The Boy’s office is like school where you have to reach on time or enter your name in a late register. Since this school starts at 7:30 in the morning, we have to wake up at 6. He gets ready and I pack his school bag!
The alarm failed us today and we woke up an hour late. He got ready in record time and left home only to enter his name in the late register. Mind you, if you are late more than ten times in a month you can be fired! But it’s a local Gulf bank which treats its employees well in all other aspects...so, you know, it’s all fine.
Anyway, the mornings have been an absolute delight lately. After he goes, I sit by the window and do pranayam watching the sun rise up. I live beside the sea and watch the sunrise every morning. It brings a smile on my face every single day. Since it is winters, I open the windows and let the rays touch my skin. I then make a cup of tea with lots and lots of ginger, open the laptop and soak in the sun again.
Yes, I know, for working people it’s like a vacation. The Boy is super jealous of my lifestyle but hasn’t been able to do much about it. Someone has to work afterall! Most people who sit at home crib about the lack of career opportunities. I, for one, am the happiest housewife you will ever meet. More on that later.
I live on a desert island which is supposed to be a country with hot summers and moderately cool winters. This year has been very different. It has rained quite a lot bringing the temperature down to 12-15 degree. Although we love it, I hate the fact that global warming is responsible for everything that’s changing. Winters last longer than before. Summers are unbearable only for a short while. Rains don’t stop. And you keep hearing about the heavy snowfall and the winter chill in the west.
So what was this post about, again? I don’t know! I haven’t written anything for a while and wanted to update you all. It’s a perfect winter morning and I’m sitting by the window enjoying my cuppa. I’ve thanked God a few times for a happy life. I have a smile on my face and a twinkle in my eyes. With a lot of hope in my heart I’ve started the new year.
Wish you the same happiness.
