Stranger Things Have Happened

Today is Navratri Kanjak where young, pre-pubescent girls go to neighborhood homes for blessings and offerings. There's a lot of mismatched information online but basically the girls come to the home, a prayer is said, their feet are touched and they give the adults a blessing. We participated in this today and I woke up at 7 am so I didn't miss it. I went out on the terrace for fresh air and watched the door so I could see when the kids came.

Somehow I missed them and when I got tired of waiting I went down to shower only to find out I had missed them. One girl came in while I was down there but I had missed the main festivities. It was a little disappointing.

After going back upstairs the weirdest thing happened. Chachi came up and brought me prasad and put the orange stuff (tilak) on my forehead. She hasn't spoken to me in 3 months and only just two days ago failed to even acknowledge my existence when we were both on the terrace together. I did notice Ashu started talking to me a couple of days ago but that wasn't much. I'm guessing this means their war against us is over?? I'm not sure how to take it.

Things are getting back to normal between me and MIL but I'm still not back to the contentment with her I was at before. I'm still not ready to go back to being chummy with her. I'm still not eating anything she cooks and I've almost completely quit cooking in her kitchen. I've found other ways to live and the weather's warmed up so I don't need or want hot food often. Work's keeping me busy so it's easier to not have to take long breaks to go down and cook in a hot, sweaty kitchen every day.

Other than that not much has been going on around here. It's been fairly quiet in the house and I've been working so much I haven't gotten into the drama. I've heard about some of it but nothing was very interesting.
