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?

I caught the “make tea for ME” part. My kids refuse to learn for this very reason. 😀
Such a lovely day you had. I am waiting for my secret santa too. 🙂

Secret Santa? woh kya hai…this year somehow he lost my address 🙁
Chai ka cup…I am longing for someone to make that one for me! 🙁
Movie with someone who is as eager to watch it with me…still looking for company 🙁
So you see, nothing really exciting for me yesterday, before that day or any day per se. The only solace- a hopping, chatter box that keeps running around in the house like a naughty mice. 😀

That Aah! to Aha! expression is so cool. I’m borrowing it from you 😉
As for the Aadhar card, I look like a terrorist from some gang. I dont understand why all photos taken for the records are so bad. I mean, look at all my fb/instagram pics 😀
And a friend is sharing books with you? Wow, I’m already so jealous of you.
Good luck with your challenge 🙂

Speaking of adhaar card I need one too 🙁 and well waiting for couriers how I love that. Especially with secret santa in the air 😀

I got my aadhar card done thankfully. I heard they are asking for it a lot these days. You must be very eager for those couriers.Can totally understand. I am usually so desperate for packages after I order books online. 🙂

Ah Secret Santa, isn’t the wait and guessing game fun Shilpa? Aah! to Aha! reminded me of moov ads, enjoy the Aha moments 🙂

What a great day you had!! May God bless you with each day full of happiness and joy and satisfaction.

Posts like these are the bestest gifts that Aaryan can receive. This post surely will make his day brighter in his older days.
My FB visits has come down, after 4 days, i logged in yesterday. slowly my interest in FB is waning.

Aaryan can make a perfect cup of tea?! Boy, is he going to be an eligible bachelor or what!! 🙂 Kudos to mommy!!

My maid went on two weeks vacation which ended last Sunday and she is still not back. I now feel she might not be coming back. Made a few calls to manpower service agencies, so as to save my job. 🙁
Aadhar card & election ids…something I have to get cracking on. 😐
D3, not yet seen and somehow no one at home has been talking about it either. 🙄
I don’t take tea, but I made tea four times yesterday: twice for hubby and twice for the carpenters working on my kitchen and my study-table-cabinet. 🙂
Had lots of chit-chats with the girls and got back to reading and writing on blogosphere. 🙂

Lots of Aah! and Aha! moments there! 🙂
I so agree with you on thinking of going back into warmth of quilt in such cold weather.
January 8, 2014 7:06 pm|
Your post made me smile. Such heartwarming moments. After all, what else is life? 🙂
January 8, 2014 7:07 pm|
You’ve got a little champion alright! But then he has great examples in both of you! May all your days be so blessed. 🙂

You had one news that your maid was not coming, but see you must have kept all windows open, so good tidings came from everywhere.
Your son learnt to make tea for you, you are getting books from your friend and you have all decided to watch Doom 3 together.
Amazing, how when one door closes million others open.
Have fun watching the movie with your son.

Aryan is really special. Hold up that teacup and say cheers to many more Aha moments.
January 8, 2014 11:50 pm|
Looks like you had an interesting day. And, Aryan is a good kid.

Your post will truly make a very sweet memory for Aaryan in the future. I guess that’s why we write so that maybe someday they’ll look back and remember. Enjoyed your post.

So sweet.. Art of making tea!! Great post of the simple day with so many things happening around you. I love the way you put it up here. Nice one Shilpa.
