Hello, Jo and Everyone reading!
It’s still cloudy and windy here. I am having a cuppa and writing this blog entry. I have almost reached the end of blogging month and by the time this blog entry gets published, there will be two more days to go.
Jo, today I would like to ask you that what things I still need to add to my English learning. As a teacher and a native speaker you can suggest me better. How can I make my writing better and impressive? What areas of the language you have found me weak in? Your tips and suggestions will worth a million to me and other learners too.
As for my everyday English learning, I try to keep reading, writing, listening and speaking together for better learning.
Let’s talk something more about a day here. I have already finished the tea and it’s evening right now. My mother has just returned home from shopping, and has brought a beautiful leafy stem of the Tulsi plant with her. You would also like to see some pictures that I have taken.
A close up at tiny flowers
Tulsi is also known as Basil (Ocimum tenuiflorum) or you can also say one of the members of the basil family. It is aromatic and has edible seeds which reside in very small flowers. The one my mother has brought is ‘Thai Basil’, because it smells like aniseed or licorice. I like its aroma because it takes me back to some beautiful memories. Do you know this is one of the ways to relax from a stressful day? If you are tired or gloomy or may be stressed, you can try this out, too.
I like to relax myself by sitting crossed legs in a quiet place with a light perfume of my choice. It can be a scent of cologne, a flower.
What are your preferred ways to relax yourself?
Till then I am off to prepare the soil for tomorrow to sow the seeds of Thai Basil.
