Spare Moments

As a Sahm, who has been tracking her time, I realized I do have time: just in frequent, tiny bursts. Taking a lead from Laura Vanderkam’s tips to plan activities for leisure; I decided to be deliberate about how I spend my free time (or more appropriately freeze time)!

Like spare change, spare moments add up to so much! 

What better than this blog to monitor my efforts and share my tiny triumphs! And what better time than now?

Today, I got some ‘freeze time’, as my child napped on me. Getting up would wake my angel and cause a tantrum, and deprive me of some down time. So, I used that time wisely. Thanks to my stash of ebooks, I raced through Chandler Bolt’s bestseller Book Launch! Yayy! Win-win!

Hoping to inspire others to plan their spare moments and motivate myself to stay focused by sharing this publicly, Thanks for Reading! 

Do share your methods and techniques to use your spare moments in the comments below. I can always use handy tips!

Good Friday, New Year, Vishu & more

Greetings everyone! It’s Good Friday! And Tamil New Year and Vishu for people from the southern part of India! While the actual significance and customs are very different, it is a special day for so many people! So, here’s wishing everyone peace, good health and prosperity!

I am making some sweet dishes and praying as part of our traditions. But more importantly, I will be spending the day specially thanking God for His many blessings! I try to count my blessings every day but on special occasions, I sit down at the altar in our home and thank the Lord properly!

On that humbled and grateful note, Adieu! Enjoy the weekend ahead!

Raise your hand if you love being ahead of a deadline? I definitely do. That is why this week’s post is a short update on my Reading Challenge for 2017.

Just looking at that ‘ahead of schedule’ statement is giving me a high! Yippee!

While I have updated my Books Read- 2017 Page, I shall save you the bother of leaving this page and continue reading.

I am so ecstatic and can’t wait to keep this winning streak going! True, it’s not like winning an Olympiad or Noble Prize. But, we should not always wait for Himalayan triumphs. The numerous little joys add up to more than the adrenaline high of the few grand occasions.

On that happy note, wishing all those reading this post, a happy week ahead! And do remember to enjoy the rest of the weekend. Make these hours count too!
