Vacation @ HoMe

Happy Republic Day!!!!

The national parade down raj path in Delhi amidst the dense fog, cultural events, most awaited “Mile sur mera tumhara” album, the tight security all over the country, The National Anthem, the prestigious Padma awards, Bravery awards, patriotic movies in all channels and the National holiday.....is my scrutiny of this day....Somehow it manages to bring out the sensation of patriotism in me and enjoy the aftersaid with utmost interest, making this day unconventional!!!

Am back from my 4 day vacation from mom’s house and did not want to extend it since hubby will be at home and would not like to miss a chance to spend the holiday with him!!! So what if he is at home???? he will anyways begin his morning with coffee in Brahmin’s with his friends and will be out for some other labour during the day, t
hen the usual lunch and his usual most awaited noon nap, making no difference to me and go back to my usual DVDs and Notepad.....

No grumble, since Its the republic day events at television today; which is keeping me in mood and not to Rant about the routine. It’s the FIRST time ever, I have shown such keen interest to watch some parts of the LIVE event from Delhi and the making of Mile sur ( Result is am quite dissapointed and prefer the old Mile sur).

**********
Will be attending another Reception this evening and highlight seems to be music by Shashidar kote. So hoping to have some nice music filled evening, apart from watching those lovely clothes and accessories and all the jazz that comes as a package, admitting shamelessly ....Last week,in such a similar gathering; loved one of the ear-rings ( Gold Jumka’s) worn by some lady and I did walk up to her and flushed out the compliments till she went red , but seems like I wanna get them for myself now...When I spoke to Hubby, he never even responded ( Hmmm....)

Some Highlights from my vacation ......

Attended “Madhwa Navami “ function at the temple performed by this specific community and surprisingly loved it for the arrangements and food....The dance and drums came as a pleasant revelation and loved the small dance we women had to do as a part of the custom...I danced with mom for the first time and will cherish it forever!!!! (Dance in the sense, small steps holding hands and swinging....)

I really fought with sissy on so many issues, which gave a after - feeling of being so Normal....we even exchanged clothes, just like those days in college...
All 4 of us freaked out last Friday in those lanes, where we spent out childhood...I was a small girl, enjoying every min of my outing.... Discovered heaps of Veggies near home, which are bought everyday from Magdi FrEsH , a Beauty. I love the sight of vegetables, staring them can bring such an excitment......

These Lovely VeGgIeS....
