    Summer 2022

    I finally made the time to write about our summer. After two years of not traveling, this summer was a welcome change. The summer went by in a jiffy – maybe I should say summer vacation because in California, summer is not over until end of October. Our summer vacation was super busy yet relaxing […]

  • Life Updates

    I cannot believe it is already the end of April. As usual I need to catch up with so many things and I barely get the time to go for a haircut on a regular basis. Sometimes I feel like it is only April and so many things already happened this year. Sanjay went on […]

    Happy New Year 2022

    It has been more than a year since I wrote in my blog. As usual 2021 has been a very busy year. I feel like the time is just flying by and I am barely able to keep up. I took up a full time job in February of 2021. A remote job with a […]

  • Halloween


    This year’s Halloween was different like everything else. The kids didn’t get to wear costumes to school or go trick or treating. They were disappointed initially, but we convinced them saying it is better to stay home. They are old enough to understand, but were still not happy. They did play some Halloween games during […]

    Dasera 2020

    This year, the festivities are different. We have the bommala koluvu as usual, but did not visit anyone or have people over in the 10 days of Navratri. It all feels different. I have been meaning to buy more dolls for the koluvu whcih hasn’t happened this year either. Hopefully, next year I will have […]

    Last day of school 2020

    The last day of school usually makes me a bit misty eyed every year! It makes me happy to see all the cheerful faces so proud of their achievements, talking animatedly to their friends, making plans for play dates, saying goodbye to teachers. The school campus feels so lively as it does on the first […]

  • Shelter in Place – Week 2

    This is the second week of us being at home. Here is California, we have the shelter in place orders. We can only go out for groceries and emergencies. Week 1 was generally okay. Schools are closed and we are working from home. I always work from home, so that’s not new to me, but […]

  • 2019 Recap

    2019 Recap

    As we come to the end of a decade, there are so many things I want to reflect on. I started my blog 10 years ago. The main reason for starting this blog was to capture the everyday moments which I might miss otherwise. I think it is safe to say that I did miss […]

  • Proud of Myself

    As everybody knows, mid term elections this year are very important. I am not an ardent follower of politics, but I do have my opinions and I follow the news carefully. After all what happens today affects not just me or my family now, but it will affect my kids in the future as well. […]

  • Trip to Victoria BC – Day 3

    Here is the final post about our Victoria trip. Here are the previous posts – day 1 and day 2. On day 3, we had planned to go whale watching. We checked out of the hotel in the morning, and left for the harbor. Our whale watching boat was in the afternoon.  Since we didn’t […]
