These are water filled bubbles/pebbles. It feels squishy squiggly mushy. In full kind mode since yesterday. Valentine’s day and love month and all we feel is love and love only. Yesterday sun music was fully loaded with love songs. Remembering all the beautiful moments from yesteryears and yes yesterday was real fun. Coming to today, sky is in cloudy drizzly feel and my mood matches the universe, in need for some comfort food and comfort cozy siesta. Planning on working with wool today and read some book pages. Was also thinking of writing some stories or poems lets see…
Always remember the saying from ancient Tamil literature – சங்கத்தமிழ்
“தீதும் நன்றும் பிறர் தர வாரா ”
“Good or bad will not come to you from others”
This is the apt thought for the current day cumbersome, chaotic world which totally lacks patience and discipline. I am living in a big city and the traffic in the roads here does not have a proper dictionary word to explain it. Leave that thought for later. Pay attention to your thoughts always and keep editing and scrutinizing it so that there is not even a single negative seed of thought. I say it as seed, but i should probably call it a live cyst. Good – feel good thoughts rarely form a chain of feel good thoughts. Think of minus ones, there is a whole length of cargoes tied to that one single minus thought. Experts say that our thoughts form the basic units needed to build a strong DNA and that it is not always the build-in genes that makes your total and complete personality.
Always remember :
When something bad happens it was you who formulated the event by thinking that one negative thought. And at the same time remember that when you feel good you attract goodness towards you. Stay Positive… even if the whole world stands against you in the opposite direction. See no bad, Listen no bad, Talk no bad. Only then can you experience goodness in all things that is Life.
I am planning to create a vlog for inspirational purpose both for myself and others. It’s been on my mind for a long time now. This is an inspirational words board which I created during times of distress and it helped me a lot. After this I started BuJo and it is fun to do all the writing and drawing and doodling after a long time I am using all kinds of stationery items along with some new items like Brush pens and bold sketch pens. I started it as an experiment only but I hope to take it forward. Vlog creation + podcast listening + Pinterest exploring are my current hobby ideas. Many times I want to do a lot of new things and for that my share of investment in terms of money is considerably high. I would not disturb DH much this time. I explored some work from home options but in vain. I do not have idea as to who would be reliable or genuine when it comes to work from home.
I have started to de-clutter my space and there are a lot of doubts about what to discard and what not to. i see a lot of infographics with this regard but the final decision stays within my hands. See you in next post TC all…
I have been away for quite a lot of time now. I have been building and upgrading my lifestyle slow and steadily. I have started BuJo experimentation. I have created a habit tracker and improver. I have begun bi-cycling. I have put more importance to my daily meals. I have created a t-shirt yarn bag for quick market visits. I have added new song list and ring-tones to my mobile. I have attended a few get-togethers and met and interacted with friends and family. I have been trying a few experimental gardening practices. I have started new daily routines to enhance our quality of life both physically and spiritually. I am keeping a record of all things good and I am practicing appreciation as a powerful tool to improve self worth. I am trying to improve my contacts with high intellect people. I also am planning to improve my education. Todays weather is absolutely gloomy and others on a later post. TC all.
This image is that of the flower buds of the sombu plant i.e,. saunf in hindi or fennel plant in english. Their leaves are very delicate and it looks beautiful for the eyes and beautiful to touch as well. These buds come in clusters and then yellow colored flowers bloom. Quite lovely to watch these plants grow. I have planted a few mango seeds today including the husk / pit. I do not know how it will work but I am hoping the strongest of them would grow anyhow breaking open the hard shell part.
Book update – Finished reading ‘Sita – Warrior of Mithila’ and ‘Ram – Scion of Ikshvaku’. These two retells the story of Ramayana in modern context. Some parts of the story are acceptable and intriguing but some others make us doubt our long fed belief system. Hoping to find more answers in the third part of the book which releases next year. More how many parts I am not sure. These books has coinciding chapters and mostly the same text are used and it makes me think ‘I’ve read it already’, I mean exactly the same paragraph with the same set of sentences. What else can one do!
Movie update – Only wish-lists here – >>tubelight >>dear zindagi >>life is beautiful >>Cars >> moana >>jackie chan’s new movie – The Foreigner >> etc etc etc
Music update – Listen to “Surviva BGM” awesome for a first listen don’t know how it will grow upon you.
I made this macrame plant hanger using one blue paracord and three clothesline ropes made of gold colored fabric material. It turned out to be good to the eyes and as well as the technique was great making a sturdy plant hanger. I am having a money plant in this right now. Will think of something more attractive in the coming weeks. I did not use the beads as mentioned in the to do blog. One of my friend introduced to me the macrame way of knotting and all possibilities of creativity it holds. I hope you find inspiration as well…
This shawl is made using the NAKO pashmina yarn of light pink shade and a 4.5 size crochet hook. This is the most admired project of mine owing to its uniqueness and easy making. The major type of stitch used is the half double crochet which is the most easiest and brings out the dense effect which is desired for this kind of beauty. It can be worn as a single loop but is most preferred with double or triple loops according to the climatic condition you are presently in and according to the level of warmth you would need at any point of time when you are outdoors or confined to indoors. I loved this work even while making it and love it even more after completing it. It would be my most favorite wear coming winter. I would update on my other works as and when I complete those. Thanks for inspiring and thanks for visiting..
