Mixed Vegetable Soup With Dhal

"Winter is the season in which people try to keep the house as warm as it was in the summer, when they complained about the heat."
The above said is true esp to me. I was complaining non-stop from starting summer to end about how the sun was attaching me with his blazing rays-sweaty in the kitchen ect. The summer season is over and winter is spreading his chillness around us and me complaining how cold it is.That's human nature I guess :D Yesterday morning I couldn't even see a thing outside my apartment-so misty,coldly and foggy. I really wanted to enjoy these foggy climate but my body doesn't really agree with my mind . My body was screaming at me "Get back to the house now or I will freeze to death".Eventually I went back and was think how to comfort myself .Think !!!Think!!! I made myself a very healthy soup and really enjoyed each spoonful with delight.
