Best things come unexpectedly

Somebody rightly said it “The Best things in life are unexpected, because there are no expectations."
I know, even the worst things in life come unexpected, but better to talk about the best than the worst.

I had this 'Eureka' moment when I was cooking dinner today (pasta) :)
From 2 days I have been struggling with what's my next post going to be about. Writing, re-writing, deleting and ultimately concluding that there's no point sitting in front of my laptop and re-reading the same half written draft over and over again. The solution obviously was getting away from this damn laptop. But there's a reason why I was stressing myself out in writing something, because weekends are the days I get to update and read blogs. I can't do it on the week days, its just not possible after work.
So unexpectedly while cooking I got an idea of why not a post about Best things that come unexpectedly, like this post! Have you guys experienced when certain things just happen in that nick of time when either you have lost hope or you least expect it. Well in my case its always delayed but again, better late than never.

7 unexpected moments I can remember of right now
  • Cutting a family pack ice cream on my birthday on not finding a cake
  • Coming to Dubai
  • Meeting Raghu (my husband)
  • My sister happened to see my blog without me telling her and loved it (she is my biggest critic)
  • Winning random contests after trying several other innumerable times
  • A different kind of interview, shhhhh!! (details later)
  • And this post!

Did you just say 'Miss Versatile'?

 My first award here! Remember in my last post I mentioned I like participating in random contests and winning. But this was even without participating. WOW! I was given this by  Sangry Words. Thanks Sangeeta, I m really touched! :)

 Well the Versatile Blogger award rules are simple.
- Add a picture of the award in your post.
- Share seven things about yourself.
- Thank the award giver & link it back to him/her.
- Select 15 other bloggers that you want to share the” The Versatile Blogger” award to.

Seven things about me!
1) I totally hate being late, I prefer being 15 mins early but not late.
2) I think a lot. It has reduced considerably, but I think (again!) I must have belonged to the Pluto or Socrates family in my past birth
3) I often forget what I am talking about in the middle of conversation
4) I hate sleeping during the day unless somebody puts a gun to my head, I feel its waste of time
5) I learnt playing Tabla for around a year when I was in 2nd std, but was not really interested in it.
6) I love eating fresh peas, raw & uncooked. Infact many other vegetables too
7) I always give benefit of doubt, better than presuming things

Blogosphere is full of talented and passionate bloggers. Coming across a new one everyday is not rare. But these are just a few I have discovered so far and are on my favourites list. I share my award with them  :)

My 'WIN'some Weekend

I have been missing from my SqueakyCorner from quite sometime. Reason being the new job but I am not complaining at all because its been good so far. Some random clicks from my last weekend lunch which I won in our office's internal staff photo competition, in the first week of my joining itself! WIN is a WIN, small or big! Right! ;)
And by the way i enjoy participating in those random contests! Its like my favorite pastime.

The weather was perfect

Butternut Squash soup

Seafood! Raghu's favorite

A buffet dessert, so you eat to your heart's content..
