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 :-)
See you tomorrow :)

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…

February is here, and so is my blog marathon!

It means that I will be posting a new entry, every single day, the whole of this month! So don't forget to hit 'subscribe' on top of this blog (see the button there? Right on top?) to get my posts right in your, inbox.


A lot of people tell me that they wait for my blog marathon. They write in and tell me that whenever I start my blog marathon, they start their day by reading my posts.


Thank you so much for that! A request--please do leave me comments, so that I know you have read it. Else it feels like I am talking to a wall :)  I will definitely try and reply to all the comments left in my comment box.

On some days, I will be posting the sketches I make.
On some days, it may be a short entry. On some other days, there might be longer posts.
