Thinking positively #MondayMusings

There is a crispness in the air

A nip so slight it’s almost not there .

Ms Papaya sleeps

Parrots screech

Girls from the school across the road march Left, Left, Left , Right, Left

The bread man knocks and hands me a loaf Fresh from the bakery, all soft and warm

School buses begin to rumble and

A motorbike whizzes past .

In my kitchen, the kettle boils , my coffee perks.

And steps of children running upstairs , mingle with newspapers rustling

Left left left right left .

The sounds slowly recede into the background as more noises roar down the road instead .

A new morning breaking , a new week starting

How wonderful it is to be up today.

Looking out the balcony, I watch the sky turn blue each day.

The greyness vanishing , the clouds whitening and

gradually vanishing

into nothingness

As sunshine fills my days again.

After a long while I was woken up this morning by Ms Papaya who herself was awake since 5 am! I woke up reluctantly as I was tired after an exhausting and busy


After my traumatic experience with a blogging challenge I shouldn’t have attempted, I de-stressed with a night out to dinner with young friends who think about things so differently and positively.

So staring out while Ms Papaya slept for a second round, I felt the freshness come in from the outside and fully house with happiness.

Does this happen to you on a Monday morning ?

I’d love to hear your thoughts about waking up on Monday.

Sharing positive thoughts this Monday morning from a Mumbai that is waking up.

Happy Monday all!

A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!


  1. What an uplifting way to start a Monday morning. Your post almost inspired me to do a Tuesday morning jig. I love Mondays too and enjoy getting back on track with my writing, as I usually take a writing break on weekends.

    Love the shots, and the lyrical poetry. Hope you are having a terrific Tuesday too, Sunita. Happy week! <3

  2. That was an endearing start to the post and a positive ending. I have often wondered from your photos how tall is the building where you live because you seem to be living in a building situated over a high hill overlooking the whole city.
    Frankly speaking, I love waking up on Monday mornings. I look forward to pack the dabbas and send husband and son out of home and have lots of me time. For most Mondays of the year, I love this day because I get a chance to take a dive in my mind, fish out thoughts, put them into words and display on the blog plate. I love Mondays for the Mondays 🙂

  3. Blessed mornings to you my friend; loved the pics and the way you have linked the lightening sky ones to suit the lines of the poem!

    My monday mornings are usually grumpy as I didnt want the weekend to go away 😉
