Through the journey

Twisted branches block the way
I know not to untangle
This or that, its quite a daze
I feel yet, Your loving gaze

Fall Decor DIY - Leaf illuminare

 As the mercury dips and the air becomes crisp,  a little warmth will add cheer. Nature is so excellent in providing that warmth and I brought in few of those, beautiful crimson leaves. Reusing a bottle and using those gifts of nature, I said thanks for brightening my day.

The Pumpkin Prayer

Halloween is around the corner and people are excited about making jack-o-lanterns with pumpkins. It is believed that the custom of making jack-o-lanterns first started in Ireland. But they had used huge turnips and when this custom travelled overseas to the United States, pumpkins replaced turnips. May be because of the size! We don't see huge turnips in the US.

Mornings are cold and days are getting shorter, and soon there will be frost. Pumpkins have to be harvested before that. So harvest of pumpkins happens right in time for Halloween. Pumpkin patches, photobooths, pumpkin carving, pumpkin cider, pumpkin pie, pumpkin this and pumpkin that - pumpkins are everywhere. The orange pumpkins along with the red and yellow leaves do brighten up the gloomy fall season.

What is the boundary for setting limits to kids?

As parents we all face these questions at some point in our lives. Should I let my child know this? Should I expose my kid to this? How much of information can I share with my kid? I've been there and am there and am sure, I will be there. These are not questions which arise only once. And also these are  not questions which can be answered specifically to the point. These are more generic and also divergent.
