The most beautiful Pongal paanai I've ever seen! Looks like you made your pongal in the middle of a garden Brinda Smile

I'm looking forward to all of our members' Pongal kolams Rajamma ma'am (yourself included)!

As for me, I'll have to settle for an "avasara" kolam and hurry to finish making the pongal, do puja and get it all done within 7.30am, in time to send my kids off to school! There are no Pongal holidays where I live (obviously), and no signs of Pongal to be seen anywhere the minute we step out of our house. Actually, this is how we celebrated Diwali too. Sometimes, I'm so torn between moving to India for good vs staying stuck here feeling sorry for myself Smile

It feels good to vent a little. Now, I can go back to my Bhogi cleanup jobs peacefully...where do I begin? Now where did I save her number? Oh yes, got it! "Hola, senora Cortez! Podria venir a mi casa para limpieza? Muchas gracias, bye".

Lata ,Hola, senora Cortez! Podria venir a mi casa para limpieza? Muchas gracias, bye".

That was funny Lakshmi! Senora cortez means Mrs.Cortez, I was asking Mrs. Cortez to come over to my house to clean up (in Spanish). Mrs.Cortez is the lady who does my monthly house-clean up. And I wasn't kidding, I really did make the call in the middle of writing that comment, and Mrs. Cortez and her son Cody are in my house vacumming my rooms right now as I write this comment .
"Muchas gracias' - Thank you so much Mrs.Cortez!

Lata, give me some time to create a theme in house keeping/cleaning up!!!!give me some more themes to create.

Lata's picture

Seriously! You mean you want to make kolams with cleaning tools like broomsticks and mops! That would be quite amusing Smile

I've some themes in mind that I haven't seen yet, and I'll write up about it soon.
