She filled his glass from the bottle.

He looked at what was in front of him, his eyes wide open with excitement.

She said “Shhhh” , put a finger on her lips and pulled him down.

This post is a part of the Blog-a-Prompt week at Marathon Blogging. Today’s prompt is Spicy!


I plan to…

– learn one new thing every day for the next 7 days! Lets see how creative I can be and how enriched I am at the end ­čśë Why am I doing this? Just to add some fun into every day life!!

– visit other blogs (I have been very lazy in doing that) and read, catch up and comment!

– work on finding a weekend getaway with something to see and do in winter in New Zealand, preferably not too much of a drive from Wellington.

– work on my resume and send it out – that would be step one in looking for a job.

– have a family chat at the dinner table, about some basic rules and guidelines that the 3 of us need to follow in home and outside.

– go to the library and pick books for N. We are done with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I also want to see the movie based on the book, with N.

– catch up on my reading! I am still on my Douglas Adams and I want to read all of these books next (not necessarily in this order) –
