What is the first thing you do?

What is the first thing you do when you know your family is coming over next week to stay with you?





Well, I clean up the fridge.

After all, how much stuff do you need for a single person who cooks very simple stuff right? But then I have no idea why it always ends up looking like there is a whole grocery store in here. Every time my brother comes, he takes one look at the fridge and then another look at me and tells me ‘at least get this cleaned up before mom comes over, otherwise…’ So, finally today was the day. Just a couple of days before my mom is gonna land at my place. Not that I am afraid of her, I just don’t want to see her eyebrows shoot up in a blatant disapproval, even after all these years 😉 That is my excuse.


What do you do?


Waiting for the next journey

Railway termini are our gates to the glorious and the unknown. Through them we pass out into adventure and sunshine, to them, alas! we return. – E. M. Forster

Finally completed my journal on the Pune Trip that I took almost in Sept-Oct. It was too late, but then better late than never. Before the journey into the next year begins. Before I did that next journey to another place. Before losing those precious moments of adventure and fun of the previous journey and let them fade away from my memory, even if those 1000’s of photographs would still remind me of them. It is always special for me to relive those moments and cherish the small things that we enjoyed and that gets left out in those pictures. I am glad I finished them yesterday along with some more decluttering on my home front for that get together that is planned this time in a very very very long time at my place for the New Years. 

All I wish is that the upcoming journeys in and of life are fun and exciting and wonderful as always. I don’t mind some surprises in between too 😉
