Funny happenings, beautiful coincidences, all in a day

I'd downloaded this ringtone from the internet and set it as my alarm tune. I'd set my alarm for 7:30 am and the song started playing but a bit more clearer and longer than the ringtone was. It felt soooooooo good. And then I remembered, I had changed the alarm tone to "radio", and the coincidence was that Radio City played this song exactly at 7:30 am! Ummmm, I was already in love with this day!
Here goes the song for all those who understand and love it.
aye saala
abhi abhi huaa yaqeen ki aag hai mujh mein kahi
hui subaah main chal gaya
suraj ko main nigal gaya
ruu-ba-ruu roshni heyy - 2

jo gumshuda-sa khwaab tha
voh mil gaya voh khil gaya
woh loha tha pighal gaya
kichhaa kichhaa machal gaya
sitaar mein badal gaya
ruu-ba-ruu roshni heyy - 2

(dhuaan chhataa khula gagan mera
nayi dagar naya safar mera
jo ban sake tu hamsafar mera
nazar mila zara) - 2

aandhiyon se jaghad rahi hai lau meri
ab mashaalon si bhad rahi hai lau meri
naamo nishaan rahe na rahe
ye kaaravaan rahe na rahe
ujaale mein pee gaya
roshan huaa jee gaya
kyon sehte rahe
ruu-ba-ruu roshni heyy - 2
dhuaan chhataa khula gagan mera
nayi dagar naya safar mera
jo ban sake tu hamsafar mera
nazar mila zara
ruu-ba-ruu roshni heyy - 2
aye saala - 4

Sleepy Cat (not the software company acquired by Oracle)
I go outside for a lovely, sun-basking morning stroll and happen to see this...

So I zoom in and see this...

Now I love to see soft, furry cats, and marvel equally at their larger and stronger cousins, but when I see something so serene in the morning? I wish I could sit in the open air with the golden sunrays pampering my skin, place the sleepy cat in my lap and stroke it's back, and let the calmness seep into me. Hmmmmmmm, beautiful morning dreams, these.

Fairies nowadays gift dish-washing liquids instead of rescuing princesses
This evening mom and I went to the grocery to buy some washing powder. Just as I was telling mom that I also needed to buy a dish-washing bar or liquid, the shopkeeper hands me the washing powder pack, followed by a lovely bottle-green-colored dish-cleaning liquid... that comes free with it! Bliss!

The night in shining splendor
I'm out on the terrace the same night, and this is what shines upon me...

Then the clouds move away in Sepia mode :)

So I decide to go further back into the B&W mode...

Hmmmmmm, reminds me of the 1960s movie sets :D

Relaxing into the night
As per my (almost) daily routine, I sat on a chair dipping my feet in a bucket of warm water, and reading. Just thought of calling a couple of my very good friends back in Pune. I did, and somehow, after a long time, it felt sooooooo nice! I topped it off with another chapter from Biplane, by Richard Bach. And I was all ready for the eternal rest, if it came to me that night. I felt so contended with everything!
