This is one weekend that would be remembered very fondly, for multiple reasons. It was not the best. Neither was it perfect. I didn’t happen to cook any new recipes. Neither did I click snaps of the ones that I happened to cook. We didn’t go on roaming around the city. Neither did we stay home all the time. We just went by the routine but still manged to have a great weekend.
The weekend started with me awaiting eagerly for S to join me on Friday night. Inspite of the terrible back pain (thanks to the endless transition sessions, I damaged my back yet again) I managed to make Methi Roti and Parval Dopyasa. As much as I enjoyed cooking, my back was not very supportive and I had a terrible time. I couldnt bring myself to eat my dinner after my back decided to kill me slowly. After the dinner, I managed to lie down flat until S rang my mobile to say he would be home in a minute. I ran to the gate (much like a heroine from old movies) and waited to see his face with a bated breath 😛 Like a dutiful wife, I gave him a glass of water and served him his dinner immediately! (This is so unlike me :D) I then started narrating the stories of the week, while waking S up every other minute. (Now, this is so like me :D)
Saturday saw me wake up as early as 6am, feeling hungry 😦 How could I let S sleep when I am wide awake? I waited for the moment he would turn towards me and when he did, I started talking to him as if I never stopped talking through out the night. He was stunned for a minute to see me talking again, as if there is no Pause button 😀 When I told him I felt hungry, he knew I would drag him out of bed. He tried his best to make me sleep again, saying I am not really hungry but sleepy 🙄 Finally, when he could no longer hold on to my torture, he said “5 mins” and went into deep slumber – something that only S is capable of. Sigh! Thankfully, I had saved two rotis from the night before and they saved my stomach from growling further. I cleaned the kitchen, made coffee and then wanted S to be up before I made breakfast for him. The only way to wake up snoring S was to devise a master plan – washing clothes. I went to him, shook him and said I would want his tee shirt as the washing machine is still empty. Poor guy had to get up and there, my master plan worked 😀 We quickly had breakfast of upma and coconut chutney. We had good 3 hrs before lunch and we put it good use.
We sang! Yes we did. We sang along with all the songs that were being played on any music channel and that ensured we spent good one hour quickly. It was just feeling great to take the role of a hero and heroine in the song, and sing it forgetting about the rest of the world. When the energy got high from all the singing, I started dancing (read jumping :P) and soon S joined me too. In the limited space available in the living room, we managed to do some moves, laugh like kids and have lots of fun 😀 S would make fun of my move and then I would follow suit to comment on his and he would come together doing our funny moves. Never ever we have acted like this before and may be that is why, it brought us so much joy 🙂
Lunch was more of a disaster – who can spoil a simple potato fry other than me? I am not sure why but I am still blaming the potatoes 😀 Nevertheless, we had a good meal and rested for a bit before my maid showed up very early. Gone. Afternoon siesta gone. Not knowing what to do, we both discussed and decided on going for a movie – Skyfall it was. Both of us love Bond. He was introduced to me by S during our initial wedding days and I instantly fell in love with him. We both have watched every other Bond movie and thus decided to watch this on big screen. Till now, I am quite unsure if I like it. Wasn’t a typical 007 movie. Except for the intro and the climax scene, the rest of the movie was slow – untypical for a Bond movie. After 2.5hrs, we both came out of the theater looking tired. This sure calls for a good dinner right? We ate out and as always, whatever I ordered turned out bad and I shared food from S’s plate 😀
Sunday saw me cleaning home as soon as I got up, utilizing the time S was still asleep. It took me hardly an hour to bring back the order and I guess, I am most productive when I make up my mind 😀 When S got up, it was breakfast time. I had not had the chance to prepare idli/dosa batter during the week (so unlike me) and had to settle down for store bought Appam batter. It literally killed me to see Appams that were close to rubber – Second disaster in a row 😦 We went on to do some grocery shopping later and its one of the rarest sessions were we both are in same form – which means it just felt great. We shopped for such a long time that it was well past lunch time and we had to go for burgers, something that we were biting into after 2.5 months closely.
I had to give my ego some boost after the two disasters and thus ended up preparing Beetroot Halwa which was just aweeeeee-some!! I started counting the number of hrs I get to stay with S more for the evening and that made me sad, no denying there. May be thats why, I started picking up some silly fight with him which I dont even remember now. Good thing is, within couple of minutes we could sort off everything. Though I was immature in picking up a fight, we both acted well in resolving it sooner 🙂 I later made some rotis and egg curry (which turned out simply superrrrrrbbbb) and then it was time for S to leave. I didnt shed even a single tear drop and actually smiled when I said bye to him :patting myself on the back proudly:
Now, this was my weekend and I am already expecting the Friday- because its Deepaaaaaaavaliright after it 😀
