Just Checking In

Hello All!

Just checking in briefly from India. I think, for the time being, I am going to put the Rosie's Riveters posts on hold. This is mainly because I feel a great deal of guilt that Zibilee's was posted so haphazardly, with hardly any links or graphics. So I want to redo hers before posting any others! However, Sassy Brit and my friend Beth G are up next (just so you two are aware). And I have my friend Sudha's ready to post, but I just don't think I will be doing so soon. I hope to post a book review soon (I've got about 70 pages left in Dave Eggers' What is the What, suggested reading from Beth G mentioned above). Though it will also be a low-tech version. I promise to get high-tech when I get home! And Beth Rooney of Belly of the Beest fame has a cookbook review coming some time soon. So lots to come!

India has been very hectic. I was in Amritsar and Delhi briefly last week, and both cities were ridiculously hot. RIDICULOUSLY so. And then I went to my cousin's wedding in Tamil Nadu, in the far south, and that was ALSO a ridiculously hot place. If you don't know what it's like to wear a heavy silk sari in 100+ degree temperatures with no air conditioning... well, it's not fun! So, thankfully, now I'm in Bangalore, where the temperature is perfect. Nice, as apparently it's gotten very cold again in Chicago! I haven't gotten much reading in yet, but I hope to get back on track in the evenings now.

That's all for now- hope all is well with everyone! And a particular note to Nymeth- yes, I have you already in the Rosie's Riveters line-up, don't worry!


  1. I would sure have perished since I am used to a cold country.
    But have fun now

  2. I am glad things are a bit cooler for you now, and hope that you enjoy the rest of your trip. Also, no worries about the Riveter's post, it was good just to be included. Hope to see you back soon!

  3. Have fun in India, hope you get to see my parents and aren't totally exhausted by the weather!


  4. So sorry you had to wear a sari in that hot weather. I don't think I would have stood it. I'm glad that your cooling off now.

    Enjoy the rest of your trip!

  5. Oh crap, I just saw this. I better work on my post...
