November is here- Day 1

So its the first day of the month. First day of the week. Sizeable part of the world may still be on a weekend mode I know. Some may even be trying to crack a code, to turn a Monday into a Sunday too! But here in this part of the world. the weekend is well behind us. There’s nothing worth scribbling at the moment, aside the fact that the summer has started to get milder by the day. Days have begun to get shorter.

Mr Sun which, till a couple of weeks ago, used to be up and about by 4 in the morning in all his fiery glory, nowadays keeps himself snuggled up in the cool cocoon of the skies till as late as 6! I’m not complaining one bit though. I have been waiting for this time throughout the year. And now that it’s here I’m going to make myself feel even better and happier and believe that summer is out and over for the next couple of months. Although, for the Delhiite in me, there’s nothing called winter here, but the coming months will definitely chill the senses as a worthy substitute. I cant wait to enjoy that. A slight nip in the air is already being felt.  Early mornings and evenings have become pleasant. The roundabouts and pavements have started to look beautiful and refreshing with new blooms in sight. A lot of homes have said their goodbyes to summer plants and welcomed some winter plants in their gardens. I have brought home some new plants too to maintain the refreshing change in the season.

Hopefully this little space of mine will get some watering and sunshine too in the form of some posts and updates. *Stops typing and crosses her fingers*

The grateful post

I have been observing a lot of my friends taking up this interesting tag on Facebook lately where they are listing down 3 things that they are grateful for.

I have not been tagged by anyone yet, and I am not regular on Facebook either. But I am quite tempted to take it up all the same. So here I am, listing down what I am thankful for, right here on my blog.

– I’m grateful for my daughter who has this knack of adapting to any change or situation with the wonderful ease that’s worth imbibing. As some of you know, we have recently moved countries. And it is not easy getting used to a new place, that you are learning to call home, as is the case with any shift. But Namnam teaches me and my husband with her resilience and her willingness to adjust to her new life with a smile on her face, that it’s not so difficult either.

– Every visit to a temple, every little conversation I have with God makes me positive, makes me grateful for the life I have been blessed with, for the people I have been blessed with in my life.

– I’m grateful for my husband who brings in an amazing sense of calm in me every time I make use of his alternate role as my vent-board! 😉

So, what are you grateful for today or everyday?
