Here are some fun questions Donna Farmer created for an electronic swap that I am a part of.

She has not only been so creative with these questions, an

I was so tickled answering them that I thought this would make a fun read !

Would you rather go to a movie or to dinner alone? I’d go on a movie alone. Infact that’s been on my mind since quite a while ! Touched out Mommy ! If someone knows what I mean.

Would you rather always say everything on your mind or never speak again? I’d never speak again. Better to be quiet than be misunderstood.

Would you rather make a phone call or send a text? If its family then I’d make a phone call. For everyone else – text

Would you rather read an awesome book or watch a good movie? Watch a good movie. Not too patient with books

Would you rather be the most popular person at work or school or the smartest.  Smartest. Popularity will follow.

Would you rather put a stop to war or end world hunger? End world hunger. If someone’s heard of HANGRY ! Probably ending world hunger would reduce probability of someone deciding to go on a war.

Would you rather spend the night in a luxury hotel room or camping surrounded by beautiful scenery? If its glamping then I’d do that, coz I don’t want to fear critters and creepy crawlies while I am surrounded by the beautiful scenery at night

Would you rather explore space or the ocean? Both seem to be un-ending. I think I’d go with the familiar territory first – the ocean.

Would you rather go deep sea diving or bungee jumping? Deep see diving . Familiar territory explanation !

Would you rather be a kid your whole life or an adult your whole life? I have been pretty adult my whole life and it’s done well for me ! Being a kid AT TIMES doesn’t hurt !

Would you rather go on a cruise with friends or with your spouse? Spouse and my baby

Would you rather lose your keys or your cell phone? None . Really scary question.

Would you rather eat a meal of cow tongue or octopus? None again. What a tormenting question for a pure vegetarian Hindu girl. And did someone say Octopus ??? I’m petrified of them.

Would you rather have x-ray vision or magnified hearing? Wow. Me and my brother have these kind of silly discussions so often. I usually pick the “read people’s minds” power from X Men team. However magnified hearing sounds interesting too

Would you rather work in a group or work alone? Work alone. I do that even today and professionally since 2008

I enjoyed answering them all. Thankyou Donna 🙂

Favorite Pictures from October

Here is a round up of some of my favorite pictures from last month. Unlike every month and every day that is so busy for me, the last month – aka October was truly exceptional. I was literally struggling to keep up to the 3rd page of my mental to do list ! We celebrated Navratri festival and then had my daughters Mundan ceremony , followed by an Ear piercing ceremony, an outstation travel and then there was Diwali. Amidst all this I had an episode of my phone falling in the water, to frantic back ups to a new phone and set up. So with all said and done, I am hoping to slide in the “regular busy” schedule soon!

Below are some of the favorite images I came across the last month :

  1. Indian Women – Garba attire. I found this picture online and loved it instantly. Back in the days, myself and my sister would be dressed very similarly and we would go to play Garba and Dandiya (the famous dances of Gujarat state in India ) with our friends and neighbors in our community. What I love is the riot of colors all in one garment and yet it doesn’t look overdone !

2. My 1.5 year old raiding the kitchen ! It is customary to deep clean one’s house before Diwali because it is said that the Goddess of Wealth – Laxmi likes clean, positive and happy homes and that she would always stay there. Now who wouldnt want that ! So any typical believer along with their cleaning staff would be found cleaning and scrubbing and scouring their houses and offices to welcome their beloved Goddess in their lives and make her a permanent resident with them. We weren’t any different ! This is that time of the year when no staff complaints of extra cleaning or scrubbing either (coz they are going to be rewarded and gifted too 🙂 lol ! ) So there we were – with the kitchen day planned and successfully cleaned. The tiles, counters, cabinets , shelves et all glistened.. And by the afternoon, my explorative toddler calmly strolled her way to the kitchen and figured a way to poke her little fingers in the fridge and the cabinets. The result is for all to see !

3. The other two images are of me as a proud mommy – coz my daughter (with the help of her baby sitter) created her very first wall art. She used sponge stamps and non toxic paints and created Apple trees with sunflowers on them and maybe a huge patch of what we are assuming is grass !  This is such a precious keepsake for us.

4. I was sent an appreciative image of an Indian Journals client. She was so kind to send an image of how she uses the journals and how she keeps them.
