My Day, Yesterday
No, there was nothing spectacular about my day yesterday. It was a regular day, like any other normal day that had Aah! to Aha! Moments.
Got up in the morning to see dense fog outside the window and the first thought was to get back into the warm quilt but then one has to earn their daily bread and butter and jam! So, without much ado, started with the daily chores of logging on to Facebook, liked a few pictures and a couple of status updates, then read comments on the blog, wished Good Morning to friends on WhatsApp and while I was about to check Twitter, my phone rang. It was Krishna Bai’s husband informing that his wife wouldn’t be coming to work, as they had some work at the bank! An Aah! moment for me!!
And this reminds me that we are so glad that we all got our Aadhar Cards. KG and I got it last month while Aaryan got his yesterday! Did I tell you that my picture, the one clicked by the executive at the Aadhar card centre was like a mugshot of a criminal. I requested the young lad to click another one. He obliged immediately with a smile, though KG was seen clicking his tongue!
Aaryan asked me yesterday, if we could watch Dhoom 3. I immediately logged on to the website and found that there were only 2 shows in the evening and both wouldn’t suit us. The one at 6.30 pm was too early as KG wouldn’t be home by that time and 10 pm one was too late. Since this movie isn’t in KG’s (and even mine) Must See List, so I suggested that Aaryan and I can go for a morning/afternoon show. The child though is keen to watch this D3… guess, he is under a lot of peer pressure, simply declined my offer. He said that he’d watch a movie with all 3 of us together! I was speechless, my eyes brimmed with happy tears and it was truly a proud and a Aha! moment. When this was narrated to the Dad later in the evening, he has promised that this movie would be watched by all 3 of us soon!
Had a small chat with a friend and she generously and lovingly decided to share a few of her books with me. Am I thrilled? Every door bell that’s been ringing after that conversation makes my heart believe that it’s the courier from her! By the way, a few of us decided to play Secret Santa to each other. Yes, Christmas surprise has spread over to the New Year! I have done my Santa duties and am now waiting keenly for my Secret Santa to bring my goodies! So much of excitement and anticipation is in the air!
The day is special also because, I taught Aaryan about the ‘art’ of making a perfect cup of tea for me. He has been a eager student and wants to do all things on his own, without my intervention, but the motherly protective instincts take over.
So, this day goes into the memory of this blog, for Aaryan to re-visit these memories sometimes later. How was your day today?
