Enchroma Color Blind Glasses
My husband suffers from Deuteranomaly, red-green color blindness, which makes him unable to differentiate yellows, reds, oranges, browns, and greens. What he sees is like a faded version of our world. So yesterday, he finally got his hands on the EnChroma color blind glasses, and since then, he hasn’t stopped exclaiming on how red are the cushions in our living room. Or how orange my leggings are! He is seriously questioning my fashion sense 😛
It is wonderful to see him laughing with child-like amazement. We watched a lot of Bollywood songs after and he just couldn’t stop gushing over Deepika Padukone’s Yellow Kurta and SRK’s blue jacket. I did try the glasses on but to me, it felt like I was looking through sunglasses. Seems like the saturation level in his eyes got amped up. Isn’t it amazing how technology has come to the rescue?
This reminds me of our shopping trips years ago. I would ask his opinion on a lovely pastel t-shirt and he would be like, “Ye kiya color hai“. And then would proceed to pick the most yellowish or blood-red tee instead. 😛
I find it really hard to grow vegetables during winter, but my Mom managed to grow a whole bunch of garlic, mustard, kidney beans, fenugreek, and chickpeas. Overachiever, I tell you. 😛 Below are tender Kidney Beans from my garden that she later cooked with potatoes. A delicious dry sabji of my liking. Frankly, I didn’t even know what Rajma beans actually looked like until she opened a dried pod and showed me.
Before leaving for India, she sowed a new batch of mustard and kidney beans. The seeds have started sprouting and hopefully, I will have a healthy crop soon. With the water restrictions placed in Sydney, I can’t use a sprinkler and have to water them manually once a day.
These vegetables grew easily in our backyard, without any fertilizer. All they needed was proper watering.
Now that spring has arrived, I can start the preparation to grow Tomato, Capsicum, and Chilli.
Baby’s Day Out
“Aaj kuch toofani karte hai”.
Takes the baby out of the house. 😛
I am so grateful that the little one enjoys being outside. It gives both of us an opportunity to get some fresh air. We have taken him to nearby parks a couple of times. Till now he doesn’t make any fuss and loves looking at the world around him.
While he tries to figure out what kind of creatures Australian Wood Ducks are, I get to enjoy some beautiful sunset colors.
