Just another day

Yesterday

Morning:

It is a bright monday morning and I am writing this post for my tuesday's "J" article. I am naming this post "Just another day" to describe my monday at the Mehta household. So coming to my bright morning, I cannot hear any birds chirping, but I can hear loud drilling sounds coming from the construction site right next to my house. I shut the windows as the dust comes in hordes and finds my laptop to settle on.

My K is ill today! I am so happy. Not because he is sick but because he is home. Having your husband home with you on a Monday is a good thing.  I am blogging and he is jabbering on the phone to sort his work at office.  I have done my wifely duties of giving him hot steam for his cold, good breakfast, medicines and now some coconut water for energy. Now it's time for me to work and also walk around the house to make sure the maids are working. (Yeah, that's marriage). Maids, house, food along with my blogging, art and commissions. Can you believe I am yet to start my orders. I am just not getting the time.

People say you have to "make" time. But how. I am honestly still figuring out where my time is going. I really need more than twenty four hours in a day. I feel I need thirty hours atleast.


Afternoon:Loads of food and a bowlful of Aamras later we retired to our rooms.  K scooted off to pick up his protein powder as life without that is incomplete for him. I am finally getting my much needed "me" time. Now I will watch Grey's Anatomy and sketch on the side. Perks of working from home is that you can watch shows and doodle simultaneously. (sometimes)

Evening:

Caught up on my shows, finished one illustration, soaked "sabudana" for dinner time. Its past six and now the Mehta kitchen is roaring alive. Mil is busy making some roasted snacks and in a while we will start making dinner. I will have to take mini breaks and try to sketch in the middle whenever I can. I haven't started my commissions yet. (Somebody shout at me) I miss my Mom in such times. She used to watch me waste time and let me, but when I stretched it way past my deadline then I was dead. So when she would say "enough now, get to work", I would work so well (out of shame) that I would finish my order in less than two days. (Miss you mom)

Night:

 Dinner is done. The Sabudana Khichdi became all chewing-gum like. 
Dil has created a new law for the house. We all have to now listen to something positive every night post dinner at the table. So a ten minute talk of any motivational/spiritual speaker will be turned on every night at home. It's good I guess to end the day on a positive note. But post that I am going to watch a nice episode of Big Bang Theory. Those episodes are truly medicinal. Or else some re-runs of F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

Peace.
PS- The "J" doodle to showcase my love for junk food!! I have hidden all the food I love into this drawing. Can you'll spot what all I have drawn?

  1. Pizza, fries hot dogs burgers! Living away from home those things used to be daily diet, junk all the way. Even though I knew all along its gonna be bad for me, well trying now to quit all that!
    As for not getting enough time, I'll tell you one things I tried a while ago - and that was to get off social media for good. I had to deactivate Fb at first, coz it had become like an addiction for me back then. It took a week of having to control myself, and then suddenly I realized I had gained a good number of hours for my ownself in the day!! That entire process helped me in not remaining addicted to social media (I can't really vouch for much more productive I got haha)

  2. Lots of delicious junk food!

    I like the idea of working from home. But I also like getting ready, choosing an outfit and meeting people other than those at home everyday. I am pretty confused :)

    I like the idea of ending the day on a positive note, though my preference would also be a Sitcom. Right now it is a crime fiction novel :| It's not positive, but it keeps me happy!
    On a side note, I love saudana khichdi :D

Of Modi's and mints...

"Get cash" said my Beautician.

From where, the sky? I retorted angrily. 

Cash has become a huge problem right now. Modi's move is great but it has affected the common man's life very badly. Can you believe it, tomorrow I have an appointment with my beautician and for a meagre amount I have to shell out a cheque since I do not have any cash on me right now. 

I want to go to Pune to visit my Grand Mom and sadly I have no money to pay for the taxi. I doubt that particular fellow whom we contact takes any card payment. So basically we all are stuck. 

Moving on to other issues that I go through...

K has downloaded an app called "In shorts" or something like that in my phone. I am suppose to compulsorily read and study it. Why? K feels I have no idea what is happening in the world and I should know the basics. 

To be honest, he is right. I really don't have that much knowledge about the current happenings plus I truly do not care about "news", what is hap…

Because Mommy hates my eyebrows......

I hate this weather. It's all wet and weird. I am so surprised at myself for nearly finishing my commissions for September. Alongside I even managed to watch two movies. I had decided to watch them only on the completion of my work as a "treat", but well I just cannot say no to a movie night with K. Actually I cannot say no to anyone when it comes to watching a movie. So I ended up watching Freaky Ali which sucked. And Pink which did not suck at all. What a movie!

I called the "Mother" to discuss Pink and the seriousness it showcased about the way women are judged in the Indian society. After ranting for a couple of minutes about how we are perceived and shackled with responsibilities and judgements, she replies -
 "Have you done your eyebrows?"

Now my eyebrows are currently a crisis for my Mother. The fact that her daughter has disregarded the importance of physical maintenance is shocking for her. Since I have been piled this month with maddening w…

Happy New Year Peeps! *sneezes hard*

I just returned from a fabulous seven day holiday and now I am feeling the, to quote my friend R - "Holiday withdrawal symptoms". 
So for me the symptoms are mild melancholy and a viral infection. 
The year 2016 has just gone by too fast. Like literally too fast. It was a year of love, family, travel, art along with loss, hurt and pain. It was a bittersweet year for me. During Gudi Padwa which is a Maharashtrian New Year, there is a famous tradition that we follow. We never did that, well since we have never been a traditional family. Father and Mother have been free birds always and their need for flying free has rubbed on to us. The tradition was to eat a mixture of neem leaves and jaggery. Of course I am sure it must have tasted disgusting but it had a symbolic reference to it. It meant that life would always be a mixture of bitterness and sweetness. We have to hope for the sweet but also accept and appreciate the bitter. We have to accep…
