A sunny day finally!

It’s finally a bright sunny Sunday. The incessant rains had the whole of last week dull and damp. I fell ill too. A bad cold, fever and cough. Could it be the dreadful H1N1? My worst fears didn’t come true. :P  I'm all right now ready to kick start the week. The weekend was not so eventful but then it wasn’t totally a drab too. Watched 'Wake up Sid’ on the big screen. The movie lived up to my expectations. Read more about it here. The long due meeting with Rishabh finally happened. I will cherish the hot rasam and rice I had at his home. It was just the thing I needed then. The bad cold mysteriously vanished after the meal. Nipper, the dog didn’t bark at me even once. I almost mistook him for a well made soft toy. I loved Nipper and apparently he too took an instant liking for me. Rishabh’s comment on him being a very class conscious dog did give me an ego boost. I’m waiting for the day Nipper brings his offsprings into this world. Rishabh! are you reading? :)

It’s a hectic week coming up. I’m on holiday from Friday for an entire week. A wedding in Ludhiana and later some time with my in-laws in Dehradun. I’m looking forward for that simple pleasure in a bowl of chicken soup from K C soup bar. I hope the weather is cold in Dehradun because I didn’t enjoy the soup last summer as much as I did in the winter.

I have this funny habit of cleaning up my PC just before a vacation. In the process, I discovered this video. I don’t remember watching it before. It is a Greek short film ‘What is that?’ (with English subtitles), simple and thoughtfully made.

I’m sure almost everyone can relate to it. I have a grandmother whose memory is giving up on her. She fails to recognize people and has no grasp of time. Most often she confuses the past with the present and tells things over and over till she drives my mother crazy. But I have all the patience in the world for her for once she was the loving, doting grand mom who was always on her toes while I chased the butterflies.
