Five on Friday

Monday:
The day started as a normal day. It had been weeklong. On the top of that it was a holiday. So, I just sat back and simply passed the time. While sitting on the carpet in my bedroom, I was thinking about my childhood. One little funny incident still I can remember though it happened decades ago. At that time my sister was a 1st grader, and I was just three years old. Both of us decided to steal some food from the shelf. However, mom was always present there. After much thought, my sister decided to steal in the afternoon, when mom used to take little nap. When mom went to bed, my sister asked to keep eyes on mom, so that she could steal the food. I was watching mom, and all of a sudden mom changed side. I got so scared and I shouted to warn my sister. As I shouted so suddenly, my sister also got scared, and she tried to climbed down from the shelf in hurry. In course of that action she tumbled down from top along with some fine china, and containers. What was consequence I couldn't remember. My sister told that mom spared me, but she was in trouble.

Tuesday:

After a long time I felt to paint. However, when I opened my paint box, I found that I didn't have any blue color, which I needed to paint cloud. So I put back the canvas. Then I decided to do some cross stitch. I chose one design, where I needed blue floss. When I opened by floss box there was no blue floss. Again nothing I could find to do. So, I was sitting on the carpet and pondering over to find something to do. Again I remembered another incident,which was fun to me, bur that gave a cold chill to my mom. I don't know how old I was at that time, may 3 or 4 years old. My granny used to live near to us, but not that much near that a three years old could walk all alone. Anyway, one fine afternoon my sister took permission from mom, and took me to granny's home. What we did I couldn't remember, but suddenly I decided to go back home. I walked all the way home. When my mom asked my where my sister was, I told that she was still with granny. Then mom realized that I walked back all the way alone. On the other side granny already started searching me frantically. Anyway, mom sent her message that I already reached home.
Wednesday:

As yesterday I couldn't do any kind of craft work I wanted to do. So, I went Michaels'. As you know I have a great weakness to this store. However, this time I was determined not to buy any other stuff apart from paint and floss. Still I bought an extra spool of thread to make bead jewelry.
Thursday: 

At last I sat down in the afternoon to do cross stitch after a long time. I have big collections of cross stitch pattern. Though I chose one pattern on Wednesday, still I rummaged over all the other designs. Then I decided to stick on the pattern which I chose before. Hopefully, I would finish quickly.
This is for all my blogger friends



Friday:

yehhh!! At last Friday. As usual I was super busy on Friday.  From cooking, cleaning, planting potatoes, I finished an ample of works in the morning. I really amazed myself by finishing all the jobs within 12:00. Evening was fun-filled. We had a plan to go to Diversity Fair at my son's school. However, in the evening what happened to my son I couldn't understand, he just denied to go. Both of us tried to convince him, but we couldn't bend him. Anyway, I went to the fair all alone. It was a fun filled time. As we know we are coming from different cultures, different countries. To know the others' cultures , food, festivals, rituals, the PTA organizes Diversity fair every year. The parents usually volunteer  for that. This year Canada, India, Netherlands, Chile, Sweden, Palestine, Wales, United Kingdom , and Ireland participated in the fair. I'm thinking about writing in details about the fair. If you would like to low about the fair please let me know.

Wow! What a week.
Loved hearing about your childhood memories. As I went through similar "incidents," it makes me appreciate my mom and her abundant patience.
Yes, I usually walk out of Michael's with something unplanned, but I can't seem to help myself either.
Enjoyed seeing your lovely cross-stitch! Hope to see more.
Love the photo of the cup! Thank you. And the wooden shoes are beautiful. Would love to hear about the fair.
And Krishna, this blog post, like your others, is so well written & organized and yet so creative! It's a pleasure to visit.

That cross stitch is so pretty! You started and finished that in a day? Wow! I remember when I was a kid finally being allowed to walk to my aunt's house but I had to call when i got there and half the time I forgot and my aunt would get a panicked call from my mom. So anytime I would get there my aunt would say, 'call your mom'. lol

Krishna, I love reading your stories...I think it is good to write them down for your next generation to enjoy and know more about you. I can understand exactly what you mean about visiting a craft shop!! I was wondering today why I have to have so many craft projects going on at the same time too ?! ...and my conclusion was that I only have a pair of hands... Let's finish one this week, shall we, Krishna? :)

Barbara said...

I like Michaels too....can't get out of that store without a basketful!

I enjoyed the stories of your childhood. You and your sister were quite adventurous! I used to enjoy doing cross stitch but now all my family has too many of my pieces so I quit! I like the colors in yours.
