Weathering Heights

With the scorching sun above and the baked earth below a girl searches for grass to feed her goat.

Getting online is like trying scale Mt Everest without an oxygen tank.The duration of power cuts has increased. Voltage also fluctuates so much that the broadband snaps frequently.

We are having a nice hot visit with Sonia and Abner. Yesterday we went to a children 's park and Abner had fun in the playground. On the way back we had burgers at MacDonald 's and brought takeaways for Mama and Aunt Sybil.

I want to create links on my blog and add a list of blog friends I visit ,but I don 't know how. All the other bloggers do it so cleverly, you just click on the name etc. and their blog or link comes on.Can someone please tell me step by step how to do it. I am a computer challenged person friends.I also want to know how to cut and paste codes.In the blog world I feel like a fish on dry ground.

Mama was having severe dizzy spells due to the heat after prayer and Vertin 24 she is better today.I suffered from sinus vertigo last week, but now I"m OK.

Sonia 's visit is going to make us fat! She is cooking all her favourite food and snacks and we will end up with extra cellulite.

This is a banana flower and I am going to cook it tomorrow.
You peel the outer layers and cook the stamens.
We are also cooling off with bel fruit juice. Bel (Bale) fruit is a native of India, it resembles a wood apple(I don 't know what that is) Its a normal ball size, sweet and has lots of seeds.It cools you off and its a blood purifier, good for the tummy.
Here is the bel fruit
Update: I read that bel is also known as wood apple.

4 Fertilize my soul:

Oh Amrita, I wish I could help you your blog, but I am challenged as well with that sort of thing. I had a friend set up my blog - you can link to her from mine in two ways...her name is Carol-Ann, ahe might be able to instruct you in the way you should go!
Your heat sounds tremendous and terrible at the same time - and that fruit looks beautiful..... I hope that you manage to cool off with it's help, and enjoy the rest of the visit with your family, too much food or not!
