Moghul || WUW Linky Party

Amid the busy weekdays come busier weekends. All the activities get pushed for the two most awaited days of the week. Cleaning the car, grocery shopping, mall hops, bank visits, family trips, birthday parties, get togethers, catching up on sleep, sparing time for hobbies and spa appointments make the weekend schedule tighter than the rest of the days. 

Infact, I have come to the conclusion that vacations are more tiring than routine. We often end up pushing ourselves to go the extra mile to make the most out of our days off, forgetting that we started with the intention to relax.

Anyway! This past weekend we decided to go with the flow of things. We stayed away from the word 'PLAN' and... it turned out to be great :) Impromptu cooking plans, shopping with no specific agenda, movie, games and painting!!


Presenting- 'Moghul'
















The easiest part of the painting was to choose the color for the Moghul and his elephant. That shade of blue is on my mind these days! The weekend apparel shopping is a clear proof. For once, I happily agreed to Sanket's (yet another) choice of blue t-shirt! Royal Blue for Royals!! 

Happy October Friends :) My favorite time of the year is here!

BE-CA-USE

I carefully spelled the word 'be-ca-use' in my head and my hands traced the letters on the ruled sheet of paper, as I answered the question- 'Why should we cut our nails regularly?'. I let out a teeny, tiny smile as I wrote 'because' in my cursive writing. I always did that - the smile - unintentionally, of course. You see, 'because' was the first 'big' word I had learned to spell. My mother had taught me the thumb rule to learning spellings: 'break-the-word'. I had remembered to use the rule ('be-ca-use') and that was a reason good enough for me to be happy and proud.

That was me as a grade 3 student taking her science exam.






The 'because smile' gradually fainted. 'Because' is no longer a difficult word for me to spell but the teaching still remains- 'Break the word'. 'Break the problem'. Conquer it in parts! 

No matter how tough the times are, I have learned to overcome them, taking things one at a time- breaking my problems into molecules and catering them in the best possible way.

A distant goal does not terrify me. I know, it's the tiny steps that I make towards it that count. Lesson learned - Break the Word. Break the Problem! Conquer it in Parts!

It's That Time Of The Year || WUW Linky Party

I woke up to 60-something degrees and a gray sky, today. Perfect weather to add to my laziness! Crashed on the couch only minutes after leaving the bed and decided to take a nap for '5 minutes' - a Power Nap, right at the start of the day! Yeah! That's ME!! The nap, however, did not last even for 5 seconds! It was as if somebody had whispered the words- 'A week to go for October!'

And then... It brought happy thought about...
