Currently / 3.27 pm. We just got back from spending the afternoon at a friend's place, where we had some delicious food and plenty of fun. Now, everyone is snoozing the afternoon off, so this is my cue to get some blogging done.
Update at 3.33 pm: I guess a cup of tea will go well with writing.
Update at 3.41 pm: Of course, the baby has to wake up right this minute.
Update at 4.03 pm: Tea's ready and the baby is sleeping again, so blogging continues.
This past week / Has been wonderful. The pace at work has slowed down, enough so that I took a day off on Friday. Getting this long weekend for myself has been nice. I got some things done around the house, I spent a lot of time with Shreya, and I started a new book - Eleanor by Jason Gurley (even if I read only a few pages). I wish I had more time off and I didn't have to go back to work tomorrow but you can't have too much of a good thing.
Grateful for / My dad arrived here last week. It has been a long time since he had come over and it had always bummed me that he couldn't spend enough time with Shreya. So I am excited that he will be here for couple of months and can spend plenty of time with Shreya.
Celebrating / Shreya is eight months old today! She is happily crawling now and much prefers to be on her knees than be picked up. She babbles quite a bit and loves to play with anything that is out of bounds to her, so that means phones, phone cords, printer, etc. Our money tree has now been moved to the dining table because she loves pulling its leaves. Oh, and pulling Rue's hair is a favorite pastime of hers, along with playing with Rue's food and water bowl. When they tell you not to buy a lot of baby toys, they really mean it. Because babies don't care for the toys, they want the things they can't have.
Loving / That Spring is here! Technically, it's been a much warmer winter this year but this past week, it has been cherry blossoms everywhere and it's hard not to feel so happy just looking at them. I am waiting for our own Crepe Myrtles to put on their show although the Forsythias are already saying hello.
