Musings on a Cold Morning #MundaneMonday

I woke up at 5 am this morning, feeling the chill in the air enveloping me inside out. I don’t like to turn on the heater as it dries out the air, but I turned it on for under five minutes to help me get out of bed. Checking the weather forecast made me shiver […]

Grateful for the little moments #SoulfulSunday

Once again, I found myself unwell during the Thanksgiving festivities, and another long weekend slipped away as we remained stuck at home. It all began with a sore throat that eventually developed into a low-grade fever and fatigue at the start of last week. Both my younger one and I were at the mercy of […]

Pieces of Us #SoulfulSunday

My Wise Foggy Brain #FictionMonday

This past week went by at a slow pace. We are at my mom’s place and there is nothing to do here.  We have been eating quite a lot. I am not doing anything, anything at all. The first two days I liked being here not doing anything, just relaxing and eating all the food […]

Vacation Tales!

It’s been a while since we caught up on current affairs, hasn’t it? I am writing this while on a vacation in India. Unfortunately, our trip to India, though we call it a vacation trip, had never been anything remotely close to a vacation. Our stay in India even if it’s for a short duration […]

Gratitude Lessons #WeeklyGratitude #SoulfulSunday

Last week was a good one for me. Nothing exciting or out of the ordinary happened. It was a boring, normal, good week. We all deserve such boring good weeks, don’t we?  I have been trying to write my daily gratitudes every night, but sometimes I forget to journal. Then I realized, I haven’t completely […]

Days Of Our Lives #WeeklyGratitude #SoulfulSunday

This morning my eldest left for Florida with his teachers and friends from school. It’s an educational trip filled with lots of fun activities. He was very excited about this trip. Naturally, I was nervous. But his excitement helped me relax.  I have given him instructions on what to do, what not to do, etc. […]
