I right-away step into the kitchen. I need to prepare breakfast and so called lunch in just 45 mins 🙂 My choice for breakfast always remains to be idli/dosa with groundnut/coconut chutney. Its so hard to compromise myself. Coming to lunch.. I prepare anything and everything that can be done fast! I am notorious in office for the ready-made sambar rice that I make. I try to be healthy-healthy conscious 😛 its a must to have some vegetable for lunch.. mostly half cooked with less oil and chilly (trying to be healthy-healthy again; Sometimes I prepare so weird combinations of rice and vegetable 😛 ). Most of the times, both my cookers would be due cleaning, waiting in the sink. Then, I would have an additional task for cleaning first followed by cooking. By the time I run back and forth from Kitchen-to-Fridge-Kitchen-Microwave-Sink-Mixie-Fridge-Kitchen.. it would be time to wake up my dear S 🙂 the running race and shouting competition from Kitchen-to-Bedroom then begins. “Its already 6.45, are you getting up or not???” would be the first sentence in a softer tone. Regular minute by minute time updates begin next. Finally I go stand next to him, shake him with full force and make sure he is not sleeping anymore. :):) (I feel so happy waking up someone.. double the happiness when its S :P:P)
Once S is off to get ready, I start preparing breakfast. I love my dosas cold…. 😛 I need to be in office as early as 8Am too. So, I take my turn to get ready after setting up breakfast on the table. Finally when S is rushing up.. I do my small (very small) pooja while he manages with the shoes and socks business. Next task is to get the lunch boxes ready.. Finding the right lid, the cover.. and the spoon. I turn up into mini CID Shakuntala 😛 Finally S sets off.. Oooophh!!!
Next, I chant my regular slokas… takes around 30 – 40 mins. Rush up with the breakfast (I love having chutney in equal proportions to idli/dosa:):):) ) . I just dont find time for dressing up myself. To wear some random clothes and make sure to put a pottu.. is all I’m doing every morning. The next process is to lock the home.so many locks!! make sure I am done with all of them and start running to office-Needless to mention abt the traffic and multiple times I need to cross the road. Within 15 mins, I need to be in office attending a meeting. 😦
Around 5.30Pm, I can gladly call it a day at office and rush back home. The very sight of so many leaves in the Portico calls in for the sweeping activity.. 😦 Next… Kitchen sink welcomes me with vessels over flooding.:( It would be soon dinner time.. We start the i-am-not-interested-in-deciding-the-dinner-menu 🙂 conversation to decide the menu myself. I do prepare a variety of dinner items (as I told you all, I love cooking 😛 harassing ppl with food 😛 ). Once I am done with plans for next day’s lunch. I can say good night to myself 🙂
Life is turning out to be a routine and I am feeling myself turning into a machine. ok ok.. These are all the tasks I enjoy doing. I am not cribbing here. I just want to bring myself some change which could make me more organised, feel relaxed and do my work with gracefulness and calmness. I am enjoying this new phase of my life and I think the transition so far has been smooth enough! 🙂 I am feeling responsible lately.. so, its a good change!! 🙂 🙂
