Doing absolutely NOTHING…

That’s right! To be precise…I’m doing nothing…nothing that excites me…nothing that is worthwhile! It’s just frustrating! Work has taken a backseat due to certain changes in department and so…the lull after the storm…err…the hectic work for the last few months!

Well…in a way, this is a welcome break! I’m enjoying the chilly winters and lazying around (in office) watching TV, playing games, blogging and exploring the web for what not! Good learning, must say!

Missing out on all the winter fun…no movies, shopping, eating out and roaming around…all that I badly wanna do. Coming to office every day and doing nothing…’tis boring like hell! The morning traffic, the continuous honking of cars and buses irritates me like anything…wish I could just spend a few days in solitude…but guess that’s an utopia at the moment 🙂

So, I’d just look up to 2012 with all new hope and enthusiasm…hope it rings in happiness, love, prosperity, gains and good luck!

 

Winter…Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness

I always associate winter with Keats’ poetry.  It’s a beautiful season and time of the year, complete with its colors, music, aroma and beautiful warm sunshine. The weather is great and everything just seems lively and romantic! I love to indulge in all those lip smacking foods and festivities. And how can I dismiss the prolonged and undisturbed sleep under warm and fluffy blankets? That’s simply incomparable!

There’s Christmas, New Year’s Eve, New Year and a whole lot of ongoing winter celebrations. Winter is warm, sensuous and redolent with the sweet smell of flowers and all other good things that this season has to offer. Winter always brings back happy memories from childhood…the way we used to yearn for cakes, pastries and wait eagerly for school Yuletide parties and celebrations. That was awesome! As a child, the aroma of freshly baked cakes was irresistible! It still is 🙂 I still love to explore all the cake and pastry shops in town in search of that gorgeous piece of cake. I try to prepare cakes in my own special way. So winter for me is indeed special! Hence I welcome the “Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness” with all enthusiasm and wish that it stays for quite some time!
