Under the weather...

* drinking loads of ginger chai to soothe my itchy throat.
* reading 'under the tuscan sun' and dreaming of a villa in Tuscany where 'The windows are open to butterflies, horseflies, bees or any thing that wants to come in one window and out another' *sigh*
* inspired, I whip up Italian fares and learn the meanings of Antipasti, Primi, Secondi, Cortoni & Dolci:-) Oh yes and colour therapy works for sun-crazy people like me, who have been having a tough time with the cloudy skies.
* After Chai, I think the second best thing is Oats. Yes, milky oats with organic jaggery. It's quite a comfort drink, especially when the warm milky sweetness soothes your parched, itchy throat.
* Talking about sweetness, while cleaning my kitchen, I found two long forgotten goodies we picked up from out trip to the Nilgiris. Rhubarb Preserve from
Beulah Farm and Gooseberry Jam from Last Forest.
* Outlook Traveller has some interesting illustrations apart from some nice photography.
* Listening to I'll love you till the end by Pogues from the soundtrack of P.S. I love you. Have you seen it yet? If not, watch today and cry loads till you feel cleansed.
Have a lovely July!

Love the new masthead. The pics in this post are so soothing. Make me want to just lie down, listen to some music, read a book and well, have a lazy July drinking ginger tea :)

I want to watch P.S. I love you thanks for reminding me about that one. Hope your throat feels better soon. Gargling with Listerine also helps a bit. Hopefully you will see more sunshine soon.

I loved "under the tuscan sun" and dreamed of vila in Tuscany for months after that.

Crying is such good medicine - gets everything out. 'Cleanse' is the perfect word. Initial tears can begin a little tough at first and your body rejects them, but then you just surrender and it just flows.
Lovely post - hope your itchy throat feels better.
