Skywatch Friday -Party in the Sky

As i watched the evening sky
light up

the only thing that came to my mind

"They were having a party up there"..... ~

Switch off

There are times when i use the switch in my head, and then there are those other times when it goes unused, rusting away...

Off late, i've realised i Switch off when it comes to certain people... I mean earlier i used to just ignore or not care too much, but now complete tune out happening.. Nothing they say, or do goes through me- even the shallow skin surface level. And i must say, am quite impressed with myself.. cos this means i am in full control of my thots, my mind and heart!! :)

Is it a sign of maturity or just a sign of accepting things and people the way they are?
My mom always says - "you wont change, people around you wont change, it will just keep going on like two parallel tracks".. That is so true!! I've known this for a while now, but guess it is coming into action full force now...

Another aspect i've noticed about myself is - life is easier and am happier with this "no /low expectation" philosophy.. Its not that i'm cold or dont care, its just that i've learnt to accept people have their lives, and probably better things to do than deal with my expectations..

It could be phone call
it could be a mail or
Returning a favor or
saying Thanks for something i did or
just about anything under the sun and the moon and stars and the sky.........

But yes, there is that little teeny soft voice inside me that wishes certain people will respond, or give me a tinkle, but alas, nothing seems to happen!! Sigh.. it hurts, but then i just brush it off and keep going... !! Guess thats life!! We have no choice but to deal with it and live with it and accept it!!

Gosh, havent written something this serious in long and being someone who doesnt like to write long posts, am gonna wind up here!! Do let me know how your switch works??!! .. :-)

K 5

Its not a new mountain that has been found ... it is what has me addicted , hooked and  giving me sleepless[well, almost] nights...

Klueless 5, the latest from the creators of Klueless...

For all those with a blank stare, wondering what language am talking or if i've lost it, Klueless is an online game like no other.. As you clear a level, you move to the next one..

  • Each level presents oodles of clues
  • You gotta have your eyes, ears and every other sense alive and kicking..
  • There are levels where the clue/answer stares you in the face..
  • In others, you gotta rack your brains, pull out every strand of hair and wonder what is the clue... 
  • Look here.. look there.. look everywhere!! 
  • Be ready to spend hours wondering what you are missing..!!! :D 

Ofcourse there are zillion blogs and websites where discussions are on, where you can get tips and hints.. but the answer has to be from YOU....

I gotta say a BIG Thanks to Apar for getting me intro'd to this game... Couple of months back she had mentioned it... I let it lie... Couple of days back she resurfaced with K5.. I then started playing Klueless 4, finished it in a day or so and started K5 on 15th Nov, after spending the evening at her place and working on solving a level... we did everything possible, and finally she got it... hehehe... !!!

Another blog friend, Imp's mom is also playing, except she aint so addicted, is taking it nice and slow!! :)

Do give it a shot.. but remember, you wont be able to stop...!!

After a long day... yet fulfiling one... here is all i have to say!! :)

"What's the use of worrying?
It never was worth while,
So pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag,
And smile, smile, smile.

Skywatch Friday .. Lights in the sky!!

Its been a while since i participated in Skywatch Friday, thought its about time i resumed it.. I love taking pictures of the skies, the clouds being my alltime favorite muse...

Here are 3 shots taken recently during on the train journey to  Goa... !!!

The sun retreating into its secret cove... far beyond the horizon...

Leaving behind a trail of orange and blue hues 

 A new day begins... Aah, what it holds, i wonder!!

I clicked these pictures while on the train, the 1st 2 around dusk and the last in the wee hours of the morning as the sun was rising... Completely mesmerised by the colors and clouds..

Here's more on the skies...

It was

 one of those random moments where i was bored and took a blogthings quiz.... Must say the outcome is pretty interesting..... !!

      People Love That You're Witty and Funny 

        You're the person who always can spin a great tale or make a witty crack. You are naturally funny, and you have the confidence to tell joke after joke.

        Only your closest friends see your serious side, and people who don't know you well might be surprised to find out how insightful you are.

     You are a determined optimist. If you have lemons, you will make lemonade... even if you don't have any sugar or ice.

 Of all your friends, you're the firt to raise a toast, celebrate an occasion, or just remember someone's birthday. You try hard to keep everyone in good spirits.

And yes, right now i got no lemons, my basket is empty.. anybody wanna throw me some?? feeling kinda parched!! ;o)

Raindrops keep falling on my head...

The day after i left for my holiday, mom and friends msgd saying its POURING in Chennai.. All i could do was kick myself and say Damn, what timing!! But heck, i wasnt gonna mope about it, i was in the land of beaches having a whale of a time!!

I got back and rains continued.. Infact they've been at it non stop till yesterday, when Rain Gods took a pause, maybe they needed a breather!! or they have a tie up with the Govt [ for those wondering what am talking about - the Govt declares schools shut cos of heavy rains, and voila, not a drop of rain to be seen] :)

Front porch @ home

Its not that i dont like rains, i love it.. Love going out, getting wet in the rain, Love the cool breeze that comes with it.. Love it love it.. Just dont like the Dampness and Gloominess it brings along!!

Sitting in my room, i can hear the drops of rain hitting the ground quite well
Makes me wanna take a cup of coffee or tea,sit by the window and stare outside all day....
Or just lie back, and watch a movie, or maybe 2 [like i did.. :)]
The one thing i would love to do is get out and do something fun

Which we did do on Saturday!!! What fun it was... Tho rains did threaten to dampen our plans!! :)

Went out in the morning a bit...

Somewhere on Usman road...

Again in the evening, went to K's house and then from there we swam over to Apar's place...
Chomping on hot Milagai bhajji [ Chilli bhajji] n sipping hot hot coffee-- Sheer blisss
Also had a bite of yummy Pongal, made by Apar's dad...n tried to get A jr to give us some of his fav Moong daal...

Reflection on walkway @ home

What is it about rain that has us all in different moods?
Was chatting with my cousin who said such a climate makes her wanna curl up and stay in bed...
Another said she just hates the rain cos it keeps her locked up inside all the time
One more was worried about how she was gonna make it to her class and work...
but the one thing we all agreed upon was that - We need rain.. Could use with as much as the Man upstairs wants to bestow upon us...
[this is where i said - i love rain, just wish it rained when it was ok with us..hehe... it was met with angry glares and curt scoldings.. tsk tsk, what friends i have!! :P]

Just as they were... backyard @home

I did what i do the best, take pictures of various places around home during and post rain.... :-)
[Psst., all pics were clicked by me!!]

A cuppa

Its been 3days since i got back from my awesome holiday... and i know i've been meaning to sit and write about it, but time just seems to fly by and a new days comes upon me already....

Sitting here with a hot cuppa coffee, i got to thinking " its about time i sat down to share my experiences" and everytime i read Sri's posts, a big sense of guilt settles upon me and soon it kinda vanishes...:-)

I have quite a backlog, and to top it off, i actually wanted to write and send to travel portals to see if i am any good at Travel writing!! How abt that...!!

Ok, time to go finish my coffee n hit the bed.. Midnite already...!!! [wonder where the day went]
