I seek simple things,get mushy soon and feel good at various times of the day. It is very easy for me to get pleased. Past 24 hours have been simply awesome.
We were invited to attend 3 weddings on Saturday ,morning, after noon and night., at various parts of the city. We attended the morning one, came home tired, skipped the afternoon, and were getting ready for the night one, when it started pouring . Not a right mood to travel to another end of the city 25 k.m. or more , with fine clothes and jewelery. But a friend offered a lift ,and driven by her son expertly in the pouring rain over ditches of Hyderabad, reached the venue late.We were self-conscious, and dishellved, but were welcomed by the gathering cheerfully.
I met many of my friends , and someone whom I had lost contact over 16 years. We used to share a lot for almost two years, but without any rhyme or reason this person abruptly cut me off her life, which left me puzzled for years. It now appears that she wants to revive the ties. May be eventually I can figure out why she did that! This left me with a kind of afterglow and I was super excited, as I do not like to end friendships in suspense.
I was also mighty pleased. Someone was praising my husband, and someone adored him, and it was all very pleasant bantering around. Someone announced that they found a bride for their son,and the wedding date. We invited a lot of friends to come over , since they had not visited us for years.
It took a long time to calm down and get to sleep.
This morning when I opened the PC , I find scores of mails waiting for me to congratulate my 10000 hits of “My Clutter My life” blog! Indiblogger ,jolted me out of morning grogginess, when suddenly I found my name appearing in “Most Popular Posts”.. Wow Never thought that was possible ever!!!
Later I climb the terrace, and start looking at my rain washed plants and soak into the delights of their response to rain. I keep looking at each plant, plucking extra leaves, or some twigs and vines, I suddenly find this:
Hey.. I am so happy.. So many things happening at the same time.. It makes me immensely happy that at last the Dosakkaya thought it fit to grow to a decent size, restore my faith in Organic Terrace garden. How the plants thrive in the rains.
After breakfast, when all are in a jovial Sunday morning mood, my domestic help, calls me excitedly, and shows me something….at shoulder height, near the gate.
These are the small sparrow like greenish birds, who keep pecking at my pots on the terrace daily. They are so fleeting in their movements, I find it impossible to capture on camera.
It is months since the birds succeeded in making the nest in the compound. We had all those rowdy cats which used to drive those birds away, except on top of high trees. There were two/three small eggs inside, and while were looking delicately from far, we observed the little bird hover around and come back whizzing to inspect whether they are fine! What fun and pleasure!!!
My cup runneth over!!!
