It must be raining somewhere…
For the first time in nearly two months, the breeze feels cool. Certainly not as cool as we would like it to be but a definite improvement over the thick moisture laden hot winds that was making life impossible.
For once the Met Department seems to have got it right…
‘Tuesday evening would see a drop in temperatures. Possibility of a thunderstorm in certain areas. The much awaited Monsoon rains should reach Delhi by late Wednesday.’
So for us the countdown begins….
Mummy was at home the entire day today. She hasn’t been feeling very well for the last couple of days. Sort of a heat exhaustion. So she decided to take the day off. We wish she would learn to take a proper off if she wants to get better soon.
What good is it staying at home if you keep running around the house doing things that can actually wait till you’re better?
We are certain she has an obsessive compulsive disorder when it comes to cleaning, tidying up and stuff like that.
Anyway, Mummy at home doing stuff is better than no Mummy at all. So, when even after much cajoling and coaxing she refused to come and sleep, we settled down for our nap hoping she would take a hint. And finally she did!
We did some reading today. Not on the net or on our Kindle but some REAL reading. It always feels good..the feel of a real book. We hardly ever get the time to read real books these days. We finished off one that we have been reading for like a hundred years now – ‘The Case of the Howling Dog’. A Perry Mason story. And then we re-read bits of this wonderful book ‘ The Life and Letters of Tofu Roshi’ by Susan Moon.
One day when we can manage some time we would like to tell you about this book in detail. We often hear people speak about life changing books. Well, this is one book that has changed many a things in the way we view life. It has taught us so much about Zen philosophy in a simple, playful way that we keep going to this book over and over again. Even when there are so many other new books in our shelves that need to be read.

Well, it is half past seven in the evening and the sun hasn’t yet retired for the night.
Isn’t it tired from straining all day long? Time for our evening walk. Daddy isn’t back from the hospital yet. We think we will wait for him to come home so we can go out to the park together. It is much more fun when he comes along. With him around, Mummy doesn’t freak out when we run after squirrels and birds like she does when she’s alone with us. Not that we will find many squirrels or birds that will stay up to play with us after dark.
But then,you never know. We might just find a bat!
