Happy Onam

Happy Onam!! We made this this morning.
Mom and Anush also did the rangoli together( look up corners of our home on the side bar)

The day began with severe cramps in my calf muscle. Anush was so anxious she kept asking " Is your calf gone amma?" ( presuming it is a variation of cough?) till i told her what calf meant!

Onam Sadya seems to be all over- Ente Keralam, Rasam(Krishna Sweets), Sanjeevanam. . .
If you do need a break from all the mallu food, opt for the Amritsari fest that is on as well in ???.
This Onam is still more special as Navy begins his new job today.
Saw Quick Gun Murugan yesterday- very gory and bloody, too much to take. But some dialogues/ digs were awesome. It should have been a tele serial of 20 minutes duration- that would have been just enough is my guess.

very pretty rangolis! Happy Onam!

I guess calf spasms are something to do with sodium/potassium/calcium imbalances during preg. There...my unwarranted two paisa! Hope it's better now:)

Happy Onam to you too Art, didn't know you celebrated it - or was it just for the pookallam?

Calf spasms, eat bananas!

The floral kolam was awesome :) Onam Sadya is truly all over - turn on the radio or TV and this is what I hear all the time - For yummilicioius chakkai pradhaman/Adai Pradhaman come over to the local Krishana sweets with a clean vessel?? :D LOL at "Is your calf gone Amma?"

Wanted to add this - for calf pain just changing the posture to improve circulation will make it better.
