Turkish Delight

Turkish delight , also called Lokum, is a popular middle eastern sweet dessert. It’s made of sugar , cornstarch and flavorings.

But what kind of magic feeling is there when you taste Turkish delight? Curious and
excited I opened the box. I see powder sugar coated cubes neatly packed inside. Although
the packaging says four diferent flavors and colors, I can’t make out the color of each. I
have to try one to know. I picked one out. It feels more dense than a marshmallow and
quite similar to gummy bear.The powder sugar dusting keeps them from sticking together. I popped one  red cube right in my mouth and slowly savored the taste and feel of my first turkish delight. It is sweet and sticky with a chewy jelly consistency. I noted the heavenly rose flavor right away. The green one is mint flavored and the yellow one is lemon. Maybe the next piece I will find pistachio and almond nuts.

The box is on the dining table to tease and tempt me away from my diet. I wonder if I am going to have tummy ache or tooth ache for eating too much? My tip for eating turkish delight is to eat slowly and in moderation. One is never enough for your sweet tooth.

My little warrior dog

My little warrior dog

Your untiring playfulness

Interrupted

By untimely silence

Has come.

Your little wagging tail

Bright attentive eyes

Fluffy golden coat

Soft ticklish paws

Cold wet nose

Is forever a masterpiece

Of K9 life and happiness.

You are brave when you came

Be a lot braver when you leave

Give me a last pawshake before you go

Blast me with your last smile

Let me know you enjoyed your life

I could have given you more

I could have hugged you more

Had I known time will be brief

To be with you

My little warrior dog.

A Day with The Jonssons

One day on the gamezone..

“Arrrgh! I did it again. I’m playing so bad with this team. They shoot when they shouldn’t be shooting.”

“Which team are you with? ”

“Oh for heaven’s sake! No wonder I’m playing so bad. I’m playing against the computer.”

This thing about computers and passwords is annoying me!  Why do they always prompt for updates, upgrades and all these techy prompts?

It’s to secure your account from unauthorized use and hackers.

From whom?  Who would want to bother with an old woman’s cooking recipe anyways?  It’s not a secret like Tutankhamen’s mummy recipe.

Even that is not a secret nowadays.

Grandma Glasses : “But I don’t want an upgrade.”

I.T. Consultant : “ Enjoy the 1TB backup space. I’m paying the monthly fee.” (sigh)

WordPressed

photos from home 018B 003

I was working two hours on my new blog. I am almost done with content, layout and links when I noticed the edit button on my page. I worked around toolbars and still cannot get the edit button off my main blog page.
“Honey? How do I remove the edit button?” I asked my techy savvy husband. Being the math wizard in the family, I knew he can fix it for me. My husband came to check what I was doing. “That’s easy. Here let me help you.”
And after a few clicks on my keyboard he said casually, “I can even change the whole page,” my husband added.

With wide eyes, I gawked at the most complicated muddle of alphanumerics strings I have seen in my entire life. “What the .. ?!” Talk about wordpressed! Oh well, that’s why they put CLICK Support button on the dashboard.

Cupid’s On the Line

Today I whispered to Cupid,

“You are mistaken

That I am loveless,

It’s not flowers or chocolates

nor fancy dates and gifts

it’s what we feel in our hearts

that keeps us in love

to share together

all the days

before and after

Valentines Day”

Cupid smiled, and answered

“I am right to hit you both

With my golden arrow

At the most unexpected

And most unbelievable moment

And I am happy

For my task with you is done”
