its christmassy.

its hectic.
slowly starting to gather,
organize the stuff 
i have been picking up
from places, for months,
to put under the tree...
...where we will all gather,
on Christmas morning.

married for almost nine years now, 
i kind of know
exactly how each one of us will look 
that morning.

acceptance. kindness. tolerance.
bound by love.
and, you have a family :)

waves a magic wand over this world,
and behold, 
everything is softer
and more beautiful.

- Norman Vincent Peale

o christmas tree,

Saturday mornings come with misgivings. more so, when you have left too many things left undone over the week. so, you try and escape more from the grind of routine. any thing that does not make you want to see things the way they are.

stray. thoughts.

    morning light is the cosiest. 
warms the deep insides of my being. 
re assures.
so much so that with a warm cup 
of steaming goodness in my hands,
i don't feel like getting up
or, moving.
savoring the moment is so good
every chore of mine remains undone!

sweet somethings

and, the countdown has begun.
it is time. 
am ditching the tree this time. 
something else. 
too many ideas.
little time, and, littler skills to execute.
but, hello excitement!

it is time

cannot. stop. obsessing. about. mornings.

Saturday morning, the first day of the last month of the year. my cousins  and friends abroad have put up their christmas trees and hung up their stockings! i have not begun to think of 2013, but, if there were three wishes i got as a gift, i would first ask for me to be a neat freak. if only!

and, the second wish would be for me to wake up (a tad smoothly) early in the mornings. i can jump out of bed on school days, but otherwise it is right next to impossible for me. 

i think, no, i feel, quite strongly, that if i could master the two habits of waking up earlier and putting things back in their place, properly, 40% of my problems would disappear. my mind would feel as open  as my clutter-free surroundings. and, the rest of my problems... oh well! nothing is in my hands is it?




anyone know who can grant me these wishes?
