Very Healthy and Almost oil free Coconut and Banana Bread….a quick update

So far, we all are happy as our choice of color is looking good on the walls.  Our room, which was given first, is almost done now and right now we are enjoying the brightness and a sense of spaciousness (provided by the bright color paint) in our room.

For the kitchen, I have bought a few more shelves and now I am waiting for some carpenter to come and fix the shelves.    This coming weekend, we are planning to  go out and shop for new curtains.IMG_1836This week we had  one more reason to be happy as Inder’s transfer has been done to his choice of school, which also happens to be a morning and single shift school.  Now, his commuting time too will be saved as it is very close to our house. 

A few images taken over at my sister’s house, where we visited last weekend.   And this was the loaf I carried with me to her house.
