Maybe I’ll Be Lucky Next Lifetime

“Maybe I’ll Be Lucky Next Lifetime”

I wake up from

the same dream and desire

to own, run and cook in a

nice cozy restaurant where delicious food and drinks

are served adjacent to a room where all sorts of

handmade crafts are sold

~~~

but who knows

maybe I’ll be lucky next lifetime

~~~

doing those two things

crafting all kinds of beautiful things and

the aroma of good food cooking

for lovely people is what I love to do

at home in my cozy kitchen,

~~~

but who knows

maybe I’ll be lucky next lifetime

~Are You My Love?~ Kanhaiya & Daali: Jai Kanhaiya Lal Ki

And here we are in heaven

For you are mine…At Last

~AT LAST~

“Etta James”

~At Last~

~~~

Her secret admirer, her childhood love, the one she promised to wait for and he promised he would come… they are to meet today at the amusement park, he asked her to wear that beautiful peach colored dress he sent to her. She hears a voice singing

“Kya Hua Tera Vaada.”

(what happened to that promise….)

Daail has memories of their past as she hears his voice singing that song. It echo’s throughout the park as she searches to find him, she looks here and looks there, her beautiful peach dress swirls and swirls as she continues to search for him, her one and only. He looks here and looks there and finally at a distance, they see each other, time stops, she finally asks him….

“are you my love?”

You told me you was going to come, I waited for you….

~Are You My Love?~ Kanhaiya & Daali Hold Hands & Die: Jai Kanhaiya Lal Ki

~~~

Kanhaiya (Vishal Vashishtha) and Daali’s (Shweta Bhattacharya) real identities are revealed at last as she shows up to meet him, and she hears him singing in the background “Kya Hua Tera Vaada.” Daail remembers their past as his voice echo’s that song throughout the park. She searches and searches for him and they finally meet up.

Rocky (Harshad Arora) and Maya (Madhurima Basak) showed up (damn criminals) and shot them both on the last episode of JAI KANHAIYA LAL KI.

I have to admit that I absolutely enjoyed this show. All throughout it’s airing each episode leaves you feeling so many ranges of emotions. I felt so excited as it was very upbeat. It was so funny as I was always having a good laugh at their comical skits. It was loving as you could tell the warm warmhearted, beautiful love between the Daali and Kanhaiya towards the end and especially as they were living together in Kanhaiya’s home after they were married. Contractual marriage is what Daali liked to say and remind Kanhaiya about. It also had some sad, tender moments and then the scary, terrifying, tense and finally heartbreaking moment at the end of the show when Daali and Kanhaiya was murdered. I tell you that my heart was so broken and sad as Daali and Kanhaiya lie there on the ground in an amusement park holding hands, crying and finally saying they love each other with their last dying breath. I liked that they finally came together but I didn’t like how misfortune snuffed the life out of them before they came together. It was sad because it was too late for Daali but Kanhaiya knew all the time as he was with her and did get to spend some time for a good while before it was all over for them.

One of my favorites scenes was when Kanhaiya would call Daali on the phone and was able to express how much he really loved Daali to her. It was at those moments that I felt it was going to be a good ending between the two. I was so shocked to have seen that they were shot down and practically had to crawl to get close enough to hold each others hands at their last moments of life together. The ending was not what I expected. It was just too sad for me.

Anyway I am going to miss this show and I wish all the best to the cast as they move on to their next exciting adventure.

My love has come along

My lonely days are over

And life is like a song

Oh yeah yeah

At last

The skies above are blue

My heart was wrapped up in clover

The night I looked at you

I found a dream, that I could speak to

A dream that I can call my own

I found a thrill to press my cheek to

A thrill that I have never known

~~~

You smiled, you smiled

Oh and then the spell was cast

And here we are in heaven

For you are mine…

At Last

I purchased a bunch of artificial flowers from the dollar store and attached them by the stems to the pens to make them look so feminine and pretty. And I placed them in a mason jar. It makes the area on my table look so sunny and I smile every time I get to write with one of them.

OMG! I finished reading John Grisham’s newest book The Rooster Bar” and it was a very enjoyable read. I absolutely could not put this book down once I picked it up so I read it in one sitting, but I refuse to elaborate on what this book was all about because I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who decides to read it.

~~~

And so what I am planning to read next is a book titled “Little Fires Everywhere” by Celeste Ng and so if anyone cares to join me as I start to read this book, well that would be Great!

I Couldn’t Understand The Pain In Your Voice: Balika Vadu

~~~

You know what, Sumitra? I missed you a whole lot. I missed you every moment. [Bhairon]

I also missed you a lot. With whom do I share… my feelings except you? When I speak my heart out… I feel very light. But when you weren’t here… how I…[Sumitra]

I know Sumitra. It was the same with me. I was far away from you. And before I left. I had seen the tension between Shyam and our families. I was worried about mother and the children. I used to miss you every moment. And I never stayed so far from you for so many days. My morning starts with you. And my evening ends with you. I’m used to that. You can say, the number of days I stayed away from you… I spent all those days like a punishment. And when you needed me the most, I… I wasn’t with you. Will you forgive me for this? [Bhairon]

What?… what are you saying? [Sumitra]

No, Sumitra. Whatever you’ve gone through wasn’t so easy. Now, I realize… why you were sounding so sad every time. But wonder what was wrong with me that… I couldn’t understand that pain in your voice. I should have understood it. Wonder why it happened, Sumitra? [Bhairon]

You don’t blame yourself. Whatever happened here…. No one could ever imagine it. And…. You had gone there for important work. [Sumitra]

Sumitra, my responsibility… [Bhairon]

Forget everything. You came back on time. You managed everything. Everything is fine now. I’m happy. I don’t want anything else. [Sumitra]

Really? (She nods yes to him) [Bhairon]

How happy are you? [Bhairon]

What? [Sumitra]

Tell me. [Bhairon]

This much. (she holds her hands out) [Sumitra]

Only this much? [Bhairon]

Fine, this much. (she hold her arms out much wider) [Sumitra]

Happy? [Sumitra]

Happy. (they hug and hold each other closely and ever so tightly) [Bhairon]

EASY LUXURIOUS LUSH SOAPS

~~~~

Well my husband drove me to Michael’s craft store so I could get the ingredients to make some melt and pour soaps. So I have to say that the experience of making these soaps for yourself or as gifts is so easy and just pouring the melted soap into the molds feels so nice.

And so we made it back home and I got busy melting and pouring and moving around in the kitchen I couldn’t believe how easy it was and then how amazing the soap smelled while making them.

So I used some of the best amazing ingredients to make the soap exactly to fit my liking. After that experience I have decided that I am hooked and I will make melt and pour soaps forever. LOL!

As I look at the finished product in my bathrooms they remind me how my mother used to display cute little guest soaps in the bathrooms after they were cleaned up and they were placed on pretty porcelain dishes to decorate as they used to smell so fragrant and added to the plush and lushness of the bathrooms.

Also what I love about making the melt and pour is the many different types of soap bases such as goats milk, Shea butter, honey and oatmeal that are available to use. But this day I decided to make a lavender, honey, lemon and goats milk soaps. The molds just make the soaps look so luxurious and it feels so good on my hands when I wash with this soap and for when showering with these soaps feels so, so amazing.

~~~~

“How To Make Lavender Honey Lemon Melt And Pour Soap”

~~~~

My Own Simple Lavender Honey & Lemon Melt & Pour Soaps Recipe

I purchased the following ingredients at Michael’s craft store and some things from my kitchen and the essential oils I already had. 

2 pound container of goats milk soap base

1 packet of fragrant lavender buds

1 bottle of lavender essential oils

1 bottle of lemon essential oils

1 bottle of honey

1 bottle of lavender soap coloring

soap molds (I used a silicone cup cake mold)

1 glass Pyrex measuring cup or double boiler pot

1 pack of soap mold stirrers or a wooden spoon

wax paper

1 cookie sheet

1 plastic cutting block

1 spray bottle of alcohol

plastic packaging for soap bars

Directions On How To Make Soaps:

1. put a piece of wax paper over the cookie sheet and place the soap molds on the sheet to fit and set it aside.

2. cut into small blocks enough of the goats milk soap base to fill the Pyrex measuring cup and put it into the microwave to melt the soap. Be sure to melt 30 second intervals and each time remove the cup and stir the soap cubes till they are all melted. It may take at least 1 minute and 30 seconds total. If you use a double boiler on the stove top then you can melt the soaps by constantly stirring until the soap cubes are melted.

3. add the essential oils at least 20 drops of each and be sure to smell it to see if you want to add more or less.

4. add a tablespoon of honey and stir then add a few drops of colorant to your liking a few drops at a time and stir with stirrer.

5. lastly add in a handful of lavender buds and stir.

6. You can put it back in the microwave if it has started to thicken to melt once more for 30 seconds and then stir.

7. next pour the liquid into the molds.

8. spray a small amount of alcohol over the top of the soaps so that it will dissolve the bubbles.

9. put the tray with soap mold into the refrigerator for 30 minutes so that it sets and gets hard.

10. check to make sure the soap is solid and hard and then pop them out of the molds and they are ready for use or wrapping up in pretty paper or fabric for later use or you can give them as gifts.

*be sure that everything you use to make these soaps are kept aside and only used for making soaps again. Don’t use them for cooking food once you use them for soap making. I purchased a pretty storage box to put all of my soap supplies.*

I Love You Without Ever Having To Touch You…. ~ Vedika & Sahil~ Aap Ke Aa Jaane Se

~~~

~~~

Considering our age gap, I can’t even imagine why you like me.

I get it now……

Is this why you keep coming back to me?

Fine. Let’s end it once and for all, Sahil.

Go ahead and fulfill your desires. But after that, forget me. Here you go. [Vedika]

~~~

Vedika, what are you doing? ……

I love you. It’s true love and I have a lot of respect for you.

I would not force myself on you. And that will never change.

I have loved you since the time we met. At that coffee shop…. in the cinema hall. And you know my love for you only grew with every meeting it has only become deeper.

My love is not just physical attraction. I can go all my life without touching you and still love you and I feel blessed to have you in my life but you mistook my love for lust.

You have insulted my love for you.

You have always misunderstood my…

love for you. [Sahil]

On Prepping: Having Clean Water Without Filters Or Electricity

~~~

Hey Friends! We all know we can go longer without food then we can without clean drinking water, so that’s why I spend time always thinking of the various kinds of ways in which to be prepared. In regard to water, I try to think about the many ways in which to keep water and clean water in the most inexpensive way. Not only have I stocked up on water filters and purchased gallons of bottled water and purchased an electric water distiller as well, but I realized that I still need another way to have clean water once all the water filters are used up and all the bottled water is gone and in case there is no electricity to run my electric distiller.

So I found this little set up. It’s called a “2 Quarts Per Day Universal Water Purifier and Distiller” that I think is perfect and so easy to use with a fire source. I really like that it is not as expensive as other distillers. I paid about $40 bucks for it and I can now relax in this department somewhat knowing that when all else fails I have this for back up. And so of course I cannot just have one of these babies, we will have to buy a second one as well because you know the old saying in the prepping world “one is as if you have none.”

So see below a YouTube video which shows you how to use it.

~~~

Prime Water Filter”

~~~

Also check out this YouTube video and see how this prepper mom makes distilled water with what she already has in her kitchen. She uses a canning pot as she puts in a glass bowl in the pot and covers the pot with the lid turned upside down so the clean water can collect into the glass bowl. I tell you people are brilliant! I am so glad I saw this video because I have a similar canning pot as well and now I know I can distill water in this way too.

My Favorite “Love Story” Video Songs

I wanted to share some of my favorites of “love story” videos that are on YouTube. I label them too according to how I seem them.

~~~

Garry Sandhu | Banda Ban Ja | Official Video 2014

“Things Are Not Always As They Seem”…..

because here a man’s wife looses the faith in him and is suspicious of him and so misunderstanding takes root as she looses trust in her husband, but later finds out what the truth is.

~~~

KASH KOE | SARA GURPAL | New Punjabi Songs 2018 | Yellow Music

“Save The Little Children”…

because here a lady befriends a little girl and they form a beautiful close relationship and so one day the little girl goes missing and when the lady searches for her she finds her house and see’s a man sexually abusing the little girl and so she gets the little girl to safety. It’s such a heart breaking scene.

~~~

Zaroori Tha – Rahat Fateh Ali Khan (HD)

“My Soul Mate”

because first of all I love this beautiful song and the video as it shows how intense and stressed this relationship is between a movie actor and his girlfriend. But in the end they win.

~~~

Sara Gurpal – Ki Main Kamli Aa Whatsapp Story Video

Such a girly, dreamy and pretty video. Loved this one.

~~~

Laung Laachi Official Trailer | Ammy Virk, Neeru Bajwa, Amberdeep Singh | Releasing 9 March

All I can say about this one is I cannot wait until this beautiful movie comes out on DVD
