Post 8 .Friday fill-in

Friday night,a glass of wine,feet put up and I was enjoying watching the opening ceremony of IPL. My daughter and I even danced when apidi podu podu was played  :-) Shah Rukh did a great job of dancing to it too.The day had nearly slipped off, when I remembered that I had not posted for today. So I hurried back online and decided to do a 'Friday Fill-in'. (Every Friday, a set of sentences are posted on this site and those who paritcipate whave to complete the same on their respective blogs.

Here are the questions they asked:

1. In the near darkness _____.

2. _____ till further notice.

3. But this _____.

4. _____ in the stream.

5. It's always nice _____.

6. _____ and pleasant company.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to _____, tomorrow my plans include _____ and Sunday, I want to _____!

Here are my answers:

1. In the near darkness I hear a noise and look out of the window, and nearly jump out of my skin when the phone rings. (this happened to me last night)..

2. Sleeping late in the mornings.No breakfast till further notice. :-) (what the heck--summer vacations are on)

3. But this just cannot be happening to me! Am I dreaming?Pinch me quick!

4. A boat being lashed about, the winds howling,a storm brewing , yet fishes remain calm in the stream.

5. It's always nice when you get kisses and hugs and hearts too :-)

6. Conversations,laughter, a drink  and pleasant company.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to reading my book, writing in my gratitude journal and hugging my children and reading to them, tomorrow my plans include making a nice dinner as we're having guests and Sunday, I want to go to the airport to receive my mum!

Thats all folks! If you do this Friday fill-in, leave me a comment and I will surely come and look :-)

Greetings from Cherrapunji --A heart shaped rock and other true stories (post 28)

We began our day with a trek down the mountains, through the pine forests. We didn't have a guide. Satish and I decided to explore the path on our own. It was slippery in many places, and we had to be certain of our footing, else we would have tumbled down. Tall coniferous trees formed dense canopies, through which sunlight couldn't trickle down. Ferns, spider-webs, mushrooms and pine-cones dotted the path. It was dark, damp, green and oh so pure. We walked down slowly, and a magnificent sight greeted us. I am sharing a picture I clicked.


We climbed back, contented happy souls. We found a vantage point from where we had a view of this very lake that we had trekked down to. I stood there and made a painting.


After breakfast, we left forCherrapunjee.

Just before we reached Cherrapunjee, we took a diversion went to The Garden of Caves in Laitmawsiang. The sight is mesmerising, stunning, fascinating. It is a must-do if you ever visit North-East. The main attraction is the natural…

Meghalya --kissed by the clouds (post 26)

Greetings from Meghalaya. True to it's name, it is a place kissed by the clouds. As I type this, from my picture window, the rain falls gently outside making a pitter-patter sound. It feels like I am living inside a poem.

We drove from Shillong to Mawlynnong, which has earned the moniker of Asia's cleanest village. The drive itself was arduous, as the mountain roads are terrible. Since I ave been so many times to the Western ghats in South India, this just seemed like a poor cousin in comparison. The roads in South India are much much better. After a bone-rattling torturous car ride, we arrived tired and hungry. We ate at a small restaurant (sticky rice, watery dal and some kind of delicious chutney made of onion, tomato and green chillies loosely pounded). Then we began our walk to see the living root bridges.

That was AMAZING. It is a sight worth seeing. I felt the forests in Avatar movie had come alive from the sets and had been resurrected here. I couldn't help marve…
