Tricky minds !!

Today was sad .Why! Hormones or just my surroundings. I just wanted to cry my eyes out but I couldnt as I had to prepping the kids for their exams.The weather is good and I just want to run to the beach and run through those cold waters.Shish,Maybe its just that I want to kick someone's ass.
I just went to meet my neighbour and played with her toddler for a while.I let me slobber all over me and puke all over me.Its just that babies calm me down.Then I came home and changed and now Im listening to some good hindi pop songs.Now I just want to dance to them.
Drinking some grapefruit juice,I love it.My friends think Im crazy to be able to drink grapefruit juice with such ease.I even love drinking bittergourd juice.I used to see my dad taking slow sips of these trying to control his blood sugar and I would take a sip whenever he wasnt looking.
I knew of this girl,my room mate who ate lemons.she would suck on them and then chew on them.Well,kids try many things.I knew of someone who loved eating toothpaste especially the gel ones.
hehehheee....Those were somedays.
I used to sit in this room and look over the window at these cashew trees.Especially when the red ones.I used to flick 2 or 3 and then eat them.Oh ,India is absolutely great.I miss it so much.
We had this small villa initially.It was in the center of this 1 acre land filled with long green grass and coconut trees and some fruit trees and red rose bushes.I would come to stay for a few days during hols from the hostel and I couldnt wait to get up every morning and stand outside my main door and look at the garden and all the greenery around me.you could smell the grass soemtimes especially after it drizzled a bit.There isnt anything on this earth that can smell as fresh as earth when its slightly wet.offfff!!
And then I would walk by the flowers and watch these beautiful butterflies with their colorful wings.I was actually just struck by how nature at its simplest best was.I caught these dragonflies and butterflies,hold them in my hands and then let them fly.
I never wore shoes or slippers.I liked the way how the mud and rocks felt against my feet.I climbed these tiny mini hills you could call them and look all around me and i felt like a queen.I told myself I was this fairy queen looking after her fellow fairy friends and flowers and plants and all.It was amazing.Yup! As a kid I was an Enid Blyton fan.Hehehe...
I watched cattle moo all over the grazing lands and munch on grass all day long.I too had a cow back then.Her name was Shimo.When she and I got acquainted,I would pet her for hours and run my hands all over her.I even spoke to her.She licked me sometimes,and yes...it was all sticky and rough.I even had a cat who never stayed on our premises during the day but she would slip in between legs at night and fall fast asleep.I had a dog who never barked at anyone.:>...We tried everything but it was a jolly dog.It was friendly to all strangers.
We even had this piglet called chickoo.He oinked all day,rolled over wet mud and ran all over the palce when we tried to put it back in its pen.He was a vegetarian and loved my dad a lot.He walked beside my dad wherever he went and would make this sad noise when we washed him and put him in the shed.
A rush of memories have swept through my mind now and am not able to continue now.I guess I simply miss my folks a lot.Its been 7 years and 8 months.Cant help it,sometimes I just feel lost.

Beauty secrets : Multani Mitti

I was 20 when during my monthly eye brow shaping,my beautician was like you should try a facial.But I refused As my skin has been always too sensitive and the marks of anything and everything from simple burns to blemishes takes years to fade off.That's when she told me about multani mitti.As usual I didn't pay any attention initially but she was like,you can clean your face weekly with this mud pack made with rose water and your skin would be simply clean.I tried it whenever my eyes caught hold of the pack in my cupboard.Then 10 years later,it again became a staple in my cupboard but now I use it every week.

What is Multani mitti?

Its a type of mud,smells like clean mud and feels like mud on your skin.I reckon if one uses chemicals like bleach on the face,this would be a lovely soothing alternative in your beauty regimen.

I buy this chunk of of this rock like thing and sit at home and break them into small pieces and grind them in a mortar and pestle.I was scared to use my gr…

Foods to avoid if you have rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

Eating fruits and vegetables may help to prevent rheumatoid arthritis. A study from the Mayo Clinic showed that women who ate diets higher in fruits and vegetables were less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis. This study doesn't show that eating fruits and vegetables will improve the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis; however, everyone should eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables every day.

There are some foods that may help you feel better by reducing inflammation. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids may help to reduce inflammation. Choose foods with healthy fats such as fish, walnuts, soy, canola oil, flax seeds and pumpkin seeds. Here's a list of my favorite anti-inflammatory foods.

Camel

You must be wondering what the heck has she written about urine.Is it one the tests she had taken or some disease.

Actually yesterday some friend of my husband told him that eating camel meat stew is beneficial for people with muscle and bone problems and that very soon he would make me feast on it.I personally love camel meat,its tastier,lighter than beef,its just a beautiful meat but its a little more time to cook than the normal meat.So I thought why not find out the benefits of camel meat and while doing so,came across this article about camel urine benefits.

Don't go yuck people,I think in India,people bathe in cow urine when they have some skin infection.My brother and I did this as very small kids.We had been on a holiday to India and developed some skin eczema or chicken pox or measles....so as usual my granny said try this as well when the western medications failed.I know camel meat may not be available in India as commonly as out here but there is nothing wrong in know…
