100 Happy Days: Day 97

I realised, I should not hoarde these last 3 days waiting for something great to happen to finish these 100 days blogathon.

Infact, this past Saturday has been simply awesome. We went to watch singer VijayPrakash concert about 2 hrs drive from home. The concert was obviously simply superb. I don’t remember the last time I ever gushed and crushed on anyone so much!!! Felt 16 with all that adrenaline rush again 😃

The other good part was going with another family and meeting a lot of other kannada families from our town at the temple who were all there for the same reason- lunch and then the concert. It was a day very well spent. Also, making new friends in this still new place. Am I hoping for the friends like we had in NJ? Probably not, maybe too early to have so much expectation. But its still good to know we would be welcome as a part of a larger group. I just hope that we don’t have to move from here, come July.

100 Happy Days: Day 96

Hey there! Yup, I remember very well that I have not completed this series. But what to do? There just wasn’t anything exciting happening and I wanted to wait to put something really fun here, atleast the last 5 days.

Spring is here, finally! The actual spring day we had a snow storm that dumped more snow than all the winter snow storms we had! Then the spring break happened, flu happened and there really wasn’t much to write. Why am I writing today? This weekend has been fun. Yesterday we had a gathering and Sam participated in a very well known dance drama called Punyakoti. I had made 5 gallons of masala buttermilk for all to drink. It was a fun evening, getting to meet a lot of new people. We also got invited ( for the first time here) to someone’s house for after party meet. Should I hope that we might finally be able to make some friends here?

Today, we finally checked another off our to-visit list- the Cherryblossom festival in Washington DC. It really was beautiful. We walked nearly 4 miles and put in 11k steps and took loads of pictures. Live music and lots of people, it looked like a fair, though we also managed to get a few good pics. Happy to bed today. G’nite!
