The Winter Wonderland Challenge: Tag

I've signed up for Yasmine's Winter Wonderland Challenge and the first task is up for us to do. But before I dive into the tag, I'd better tell you guys the rules.

The rules:
  1. Answer the questions.
  2. Link back to this post. :)
  3. Nominate one more blogger (but make sure they don't tag anyone else because that way the tag will go on and on and on until the end of the competition, which I can't have.)
  4. Have fun! ♥
Q) What is your favorite winter drink? How do you make it? Why is it your favorite?
A) Well, I drink tea throughout the year- but coffee is the only new winter drink I take. Usually we go out and have coffee but sometimes I stir some up in the kitchen. I used to make really bad coffee but one day Lalie came to my place and made coffee which was really well received by my mom so I watched what she did closely and resolved to copy her style. Basically, what you do is put milk and water (in separate pots) to boil. Meanwhile, you put in the tablespoon of coffee and sugar in your cup and put in one tablespoon of the hot water that you'd put to boil and stir the mixture until its frothy. Then you just pour in 3/4th of the cup's volume of milk and fill the rest up with water. Now that's what you do with the coffee grain thingies but we bought instant coffee last year (and the box survives to today) and what I do there is just put the powder in the cup and boiled the water and milk together and poured it in. I didn't drink this concoction- my brother did and he had no complaints.

Q) What is your favorite winter month?
A) Definitely January- since it means a brand new year!

Q) Do you get snow where you live? How much?
A) No snow- not at all. It hailed once though and it was soo much that it blocked the drain in our terrace and all the rain pooled up there and started entering the bedroom from under the door. Can you imagine your room being flooded with ice cold water? In winter too!

Q) What is your favorite winter activity?
A) Sleeping in front of the heater.

Q) What's the worst thing about winter?
A) Making wudhu with hot water and then stepping out in the cold and losing that hot water feeling rapidly.

Q) Favorite winter associated symbol?
A) Frozen xD I love the part where Elsa sings Let it Go and build her mega palace.

Q) Tag one blogger to support you while you do the challenge/ do the challenge with you.
A) I must spam Maine Lyn again xD I tag you to do this challenge!

Well, that's all for today! Hopefully my college starts next week on Monday- I'll be shifting blogs on the weekend ^^.

Home is Where the Heart Is

It's 11:31 pm and I'm huddled in bed, having coaxed my seven year old brother into being a part of my entry for Envy's contest and in return of being called a teddy bear and all the little pet names I could use to get him to work with me, he has decided to cuddle up with me as I write. (Stop breathing on my arm, it tickles. Also, don't shove your head too close.)

"Home is where the heart is"

Sounds simple and rings with truth. But if I was to explain this saying to you and talk about what it meant to me, I would b dragging in a third concept. Family.

I'll admit- I've never been away from my family for long. Also, we've made so many life changing decisions and gone through so much as a team, it's hard to imagine a house becoming a home without them.

So I've managed to connect home with family, but what about heart? The concept of heart, or dil in Urdu is a vast concept. You can talk of your desires with the phrase "mera dil chahra hai" or vice versa "mera dil nahi chahra" which in rough translation means "my heart wants this" and "my heart does not want this".

Isn't that nice? You instantly join your heart into everything you want to do and if you don't want to do something, it's taken that your heart doesn't want this to happen. Best part? Everyone understands. The heart is taken very seriously.

So what am I trying to say?

If you were to ask me, "Do you want to be with your family and in your home?" I would say yes- my heart desires so (mera dil chahta hai). Indeed. Home is where the heart is.

(Ugh, iPhone front camera sucks)

The Grateful Blogger Tag

I was tagged for this post by India, who blogs at The Tudda Pudda Diaries (I liked calling it TTP Diaries). The rules for this tag are pretty simple, but I'll go through them again since this is my first time with such a tag!

#1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
#2. List some major things you are grateful for.
#3. Tag ten bloggers.

This post is supposed to be a bit of a deep and thoughtful sort of post but I'm afraid I can't actually delve into the mysteries of what I'm going to write and explain them in more details, but to sum it all up, I'm grateful for-

My parents, my family, both close and extended, and my surroundings and environment.
My friends, both online and off (yes, you too, blogger buddies) for being there for me and letting me be there for you too.
My functional mind and body.
Having so many ways to be productive and try doing something new.
Being able to forgive and forget relatively easily.
Being okay with my flaws and not usually obsessing over them too much.

I tag the following to do this post (and also suggest you to check out the original post by India)
Picking up the pieces
Almost Completely Mad
A Little Yarn Blossom
Lynde Avenue
Good Morning, Morning!
Sunset and Sundays
Maine Lyn
Daily Diaries
Reflections of a Jollygirl
Cranberries and Crescents

Okay, I'm going to finish off this post with some apologies and stuff.

(/)*-*)/) I'm sorry for not posting so much and also, not commenting on your blogs. But rest assured, I DO read and go through posts- either through the bloglovin' app or through twitter links you guys share but unfortunately, commenting is a hassle on a mobile phone and getting a laptop out is even more so. I'm going to try leaving feedback through twitter at least- otherwise, if I liked your post, I LIKE/SAVEd it on bloglovin!

(/)*-*)/) Also, I don't think I'm bored of blogging. I think I just find it a little difficult to sit down and write it all down. Did you know this post was in my drafts folder for a week? I sat down and decided to finish it just now. Did you also know I have a whole list of posts I can write about but haven't started on yet? Oh, and did I mention contest entries and other cool stuff THAT I CAN'T SEEM TO START WRITING ABOUT.

(/)*-*)/) My term has been delayed a week thanks to Imran Khan- that means one more week of staying at home! I've decided that I've had enough and now I'm thinking about finishing animes and stuff before college starts. Still thinking...

(/)*-*)/) You wanna know what else I'm thinking about? Water colors.

That's all for this week probably. I'm honestly going to try writing out something better for next time.
