A walk in the park … and some Handstand
After stocking my fridge with 2 weeks of grocery, my husband and I drove to Nurragingy reserve, a 63 hectare beautiful park in Blacktown Council. He wanted to practice skateboarding, while I found a nice place under the trees to do some sketching. Somehow before leaving we ended up arguing over handstands.
I am still a beginner so it took about one thousand and five hundred attempts to finally get it straight. My husband of course has to show off and tell me how easy they are, so we ended up doing a handstand duel. I couldn’t hold in for even one breath.
And since I am such a bad loser, I haughtily pointed out that his form is wrong and he is making the typical banana shape that instructors warn you about. But well, I will get him the next time!!
This weekend I planted my Tomatoes and Chili seedlings in the garden. I have been protecting them all through winter. So as the temperature is slowly becoming normal, it was time, for the young to go out… into the wild.
Since I had only grown cherry tomatoes from seed, I bought few plants of bigger variety too.
The Onion plant in the picture is grown from a discarded onion that had started sprouting.

Long time since I dabbled with nail paints and stamping. This is my favorite pattern and I keep coming back to it when I want to give my nails a quick makeover.

Started a new zentangle project this week. I am really running out of ideas . After hours of scrolling through Pinterest I zeroed in on a painting of a Japanese girl. The outline I drew is inspired by it. Will be spending the next few days filling it up with zentangle patterns.
If you have been following this blog, you might already know that my husband is an excellent cook. He keeps experimenting with different dishes, adding his own twist. On Sunday morning, while I was busy in the garden, he made a mixture for Lauki ki Thalipeeth . It’s a thick paste of Lauki (Bottle Gourd), Chickpea flour, wheat flour, a bit of cornflour and rice flour, onions, tomatoes, mint along with whole heaps of different spices. Once he started cooking, I simply sat on the kitchen slab and finished off whatever he put on the plate.
