Tis' the season

It was sweetober October! The month started off with a birthday followed by festivals, Navarathri & Deepavali and ended with Halloween! I am not the one to say 'no' to sweets but after devouring all the goodies, handling the guilt part is what I don't like! One plus with October Deepavali is it is still warmer and the fireworks more enjoyable!

One day in a year our household and 'on time' go hand in hand is when the clocks go back for the winter! Or so until last year! Now the kids are adjusting to time changes faster than me! Many a time I have 'polambi-fied' about the day lights saving practice. But if at all the country decides to stop this practice please do not follow Russia's example and stay in summer time foerever! I have come to like the clock change in fall for that one extra hour and I prefer slightly brighter mornings!

P.S. - Even after few days of the time change, not all clocks are adjusted in our house and so everytime I look at the clocks with the wrong time, I get this "OMG" feeling.

After attending 197 bday dinners, 253 wedding day dinners, 304(*) 1st bday dinners from Jan to Oct, even looking at Diwali sweets in Nov became a nightmarish experience.

So much so, I once went to a potluck taking cookies for dessert saying 'since you all must be fed up of cake/sweets like me'. I guess they all thought I was a sadist or psycho.

*304 days from Jan 1 to Oct 31.

Junior asleep by 9pm since last week brings tears of joy. Daylight saving vazhga.

POLO T-Shirts For Men on when the leisure shirt do not forget that matches lining Khaki, the cotton duck and so on similar leisure style pants as well as the walking Polo for women polo, the color chooses you to be possible to have one's wish.
The skin black yellow person puts on POLO L-Sleeved Shirt For Men, ashThe tone shirt will appear blacker yellow, and will create the somewhat dirty POLO Sweaters For Men; The skin fair person puts on the sharp shirt to be able to serve as contrast very much the skin fairly, but this will cause the man will often appear too feminizes, will lack the male character, certainly this also will be place which of this summer fashion the neutral tidal current will surge long sleeve for women.
The fat person puts on the small squares lead the T-shirt unlined upper garment to be able to appear somewhat rigidly adheres, crampedly, should choose the belt point's big collar shirt to be more appropriate. The big solemn polo shirt puts on the shirt not to need to choose on that kind of collar to decorate has the decoration button's shirt, although just is at present POLO Shirts For Men.
