The aches and pains are gradually lessening but the Terrace Floor remains hard and tough---I have started carrying a Cushion for my poor knees----to be used as padding when I kneel!!However at night I take stock--what is more uncomfortable--my butt--my knees or my shoulders--all are in the race to come out the Winner!!
The Weather is very chameleon like--changing from pleasant in the mornings and evenings to becoming blisteringly hot in the afternoons--I'm feeling every bit of my age if I have to step out during that period----one good thing may come of it though--the sloshing around of the liquid in the stomach automatically helps to keep the portions at mealtimes small--so it could turn out to be a blessing in disguise!!However I spend my time these days by finishing my cooking early in the mornings--come 11 a.m. and the Kitchen turns into a Furnace!!It has been a long time since I've spent the entire Summer in Mumbai--and this one promises to be a right royally fiery one!!
I'm on a Pickling spree--the last of the Red,sweet Delhi Carrots and Turnips are being pickled together with Daikon Radishes--and even though I say it myself the result is truly awesome!!The bottles of Lemon syrup and raw Mango " Panna" are safely ensconced in the 'Fridge as coolers for anyone who visits during the summer.Making these reminds me of Sudhir's penchant for offering a cold drink to everyone who rang our Doorbell--I had a bevy of Courier Boys dropping by to offer their Condolences to me after he passed away!!My Yoga Sessions ensure a deep sleep at night--and I'm becoming adept at focussing on the work at hand---and not allowing my thoughts to stray deeper into the sensitive territory locked away in the recesses of my mind!!!

    My dad always says he doesn't understand why they call them "The Golden Years" and I'm starting to understand what he means. Make sure not to do too much during the heat of the day and enjoy your Lemon syrup and raw Mango!

hugs...Mary Anne
