Not a very interesting title I know! But if I sit here and keep glaring at the screen for some more time pondering over a more suitable title, then I might just lose whatever little drive I have gathered to write a post and shut the window down yet again! This is probably the 10th…or is it 2oth…or 50th..attempt I am making to revive my blog in the last two months. Argh! I have no clue what I am going to type. I’ll simply let my fingers tap the keyboard in whatever direction my mind wants them to…
Vishu, since it fell on a working day, was spent like any other day. R went to office, Namnam to school. However Namnam got her vishu-kaineettam before heading off to school. Even though I made semiya-payasam(kheer), a more lavish-sadya/feast has been put off for the coming weekend with friends.
So what have I been upto in the last two months? Nothing much.
To take off from my last post, the bother’s wedding went off well, we all had a wonderful time welcoming the new member into our family 🙂
TGND, the above pic is of my brother and his wife holding hands. The image I shared in the previous post was a random one uploaded from Google images :). I’m sorry I couldn’t reply to you then 🙂
We got back and it was time for Namnam to begin her new academic year as a second grader. With it began the realization that my daughter was growing bigger, and with that began growing concerns of a learning parent. Concerns about keeping the child from getting negatively influenced by her closest friends without distancing her from them, about lying and being honest with herself and people around her, about learning to be bolder, more assertive…concerns that warrant a separate post altogether, or ‘posts’ to put it plurally. Sigh!
The one good thing to have come out of my self-imposed hibernation though, is the amount of reading I have been able to do. In the last two months I have finished reading 6 books!
Hey all you voracious readers, I can hear your muffled laughter at seeing that puny number-count, ok! But trust me, for a slow and a lazy reader like me this is a huge number :D!
And it is purely because all of the books that I have read so far have been thoroughly engaging and riveting.
Thats that then, of this mish-mash of a post. The weekend is almost here. I’m yet to buy veggies needed for tomorrow’s vishu potluck. So off I go now!
Hopefully with a new week I’ll have something newer and more interesting to share…
Till then bye-bye!
