13 things.Sunday Stealing.(blog marathon post 14)

Thought I would do a fun post today for the blog marathon. And hence I decided to do a Sunday Stealing:


1. Outside my window… 

is a large expanse of space, a tiny portion of which houses a small organic vegetable garden, currently canopied under a moonlit sky littered with millions of twinkling stars.

 2. I am thankful… 
for the people currently in my life, for my ability to write and connect with a lot of people, a beautiful family, a lovely home, and all of you--who read me.

 3. In the kitchen… 


You can do many other things other than cooking. ;-)


 4. I am wearing… 
 A happy feeling that comes from a day well spent.

 5. I am creating… 

A new novel and it is almost done!

 6. I am going… 
nowhere when it comes to my good friends. Am always there for them.

 7. I am reading… 
three books at the moment, 2 fiction (both romances by British authors) and one non-fiction.

 8. I am learning… 
that sometimes a little distance is a good thing.

 9. I am pondering… 
over whether you will like this post or not!

 10. A favorite quote… 
Many many! You can see the stuff that appealed to me here.

 11. One of my favorite things… 
A cup of strong black coffee

 12. A few plans for the rest of the week… 
Intend to attend the Independence day celebrations, and also to go on a day picnic over the weekend.

 13. A peek into my day…


Typical day goes this way: Call mom. Chat up for 15-20 minutes, sometimes more. Switch off phone. Meditate. Write. Rest. Write. rest. Write, write. Kids come back from school. Cook them a meal, spend time with them, talk to them. Write some more.

A new post tomorrow. This completes day 14 of blog marathon!

Daughters are so special. Post 3

Hello dear friend :)

This is my third post in this blog marathon. Those of you who are  here because of my Instagram post do hit subscribe that you see on top of this page, and you will receive my posts in your inbox.


Writing this like a letter, feels very nice. It is as though I am pulling up a chair, sitting down in front of you and having a chat with you. I read all your comments in my last two posts, and I have replied too! I think that is the nice part about blogging--that we can connect one-on-one, through our words.



Today, I went out with my daughter, and we had an amazing time.When she and I go out, I always drive my car and she plays her choice of music. It's a girls trip, and we cherish this time that we spend together. (you can see stories of our day on my Instagram handle)

I come from a family and background, where women never worked or drove a car. My mother has never worked, neither had my grandmother nor had my great-grandmother. None of my aunts-- either on my m…

A quick and easy DIY for clearing charger clutter. Post 4

Hello!

How are you doing today?

The one thing I dislike very much is clutter. Clutter bothers me, and messes with my mind. I am a huge fan of the Konmari method. If you do not know what that is, and you want to get rid of clutter in your life,  do read Marie Kondo's Life Changing Magic of Tidying. I highly recommend it.

Here's what I did today.



Neat, isn't it?

It isn't hard at all. I made it myself. This is how I did it.

Step 1: Find a suitable box. I used an amazon box.



Step 2: Make a neat slit in the side.



Step 3: Place your extenion plug inside the box, and take out the wires through the slit.


Step 4: Decorate the box! I used washi tape for the edges to make them neat.




And oh--I also made extra hole for the phone charger wires to come out.


Since that side is against the wall, I didn't bother to decorate it, as it is hidden.


I was mighty pleased with it. :)

Like it? Tell me in comments.

Greetings from Delhi! Blog marathon begins. Post 1

Hi all,
This is my first post for my blog marathon that starts today. Many of you, wait for my blog marathons, and have written to me telling me how you like to start your day with my posts. I feel happy to be connected to you, and become a part of your daily lives! Thank you for the privilege.
I am typing this from the skies—from 35,000 feet above sea level. I shall post this later today, when I get a wifi connection.I left home at 6.45 am this morning and I am headed to Delhi for the times lit fest which is taking place at India Habitat Centre. The other authors in my panel are Ravinder Singh (who is also a friend), Andaleeb Wajid and Seema Anand. The great thing about litfests for authors is that we get to meet our fellow authors.But for events like these, we would be cocooned in our solitary writing wells.


Travel is exhausting. I had just got back from a wonderful session at Kolkata. From Kolkata, I had flown directly to Kochi, where I was the chief guest at the inauguration ofa boo…
