Parents visit

They have reached here safely last Saturday and the travel was smooth. Snow welcomed them and they are still in the process of getting settled with the winter.

Appa, unlike his usual self has not stepped out yet and Amma is happy inside the house wearing her fleece all the time and settling inside the cozy blanket. They are still on jet lag sleeping most part of the day but just their presence around gives me some calmness. Not to mention, amma had landed with all possible goodies along with goodies from in-laws side as well. There is no space at dining table to even accommodate one more sweet box. We are trying our best taking turns in visiting the table to free up some space there ๐Ÿ™‚

We are still catching up on all the stories form homeland and looks like we will never be done with it. Adi is super excited and she made this snowflakes pattern to welcome them.ย Obviously the snowflakes pattern took her lot of time to make but it was a good time pass as we both were impatiently waiting at home for parent’s arrival. She made four of them one for each of us.


Once they reached home Adi was not sure how to react for few hours. She wanted to do something special so asked them for their favorite shape and made this painting for them.

I prepared poha with peanuts and potatoes for dinner (it was a new dish for them) and filter coffee for amma. I don’t know if she liked the coffee or not but she was more than happy that finally someone else is serving her a cup of coffee after so many years of cooking and coffee making by herself ๐Ÿ™‚

I prepared the lunch on Sunday too as amma was still recovering from the jet lag and guess what appa said. He said my kuzhambu (curry for rice) was better than amma’s but he said that at her absence ๐Ÿ˜‰ otherwise he would be at trouble for food after returning to India ๐Ÿ™‚

Kitchen has been promptly taken over by amma from today and there I get some time to breathe now. Bliss is my state of my mind now.
