Daily Prompt: State of Your Year

How is this year shaping up so far? Write a post about your biggest challenge and achievements thus far.

Year 2015 is shaping up to be be a pretty good one. In January we did not have as much snow as the previous years. February was cold, it was not unusual it’s always cold, there was no difference. March  did not come like a lion but certainly roared like a lion as it bid us goodbye till next year. We missed the lamb, I suppose nature was angry with us and did not give us a break.

I found April annoying instead of bringing Spring weather, it snowed  and was unusually cold.

And we have May, it is the nineteenth day and it hasn’t decided if it wants to be a little warmer or continue with the chilly winds. This is the year so far about the weather.

My biggest challenge so far is taming our feline Raphael, for some reason he thinks he must give us a hard time to keep us honest. He cannot be trusted, he comes into my room and starts chewing the covers of my books. Dousing him with water does not do the job, he shakes himself in the wink of an eye, ready to damage anything that comes his way.

I cannot recollect any achievement of mine which deserves mention. I can only say I’ve discovered plenty of snakes, I have to look for their enemy the mongoose.Watch this video.

Isn’t it a good one?

  1. The mongoose is a courageous beast. They remind me of the squirrels around our area.
    I do not have a love for the cold (like some people) so I understand your frustration when the weather is indecisive. But the sun shines where you are!!!

  2. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing this post. We enjoyed reading of your challenges with Raphael. And the video of the snake and the mongoose is very interesting! One can see why some martial arts traditions have chosen the mongoose to exemplify expert movement skills.

    All good wishes,


      • Dear Ranu,

        Yes, I did notice this.

        There are martial art systems from China and Indonesia which venerate the mongoose for its fighting abilities. Of course, there are also systems which venerate the snake as well :-).

        All good wishes,
