Weekend… Are We There Yet?

Okay, I’m feeling very ready for the weekend… how long before it is prepared?

The last weekend came and went before I could say ‘weekend’!

  • Mom wasn’t well. Highest priority.
  • Maid went absconding without notice (of course!) … another one added.
  • The washing machine lost its temper for some reason and started responding with electric shocks even when touched lovingly… — washing a week’s worth of laundry by hand
  • The Municipal Corporation decided it was the perfect weekend to break up the road near the house to install a new plumping … that was needed, yes! I had to take a detour which causes a 10 minute delay – if the road isn’t blocked by other vehicles – which of course causes further delays
  • The Air Conditioning went kaput for *only* my room – and I blew the electricity off for the entire house!… phew!

… come to think of it… the entire month of May has whooshed past me and I am left wondering what became of the first half of this year!!

I stopped writing reviews for any serials/TV shows…

For as far as I can remember in May, I can’t remember a night when I slept through the whole night or got even a 5-6 hrs. of sleep.


Thank God, Mum’s reports came out fine and she’s recovering well. God is good and oh…! What a brave woman Mom is 🙂

A new maid came in and, though she’s doing less than the earlier one – thank God, there is help!

Yes… doing laundry by hand was a great workout — in fact, it started me back on the fitness regime as I came to realize a few things about my body after having washed the load. God has mysterious ways! Praise Him… 🙂

The road is better now, though detours are still needed – but thank God, the new plumbing is in.

Thank God for my brother – the chap woke up at 1:00 am in the night to fix my AC and electrictity at home when he had to leave for work early next morning – Brothers are a blessing. Brothers with knowledge on electricity and stuff – are Miracles!!

No more reviews but… a better progress on my writing projects and perspectives – thank God! And as far as TV serials are concerned, I’ve stuck myself to MasterChef India, MasterChef US and The Big Bang Theory… You never go wrong with Sheldon if you want entertainment.

… And rest? Yes, finally, I have begun to try to sleep as much as possible through the night. Though, I’m still yet to achieve this, I’ve made a start.

Hoping for a spectacular June!

My heart wants a new song…

the old days were nice.
they were jolly and bright…
but they’re now in the past.
no more within my sight



my heart wants to sing a new song,
maybe dance to a new tune..
find a fresh, new rhythm
a new melody …. to croon!? (bad rhyming..! sheesh!)

i want to find the song
that will become my own..
 i lost the old one
 and have now let it go (hmm.. just about there..!)

new tunes, new words,
my heart wants to write..
 though i don’t have them yet
 i’ll get to them, no problem (need to work on this rhyming thing..!)

i wanna dig up my old dreams..
 the ones i dared not try
 a lot of which i gave up
 i’m sure they’re still in my mind (… eh.. not quite!)

i’ll try my every dream
to see if they may work..
and see some more new ones
 who knows where i’d end up .. (naah!)

but here’s to life again
to look high and low
 and if i don’t find one
 i paint my own rainbow… (.. hmm finally something)

there’s a dream out there for me
a new song that’s my own
 and though i’m yet to find it
 i’m not letting it go… not this time!

(never mind rhyme.. i like it without rhyme.. my poem, my rules!)
