Back to T stands for ...

Hello dear Elizabeth and all at T stands for Tuesday. Gosh! it has been so long since I have been here. My mother-in-law passed away on the 28th of November. It was so sudden and unexpected. We flew back home, to India and are still here. I and the children are planning to stay here with my father-in-law till the mid of 2015.

I always believe that whatever hurdles life throw at us we have to face it and move according to the current situation. For this academic year I have sought admission for my kids here. They are coming to terms with their new school environment.

As for me,I'm trying to get my creative mojo back  My challenge is to create with minimum art supplies. I just took my small set of winsor and newton watercolors from the US. I bought some artists quality acrylic paints and few brushes from here and am really looking forward to this creative adventure.

Here are some water color paintings that I did last month.

The drink I want to share with  you is a glass of pomegranate juice that I made at home. Here it is hot and humid and this is one of the best drinks that I have had in a while.

That is it for this week. Hope to be back again with a new post next week.
Linking my  creation to T stands for Tuesday
Stay warm


  1. I'm so sorry for your family's loss.
    Your watercolours are beautiful and your juice does look very tasty, what a fab colour it is.
    Happy T Day :o))

  2. Oh Susan, it's so good to have you back with us. So sorry about the loss of your MIL. I can't imagine the changes you and your children must have to deal with. I'm glad to see you are starting to share some lovely art, though. Very, very impressive watercolors.

    I've had pomegranate juice before, but it wasn't as pretty as yours. It's been years since I made it. Mostly I just remember picking out all those seeds (grin). Yours looks as colorful as your flowers. Thanks for joining T this week, dear. Glad to have you back.

  3. So sorry for your family's loss Susan. It's good you were able to go home and have this time to spend with your FIL. Glad you are able to make art while there. Your watercolor flowers are gorgeous! And your pomegranate juice sounds like such a wonderful refreshing drink in the heat of a summer day. Happy T day!

  4. I am so sorry for your loss. I know this is hard and hope you can find some comfort in these days. I love the flowers you are creating.

  5. Sorry to hear of your loss...but wonderful that you can spend the time with family right now. Lovely watercolors! happy T day...
