New year, New features …..

Sharing is caring!


I love new beginnings.. and new years are no exceptions. I make plans to redecorate, think of a new theme for my home, Losing weight always figures somewhere.. but I rarely get to it. 2012 is def going to be the one where I take a stock of my health. Get into better shape and increase my stamina. It has been a good year so far.. Lots of trips , some new features, a new home and a new camera!!! Its funny because after 12 years me n my hubby have found a common passion.. Photography. We squabble like kids on who gets to take the shot. In 2011, I also made plans to complete 3 certifications .. Completed two. The PMP one has got postponed to end of Jan. I have been ignoring it the past 2 months but I will get back to it seriously in 2012. I am also working on a new project at office. I’m very very excited about it. I’m learning new technologies and the adrenalin rush of a short cycle agile methodology has got me all pumped up. I’ve always fared very well at challenging stuff and this is the first time that our QE [ Quality Engineering] team is working on Jruby, Groovy  and Cucumber… In short, I might be blogging much lesser in 2012. But I have some exciting plans for Mindful Meanderings ..

1. I want to change the the Artsy-Craftsy mascot .. make her more Indian..Do you want to give that a try?
2. I want a regular feature on Yummy-Tummy Wednesday.. Calling all food lovers, if you would like to be a part of Mindful Meanderings team, drop me a mail. One kiddie recipe of yours will be featured every Wednesday.
3. I also want a regular feature on Children books.. maybe every Friday. It could be a post on your kids favorite book and reviews . You could also post information about book shops and fairs, or compile your age wise lists.. Again, I want it limited to children books ages – 0 – 16. Any interested parties who want to be a part of Mindful Meanderings team?

What are your plans for the new year?
