We are in India.. Surprised the families for Diwali..:)
The last year has made me realise that life waits for no-one.. and there is only one way to live it..to the fullest.
I had a health scare early last month and had this urge to see the family,spend time with them and so the trip happened. Thankfully,all is well now..nothing like family support to fix your troubles..I have the answers I needed and am feeling much better now.
Now on to the trip..Ms.A has everyone charmed with her big girl talks and lady-like charms and Ms.An has everyone smitten with her cuteness and mischief. I swear Ms.A is like a pre-teen,lounging in her aunts room..watching her shows,reading comics and doing her abacus work without me having to tell her.She has a specific shopping list and knows exactly what she wants.
Ms.An ..well she is Ms.An..she follows the family dog with his food bowl and hand-feeds him little nuggets of dog-food..types away at Nanu’s keyboard and tells him “Go Away ..its my noom” She is happy to play on her own..not worrying about anything or anyone.She happily goes off with anyone she meets:)
The internet connection is bad here..so I
feel felt a bit lost without my usual dose of FB and WhatsApp…but a week later,its actually nice.. I like the idea of being on my own.. not traceable 😀
Not that I am ever on my own.. SD is working so the girls are forever stuck to me..I want to get my hair done..:( may be I will take a trip alone next time.
More when I get back home…till then,be good and take care of yourself..
I started writing this post last night..Ms.An woke up at 2 am for the third time in last 4 nights.. First it was a rash,that was super itchy,then and ear-infection and then the rash again,last night. SD kept checking on her-she kept jumping from my arms to SD’s ..Anti-histamines took forever to kick in and we spent the next hour or so,sitting like this..
Ms.An sitting between my legs and reading books..She was so frustrated and I was so helpless at the end..finally,we fell asleep a little after 4:30 am. Exhausted now. Turns out its a viral rash-possibly from the sandpit(??) and also has a double ear-infection..:(
So,please send us some prayers ..xoxo
Sharing an old post and fond memories 🙂
Ashtami always brings back fond memories to me.
My mom used to fast for 9 days during navratri and on the 8th day that is Ashtami, she would do the Kanya pooja or Kanjakein. She would invite 9 girls or more depending on the number of little girls, who were our friends or neighbours. Little boys were also invited so as to not make them feel left out. But the chief guests were the Little girls. These girls were invited home with love, their feet were washed and decorated with haldi-kumkum and aalta. The holy thread was tied to their tiny wrists and then they were all made to sit in a line and a group aarti was performed for all of them. And then came the best part. Then they were all served the traditional bhog of Halwa-Poori- Chane! And there were also gifts – money or bangles, toys…

Yay!! start of every new month,makes me so excited,like something big is going to happen…This time something big is really happening..each passing day brings us closer to moving into our own house…*knock on the wood* And there are so many things that need to be taken care of-decluttering ,packing,more decluttering.. decisions to be made.. My head is about to explode with all the information my brain is trying to process and retain.
I am spending most of my free time,contacting tradies and researching various options for blinds and finding the right deal on the furniture!!! Oh that and trying to declutter!! After living in the same house for the last 5 years and the fact that I am a hoarder,its going to take me forever to clear/pack up the house.So,I also
waste spend time looking for decluttering advice,organising the house,etc. on the internet.
I can’t wait to share all the details and pictures with you..just waiting for some final details.. please keep us in your prayers and your fingers crossed for us…
