~head in the clouds
I’ve spent a week with my head in the clouds, silly sheepish smiles and absent minded walks on an imaginary red carpet. In an bit of daze, you see, on what to do next. Tomorrow I’d sketch some ideas for pictures and I will create them one by one. Tonight, like every other night of the week, two cups of coffee and a cookie jar filled to the brim (with chips, not cookies) are going to be my best friends. You’ve got this, girl!

What are your weekend plans? I am hoping to read Ponti after thinking about new ideas.

Ever get the feeling that the world is passing by and you are frozen in the moment wondering what to do next? Happens to all of us. We’ll thaw and move soon enough.

I eat books and drink coffee and eat some more. That pretty much sums up everything about me; this is the most apt portrait of my life.

Contrary to the serene look on the bookish face, I have been grinning like a Cheshire Cat because of the Instagram feature. (See my Stories). It feels surreal that something I created has crossed 3.2 million views in less than a day. WOW. And such an honour to be featured on Instagram’s birthday. It is a dizzying experience. I am slowly getting through all of your wonderful DMs. You spoil me really. Thanks for being part of this journey. Hello to my new friends. Can’t wait to get to know you better. (I have so many things to say. I’ll compose a better worded caption the next time I promise because right now my brain is asjkdlkkksfsfaysteyeijslaktttuishpslspl).

Most important, did you have coffee today?

Some evenings I drink tea and watch pineapple turtles swimming on the bed. What was the highlight of your day/yesterday?

Do you see what I see? I was skimming through the camera roll and spotted the stony face. I hadn’t noticed it when I was taking the picture and now I feel like @made_by_helga .

Caption this. What is the stony face thinking?

~toys and magic
{Ad} You’ve heard me sing praises of The Toymakers which was a favourite read last year. I have good news - The stunning paperback is out from @eburybooks now. The novel, set in London during World War1, is filled with magic and wonder and whimsy. It also addresses some dark themes. Imagine - paper trees that sprout up, toy soldiers that fight, and patch work dogs that talk. That’s as magical as it gets. So yes, this novel is a perfect one to curl up with especially on a cold night. I highly recommend the read. A big cup of tea on the side is also recommended. (Review on Stories if you are more curious ).

What were your favourite toys of childhood? Mine were a doll, a flapping parrot that repeats what we say (it was magical. Now I know it just recorded it) and a fishing game. .

~wobble, toddle
A choppy, jiggly, wobbly clip of reading on the move. Do you read while traveling? I read in trains and planes but never in cars or buses. Quite a restless reader too. I finished this whole book over the many subway rides through NYC last month, so yes! reading bits and pieces on commutes go a long way. -
-
PS: Before you ask, the book is Swimming among stars by Kanishk Tharoor.

What is better than good books and more good books? I’ve been reading lesser but on the brighter side, my new reads have been fantabulous. Here are some five star reads that I loved recently:
~Normal People
~The Poppy War
~The Seven husbands of Evelyn Hugo
~Latitudes of Longing (current read; might be a 4 or 4.5 ⭐️)
-
-
Let’s trade favourites. Did you have a five star experience recently? Coffee? Book? A place?

~life in suitcases 
Nah, we aren’t on a travel round the world adventure (I wish) but regular adults trying to be clever and maybe making stupid decisions. I’ve been staying with some of my best friends and I can’t describe how amazing it is to chat up after so long. Seriously! We had no idea there was so much to talk; be it over tea or half yawning through midnight. Plus for the rest of the year there are weddings, functions, many work desks, all kinds of food and many journeys (Christmas too, but is it too early to count that in?). Life in suitcases should be fun.
-
What are you looking forward to this month?

PS: If you have my residential address in your books, please delete it. I won’t be having a permanent one till the end of the year. 😘

~unInstagrammable

Behind the scenes are always the same. After every picture, there is mess - props lying around until they wither or get eaten or stolen or tripped upon or in reality, until I need them again. Welcome to the Instagram life.

~favourite picture from my holiday last month.

I saw the high windows, the stairs and the wall and I couldn’t rest until this brilliant colour pop (Yes, I am in love with those shorts😍) was captured.

Do you have colours that make you head over heels in love with the object or those that you have aversion to? I love green grasslands and pastures and veggies (even broccoli) but I cannot ever imagine myself drinking matcha or eating pesto because of the colour. Maybe I should at least try them out? What about you?
