Catching up

Summer is here
Its not even April… but the hot, humid, sweaty, sticky Chennai summer is here….
Lots of things happened from september to summer
Little Ms.J has grown up a lot… now stands up holding on to anything and everything, how i wish she would slow down…
Ms.H has only a few days of school before her vacation starts…
I finally visited the famed cotton street of Chennai, while i didnt click any picture you can read about it here and here.

Last saturday is Ugadi, the telugu new year…. with Ms.H already having a new skirt and top (will blog as soon as i take some pictures) I decided on thursday night that Ms.J also should have a new dress made by momma….I made it, she wore it and quite a bit of her lunch somehow ended up on her dress. Its washed but it has to be pressed before any pictures are to be taken.
Here is a picture of the sisters on Ugadi… Ms.H is practising for her dance recital and not interested in the photoshoot, Ms. J will sit still only if she is chewing on a paper.

Between all this, i said to Ms.H that i will make some donuts for her, after school on monday(i don’t know how i even said those words…)
Everything went against me and my donuts. Ms.J woke up on the wrong side of bed and refused to do her day nap…. As i was holding her and trying to do everything single-handedly i forgot to reduce the milk when i halved this recipe (ended adding almost a cup of flour to make it workable). Just before i dropped that first donut in the oil… Ms.J again wanted to be held and only by me. So Mr.A did the frying, with me holding the baby and passing on the instructions, while Ms.H is nagging me when she can decorate and eat the donut.
the only saving grace is… the donuts turned out decent (not as crisp on the outside,,, but yummy on the inside). I might try them again but not before fixing a muhurtham…. i want all the donut stars on my side on that day.
Here is the one that Ms. H decorated…
The rest are just dusted with powdered sugar and were polished off within minutes…

      I seem to have given a wrong impression, my in-laws live with us and support me a lot with the kids. Its just one of those days when Ms. J decided she only wants mama and my MIL is not home to help in kitchen and Ms H will be home soon with lots of donut expectations 🙂
