The May Edition

May2018 summerwatermelon gratitude kohleyedme,com

May is here and Oh. My. God! How did the last four months go by so fast?

Let’s be honest. I had so many plans laid out for the year and as always, everything took a back step. But something made me really sad and that was FAILING the A to Z Challenge. Yup. This is the first time in five years of attempting the challenge that I didn’t complete it, which is quite shocking to me. And the best part is that I had all the remaining 6+6 posts ready, including the recipes. But I did not post. I want to blame it on the crappy internet which I faced on the first day but then I knew it in my heart that I could make it if I wanted to. Guess I didn’t.

Anyway, I don’t want to brood over what has happened but instead, want to thank you all for reading my posts and encouraging me. I also want to thank my friends who wrote the guest posts last month – Roshan, Sanch, Rachna, Mehul, Corinne, Shilpa, and Sulekha. Lots of love to you and sloppy kisses from Muffy.

It’s a brand new month with newer plans and goals and all I truly hope for is to be consistent while I enjoy the little pleasures of life.

The May Edition: Of Goals and Gratitude

Reading… I’m currently reading Barefoot Summer by Carolyn Brown. It’s a murder mystery involving three women who have nothing in common. Except for the husband who is murdered. I’m onto the last few pages of the book. Did I like it? You’ll have to wait for the review. That said, I am resuming book reviews on this space again because I miss reading. With the furball taking away all my time, I can hardly read anything. But that’s got to change, right? So watch out this space for book reviews every Sunday.

Playing… with Muffy 🙂


Watching… Nothing really! Husband and I caught up on the last season of Game of Thrones last Sunday. All the seven episodes in one night. Call us crazy!

Trying… to burn some calories and get back in shape. As always! But it’s high time that I do something about it. Actually, everything about it. So, yeah. Health is a priority this month.

Cooking… This and that! I want to try out more salads because I have never really liked them.

Eating… Junk! Always going for the crunchy munchies. That also has to stop this month.

Drinking… Honey and lime juice in warm water every morning! Good for detox!

Calling… Dad! Miss him, you know!

Texting… none! :/

Hoping (to)… take a vacation! It’s been some time.

Pinning… Salad recipes!

Tweeting… the blog posts and interesting articles that I read.

Going… to the beaches? Well, maybe 🙂

Loving… pampering the furball! You know how happy I am now, after the arrival of my baby Golden. He simply brings so much happiness in our lives every day with his quirkiness and love.


Hating… the summer heat! I’m glad that I’m perched in the mountains and there isn’t much heat that I need to tolerate. Nevertheless, I miss winter!

Discovering… that I have 50+ books on my bookshelf waiting to be read! Phew!


Thinking… about the vacation I mentioned before. Oh, how badly I need one!

Feeling… uninspired! Though there are a lot of things in my head and on my to-do list, I’m just feeling Meh! But as I said, it’s a brand new month.

Listening (to)… Happier by Ed Sheeran

Celebrating… the unfinished project – #IntheMoment2018. Every day, I shall be sharing in my Insta Stories, the one thing that made me smile, happy, and grateful.

Smelling… Sandalwood! The Biotique Bio Basil and Sandalwood Body Powder 😛

Ordering… A Prime lens for the camera! I can’t wait for it to arrive!

Considering… what I am doing with my blogs!

Starting… Daily walks, that too with Muffy. His excitement makes me put on the walking shoes even if I feel tired.

Finishing… the vegetable garden harvest! You’ll not believe the size of the garlic that I just gathered in! Will share the pics once they are sun-dried for a couple of days!

Thankful for… my dear blogger friends for reaching out to me asking why I wasn’t finishing the A to Z Challenge. You know who you are! And you know how much it meant to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

… summer fruits! Watermelon, mango, papaya, litchi, pineapple, guava, muskmelon! Oh so yummy!

… the hail storms that occur very other day! Muffy also waits for the rain, you know.

… the never-ending TBR! I will be sharing a few of them in the coming days. Wait for it! 🙂

That’s all for now, folks!
Let me know what YOU are up to currently? Have a fantastic May, fellas.
