It has been a couple of weeks since the calendar new year set in. Although 2016 has been nothing but nice so far, I received the first best of it recently.
Nothing too great or pompous. However, it was a day filled with calm and content. That coveted feeling of being at ease with life …and sincerely happy.
Wrote down this post moments before I went to bed so I don’t forget 🙂
Friday, Jan 15 – Pongal/Sankranti
Working from home.The hubby working from home too.
Had breakfast, got kids ready and dropped off at school/daycare.
Work related tasks completed quickly. Went easier than I thought.
Phone messages , got invited to 2 different parties over the weekend – both group of friends are mutually exclusive, but very close and fun loving. Super excited about the weekend!
Took a break from work . Got hubby to take a break too and got into bed for some cuddling.
Chatted for a while, laughing and joking about the silliest of things. Was followed by slow steamy foreplay…..then a great ending 🙂
Some more relaxed talk and bonding, followed by a quickie!
Got out of bed, took a long shower. Heart felt light, mind at peace.
Went out for a lunch date – good food. Sumptuous pongal lunch special!
Came back home. Logged into work again and completed remaining work tasks.
Signed off on the laptop and took up some cleaning and organizing wardrobes . Tasks were pending for long.
Got done in an hour and felt proud about the job done.
Picked up kids from school/daycare.
Paapu is a very cheerful mood. While giving her a bath, she showed some new clap songs learnt recently. We did them together and laughed so hard! Felt blessed for that moment together 🙂
Donut was his happy self. Played and tickeled and made him giggle loud. (Note to self: Need to record that sound of happiness)
Heart and mind at ease. Feeling calm and unperturbed.
All 4 got ready and set out to temple as planned.
Had a light prasad dinner at the temple.Met a few good acquaintances and exchanged good wishes.
Returned home and put the kids to sleep.No fuss.
Typing this post sitting on the couch wearing an old sweater. It’s cozy and comforting.
Dark and drizzling outside. Silent and warm inside. Just the clock ticking and the fingers typing away on the keyboard.
It has been the best of days in the new year so far. Hoping to experience this state of mind and heart many many times over.
Good Night now. Stay blessed.
