With media all over the world bustling with different views about the largest coup of our times, I guess my head is overcrowded with the overflow of too much information than I could handle. Can i blame myself? Who doesn't have the curiosity to know everything?
The weather has been so good here with brisk dry air and blue cloudless sky , except yesterday with the drizzling and a shade of gloom. I am really making use of all the sun , thawing myself from the deep frost that the season gone by left on me , basking sunshine in my balcony with some interesting reads and lots of pink lemonade. The routine morning walks with friends is keeping my body fit and giving a refreshing start every day. How are you making use of the good weather?
Hilarious stage shows, hiking trips , exploring spring bounty in farmers market.... filled my last weekend and I am so looking forward to all the weekends to come , to have lots of trips and loads of fun :)....
