A day in my life (Blog marathon post 9)



Today was a whirlwind of a day for me. I started my day at 5.30 am.

I went for my   run/walk.(I run/walk every  single day).

Later in the morning, I met two good friends of mine, both authors, at a pub in Bangalore. We had a great time.
Right next to the pub was a wonderful little store that I discovered, which had the prettiest, cutest, the most well designed pieces for your home. I felt I was in wonderland as I explored the store.
I  couldn't resist buying  three really pretty containers, for growing Mint, Basil and Parsley. I shall share pictures, after they grow a little bit. I also bought a miniature watering can. A tiny one which is smaller than your palm!

As soon as I got back home,  my dog was waiting and I walked her. We went for a long walk. Each time she explores the same path we have walked on, thousands of times by now, we discover something new.

The one thing that I do, when I walk is listen to podcasts.  I highly recommend listening to podcasts, over listening to music , when you walk. There are several interesting podcasts out there. Some are fascinating and really make you think.

Then I took care of several work related emails. I wrote a piece for a newspaper. I gave a couple of interviews. I continued the discussion which I was having with my author friend, this time over texts.
I discovered that someone  was sly-tweeting about me, and I promptly blocked that person.
There's really no room in life for negativity or negative people.They aren't worth thinking about and you should cut them out from your life, as much as you can.

I lit the lamp at my altar, I offered my prayers. It is a ritual I follow, daily. I shall share pictures of my altar sometime. Then I went out to my garden, and tended to my vegetable garden.

After all of this, I cooked a simple dinner.

And once again,  my furry baby and I set out on another long walk. (She needs a LOT of exercise).

In between I snapchatted and instgrammed a LOT with my daughter and son, who are both abroad for college :)

Now I am going to read my book and call it a day.

How was your day? What did you do?
Tell me in my comment box. If you share I am listening.
 (Isn't it nice to peek into other's lives? I love doing that :-) )

  2. I admire the life you have created for yourself. What an active day you had. I also enjoy a peek into the day of certain people.
    Highlight of my day was how it ended with a long swim in the temperature controlled pool at the local sports club and watching the gorgeous moon thereafter. The rest of the day was office work and home chores, and yes, instagramming and connecting with family and friends :) I also fed my plants with some plant food.. its really hot here in Dubai and I do my best to keep the little green corner happy.

  3. I really enjoyed reading about your day. With your kids not there, I guess you and Satish are empty nesters. I used to follow your son's blog as well and miss his posts. My day was okay. Went to work and came home in the night. Was feeling a little low as I was down with a cold. After getting a good night's sleep, I am feeling a little better.:-) Take care.

    I love the way you are humble and how inspite being a public figure you don't feel vulnerable to share this post. :-)

  10. I agree with what everyone has written above about you. Despite being a public figure you share details of your life so easily thats that's a great thing in itself. That shows your true connection with your viewers or readers which is not just by the books you write but by the minute details of your life that you share with us. This is the real way of connecting with people and making them part of your life and being part of their life. I also like your positivity and its an inspiration for me as I m lil pessimistic. I am lawyer and a mother of a 2 year old child. Hence my life is in a diff phase wherein i try to grab some free time for myself at night after he sleeps. I have read all your books and needless to mention that they amazing. Thats precisely the reason why I m looking forward for your next book. Inspired by you I checked the writing platform juggernaut and have published two short poetry books in last few weeks. One thing which i lag and which i want to do is regular exercise. Somehow i m unable to fit it in my schedule for the day but shall do so very shortly. I always look for reading your posts on your fb th or blog as and when i get time. I can connect with your life and it's looks simple and normal like common people lives and hence seems very connecting.. .thanks a lot for writing each day and it's something we as readers always look forward to.

  11. Waking up early is a good step to achieve so many things in a day. What a productive day. Mine was good too, woke up to the windy weather, edited an interview before sending, went out for coffee and read a magazine. Coffee and reading makes for great relaxation. Shot a mail, watch NDTV and new reading blogs. I shall work on an impending book review and read at night before going to celebrate our Independence day tomorrow.

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 few books I LOVED reading this year. Post 13

Hello there,

It has been twelve whole days since I started my blog marathon. Time has sped by so fast. In fact, the whole year has sped by so fast. It feels like just yesterday that I was preparing my 'reading wall' which I do a the start of the year. I started this two years ago.
If you want to know what a reading wall is, clickHERE.

It's basically a list of books that I read the entire year.

Many of you have been asking me to recommend the 'best books'. I am reluctant to do so, because tastes vary. It is like  person asking me to  recommend what they should eat. The recommendation would  depend on whether they like South-Indian, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Japanese , Singaporean or any other specific cuisine. It would be meaningless to recommend Idlis to someone  who hates South Indian food.

This is the reason I do not recommend books. My tastes tend to be eclectic. What is outstanding for me might me egregious for you. So, unless I know the person very well, I …

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. :)
