Last 4 days i was home alone.. vasanth had gone to NY and the first day i was happy to be lazying around.. second day got up on my heels n finished the unpacking i had to do.. 3 rd day i really got so bugged..I was getting so angry and had nobody to shout at.. the reason for anger was my anxiety.. i am waiting eagerly to know the results of my H1. yeah it has become more like an exam now cos they put lots to decide whose application needs to be chosen to process!!! My goodness..Isn't that weird??Staking hard on the teeny weeny, itsy bitsy luck that i may occasionally be surprised with and keeping my fingers crossed i am awaiting the deciding factor of my future still.. but no news.Anyways, the fourth day i e Thursday however passed quickly as i was on a day long preparation to receive him :)
Cooking was on full spree and so was cleaning.. ;) i baked my first cake.. made of almond..N no i did not use any cake mix ;-) (in picture) N the blunder i did was, of course i had to commit atleast one.. i put a pinch of custard into the mix thinking it is baking powder..However, the cake did come out well.. (obviously, thats wat i wud say) no jokes apart it did taste gud. he he

N though i was alone at home, i have found a companion to go for evening walks with. Mrs S is a gud company n with the 1 hr walking that we do in the evenings hope to stay fit n fine like my cousin PS :)

And here r the pics of my fireplace n the french windows i had promised u.

PS is your cousin?
Oh, I didn't know that! :)
You've got a couple (at least) of lovely corners in your home and the cake sounds delicious. Almonds make great sweets, it's very traditional over here.

Sometimes it's really nice to have the palce to yourself but I can totally empathise with that feeling of having no-one to be angry with. Good luck with your H1 results - I'm waiting for exam results so I know how you feel.

Nice fireplace btw :)
