Was given the letter"S" by SANJAY to write 10 things that I love . I was happy with the letter given because a lot of things that I hold dear to my heart begin with the letter "S".


Sunny skies always make you feel warm you extra energy and somehow makes you refreshed. I think life would not be the same if we had no sunny skies. Gloom makes you feel sad.Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy.
Starry favorite.hence the name starry nights.To just look up at night and see the stars and to look at the expanse of the limitless sky and know that I am just a speck in this universe.

Have always been intrigued with space even though I am not very good in science. I love reading and watching shows about space, would love to go up into space if the opportunity arises.Sometimes I find it hard to understand but I think our whole solar system is awesome.

This tag would not be complete if I did not include shopping.I know most women love shopping , sometimes even if it is window shopping. It has been a long time since I have been shopping but am looking forward to doing that.

I think the sari is a beautiful garment, it can be worn by all women and it is very graceful.To just go to a sari shop and look at all the wonderful material, the color combinations and the array of designs is awesome.

I consider myself a spiritual person rather than a religious one. To me spiritual means to learn to focus on making myself better .On what I can do to live a more meaningful life and to take responsibility for my feelings, experiences and actions.

Sunset is defined as the time when the sun disappears below the Horizon.Sunset is also associated with summer, because most people are outdoors and can see the sun setting.
The sunset is often more brightly colored than the sunrise, with the shades of red and orange being more vibrant.Sunrise is defined as a time when the sun begins to appear.Sunrise is what awakens us each morning and gives us that energy to get out of bed.I think the different colors that we see in the sky at sunrise and sunset is what makes them so special.

For someone who is afraid to swim, I really like the sea shore. To take a nice brisk walk in the morning along the seashore.I remember collecting sea shells and pebbles,and different colored stones. I can sit for hours and just watch the waves .

I have been blessed to have really nice sisters.They have been a tower of strength to me during my illness. I think God put sisters on this earth for a very special reason. I thank God everyday for giving me sisters.

I love gardening.Have not been able to do any gardening of late but hopefully I will be able to plant something by the summer.It is just awesome to plant a seed and watch the plant grow.I planted a curry leaf seed in a pot and was really excited to see it grow into a plant.It is amazing to see all the different kinds of edible seeds there are.

I think I would be very sad if I did not have sight. Just to be able to see and admire God's creation. to see all the different animals and birds and to see the different seasons.And most of all to see the person I love and my children.I think sight would be a very hard thing to lose.

I know everyone is thinking" why would anyone like sickness" I really don't like sickness but I think my illness has made me a better person. I am more tolerant and patient, have learned what it feels like to be in pain, so be able to be more sympathetic to others when they are sick. and at the same time appreciate my family.I think it has brought "J"and me a lot closer. I had a chance to spend quality time with my children, something I could not do before because I was too busy with other things. I have learned to appreciate good health and to look after myself and not take things for granted.To make the best of my life and to just take one day at a time.


I love Indian sweets and I think it is my weakness.DOn't eat too much of it these days because I dont get a lot of exercise so cannot work it off. I think it is the best .


I had to mention superbowl because it is right around the corner and Iknow J is all excited about it.I know I am too. I know just enough to follow the game and I think the excitement is in everyone getting together, the cheering and the good food .It is fun especially when you have a favorite team in the finals and that happens to be the Chicago Bears.(used to live in Chicago)so it makes it even more fun.

Any one out there wanting to do this exciting tag,let me know and I will give you a letter.



Hey Starry..I too love shopping n sarees! I dont have a collection thought but think saree is something really beautiful!! :)

You have a atta attitude gitl! Regards sickness, wht an outlook, really impressive! :)

Id it is 4:26 PM  

'Spring' and 'Sushi' are two favorite 'S's with me; the former for it's colorful splendour and promise of hope and the latter for the zest it savours.

Shionge 4:57 PM  

And S is for Shionge of So Shiok too :D

And S is for Ms. Starry too :D

Luv Ya!

Keshi 5:43 PM  

Saree is my fav dress...I just love love love love it :)


Fuzzylogic 5:49 PM  

This post somehow made me feel very warm.Maybe because it had all the elements that I love.You really did a great job with this tag.I agree with all the things though gardening is perhaps not my cup of tea,I just don't have that green thumb:( and yes I don't have sisters perhaps that's one thing I always wished,I think sisters indeed have that special bond.And I'm a sucker for sweets too!I loved this post.

Go Bears! (It's hard for me to say it as I am a Packers fan). ;-)

Love Indian sweets too, actually anything sweet.. I will eat but I manage to control the portions.

Lotus Reads 5:08 AM  

Love your responses, Starry! I, too, can't resist a good sunset or a beautiful starry night (what a pity we don't see too many of them in the city), but when we lived in Dubai we'd go out and camp in the desert and the night skies were just glorious! I love how you mentioned sight and sisters, also two things very important to me.

You did really well on the tag - loved reading it!

Asha 6:42 AM  

Great list of S and tag well done!I got tagged again for something else!Ah...!!!!:)

Starry: All "S" were just awesome and love sarees.

Orchid 7:57 AM  

Very nice job with the tag...i really like the way you put a positive spin on the sickness part. Maybe, something s do happen for a reason after all even if it difficult to notice that when it is happening and ofcourse..once you face an adversity you are always stronger at the end of it.

Kai C. 10:00 AM
