1. Introduce ourselves
2. Tell our routine activities.
Let us see how :

I wake up at five in the morning. I brush my teeth and drink a glass of warm water. Then I go for a walk. After that, I make breakfast for my family. I cook lunch and pack tiffins for my husband and children. I read the newspaper for half an hour. I spend some time with the plants in my garden. After that, I wash clothes and dust all the furniture in the house. Then I take a bath and worship God. I eat lunch at one in the afternoon. I buy fresh vegetables every day.
