Weekend well spent

I have this problem now-a-days where I am always thinking that time is running out for us. May be it is because Mr S is so much out of station, that I feel like the daughter is missing out on all the memories that she should be creating. I love to be outdoors and seeing new places, enjoying nature and just being free. So I keep making these travel plans, which sometimes the family does not agree, but just to keep me happy they tag along. I love being out with them and really pray that they start feeling the same. We went to Big Sur on the west coast and I was thrilled to see the turquoise waters, the cool breeze, the white sand, the tall and ferocious waves, the McWay waterfall falling right into the ocean and the ride itself. Everything priceless !!

Sunday was spent lazily at home, had some friends visit us and we watched some movies ( Amir and Nim's Island ). Both movies were good.

Getting Artsy

I want to think that I am a little artsy and once in a while it is a good threapy to do something different, something colorful and something pretty. I try and involve my daughter in most of the projects. For this project, I was inspired by this :

I just used some magazines lying around in the house like "Pottery Barn", "Health" and "Time" and came up with this collage.

Turning a new leaf

.....We all do that many times in our lives. We change, we take actions to improve our lives constantly. Sunday has been good to me. It started out shaky, me yelling and screaming at my daughter, bossing her around and she refusing to finish her work ( both school and home ). But we made peace. We all went to the temple late in the afternoon, and I must say, it felt quite peaceful at the temple. On our way back, we stopped at the Miniature golf place and played a game. The weather was pleasant, the sun was setting, the sky was golden and being around with the family was the best !

Born alone, die alone.

Orson Welles quotes.......“We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone.”

How apt this sounds. Your loved ones and your friends certainly make your life worthwhile. I feel like I am blessed with loved ones, my precious little daughter and friends at times, but there are times I feel very lonely and unhappy. Happiness I know is something that we have to work towards achieving. I do try, but I am failing miserably.
