Refelctions : March


March has been a great month for us. We had great weather for most of the time, except for one snow storm at the end of month. We needed that moisture so bad that everyone was delighted to see the snowfall. We also got to celebrate an Indian festival followed by a fun spring break and of course my first blogiversary.




It’s been a fruitful and happy month for me. Why happy ?   I got to do things which I have always enjoyed – two dance performances ( Indian folk dances) , lots of painting and hiking.  I’m just an average painter, with no training at all. It’s on my wish list to join a painting class in future.


Lately, I’ve been :

Cooking – a lot of  junk food – burgers, pizzas, pastas. All home made though.

Drinking – all kinds of herbal teas,  just to up my water intake.

Dreaming – a lot about India. Too bad we are not going there anytime soon 🙁

Trying – to be regular at yoga.

Painting – Frequently.

Hiking / nature walks – as and when the weather permits.

Pampering myself : Regularly. Bubble baths, mani-pedi,  massages – I need / deserve all of that. And I make time for those. No excuses !

Feeling – Grateful to God.


How was your March ?

I’m hoping that April will be as good as March. And we will get more sunshine in the coming days.

Cheers to Spring !

  7. Hi Monika!

    I love the quote. Lately I was so much worrying about the productivity or seeing results that I was burning myself out. I want to take a step back and probably target everything in your list 😀
