True friends! (post 28)









“I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let's face it, friends make life a lot more fun.”

 

Charles R Swindoll

I met with my good friends Shinie Antony and Vani Mahesh today, both of who are excellent writers. In addtion to being the author of several books, Shinie is also the co-founder of Bangalore literature festival. Vani Mahesh  is an expert on Mythology and she writes mythology. Many of the Amar Chitra Kathas that you read would probably have been authored by her. She si a walking talking encyclopaedia on Puranas and things like that.
They have also co-authored a book, A Kingdom For His Love  which carried a quote by me on the cover!

We  were meeting after a long time, as all of us are immersed in our careers and other things, and we lead very busy lives.
But oh the joy when we met! (as is evident from this picture)
We felt so wonderful, and I feel blessed to have such friendships. (Friendship is a common theme in many of my novels and I feel great to have such good friends)

Life's little gifts (post 27)

Each and every day, I have to take my four legged baby for her walks and I have to take her at least twice a day. I have a doberman (Pics in the previous post) and she is an inquisitive explorer.
She goes so fast sniffing everything, and I have to break into a run to keep up with her.

She finds the most peculiar things---discarded banana peels, garden lizards and frogs.
But today she had a lovely little gift for me.
She found a miniature Betty boop!




Betty Boop proudly stands on my desk now.  She was lost, discarded, forgotten by someone. Now she has found a home :)
What can I say? I am grateful for life's little gifts.

Glipmses of my Sunday--A picture post (post 26)

Each morning. I walk my  four legged baby. She is HUGE.  Everyone gets scared of her. She is a doberman after all.
This picture here, where she is standing next to my daughter (who is even taller than me!) gives you an idea of how big my four-legged baby is.


She is always next to me, when I work. She mostly acts as my arm rest, but sometimes lies next to my feet. Either way, she has to STICK to me. The doberman is also called a Velcro dog.
Here's another picture.



It was my snapchat story too. (follow me on snap preeti.shenoy)



We went out for a lovely drive today. I love how GREEN my Bangalore is.


And that is how my Sunday was.
Relaxed. Serene. peaceful.

How was yours?

Gossip Girl. Serena or Blair (post 25)

Rarely do I watch television. There are very few TV shows that I have watched completely, that too on Netflix, long after all the episodes were out. One of the TV shows was Breaking Bad and the other was Stranger things.

Of late, one show  that my daughter has got me hooked to, is Gossip Girl. It is a teen show about a set of  high school students in Upper Manhattan, but strangely I like it!

We had an argument recently about which character in the TV show was better--Serena or Blair. I made a poll and my daughter said that I shouldn't disclose which character, I supported lest I bias the voters. Fair enough, I agreed.

So I have put up a poll on twitter or if you aren't on Twitter you can see it on my FB page too :)

Vote if you have watched Gossip Girl! There are about 11 hours left.


That's my fun post for today :) It's day 25 of blog marathon. Thank you for reading!

See you tomorrow!
