Spring Food

Spring is here and you see lot of tender greens in yard and in grocery store too. Very cheap , fresh. Cilantro at Indian store is so cheap and plenty in spring. At food lion, there was a big bin of coconut and so bought one . Drank all that good water and made coconut , cilantro chutney.

Chutney went well with instant Ragi (Finger millet) Idli.

Easy to make fun meals with seasonal items that are good for us . Also good time to fast , cleanse now . Or just skip dinner one day.

Simple things that are easy to implement and cost nothing .


Must Be Spring

Everything is flowering so must be Spring. I love spring in spring . What’s the point in loving fall in spring or spring in fall?

Many times we love what we don’t have and forget to enjoy what we have right now . When this is gone then we remember , miss it . Immigrants many times keep talking abt how great things are back home and then go back home and talk abt what great things are in other country.

Point is enjoy what you have , where you are right now. This way you won’t miss out anything and better chance to be happy.

Does that make sense ?

This is a true story and not adding any spices to it .

Few weeks back on Saturday morning, I got ready to leave for hike and last moment wore Tanzanite earrings I had bought from Africa. After coming back from hike, took shower and realized 1 earring is missing . Oops…must have lost in shower and gone down the drain. I looked around on the floor , clothes etc. After few rounds, found patch. More disappointment, wish had found stone since I can use some other patch. Look around again but no luck.

Checked you tube videos hoping may be there’s a way. And yes there is . Got my tools ok just screw drivers but could not open the drain . It was too tight . Too much trouble and may be it’s gone down who knows where . I try to let it go and make peace with it. Well, forget abt money but I got from Africa and it’s not a place I go every few years.

Frustrated, I say oh Jesus save my earring. Come on my angel, my hand can not go down the drain but you can . So grab it and put it somewhere I can pick it up from.

Week goes by as I remember it now and then.

Next Saturday morning I get ready for hike . My head is in phone trying to look at google map and putting 1 leg in car , my eyes fell on the car mat and my heart skip a beat, there my earring shining . I just stared it for a minute before picking it up.

Thank you angle and Jesus for saving my earring.

Isn’t it a miracle ?

Lesson learned . Put angel at work.
