T bag...

I love monolouges... whether its with Chai alias CSH (where he is a silent listener) or with myself or with a T bag...! Here is a glimpse of today's afternoon conversation ... The conversation was between me and the Tea bag...!

I was tired, bored and felt fatigue all over my body. Reaching the kichtenette, I thought to have a cup of hot tea...! I asked myself which tea... (for a change)!!...... Monologue continued for a while (trying to decide which tea flovour should I sip to make myself peaceful, energetic and happy...!
Then came into picture the Lemon Flavoured Tea packets from Twinings..

Tea bag said- "Who wants a dip of me and a sip!!"
I grinned and said- "Me..me..!"..

That cup of tea made my day (must say).

Greying Hairs...

"Be not afraid of growing slowly, be afraid only of standing still."
~ Chinese Proverb
Old-age as it seems ( to many of us) is not that bad... I have examples of active and agile people around me. My grandfather was in his early 90's when he died on a road accident in 2001. I am sure, had that bike not hit him in that gory evening, when he was heading to my aunt's home from my uncle's; he would have been alive with us.

I wish I had been like him.. acive, fit, healthy, agile, strong...Unfortunately I am not.. I am sluggish, creepy, sedentray, slow and hardly move.. I am still, I am a couch-potato..! huh... What will be my fate!! Wondering...Wondering..! (I need to be active, exercising..)

North-east articrafts..

North-east India is no doubt a resource centric region of our country, whether its wildlife or minerals or culture or articrafts.

This time in Dastakar, I met this stall. So colourful and bright, vibrant and gorgeous... The hand woven, sun tanned, colourful rattan baskats from NE (I think Meghalaya stall) was impressive. The cost of these baskets was 400- 800 bucks and these varied in sizes. Love love... I wished if Fifi would have bought one for me..! Beutifully hand crafted into colours like violet, yellow ochre, bright yellow, fuschia, orange, burgandy, red, brown, sap green, indigo, natural dry grass colour.... and many more! The stall was colourful and baskety...! I am gonna buy one of these one day for sure.. :)

Monday Mornings with The Hindu

No doubt I suffer from the chronic disorder "Monday Blues" or "Mondayphobia".

But Mondays can be at times better.. especially when you get that perfect breakfast.. Few (2-4) slices of warm brown bread, melting butter, all- time favorite St. Dalfour's Thick Apricot preserve, ommlette, bananas and of course tea (in my new mug, bought from a flea market)..!

This Monday was no different  than the other Mondays except for that mishap which shook the NE India. Sikkim shaken by quake on the front-page of The Hindu..! Alas.. Sunday evening  was devastating for many, I guess.. I saw Fb updates "We are shaken", "Ïn trauma, thanks to earth quake"..Ä friend even wrote~"This time I was not sleeping (referring to the Delhi earth quake,that occured few days back), I was walking...!" I felt gloomy with such updates. News channels showing live coverage of the earth quake that hit the valleies of NE India and parts of West Bengal, Bihar.. Monday morning, as it happens, I get various symptoms of Mondayphobia...Nevertheless the previous day's news made me realise I am still better off and that I should be rather cheerful and happy than sulking about my blueing Mondays, irky boss and jammed up traffic on Bangalore roads and blah blah...!

I seriously hope that all my north-east folks and friends are fine and not affected by this devastating earthquake.


Current Mood: Thoughtful and thankful to Almighty

Tuesday Tea

T for Tea, T for Teusday, T for Terrace.. Waah what a combination..! :) :)
Yesterday it rained badly from afternoon till late night. Early morning everything was calm, misty and cold for sure.. No doubt the rain of last night drenched all. 

After the Rain...!  (I am thoughtful now....)
I am enjoying life to the fullest. Hopeful that I get the desired job soon (fingers-crossed)...Having the Tuesday Morning Tea with Sygonium plant is making me all :)  
As I always say, one should enjoy his/ her/ their morning tea ritually..!

 Tea tatses even  better when drunk in others'cup.. This cup belongs to CSH but no wonder I love his cup and drink my tea in this when he is not around (rather not at home)..!

(I have broken my cup.. :( yesterday morning while I was hurrying for the bathroom to et ready for work)!! Aah I will miss my cup now.. But doesnt matter I will replace it with this one now (temporarily). May be I will get a new cup for my bitter half and gift him on his birthday and grab that too... Anything is fair for a cup (of tea)....!!

For Healthy Life..!

For a healthy life, one must have a healthy and sumptuios satiating breakfast.  Some love to have heavy breakfast while some like me love eating less like a bowl of corn-flakes or mueseli or 3-4 slices of brown bread with an egg or some nuts and raisins with dates.. and ofcourse tea with some crackers/ tea-puffs and juice, not to forget...!
Nevertheless, breakfast should be one choice and should be eaten leisurely and happily.

No doubt they say...

"It doesn't matter what time of day it is, as long as it's your first meal, it's breakfast."  :)

Btw Heinz 'Apple-carrot-ginger'juice is my all time favorite juice and I love to have a glass of it in the morning..!

A pet...

in Life is a Mate for entire Life...!  
They are the best pals one can have.
We all love to pet some or the other animals. Of course there are exceptions where a man doesnt like any pet. But they don't realise what they miss out without a pet with them..! I too had a cat (named Gunu) and fishes (named Zoe and Zunni).. :)
I dedicate this photo for Atmaja's love for felines (dogs) and Canids (cats)..!

No doubt,
The difference between friends and pets is that friends we allow into our company, pets we allow into our solitude.
