October, so far was the best month this year. Full of surprises and happiness. It had to be, being my birthday and anniversary month at the same time. The winds talk, the cool breeze speaks so much to me, filling me with positivity and excitement at the same time.
Though October started with a bit of laziness initially as I was suffering from Blogstipation :P, but I recuperated from it soon and I am so glad I did. It happens with all of us, doesn’t it?
Having your birthday and anniversary in the same week has its own perks and at the same time downside as well. Before I got married, the only thing I used to do was mellow in my own world and wait for the special day, for the surprises my friends and family prepared during this time. All I had to do was take it from them, open it, be happy about it and relish every memory that these loved ones gave me. But post wedding, I am the one who ends up thinking and planning for something special, not for me, but for my better-half- A. Though, I love every bit of doing it, yet it would be better if it would be a few more days ahead. But that’s okay.. what’s done is done.. and I know, I should have thought about it earlier.
And that’s not just it, my MIL’s birthday too lies this same month. Or to say next day of my birthday. So it’s a whole week of celebrations at our place, with cakes, flowers, friends, fun, giving and receiving gifts at the same time, shopping for myself and others as well! :)
My birthday was as special as ever. A surprised me with things I love the most in the most unexpected ways, which was quite unexpected on his part to do it! It’s truly a blessing to have him in my life. I too did something different this month.
I recently I came across a video and shared it on my timeline as well, where I learned that a single human being consumes an average of 17-18 trees of oxygen in its whole lifetime. How nice would it be if we plant a tree on our birthday every year? For nobody will cut that tree for sure and we too won’t let that happen. Plus, we can plant this much for Mother Earth! I was really touched with that video and decided to start this new legacy.
I planted a lemon tree! Okay.. it must be sounding funny to you, but had I planted a huge tree, we’d run of space in a few coming years, and then where would I have planted the rest of trees of my life? I hope you got my point?! ;) :)
October was also about meeting so many deadlines! I had to finish the syllabus at the institute along with so many writing things. I am so glad, I could complete all of them within time, a bit late, but I did.
I also watched a new series- TVF-ThePitchers. Have you guys seen this one? If not, then you have to watch it! I’ll bet you will love this one! It’s there on YouTube. And it has only 5 episodes. It came out this year only. This series is so realistic! You will fall in love with almost every character in the same. I was truly devoured in its fever for a few days- The Viral Fever (TVF).
Anniversary celebrations were great. We finally got a frame for our room with our wedding photo. And what better occasion would it be other than anniversary? A loved it!
And then there was Karwachauth! As much as I love to do, the not so usual, sringaar, this day really scares me a lot. But the day went just fine. I didn’t faint, I didn’t fall.. so it was fine and all of us had a great time by the end of the day.
The month ended with it a few more writing challenges for November. NaNoWriMo and NoMo. I really have no idea what am I going to do in the Novel writing challenge. How are you planning to go about it? Any suggestions that help me calm down?
I am still wondering where October flied. And I am so glad to have so many positive things in my life. Wonderful family, friends, my not so expressive husband, my students.
It was totally a month to remember!
What did you do all October? And if you fasted, how did it go? How are Diwali preparations coming along?
