Happy Wednesday! I got dressed, I emptied the dishwasher, I made myself coffee, and now I get to sit on the couch and recover for at least 2 hours. But! I can still manage to do a blog post while sitting!
Watching: I finally started Shetland! It is indeed really really good, just like everyone says. And it makes me want to go live in some wild remote place. Oh well, one more month and our lake house will be open, that’s kind of wild and remote. You know, in the way where you have neighbors on all sides and lots of noise from the bars every night.
Reading: My favorite recent reading, the NHS suggestions for recovery from COVID fatigue. They are talking real COVID, not vaccinated COVID like I had which is so much better, but I still love it. “Lay on your back and breath. Then roll over, and lay on your tummy and breath.” This is the kind of exercise I can DO! Also, reading the suggested exercises, they are exactly what new babies do. Saira and Filmikudhi, this is familiar to you, right? Rolling over, then rolling back? Raising yourself up on your tummy? Then taking a nap?
Thinking: I’m almost done with my coloring books, and I think I am going to sort them out and send half my pretty pictures to my 2 year old nephew, and give half to the 4 year old little girl I know. And then probably buy more coloring books. I keep looking for a Bollywood coloring book, but no luck. At least, not a real one that isn’t secretly just random pictures of Indian things.
Listening: Time for some slow contemplative kind of listening, pulling out old school Rahman
Okay, now a question for you! It’s Ramadan, Passover, and Easter this week. I always find it cool when holy days overlap like that. And it brings up a big big question! Which is better, chocolate bunny, latkes, or Haleem?
Now, I would lean towards chocolate bunny because I love chocolate. But bunnies are just too big, it’s too much chocolate. Latkes, love them, very strong contender. But they are just too carb-y. So, I’m going for Haleem. Soothing soft meat pudding, it’s the perfect food.
I encourage you to try all three options and make up your own mind!
