It was a regular summer week with work, summer school, swim practice.
Ryan successfully completed second week of summer biology. Four more weeks to go.
It has rained off and on and I feared my flower plants will drown. They did not and with today’s sun, they are radiant again.
I have kept myself busy at work and that helps to keep sadness at bay. Except when I shelve books, my mind fills up with old memories of my parents.
Sean and I talked more about “what’s next” for us.
I went shopping alone on Friday, a chore I generally despise but I quite enjoyed myself this time. Ma was surely smiling at my transformation.
Talking to Gouri, mashi, Breshpati and Khushi brings comfort. Gouri is so smart, she set the new wifi password in baba’s phone and tablet. She does not know any of her alphabets, never went to school, never learnt to read. I wish she would go to school but she is unwilling. I will continue to drop hints.
Gouri got her first Covid vaccine.
Khushi sends me photos of ma and baba with her. She seems to cherish her memories of them.
Gouri is nurturing baba’s plants. She often sends me photos of flowers.
Sahana, Sean and I went to our sweet, little downtown for a leisurely stroll, dinner at our favorite Syrian restaurant followed by locally made ice cream. The evening was picturesque with strawberry pink clouds casting pink glow on the earth. Ryan stayed home to mow the lawn and waste time on phone.
We celebrated July 4th in National zoo cooing at the antiques of baby panda as she tried to waddle after her mom. She was so sweet.
I brought back a pile of books again from the library. We shall see how much I read.
I have finished the entire series of Downton Abbey. What a great series. What should I watch next and why did I wait so long to watch it? Tonight I hope to watch Downton Abbey movie.
It is amazing that life goes on despite….
That is it for me this week. Hope you all have a great week and your list of “goods” is long.
