  1. I love your list! Very inspiring to have goals.
    I love indian food. I see that you have “Cook 10 Garhwali dishes” on your list. If the dishes come out good, share the recipe.

    Your crocheting is beautiful and so are your children!

    Saw your post on Ravelry (RAK forum – March 2010).

    1. Thanks Janet!
      I have made some of the recipes and posted them on the blog. For your information, Garhwali dishes are the dishes which are cooked in the certain region of India; known as Garhwal.
