Day 2 and Just Scraping Through…

October is a terribly busy month for me, both at work and at home. Despite knowing the hectic pace of life that I’d be having this month, I decided to participate in the October Ultimate Blogging Challenge and NaBloPoMo. Yeah, I guess, this is a perfect example of ‘being stark raving mad’. And to add to this, it is day 2 and I have NO thoughts or ideas to write today’s post!

After surfing the net for a good 2 hours, I came across this prompt which says:

Grab the nearest book. Open it and go to the tenth word. Do a Google Image Search of the word. Write about what the image brings to mind.

The nearest book is Jamie Does… Spain Italy Sweden Morocco Greece France

This is a cook book and Jamie is KG’s favourite chef.

We have a dinner party at home and he is cooking a chicken dish from this book. Have you observed that we have a dinner party at home and I am busy writing a blog post! Yes, the perks of having a husband who is passionate about cooking!

Coming back to the tenth word… it is FOLLOW. The Google Image that I have picked up is this one…


This image which represents FOLLOW brings to my mind the ways in which FOLLOW can be used…

  • I followed the maid to the kitchen. (To come or go after)
  • I blindly followed the instructions given by the GPS on the phone and ended up taking a much longer route. (To go in the direction of)
  • I choose to follow the guidance of the Reiki energy in my day to day life. (To accept the guidance, command, or leadership of)
  • I usually follow the recipes given in the cookbook faithfully and they turn out great! (To keep to or stick to)
  • “Are you following what I am saying?”, this is my frequent question to Aaryan. (To grasp the meaning or logic of)
  • I have seen that the more I follow the pathway of my intuition the clearer the path gets. (To act in agreement or compliance with)

Ah, a post is done… so random and so time-pass. I guess, if I need to complete this every day blogging challenge, I need to pull up my socks and get my act together.

  1. What I always love about you is the way you find these prompts all over and use them to create posts! Tell us the trick on this. And the other thing is this one really turned out to be an interesting prompt as a read 🙂 I completely followed it 😀

  2. ……………..and Shilpa we followed your blog like the lamb followed Mary to school.
    You have a treasure of ideas even though you say you do not have any topics to write.

  3. It really was a cute post, but there was gyaan in there too. You just taught us differentways to use the same word.
    Looking forward to seeing how the month is going to be tackled.
    Good luck 🙂

  4. Nice thoughts put a little differently. Interesting to read. Jamie is also my daughter’s favorite chef, and she follows all his recipes, and comes out a winner all the time. So there are some benefits in following some one I guess.

  5. Shilpa, hats off to your patience and the strong will power to undertake so many tasks and complete them with finesse. Loved reading today’s post;Your Husband’s cooperation is unique. Wonderful person!!

  6. The day daily post gave this prompt, I grabbed the nearest book, it was critical analysis of Mrs. Dalloway and the google search of the 10th word was lame, so I dropped the prompt that day. 😀

    Anyway, you did create a post with the prompt and its cool.
    All the best for dinner party though. 😀

  7. Does stark, raving mad and incredibly clever go together – loved the post – giggling at KG slaving away while you post!
    I’ve got painters all over my house and I’m following you by doing both these challenges. Do you think they’ll confine us to the same institution? Might be kind of fun – all of us blogging all day long! 😉

  8. LOL!!
    total timepass post no?! 😉
    me likey!!

    Oct is a very hectic month and I too signed up for this madness!! 😀
    I will take this up as a tag when I need it the most! 😉
