at Indian grocery shops) so all you have to do is mix the first three ingredients with an electric mixer for 4 to 5 minutes and then add rose water and pour it in an airtight container and garnish with chopped pistachios. It was a hit among all my friends. So yours will be too.

So enjoy this yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmy treat and share it with with people you love........ just like I did.

मेरी बहना है मेरा inspiration blogging के लीये- My blogging inspiration, my sister...

इन्टरनेट की दुनीया से जान पहचान तो थी लेकीन ये blogging कीस् बला का नाम है ये खबर न थी
और मेरे इस ब्लोग का नाम एक हज़ारों में इसी लीए है क्योंकी मेरी छोटी बहन एक हज़ारों में है जीसके साथ में जीतना भी वक्त बीताऊँ कम ही लगता है। यहाँ पर में अपनी पसंद की चीजों के बारे में और ख्यालों के बारे में और खानों के बारे में वक़्त के हीसाब से पोस्ट करती रहूंगी....तो ..............हो जाये shree ganesh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For all of you who do not understand what is written above. Let me translate it for you. I was familiar with the internet but did not have any idea about blogging and if you translate the name of my blog address in English it would be one in a million , why the name, because I was inspired by my little sister who introduced me to the world of blogging and she definitely is one in a million. I can never get tired of spending time with her. I will be posting about my favorites, be it food, thoughts, stuff and lots of other things I like on my blog, so as they say in Hindi lets start with Shree Ganesh which is in the name of God ( Ganesh) and that is how most Indians start any new venture.......Oh and another thing is that the title "LAMHE" means moments... and I have moments where I enjoy things that I see, feel, cook, and give...or share....don't we all ??
