Inky marks all the way and turning over a not-so-new leaf.........


11;05 pm - Reading some wonderful blog posts, chatting with R (she calls herself "my bitter-half"), doing my commission research on the side and waiting for K. 
K has decided to go for a walk like a lunatic at this ungodly hour. Who walks at 11 pm! Who!  Actually I am sorry, correction- he is not a lunatic. He is the best! (Have to say something nice about him since he is my number one blog reader/fan/critic/husband and continuously keeps a tab on what I post)
I would have joined him for a walk, but my legs are sore.
You know why?
Because I finally joined kick boxing classes! Plus for the past one week I have been walking 6 kms everyday! Okay, that is an exaggeration. Three to four times this week I guess.
 First step towards pseudo-fitness. (Let's see how long it lasts).
To celebrate this  wondrous change in me I hogged five jalebis. Why the hell is a Gujju house filled with sweets! 
Mohan thal, mysore pakh, barfis, jalebis, sattas, etc.You name it and we have it!
 (If you don't know these sweets then go google them, it's worth knowing them)

I have so much work piled on me and an urgent quick order to give in one day which I have taken upon myself because I am Wonder Woman. Actually no. I am just someone who can't say no when anyone wants my art. Art is so special and I love spreading it around, so I always take every order to make people happy. No matter how short I am on time, or how crazy my mood is! Unless I really can't do it, then I feel so sad and guilty to say a no. But overall I love spreading my Ink Tales every where I go. Many homes right now, hold my Ink Tales in their cosy homes. Glad to spread my mark around little by little. One ink stroke at a time I say. Something to be grateful for. Thank you God/Universe.

On a happier note, guess what! 

In my previous posts if you remember, I complained that I lost my precious/treasured/love-it-to-death Harry Potter book. (1/7) Well, I found it! I thought I left it in the cab, but turns out it was stuffed in one of my shopping bags which were lying around the room for ages and I had not bothered to open. I must have stuffed it in the bag when I was cleaning the room. That's what I do. When I am cleaning and am extremely bored, I just chuck everything that is lying around in one big bag. I then go ahead and hide that big bag some where. Done! The room is clean! 

That's all for now. Here are some pictures. I will surely start putting more pictures soon. 

Since we share our wall with a wonderful Jain temple, it's a lovely sight to see as its all lit up due to Paryushan (Jain festival). 


And here is my layout for the week I had created. Still trying my best to beautify my planner and obviously stick to it. Thankfully I have followed it properly this week. Had a full floral/panda theme going on. Is anyone else working on their planner? It truly is satisfying to create and follow through. Do try it out.

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…

Some "Arty" talk while he does Origami....

I have been trying to find time to write a post about my travels but it has been impossible to do that. They say you "got to make time", but sometimes there just isn't any time for anything! I sometimes wonder, where the hell are these precious minutes going?

It's a lazy Tuesday today and a full house. After a very elaborate lunch of chole and vadas, cake and custard along with some paan. K has slept off and I am feeling sleepy just looking at him. But no! I am going to write and then do some art.

Thankfully I have gotten a good number of commissions since I have come back. I have two more to do, which I shall start today. I finally got around to re-create an Islamic pattern few days back. I was so happy while making it but really devastated with the way it turned out. It took me ages just to construct the grid and then I colored them up using pens. Not very happy with the look and finish of the design. Realised I have a long way to go. I need much more practise. Actua…

To the 2016 that was and a 2017 that will be...

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…
