August 2020 monthly wrap up: Sunday Musings #91

August 2020 monthly wrap up: Sunday Musings #91

I am finally happy to announce that the temperature is receding and I have a hope that the short fall and the eventual winter might be nearer. On other news, the last week staycation was great and I hadn't realized how much I needed that. Of course I was (almost "over...

Staycation, here I come!: Sunday Musings #90

Staycation, here I come!: Sunday Musings #90

When you are reading this post, I would be enjoying my coffee and the two day staycation at Cove Rotana, Ras Al Khaimah. I know it is still scary to be out in the world with the numbers again slowly rising in the UAE but I think it is a well deserved rest. When I say...

One about Ganesh Chaturthi: Sunday Musings #89

One about Ganesh Chaturthi: Sunday Musings #89

After a long boring week where almost nothing happened, yesterday we celebrated Ganesh Chaturthi, which marks the birth of Vinayak or Ganesh - the elephant faced God in Hinduism. He is our God of new beginnings and thus one of our favorites. Typically we create the...

Using the gym during the times of Corona: Sunday Musings #88

Using the gym during the times of Corona: Sunday Musings #88

The One Where I Learn About UV Index: Sunday Musings #87

July 2020 – Updates: Sunday Musings #86

In Dubai, we are in peak summer and the temperature is always above the 105 F (43C) and the humidity is 90%. Yes it is the humidity that is killing us! We even had a few mild dust storms during the week. On the other news, we are having a 4-day long weekend for Eid...

Week that whizzed past: Sunday Musings #84

This has been one of those weeks. I can't think of one solid thing that happened and yet seven days have whizzed past. We are still following the post CoVID routines, even though there are no more restrictions over here. Better safe than sorry right? We are not going...

Pinterest and traffic statistics: Sunday Musings #83

Pinterest and traffic statistics: Sunday Musings #83

Last week was fairly normal and one thing that kinda threw a curveball at me was Pinterest. I love Pinterest, personally and for the blogging promotion. But the new algorithm has changed quite a bit and my numbers have fallen drastically in the past few days....

June 2020 – An update: Sunday Musings #82

June 2020 – An update: Sunday Musings #82

Usually I am a quick learner, but I spent quite a large part of the last two weeks of June 2020 trying to figure out the free opt-in email subscription on MailChimp and failed spectacularly. It is not much about being unable to get it working, as much as it is about...
