Well, DN is almost completely healed. I am working on recovering from being sick as well. Proximity.
He’s been taking good care of me though. There were times when I couldn’t even talk, or all I could think about was sleeping. This morning he cooked parathas and sabji. It was delicious – like the poha he made for me the night before. I had never had poha until then. Poha is rice, but it’s flattened. It’s rich in flavor, and very fluffy. It’s a great breakfast dish, but we had it for dinner instead. I love breakfast for dinner. 😀
I’ve been doing some cooking as well, but I’ve learned that cooking American food is going to be a bit tricky. My stove, even at the lowest temperature, is way too hot. Which is perfect when cooking anything else, ironically.
I’ve been helping DN in the kitchen to learn his “kitchen magic“, as I call it. I’m watching him as he makes the roti perfectly round. It’s sorcery, I tell you. He is also teaching me how to make roti, parathas… Sabji is pretty easy for me to understand, and I can already make a few dishes. I love learning which spices he uses, and how he likes his food to taste.
When we’re not cooking, we are exploring the markets, working, going on walks, or otherwise just talking. We’re back to being inseparable. ♥
Everything is well decorated, because people are celebrating Navratri. — Click here to read about Navratri.
When I was walking through the marketplace, tinsel was strung about, flowers everywhere. Idols of Maa Durga were being worshiped, and local temples were ringing their bells. You can hear people blasting songs of worship all day. I love the warmth of the holidays. ♥ I’ll post pictures soon.
In other news, my apartment is nice. It’s perfect for me. Before I got sick, I was spending my free time doing some deep cleaning. You wouldn’t believe the dust in here, at first.
Anyway, that means I have acquainted myself with Indian housekeeping. I’ll post more about that in the next post, and I’ll be posting pictures of my home soon.
Until then, here are a few pictures of our daily lives together… ♥
This is what my bedroom looks like. It’s only empty because I was doing some heavy duty cleaning.
Here’s my living room. It’s also only empty because I was cleaning.
Some yummy dinner DN made. :v
DN and I were enjoying some coffee together. It’s my mom’s favorite brand, and I brought it from home. I also got him addicted to these cranberry almond cookies.
