Am Back!

Am getting back to the coop! My break was prolonged because I was living life king size: yea…a mélange of settling in; consistent bouts of sickness; guests from native place; ladies activities in my community; some fantastic time off in avid reading; and warm socializing. I’m letting you in on my secret: I DID NOT MISS BLOGGING; there was so much good and bad happening!

I want to thank my family (especially my husband Thomas whose cool-headedness is such a turn-on for me :P) and friends for helping me in my madness; easing my palpitations; and turning the burner on my passions.

Here’s a stunner (one of my faves) from photographer and entrepreneur Anoop Negi. This is from the Champakara Boat Race, 2007, Onam Celebrations in Kerala. You can reach him at Fb, Twitter, Flickr, etc. Ogle at this beauty till am back with a delicious piece of cake and a balmier slice of life!

Chow chow!

Hi Thoma-So good to hear from you that you're back. Hope all is well, and you are settled in your new city, and home.
Missed you and your great sense of humor, and funny remarks.
Looking forward to check your new posts, and hear about your long absence and what you've been up to all these months:DDD

Shabs said...

I was wondering who this junkie book was , so how have you been ??? C'mon post girl , I like reading them and yep I am talking about the picnik site :)

Plateful said...

Hey sweetheart, a huge welcome and hugs! Glad to have you back, you were missed!! I still have to reply to your e-mail(s) and by now you must know how bad I'm with messages. But rest assured, I did read it. And yeah Anoop is a great artist and I'm glad I connected to him through Flickr. It's a bit sad that you deleted your account, but good to have you back somewhere. And I know how difficult it is to get back to blogging after a break--I'm too daunted by the prospect of writing and getting in touch with ppl. Lazy too.

Elisabeth said...

Hi Thoma-It's good to hear from you, thanks for commenting. Are you taking another break from your blog?
Miss seeing your posts, but it's good to know that you're around!
Take care my friend...looking forward to see what you've been up to lately!
