Weekend Plans:

This week is warmest of this season. Though it is windy, but I don’t mind as long as the sun is there to provide the needed warmth. Like this week itself, this weekend prediction says that it’s gonna be warm — like real spring and that is enough reason to get me thrilled.

Sun and Fun:

As you can clearly see that I am so exhilarated for this warmth and I just don’t want to miss out on anything. Thus, I am writing this post in an open playground while little ‘A’ is playing nearby. Win-win for both of us. Isn’t it? 🙂

Since the weather over the weekend looks good, we plan to have a little picnic on the beach. But with the weather here, we never know. However, I am keeping my fingers crossed. Nevertheless, it’s my plan but I am not sure what my other two partners are thinking about the weekend. I sincerely hope that they will love this idea. No harm in assuming good things. Right? 🙂

Little ‘A’ would definitely love this plan, because she is so fond of beaches and picnics. So much so that a couple of times she even wanted to sell me an idea to have a picnic on the frozen lake. I would have considered it, but an outdoor picnic at MINUS 15 degrees Celcius…OUCCHHH! 😉 These little ones are really hilarious sometimes.

THIS CURRY IS MADE WITH PANCAKES. HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT ANYTHING LIKE THIS? I have asked many of my Indian and international friends, and none have heard about this curry.
