Reflections- June

It was a month that started with the hustle bustle of load many guests in the house. So many elders, so many kids and too many people in the house to spend their vacations at the same time! Scary as it may sound, but it was total fun. When my day started and when it ended, I have no idea. Playing Ludo till 4 in the morning, having golgappa party, jhalmuri party, classes, dance practice for the wedding, market, shopping, packing for the was crazy. And fun. 
These are the times, I believe, when family bonds with everyone. a little effort and a little help from everyone does wonders. Sitting around with everyone, chilling out, relaxing with every one, sharing their experiences, recipes, naughty gossips- it all becomes a part of family reunion. And I loved every bit of it :)

Later, there was a wedding in Calcutta, about which you can read here. I made a new friend there, for lifetime. Coming back trying to settle down was my priority, but again had to go my hometown due to an emergency. All is well now. I spent a lot of time with my parents and my brother and shared a lot. This time, I did not meet any of my friends in the city.. maybe I wanted the entire time for my family, maybe I didn't care enough to call and ask if anyone was in town. I may sound a bit odd, but it was a time that totally belonged to my family. I completed all the stuff that was there on my to-do list and met a few relatives. Something very tricky happened or rather, it didn't happen, but I observed something and I found it totally tricky. Will describe in some other post.

 I was happy to be home (though my worked suffered a lot, but everything seems to be on track now). A, came to visit my parents. And his friends came the other day. We celebrated the anniversary of a dear friend. It was a blast altogether. Friends. Good times. Fun. It was perfect. I came back with new hopes and aspirations for my dreams. I discovered new bloggers and read some amazing stuff on-line.
I feel so blessed about getting into writing. It gives me immense peace and contentment.. with myself and everybody around.

How did June treat you? What did you do all month?

  1. great! weddings are fun :)

    btw what is 'jhalmuri?'

    1. Yes they are :)

      Jhalmuri is a form of bhelpuri originated in Calcutta but it's prepared without mint and tamarind chutney.. I hope that clears.. :)
