New beginnings...

I love~
* foggy mornings yielding to the lazy sunrays.
* church bells on Sundays
* hot fluffy quilts in the afternoon sun.
* kites flying in the blue skies
* intoxicating fragrance of wild white lilliums that greet me in the living room.
* fluttering of pigeon wings.
* mishti dahi ( sweet yogurt) in earthern pots.
* leftovers from a pre-new year bash.Tried a butterscotch icecream & chocolate cake sandwich for dessert.
Jaipuri blockprint 'Razai' soaking up the afternoon sun
* this, this, this & this.
Would love to~
* read many, many books.
* listen to more classical music.
* bake more. cook more.
* travel more.
* walk more.
* sleep more.
* love more.
* do more.
* blog more;-)
* try this
What would you love to do in the new year? Do share:-)
