Last week, there was a game conducted by some guys at V’s office as part of some team building activity. Each person has to tell 3 statements, 2 truths and 1 lie and the rest have to guess which is what.
Here are the statements made by V,
1. I travelled all the way to Ladakh by road
2. I put my hand into a tiger’s cage
3. I travelled without a visa to Canada
I found both the game and the statements interesting.
Now can you guess the veracity of the statements ?
And make some statements of your own too ?
Can turn out to be much more than thatWhich has happened in case of FIL
Who took up photography as a hobby post retirement
And researched about it from the basics
And joined couple of photography clubs
And went on some short and some long trips to practise the new skill
And then made his proud entry into the list of photographers whose photos were selected for the exhibition !
Here are the ones captured by FIL and that got displayed last week at State Gallery of Fine Arts at Hyderabad !
Now, isn’t this how life should be , doing what you love and loving what you do and being appreciated for what you love doing !
Couple of days back, V’s sis talked about Itsy Bitsy store at Bangalore and how she didn’t feel like leaving the store after entering and how she wanted to buy everything. It was interesting to listen to such description but I couldn’t locate it at Hyderabad and so left it.
After some days, my friend at work talked about the same store and how she shopped a lot of things online on their website. Now this piqued my interest. Within a day or two after that, V’s sis was here for the weekend and brought along different varieties of craft stuff , and talked a lot about their sale.
I couldn’t wait any longer and wanted to order something or the other from their website. So I chose these jump rings which were needed for my to-do list of earrings.
And then since I couldn’t stop with one, I went ahead with this crimper
V’s sis suggested one more, the quilling coach
And then we added some quilling strips too
And then we stopped with some loom bands !
Itsy Bitsy people were very prompt in their service and have delivered everything as promised and added a gift too 🙂 Isn’t this so sweet of them !
Now that the itch to shop has been satisfied, I need to address the next itch, to use them all.
This evening, we spent some time exploring all the stuff and A wanted to make a pair of ear-rings immediately and so here’s our first attempt at them !
The sale on Itsy Bitsy is really good, do check it out if you are looking for some craft material. I bet your hands are definitely going to itch after that 🙂
Browser issue gets fixed with re-start of the system
A phone hang gets solved with a re-start
Set top box display gets addressed with a re-start
A not-so-strong wi-fi signal gets better with re-start of router
Can life’s issues also be solved with this simple mantra, a re-start ?
Is it just the attitude and courage that’s needed to attempt a re-start
One of my numerous thoughts that keep lingering in the mind….
There was this something which V had his eyes upon and wanted to own from quite sometime. But then he hesitated considering the cost factor and not being sure whether he would actually use it to the full. After a long thinking and research , he finally bought it.
And then he learnt that people carried it in cars, went places and used it over there. So that V could try out the same on a morning, the previous night, FIL, me and V went carrying this something to the car, to try and fit it in. We failed and took it back home dragging ourselves over the stairs to the fourth floor as the lift wasn’t working that day. Seeing V’s disappointment, we decided to give it one more try with a different approach and this time, MIL also joined us. Finally, we could fit that something in ! V went ahead with his plans and had a taste of his first group activity with it !
Some more days went by in getting accessories for it, lights, water bottle holder et al .
And now, V decided to take a step further and wanted to take it to office. So he started planning for it since yesterday, took a pair of clothes to work, left the laptop there, left the car at the workplace and came home in a cab. And this morning he rode on it, yes the new found love, his new cycle, to office :), partially implementing the no car day – Thursday !
It was tougher than V had anticipated because of the upward slopes, so he used an auto for some distance midway 🙂
A new hobby , a new experience , a new something !
