Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh
O'er the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bob tails ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to laugh and sing
A sleighing song tonight

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

A day or two ago
I thought I'd take a ride
And soon Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side
The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seemed his lot
We got into a drifted bank
And then we got upsot

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh yeah

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one ho…

Heyaa!!!! I am sure all r in pink of health. Its gona be all about baking & baking in my blog for few weeks. Those biscuits or may be bread….etc …..Etc. It’s been long time I have shared ne bread recipe with you guys…. Common today is the ryt time…. I’ll share it with ya all.

When matter comes about time I remember Amma a lot and thtz bcoz wheneva she tells me to do some work I have a answer ready “Amma magiri karta” (Mom I’l do it later). Yeh I was a lazy daughter (not always I must say :P) …………………. Whateva it may be I used to do those work but ‘Not In Time’. :P
Now I feel very bad for it…. But m sure most of them r very lazy b4 their marriage bcoz they Neva have ne responsibilities or something like tht???? Isn’t it??? Anyways I’ll keep pulling on my story later…. So how about the bread talks now????

Every time we visited a supermarket (In SA), my hub used to luk at the pack of onion flake as if he is gona grab them from there…..But then it was “donno how it wud taste next time” ……
