    Yesterday my sister put a stall in exhibition. It was near my home so we all visited n gave her best luk for sale. It was her very first exhibition. Today she called me up telling that sale was good. She managed to get little profit too. We all were very happy. She said to me as i was her lucky charm it made me emotional n happy too.

    My MIL passed the third year of her bachelor's degree program with a first class. She was married off at 18 and not going to college has always been a source of personal pain for her. She would always say my DIL is so educated I feel embarrassed standing next to her. So all of us kids, DH, SIL and myself encouraged her to enroll in a free-form degree program for senior citizens offered by an institute in our city. Last few months when I called her she would whine, "Aiyyo I have to study. I read and read but my old brain can't remember things." :grinning: She was bursting with pride while telling me she passed. I told her Amma I am so proud of you! It was an adorable conversation. She says first I will get this degree then if I live I will get a PhD like you. Then you can be proud of your sasu! :D

    Day 82 : Today is one such day where i am spending or rather my mind is working on the self introspection.
    So many thoughts and questions comes to mind.
    I have utilized my travel time today listening to good music which is giving positive vibes.

    One of those once in a blue moon days when the kids weren't whining as I packed their lunches. Normally it is, "What are you giving us for lunch?", followed by pouts and frowns. I tried something new today, based on their requests, and they were hopping with excitement. Feedback at the end of day was overwhelmingly positive. Small momming victories can make the day.

    On the subject of food, the yard gods have been very forgiving of my less than stellar performance as gardener this year. Amazing how much a 12'x12' patch of land and few containers can produce! Harvested these today.

    Hubby made tamarind poha with freshly ground masala while I was busy with work. It was delicious!

    That happy feeling you get when you are ready to celebrate Navarathri. Preparation started long back with buying gifts, putting guest list, planning everyday neivadhyam and Sundal - yes everything ready in timetable :smile::smile:, selecting sarees and keeping all matching stuff ready to follow the colour code on all nine days- the marathon begins tomorrow -- so excited :cheer::cheer:

    My golu arrangement is all ready. Waiting for some touch ups and will be ready tomorrow to be shared with my friends here.

    :hello:The message is futuristic & positive. The celebration for nine days with dolls And toys over a large gallery and visitors and hosts in rustling silk garments with a fancy platter going around with sundals and boxes wrapped in gift paper all would find a place in a nice thread from you.
    All the best. Yes you would post here the images of golu in all dimensions.
    Thanks and Regards.
    God - your consort in all forms arrested on gallery for nine days with incense around.

    :hello:Hi to all followers here.
    2. Under azure clear sky with sun raising- I was from my terrace surveying the unobstructed view of distant landscape when I saw a swarm of birds - their plumes glinting in silver sun rays breaking from rhombus pattern to a parabolic arc moving from South East to North west.
    3. A rare view for an urbanite, I consider this as a fine augury for the day. A clear sunny morning with cool breeze in Chennai.
    God glints shines glitters dazzles sheens all across Universe.
