And the answer is…

Well, before I go there, I would like to thank Blogadda for featuring my previous post in their Spicy Saturday Picks and Sols for tipping the post! Thanks a lot! It totally made my day!


Apologies for not posting the answer sooner. I got really tied up and will continue to be strapped for time, thanks to a long long to-do list that I have. The fact that daughter’s nursery is on a mid-term break does not help at all.

Now for the answer, according to her, they are duck footprints πŸ™‚Β  So many of you guessed it right.You guys really are creative! I could not figure out what it was until she told me 😦 Here’s the list πŸ™‚

SmitaΒ  – ‘Is that a duck or it is something like leaving foot marks?? Hmm’

Nancy – ‘or ducks webbed feet????’

Tara – ‘pigs footsteps or maybe duck’s.’

And lots of you guessed ‘footprints’ right πŸ™‚

Pallavi – ‘footprints of the little piggy?’

Vimmuuuu – ‘I guess its your foot prints going zig zag, trying to run behind her’

Saritha – ‘foot prints on sand in the beach’

N – ‘left its footprints after playing.’

Pixie – ‘Is it footsteps that she has painted?’

I might have missed out someone, thanks to a very hurried posting – so please accept apologies in advance and do let me know if I missed including your guess – will edit and add πŸ™‚

Hitchy asked me in the comments, ‘What’s baking?’ Here’s what – Banana Muffins πŸ™‚ Please help yourself.


I still have to reply to comments in the previous posts – will start on it today and have not been blog hopping – will do that too, today, if I am really lucky πŸ™‚

  11. Congrats Smithu .. awesome post indeed πŸ™‚


    Thank you Swar! Hugs!!!!! I actually dreamt of you last night – that you had posted about your meeting with Vimmuuu πŸ™‚

  12. You shouldn’t take tension about replying to comments and blog hopping. I know I am the last person to advise as I do too! πŸ™‚ But really, I mean it. I enjoy replying to comments, far too much but I am torn because there are readers who never comment but expect me to post regularly! They actually write and say why the break!! But I feel so happy when someone comments that I love replying too, but it takes time away from posting! And I love reading all of your blogs, its like visiting people, hearing what they have to say and I love reading the comments of others too. Its like being in a room filled with people. Only problem is, at times there is no time for enjoyment!
    And as for those muffins, yummy!

    Same here, I love replying to comments – just that sometimes, there is just no time for anything πŸ™‚ Real life issues end up taking priority πŸ™‚

    ‘ Its like being in a room filled with people.’ – Absolutely! So many views, so many opinions !

  13. i wud never ever have been able to guess the duck feet! lol… they just kinda look like triangles to me! hehehe
    pass those muffins here, would ya?

    πŸ™‚ I know – children’s minds work so differently πŸ™‚

  14. chalo tukka lag gaya πŸ˜› , and thanks for the muffins smi πŸ™‚

    You off to make your to-do list too πŸ™‚ I wish I had somebody to delegate some of the work πŸ™‚

  15. Ha…I knew one of them would click;-D

    Yeah – you guessed it right πŸ™‚

    The muffins look great…thank U for sharing πŸ˜€

    Daughter loved it, she polished it all off, almost single handedly πŸ™‚

    p.s: Almost forgot, Congrats on the Blogadda’s SSP!!!!
    Thank you, Nancy!

  16. Wow-I went back and looked at the pic-and they are duck footprints! Do put up more of her masterpieces-she is very creative.

    More of her masterpieces ! You guys will stop coming here then πŸ™‚

    And your masterpieces look perfect too! (I am not even asking for the recipe-bcox I am sure they will never, ever turn out like yours)

    It is amazingly simple, actually – I could send you the recipe, if you like – I got it off allrecipes πŸ™‚

  17. I protest!! *sakshi sits in front of Smi’s house with a placard reading Hi hi Smitha*

    You gumraofyied me with asking Do you watch Charlie and Lola? so I answered if it was the chicken poohi tried to draw? Didn’t you know that the chicken is a distant cousin of the duck and according to Charles Darwin the webbed feet of ducks were evolved from that of a chicken?

    So I want my name in the list of Brainy People up there πŸ˜€ It will do a lot to boost my image you see 😯

    Protest acknowledged. Anybody who mentioned any of the ducks distant relatives(dinosaurs included) are included in the list of brainy people πŸ™‚ – Happy?

    • Gosh you even had the guts to put Vimmus Smitha’s footprints answer as one of that from a brainy person 😯 😯 😯 x infinity…..

      Vimmuuu mentioned me – so I had to have him there πŸ™‚ If he had said Sakshi’s foot prints – then maybe I would not have πŸ˜‰
