Thursday Treats – Ballerina Purse
Do you know that Ballet started almost 500 years ago, in Italy?
Do you know that on average ballerinas wear out 2-3 pairs of pointe shoes per week?
Do you know that a male ballet dancer can lift over 1 & a half tonnes worth of ballerinas? That’s the same as picking up a Hippo! 🙄
Do you know that a three-hour ballet performance is roughly equivalent to running 18 miles?
I am now feeling sorry for myself…. Why didn’t I learned ballet dancing?? Is it too late now? 😦
Wednesday Words – Once A Year Baseball
Most of the Life’s good things comes as a surprise.
It’s surprisingly true when it comes to experience that we encounter now and then, as most of them happen to be unplanned.
This time we stumbled on the opportunity to watch a baseball game. What is so special about this game?
Well, this game is played only once a year. Cool Right??? 😎
We were coming back from Colombia, MO; when we happen to witness a baseball match, going on in nearby field (along highway). As enthusiastic my husband is towards sports, he took the nearest exit and there we were, in that field.
It was a match played and organized by a community, and all the players and audience have gathered there from different places. Some came from Ohio, some Memphis, mid Missouri and all the places within the distance of 5 hour drive.
It was a marathon baseball match which was played between 9 teams. It started in morning and lasted till late evening. They played whole day and their well wisher and cheering squad motivated all the teams, from morning till the end.
Most amazing thing about that match was, that it was played for a charity. All the earnings from that match was donated for a cause to New Horizons Ministries.
It was a great match for a great cause. Kids enjoyed it and me too, as I met some beautiful friends there. All the girls there, were so nice and friendly, I love spending time with them.
At the end of the day, I was content to spend my weekend, watching a good game of baseball, and making some new friends.
Me Happy. 🙂
Tuesday Talkies – RIP Robin Williams – Genies don’t die
Today, I wanted to write about the movie I watched this weekend, but the moment I sat down to write, I heard the sad news of Robin Williams demise. Couldn’t write anything else now.
It feels unbelievable and shocking, how can a person who was making us laugh for decades, has suddenly gone away, leaving us in tears. Indeed it’s true, those who can make us smile are the same ones, who can make us cry too.
Wherever he is now, I wish that he will be happy and peaceful.
Genies don’t die, they just change their lamps. 😦
Mouthwatering Monday – Milk Peda
I love Pedas…. actually I love all the sweets (except those made with besan) 😐 Yumm….
Yesterday was Rakhi (Rakshabandhan), a festival where a sister ties a Rakhi, bond of love, to her brother’s wrist. I don’t like the notion that Rakhis are for protection, but I rather think, that they are a gesture of love between siblings. So, in my household, not only Tisha ties Rakhi to her Brothers, Otu & Renne’s hand, but boys too tie a Rakhi to Tisha’s wrist. More power to Love. ❤
I cherish these moments.
I cherish Milk Peda too…. so coming back to the recipe. 😉
- 400 gm Condensed Milk
- 1 ½ cup Milk Powder
- 1 tbsp Ghee/Butter
