Sunday Blessings - And Veggie Tales

Sonia called on Friday saying she was arriving on Sunday.So here she is with Abner and hubby. Hubby will leave after a day or two. So have we lots of company and the house feels full.Sonia (my adopted sister) will stay till the middle of June.
We 've had a number of dust storms this week and I 've had a hard time keeping the house dust free.It seemed every time I cleaned everything up a fresh storm would pour water ...er...dust over my hard work.

The above photo has been taken in Rajasthan.

Pumpkin Eater
I finally got to make my pumpkin stir fry yesterday. When I bought some pumpkin last month my fridge busted, so I put it in Aunt Virginia 's fridge., When I went to get it, I found that her maid had cooked it thinking it was her 's.
Last week I bought another pumpkin and this time my fridge thermostat was on high (a mistake I rectified) and my pumpkin froze.and you just can 't cook a defrosted pumpkin, I can tell you that by experience.
So I bought a fresh pumpkin and cooked it immediately without any mishap.Now I feel like singing the old nursery rhyme
Peter, Peter pumpkin eater
Had a wife but couldn 't keep her

Today while cooking Sunday lunch I listened to Dr Ravi Zacharias ' 'message entitled What Can the Righteous do When the Foundations Crumble? Oh, it is such a soul stirring speech.
Urgent Prayer Request
Please Pray for Daddy Jeyapaul. (Prem 's dad)He is admitted in Intensive care with jaundice and other complications.His condition is critical. Mother Jeyapaul passed away two weeks ago.

8 Fertilize my soul:

I love your anecdotes, Amrita. No matter how tough things seem to be, you put a humorous twist. This song is for you, http://sitahenderson.blogspot.com/2008/05/sandi-patty-his-eye-is-on-sparrow_18.html,

Wind nor dust nor frozen pumpkin can take away the glory and joy that our Heavenly Father provides! Keep on dusting and love will abound, keep on preparing pumpkin and all will glow and with folks such as yourself all will be fine! Your prayer request will be fulfilled and graciously answered.

In loving friendship,
PaPa

I am not sure how I missed that beautiful picture of the ladies in Rajasthan.....And I liked the pumpkin stir fry too. One of the veggies which tastes good, any which way. In Bengal, all we do, is cut it into small pieces, roll them on a besan batter and deep fry them. Yummy but I am careful about oil and so all I do is cut them small, season with kalonji and green chillie, add salt and turmeric and stir till fried. I like it a little burnt at the bottom just to get that special sharp taste of a slightly burnt veggie! Yammy again.
