..and already there’s so much to do. I can’t believe the calendar is full of little notes in blue, red and pink with appointments and events to rush to.
Between the flu, travel and coloring the walls, the holidays seem to have disappeared. Now it’s back to the grind with a hoarse throat, furniture everywhere but where it’s supposed to be, bags still laying unpacked.
I sound like a hunky dude on the phone – not that there’s anything wrong with that ;-) but when your own kid doesn’t recognize you it’s time to worry. My morbid curiosity got the better of me and I compared throats. The insides I mean. Mine looks awful, red and quite close to a bumpy Mars surface, while the rest looked smooth as baby’s bottom. Ok, wrong visual here, but you get the point.
A little worried on the terracotta I chose for the living and dining areas… now I need to go buy more lights to light up a dark space that was quite bright in the 1st place. Am telling you, colors and paints are one tricky affair.
Saw a few movies. Blood Diamond, Don and Khosla ka Ghosla. Plan to review them shortly. Each had a charm of its own.
Don’t have any major resolutions for the New year’s mainly coz I know am not much of a stickler for them. I do have a few things that I need to seriously work on and hoping a master plan sitting on the refrigerator is motivation enough.
One of our friend’s husband passed away on Jan 1st. Sweet man, and up until Thursday he was running around doing his active thing. A stress test on Friday caused them to operate on Saturday, from which he never really made it. A little reality that made us stop and reflect a bit on New Years.
Went to the temple on the 1st evening and got a kick out of seeing my munchkin pray. As in I tell her “that’s Hanuman jeja, can you do namaskaram?” She’d fold her hands and close her eyes for a few seconds and look o-so-serious, with just the slightest of bowing of her head. Her curly hair in a tight knot high on top of her head bob ever so cutely with the way she stomps off from one deity to another. It was fun just watching her.
It’s a balmy 60 degrees out here. We can officially claim to be “globally warmed”.
Hope everyone’s had a great fresh new start. Happy New Year folks!
