Mornings start early these days and nights seem to get even shorter.. by the time I am falling deep into the REM cycle of sleep, a hungry sleepy little R reaches for me with small cooing sounds and softest little hands. She moves like a magnet with me, as though attached to me by some unseen magnetic force. I move further towards P, she moves further in into me. So much so, I usually don’t have space to turn. Turns out I also have a pretty bad case of tennis elbow since the past 4 months now. It’s painful. In spurts. Comes and goes. Is better when my arm is straight but let’s face which new mom’s (am I still a new mom!? ) arm is ever free to be kept straight. My BFF these days in a diclofenac spray and crepe bandage. We woke up at 6:15 today.. and no I am not a morning person at all. I don’t like early mornings. My body feels outta rhythm. My mind totally outta sync. A rhythm,an easy pace that comes naturally to me after 8 am is missing at 6 am. We went out and sat on the porch, looked at my finally rearranged pots and the lush, unvirginal green, flowers popping out in white, yellow, pink and reds to say hello to my baby. It was a bit of a quiet meditation moment for me.. baby was up but quiet, I was up but still. The garden was up and gorgeous. I have no idea where 3 hours went by. But here we are, got the baby ready after her morning massage and feeding her as I type this out. Breakfast is besan ka chila & roasted tomato garlic chutney, stuffed mushroom spinach omelette for them. Me?? I needed something seriously cold and uplifting. And I didn’t want to eat. So this gorgeous pink drink is allllll mine! Dragon fruit +banana + blueberry smoothie sweetened with dates, flavoured with ginger, mint, lemon and finally finished with a little fruit salt. Cold. Cold. Sweet and sour. Filling and healthy. And oh so pink!!! Day is looking better! 😊 Have a super wonderful week my friends. Xo, S.
