Wednesday wool-gatherings


6:24 pm - Well rested and all high on energy. I am now ready to tackle my orders. This month has been going great by God's grace. I am so happy with the way my kick boxing classes are shaping up. I hogged on pizzas, Maggi and Coke yesterday which I burned up today thus I am "guilt-free" at this moment.

Anyway since I have not made a Monday Musings post in like ages, thought I shall make one right now. So let's name this post Wednesday wool-gatherings. 
Wool gathering means - indulgence in aimless thought or dreamy imagining; absent-mindedness.
(This post is not about wool, wool products, or me knitting anything. It is not about a sheep either.)

Looking out my window -
 A wonderful twilight and a big lovely tree. Some of the leaves are turning red so it's a pretty sight. 

As I ponder - 
How the hell am I going to finish all my orders due by the end of this month. How will I also participate in this competition I am planning to join as the due date is the end of this month. Actually I was planning to go on a break just to focus on the competition but as I have mentioned before, I cannot say "no" to good work. 

What I am learning- 
As usual my over-thinking/anxious/stressful/psychotic nature hampers me when it comes to enjoying the present. I am really trying hard to not think about the future and enjoy the present. I am trying to be grateful for what I have and not spoil my present over the anxiousness of the future. 

What I am creating-
Working on a commission. So basically creating a lot of art this week.

What I am reading-
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Yes, I have started the complete Harry Potter series again.

What I am watching-
Friends Season 6. I am watching the complete show again.

What I am hearing-
Ae Dil hai mushkil by Arijit Singh is on loop. Lovely song.
Mirzya by Daler Mehndi. Another great track.

Pictures I want to share-
I had gone to this lunch party where someone got this amazing Parsi dessert. I have no idea what it is called but it was really good. If any one of you know what Parsi dessert this is, do let me know.

The chandelier and design of the Iskon Temple ceiling. I love taking pictures of lights and lovely designs. 

What I am drinking-

What's happening in the kitchen -
Dhokla, rotis and vegetables. 

A quote I want to share -
"Magic happens when you don't give up, even though you want to. The universe always falls in love with a stubborn heart."
K had sent me this in the morning to get me all motivated to work!

Looking forward -
To September end so that I am done with my commissions and I can work on a great project idea that K and I have planned together! Stay tuned!

A peek into my week -
Kickboxing, acupressure therapy, grocery shopping and loads of art work! It's a busy week! Waitong for Saturday to see my folks!

Final thought-

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…
